Hiring a Plumber? Tips for Success.

Hiring a plumber can be a challenge for home and business owners. It’s time-consuming, there are hundreds of choices, it can be costly, and finding a really good one like hitting the jackpot. Below are a few pointers.

Tip 1: Longevity Matters
At Allied Reddi-Rooter, we believe that independently owned, local plumbers are always the best option. Avoid “franchise” plumbers that have a central authority to whom they report or from which they receive work orders…the best plumbers don’t need a franchise. They stand on their own name and merits. With nearly 60 years of service in the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton areas, Allied has established a solid reputation of dependability, fairness, and professionalism.

Tip 2: You Have us at “Hello”
When hiring a plumber, first impressions are made or lost on the initial call for an appointment. Our scheduling professional, Traci is aces at cheerfully listening to your problem decription, scheduling an appointment time within our standard 2-hour window. Should an emergency arrive that will affect our standard 2-hour window, we’ll reach out and let you know.

Tip 3: Collaboration is Key
Allied Reddi-Rooter understands that customers have many options when it comes to plumbing. Some customers prefer to have 100% of the work completed by a plumber while others prefer a hands-on/DIY approach and require less assistance. We will gladly install pre-purchased materials (provided the materials fit the required specifications). Likewise, on large jobs, we will work with you to phase the work, if possible, and help fit the project to your budget.

Tip 4: Feedback is Key, Too
In today’s world of social media, customer opinion can rapidly make or break a business. We stand behind our trained plumbers and love to hear your thoughts on our service. We have multiple feedback channels: in person, telephone, website, or on our Facebook page. We’re blessed with many positive reviews and recommendations and look forward to many more.

Tip 5: Value is Important
Budgets are tight and plumbing is often a discretionary item. To make the decision easier, Allied proudly offers discount coupons on a regular basis (visit http://alliedreddirooter.com for details). Discounts apply to labor charges, underground camera inspections, high-pressure water jet drain cleaning, frost-free faucet installations, grease trap pumping, and sewer and drain cleaning.
