Sewer line problems can wreak havoc inside and outside of your home or business. Replacing a sewer line is a large investment in your property, so it is worth your time to do a little research to find a reliable company you can trust.
Check Credentials and Insurance
Working on a sewer is different than working with indoor plumbing and requires additional licenses and certifications. Sewer repair companies need to work with various state, county, and municipality public sewer and water systems, so make sure the company is qualified to work in your area.
Like anyone working on your home or business, it is important that they are insured. Sewer repair and excavation involves a certain amount of risk to the workers, so it is of the utmost importance that the company is fully insured.
History of the Company
A company that has been around for years, or even decades, has a reputation that has been cultivated over many years. Their staying power is a testimony to the quality of their work.
Recommendations and Reviews
In addition to checking to see if the sewer repair company is rated favorably by the Better Business Bureau (BBB), look for customer reviews. Google Reviews, Facebook, Angie’s List, and Home Advisors are standard places to look for customer reviews for this type of work. Checking with friends and neighbors for recommendations is always a good way to get a promising referral.
Availability and Guarantee
Sewer repairs often need to be dealt with immediately. An experienced company knows this and will be available 24/7 to take care of your needs. Reputable companies will have a complete estimate of work to be done and a warranty of their services.
Do they use up to date technology to do repairs?
Sewer repairs are much less invasive than in the past. Look for companies that have trained professionals in using the least invasive methods for repair or replacement. This will save money in labor costs and will limit the amount of upheaval on your property.
