So, you’ve been dreaming of building your dream house for years, and the time has finally come to turn that vision into a reality! Building your dream home is such an exciting and monumental experience. Think about it – you get to pick this design and that design, choose the perfect tiles and cabinets, and have fun with all the little details. But here’s a friendly reminder: don’t forget about the plumbing work! Trust us, even if your house is perfectly designed and flawlessly constructed, without a well-executed plumbing system, you might end up dealing with some nightmarish plumbing catastrophes.  

Lucky for you, your team at Pickerington Plumbing & Drain is here to help guide you as you choose the perfect plumbing partner for your dream home. 

  1. Write Out Your Plumbing Needs: Lists just make things easier for everyone, you know? Whether you’re grocery shopping, getting school supplies, or making a to-do list for the day, having a list keeps you on track and organized. It’s the same deal when it comes to your dream house. So, start by listing all your plumbing needs and wants; it’ll make this process much easier. It’s easy to look for any plumbing company, but unless you know EXACTLY what you need done, you might settle for a company with no experience in handling your specific plumbing projects. By knowing what you want and need ahead of time and listing it out, you can have effective conversations with potential plumbing companies and see if they’re up to the challenge of handling any unexpected situations that might pop up during your new build. 
  1. Ask People You Know for Recommendations: Next, reach out to your friends and family for some recommendations. Ask them if they have any recommendations for local plumbing companies they have personally dealt with in the past. It’s always helpful to hear opinions from people you know. Also, once you have a few recommendations in hand, make sure to check online reviews and testimonials to get a sense of their reputation and how satisfied their customers are. 
  1. Inquire about the Company’s Licensing: One important thing you want to ensure is that the plumbing company you’re looking into has all the necessary licenses, permits, and insurance required by local regulations. It’s better to be safe than sorry, so don’t feel like you’re a bother. 
  1. Look at Their Collaboration with Other Home Services: When it comes to a new build, plumbing is just one piece of the puzzle. A good plumbing company needs to be able to work closely with other trades, like electricians and HVAC technicians, to make sure everything fits together seamlessly. The great news is at Pickerington Plumbing & Drain, we’re part of the Five Star Home Services family. That means when you choose us, you get access to a one-stop shop for all your home service needs. 
  1. Check Their Service Hours Availability: Don’t forget about your post-construction support needs. After all, when all is said and done, you will still need a reliable company you can count on for annual maintenance, even emergency needs. Even though we all hope for a smooth construction process for you, life happens, and situations can arise. That’s why it’s a good idea to check if the plumbing company you are looking at offers emergency services. You want to ensure they can handle any urgent plumbing needs that may arise during the building process or even after everything is completed. 
  1. Consider the Company’s Warranty Coverage: Warranty coverage is another crucial aspect that you definitely don’t want to overlook. A reputable plumbing company should back up its workmanship and products with solid warranty coverage. So, when you ask about the warranty for the products they install, it should give you a sense of their commitment and confidence in their work and equipment. 
  1. Study Costs and Quotes: Transparency, transparency, transparency! Nobody likes hidden costs and extra fees, right? We totally understand! So, it’s a smart move to get quotes from different plumbing companies for comparison reasons. A trustworthy plumbing company will give you a clear breakdown of costs and be upfront about it. 
  1. Trust Your Gut: Last but not least, building a new home is a significant endeavor, so choosing a plumbing company with whom you feel comfortable is invaluable. A good working relationship can contribute to a positive construction and customer experience. The right plumbing company will maintain open and clear communication throughout the project. They should also be willing to explain their processes, address your questions, and provide regular updates on the project’s progress.
