Do you know how to find the right subcontractor for your plumbing and heating work? Follow these tips to choose the right subcontractor:
Do they know plumbing and heating?
While it may seem obvious, you want to choose a subcontractor that specializes in plumbing and heating for your work. There are a number of subcontractors who may have done plumbing and heating work in the past, but don’t specialize in, or aren’t familiar, with what it takes to do the job right the first time. When you choose our team for your plumbing and heating subcontracting, you will be working with professionals who have worked on a variety of plumbing and heating projects for decades.
What is their reputation?
Knowing the experiences that others have had working with a subcontractor will help you understand more about the quality of work that they do. Access their online reviews, talk to other designers and architects and learn more about what their own experiences were like before choosing your plumbing subcontractor.
Are they licensed and insured?
In order to work on any plumbing and heating fixtures, a subcontractor in New York City MUST work under a Master Plumber Licensed by the City of New York. The bottom line is that no “handyman” or “do-it-all” contractors can legally perform plumbing and heating work without a license. In addition, a subcontractor should provide insurance to protect homeowners.
When you work with a contractor or subcontractor, ask if they are both licensed and insured. If they are not licensed, they are not legally allowed to work on the plumbing and heating in your home. A homeowner could be liable for multiple fines and violations if the work is done illegally while also facing delays on completion. If they are not insured, any damage caused to your home may not be covered and the homeowner is on the hook for the damage.
Besides asking if a plumber is licensed and insured, you should ask for proof of license and insurance as well. On a job, we provide our proof of license and insurance in under an hour directly from the City of New York and our insurance company.
Can they handle the job?
Some plumbing and heating subcontractors say that they can handle any size job, but if they are scrambling to find help, they might push your project into serious delays.
