Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning offers a checklist for choosing the right home service partner

A license, insurance and positive reputation are key boxes to check when selecting services, say Brooklyn plumbing and HVAC experts

BROOKLYN, NY, September 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Petri Plumbing, heating, air conditioning and unclogginga family home service business brooklyn and manhattan since 1906, asserts that homeowners should seek the reliability, experience and positive reputation of any home service contractor they consider hiring to ensure that the work will be done correctly and will be guaranteed and insured.

Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning says homeowners should check that a home service company is licensed, insured and has a positive reputation when deciding to contract with them.

“Often times when a homeowner, especially a new homeowner, needs to hire a plumber or an HVAC repairman, they are under pressure when deciding who to hire,” said Michel Petri, owner of Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning. “Their pipes are leaking or their air conditioning is broken on the hottest day of the year and they need someone quick and affordable. But that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t stop and do their research. before entrusting their most valuable asset to someone they’ve never done business with before.”

Petri said it’s ideal for homeowners to research multiple home service companies in their area long before an emergency occurs. But, even if they have to decide quickly, they must still take into account the following checklist before entrusting a contractor with carrying out the work:

  1. Make sure the home service team is authorized. Since the licensing process requires experience and ongoing training, homeowners can rest assured that the plumber or HVAC technician has met a list of state or local requirements to operate.

  2. Ask if the business is insured. If the company is licensed, they are usually required to carry insurance for their work as well. This protects the customer in the event their property is damaged during a repair and protects them from most liability claims if the worker is injured on the job.

  3. Look for reviews online or from trusted friends, family or neighbors. Word of mouth has always been a good barometer for choosing a reliable home service company, and many homeowners ask friends or family for recommendations. Homeowners can also check online reviews before contracting a repair. In addition to having a high number of positive reviews, owners should also consider how the business handles and rectifies negative reviews.

  4. Make sure the company can handle the scope of work. If the company is too small, it may not have enough staff to carry out repairs quickly during the busiest seasons or the company may not have the experience to meet specific needs. of an owner. Researching a home service company’s response time and finished projects will give owners a better understanding of the company’s capability and experience.

  5. Ensure that the company provides warranty services. While most licensed professionals should be able to complete a repair or installation correctly the first time, there is always the risk of a faulty part or human error. Ensuring that the company will be available and willing to honor a warranty is important to establishing a long-term business relationship.

  6. Look for a contractor that offers service plans. Since an ounce of prevention is better than cure, homeowners who have their home systems serviced regularly need fewer repairs. A good home service contractor should have plans that allow homeowners to receive regular maintenance, reduced service call rates, and special offers that help build a relationship and routine service record.

“You may think any plumber can fix a sink or any HVAC company can install a boiler, but if they can’t get to your house quickly in an emergency or they don’t specialize in the unique features of your home, so they might not be the best fit for you,” Petri said. earn money fast. Making sure your home service business will be there to meet your ongoing needs, honor warranties, and have the skills to handle your home’s special needs are all things homeowners should consider before hiring. an entrepreneur. »
