When it Comes to Plumbing, Experience Makes All the Difference

There are a variety of important characteristics to look for when hiring a plumber, but perhaps the most important of all is experience.

Working with an experienced professional provides you with much greater peace of mind during your project, and greater assurance that the job will be done to high standards of quality.

Here are just a few examples of some of the primary benefits that come with working with a plumber that has been in business for some time:

High-quality equipment

Plumbing tools and equipment can be expensive. A plumber that has been in business for a while is more likely to have access to a wider range of tools and equipment that allow them, in turn, to take on a wider range of plumbing jobs. Most homeowners don’t own all of the tools needed to take on plumbing jobs themselves, so working with an experienced professional ensures the proper tools will be used for the job.

Sufficient training

You can trust that a professional plumber will have sufficient training and on-job experience to produce high-quality work. Plumbers who have been in business for a while will have had to go through a certain amount of training to become licensed.


Speaking of licensure, it is extremely important to only work with contractors (including plumbers) who have the proper licenses and certifications. Becoming a fully licensed plumber takes years to accomplish, so a plumber who is licensed has proven a dedication to their work and an ability to meet certain standards of quality with every job they take on. You can get much more peace of mind in working with a licensed plumber than you would with a “handyman” you’d hire off Craigslist.


Experienced plumbers have taken on any kind of plumbing job you can throw at them, and have done so numerous times. Whether your job is simple or complex, you can expect an experienced plumber will be able to get the job done properly and efficiently. When you’ve been in business for a certain amount of time, you get to a point where you’ve just about seen it all as a plumber.


Because plumbers who have been in business for a longer time have much more experience in a wide variety of jobs than plumbers who are relatively new to the industry, they’ll also be able to locate the problems and make the necessary repairs much more efficiently. Inexperienced plumbers will take longer to find what’s wrong with your plumbing equipment, and longer to fix it. The longer a job takes, the more of an inconvenience it is for you as a homeowner and the more you can expect to pay for the service.
