What questions to ask when hiring a local plumber?

- Do you offer free estimates? If not, do you charge a minimum service fee to evaluate my project?
- Do you charge by the hour or by the project?

- Can I get a written estimate or contract with a full breakdown of all costs involved?
Does homeowners insurance cover plumbing?
Homeowner's insurance policies should cover sudden water damage due to faulty plumbing or pipes that burst. However, most policies exclude old or leaky pipes, damage that occurred gradually like a slow leak, or regional flooding.
Does a home warranty cover plumbing?
A home warranty covers normal wear and tear on plumbing work. Home warranties typically cover all plumbing systems such as broken sinks, faucets, showerheads, toilets, built-in bathtub motors, sewer pumps, valves, clogged drains, and leaky pipes.
How much to tip a plumber?
Professional plumbers do not expect a tip. However, if they go out of their way to help or spend more time than expected, a tip is appreciated.
What to do when a plumbing pipe bursts?
- Turn off the main water supply to reduce water damage.
- Turn off the electricity in that part of the home for safety.
- Clean up and drain the water to avoid excess water damage.
- Search for qualified plumbers near you and get free estimates.
- Drain the remaining water from the faucets to take pressure off the pipes.
