Why Work With an Insured and Certified Plumber?

Professional Plumbers Care

Your home is your single largest investment. This is where your family laughs and cries together, friends gather, and memories are built. Homes must be maintained to keep those precious to you safe and healthy. A common challenge for all homeowners and renters is finding the right people for your household tasks. Whether you are painting, re-carpeting, or seeking a professional to do a big job like plumbing repairs, it pays to know who you can trust to do the job correctly. I don't know about you, but just the thought of having to choose a plumber who will do the job right is stressful. Most of us have heard (or experienced first hand) the horror stories of plumbing jobs gone wrong.

How do you protect yourself and your home from unlicensed, uninsured, uncertified plumbers? First, make sure you choose an Alberta plumbing company who is not only accredited, but proven to be Alberta licensed, certified and insured, like Alpha Plumbing. To work as a plumber in Alberta, you must hold a certificate or license recognized by the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board. When talking to or contacting the plumbing company, don't hesitate to ask for the license and inquire about Red Seal certification.

Why Trust the Professionals?

Even for those DIY (Do It Yourself) people, there are advantages to working with a professional Calgary plumber who has the correct skills, experience and most importantly, the credentials to ensure the safe completion of you project. Plumbing includes water coming in, waste going out, and potentially working with gas (like a water heater or boiler system), all of which pose potential risks to the state and safety of your home. Yes, you might save a few dollars with a handy person or doing it yourself, but what happens when the job is not done correctly and something goes wrong? You are stuck with the additional cost to have the professional come in and right wrongs.

Consider the following outcomes when debating between trusting a professional plumber, or putting your faith in the hands of a non-accredited worker:

  • Your home without water or water interruption due to mistakes.
  • Cost to repair damage done by a non professional plumber.
  • Non-professionals have a lack of experience in various household plumbing systems.
  • The professional has the training/skills/experience to do the job right the first time.
  • Pay the cost of plumbing repair once for a job done right, not twice due to inexperience.
  • Should there be issues after the fact, the plumbing company will have a warranty period (remember to ask about this)
  • Insurance companies often require the use of professional tradespeople to guarantee coverage on repairs or renovations

We place trust in professionals for our most important tasks, such as healthcare, legal advice, finances etc. Your Calgary plumber is a professional certified to repair and maintain your home. The team at Alpha Plumbing is trained and licensed to not only do the job, but know how to do it correctly and efficiently. There are areas of home maintenance where money can be saved by doing the work yourself or hiring a non-professional, but when it comes to plumbing repair, replacement, and maintenance, you always want a professional plumber who is experienced, licensed, certified, and insured. Why? To have a home which is safe and healthy for years to come.
