Plumbing contractors are an important part of new commercial building construction, residential construction, commercial and residential plumbing systems repairs, and even in retrofitting or upgrading the plumbing systems of existing buildings in and around Atlanta.
While residential and commercial property plumbing requirements are different and often require specialized plumbing contractors for each type of construction or repair service, hiring these professionals is more similar than different. There are three very common mistakes that are made when hiring plumbing companies, both residential and commercial.

Learning how to avoid these common mistakes is critical to finding quality professionals to complete your plumbing work. These professionals not only work to the highest standards, but they also strive to keep the project on schedule and within the budget.
Hiring Based on Price/Cost

All plumbing contractors should be willing to provide a written estimate, quote, or bid on a given project. This written estimate or bid should include a line by line breakdown and not just an overall total. This makes it easy to compare what different contractors are offering, and where differences are in the services, materials, and pricing involved.

The lowest priced contractors are rarely the best deal, particularly if they are significantly lower than other quotes. There are only two ways to offer dramatically lower quotes on this type of work. Those ways include choosing cheap materials or cutting back on labor, neither of which is good for the final project results.
Not Shopping Around
If you have plumbing contractors recommended by someone you trust, they are likely to be a professional provider. However, it is still a good idea to get a few other estimates or bids. This allows for a more complete comparison of the prices offered by other top plumbing contractors in the Atlanta area.
