The Best Plumbers in Atlanta GA Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 


The state of Georgia requires plumbing contractors in Atlanta GA to be licensed by the Georgia Professional Licensing Boards Division which requires a minimum amount of experience as an apprentice or helper, and passing an exam.

But the Georgia state license for plumbers is no guarantee that any particular plumbing company in Atlanta GA is even competent, is doing business ethically, providing real value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all residential or commercial plumbers in Atlanta GA who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified state license, proof of liability and workers comp insurance for your protection, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.


 

Good Plumbers in Atlanta GA Perform Numerous Services
The best plumbers in Atlanta GA are capable of much more than fixing leaky faucets or a clogged toilet. They are required to be adept at all aspects of piping, connections, and waste disposal systems in your home. Basically, the plumbers handle anything that moves, removes, stores, or controls the temperature of gas or liquid.

With such a wide range of required expertise, it's understandable that some plumbers specialize. Some are commercial plumbers in Atlanta GA and others specialize in plumbing for new construction. Fortunately, you can still find good plumbing companies in Atlanta GA by the specific service specialty you need.

Some plumbers in Atlanta have experience doing leak detection and leak repair, and fixture replacements. Plumbers also unclog drains and pipes with Hydroscrub jetting or other high powered jetting systems, which they can then outfit with backflow prevention systems. But if you need resolution to a more complicated plumbing problem, the best plumbers in Atlanta GA can locate and perform video inspection of water lines and attend to underground plumbing issues. 



In addition to the actual labor, some plumbing companies are willing to offer their expert knowledge to other household issues. Specially trained plumbers are equipped to deal with escrow inspections, propane and natural gas leaks, and gas line installation. 

 


Plumbers for Repiping in Atlanta GA

Repiping is the replacement of all existing water piping with brand new pipes. Repiping in Atlanta GA is often done to improve hot water delivery, permanently solve plumbing leak problems, or solve the problem of low water pressure. When repiping in Atlanta, ask the plumbers about choices in pipe materials to repipe with. Many plumbers recommend repiping in copper as a safe, strong material that resists corrosion and carries warranties. There are different grades of copper piping however, so ask the plumbing companies to be specific in their repiping bids.

 

Low Water Pressure Problem
Plumbers in Atlanta GA can help you solve a low water pressure problem. Low water pressure can be due to something simple like sediment that is clogging a showerhead, or the removable aerator on a sink faucet, in which case unscrewing them off and cleaning them may be all that is needed.  But low water pressure can also be due to something more serious like restricted water flow in your main water line due to a kink, deposit build-up or clogs. A faulty water pressure relief valve can also cause low water pressure.   Plumbers can install two water pressure gauges, one on either side of your pressure relief valve (or pressure reduction valve) to determine the water pressure coming into your home from the city water main, or your well, and then compare that to the gauge measurement of the water coming out of your pressure valve to determine if the water pressure relief valve or pressure reduction valve is at fault.

Sometimes low water pressure is simply due to geography.  If your water is supplied by the city, compare your water pressure to that at other homes on your street. It may be that if your home is on a hill, or close to a municipal water tower, that low water pressure is not due to your plumbing but is endemic to the neighborhood.  If your water comes from a well, that may also be the reason for your low water pressure. In both instances, plumbers can install a water pressure booster pump to solve your low water pressure problem.

Questions to Ask Plumbers in Atlanta GA 


When choosing which plumber to hire, ask the following questions about their experience, range of services, credentials, methods and materials:

• How long have the plumbing companies been plumbers in Atlanta GA and how many jobs have they completed there?




• Can they give you customer names and numbers you can call as references? (All plumbing companies bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had customer references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)    

• Do the plumbers have experience with the specific type of plumbing services you're seeking, i.e. drain clog repair versus plumbing leak detection and repair versus low water pressure, etc?

• How long should it take for the plumbers to solve your plumbing problem once they start?




• Will the plumbers be able to complete the plumbing repair work in a single visit?




•  Can they prove that all their workers sent to your property are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All plumbing companies in Atlanta GA bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)    

• Does the plumbing contractor have active workers' compensation and general liability insurance for your protection?  (All plumbing contractors in Atlanta GA bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)


• Do they charge for plumbing estimates?




• What type of warranty do the plumbers provide? What plumbing services does it cover?




• Does the owner do the work or do they send employees to do it?




• Will the plumbers provide a written contract?




• Do the plumbers charge by the job (flat rate) or by the hour (time & materials)?




• Is the technician sent to you by the plumbing company paid a commission, thus increasing his pay with an increase in the cost of your job?


Once you've got answers to these questions, you're ready to review their bid.  Price should rarely be the determining factor since cheap plumbers in Atlanta GA usually aren't the best ones and it can cost you more to repair or replace their faulty work or inadequate repair than if you chose the best plumbing company to begin with.

When you've chosen the best plumbing company in Atlanta GA for your specific needs and priorities, make sure they have a plumbing license from the state of Georgia, which is legally required. (All plumbers in Atlanta GA bearing The Prime Buyer's Report TOP 10 symbol have already had their state license as a plumbing contractor verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
