If you own a home, you know that upkeep and maintenance are necessary. So when you’re told that you need a sewer repair, the first thing you probably wonder is how much the repair will cost.
Hiring the right company to do the job right is crucial, but it’s not always as easy as you think.
Unfortunately, there are companies that aren’t trustworthy or honest and will do anything to make a quick buck.
Below are some steps you can take to make sure the right company is hired the first time around.
DO Research Potential Companies
These days, technology is everywhere and everyone is online. Most reputable service companies have some sort of an online presence. Check out websites and social media channels to get a feel for the company.
A great thing to look for is online customer reviews from sites like Google, Facebook or the Better Business Bureau. These are real people who have used the company, sharing their honest feedback. Are they generally positive? Take some time to read what real customers are saying about their experiences working with the company. You can check out some of Reid & Pederson’s reviews on Google here!
DO Ask Questions
Sewer repairs can be costly. So when you have to spend your hard-earned money on a repair, you want to be armed with all of the information possible to help you choose the best company for the job. As you call around and speak to companies, know that a good company will listen to your questions and answer them honestly. Beware of companies that don’t call you back, that give you vague answers or push you into quickly signing a contract with them.
DON’T Rush the Process
We understand. A broken sewer line isn’t something you can leave broken. But taking a little time to do your research and ask the necessary questions could mean the difference between hundreds, even thousands, of dollars and a correct repair job or an incorrect one. Just think of the headaches and stress that choosing the wrong company can cause!
DO Sign a Contract
You’ve done your research and now you’re ready to sign on the dotted line. We can’t stress this enough – please DO sign on the dotted line! Review the contract before signing and clarify any questions you may have before signing. A contract is a binding legal document so making sure you are all on the same page is a must!
