A day will come when your shower will leak continuously no matter what you do. After trying all DIY solutions, you will be left with the option of hiring a professional. If you are in the dilemma of finding the right leaking shower repairs services from the many in the market, we have some critical questions that will lead you to the right regruot services. Read on.
What Is Your Estimated Total Cost?
It is my advice to all homeowners that they should be careful with the quotes they get from services providers. A good regrout professional will ask to see the problem and analyze it before giving you a quote. The other plumbers who send quotations before even asking details or pictures about your problems should not be trusted. A good quote should include the price of the new spare parts needed, cost of labor and time to be taken.
Who Will Be Doing the Work?
If the company you approached has helpers or trainees, it is key to ask the management who will be handling your issue. If you are not careful with some companies, they send trainees who are not experienced to train themselves with your project. Ask to be allowed to talk to the person who will be handling your project.
Are You Licensed?
The law requires that all service providers to have a license and to have passed all the licensing tests. If the professional does not have a license, it means that they have an issue you do not know about them. You cannot risk hiring such a person or company. Besides that, be careful with newly licensed regrout services, but many times their rates are cheaper than of experienced ones.
Are You Insured?
If a company gives you a yes as an answer, they should be willing to share their up to date insurance documents. Hiring someone who is not insured means that you are ready to be held liable for any accident that happens to the staff or third parties. Few or even none of us is prepared for such. To be safe, always hire insured and bonded regrout companies.
Are Your Charges Hourly or Fixed?
It is essential to get this clear to avoid surprises when the job is done. If they are doing a fixed cost, it should be a combination of labor and spare parts. If they are doing the per hour rates, they should be clear about how long it will take them to finish the job.
