You’ve dreamt of building your dream house for years, and now the time has finally come – the time to make that vision turn into a reality! Having the chance to build your dream home is certainly a monumental and exciting thing to experience firsthand. The thrill of picking this design and that design to match this tile and that cabinet, and so on and so forth – it’s all well and fun. However, don’t forget that you can have a perfectly designed and flawlessly constructed house. Yet without a well-executed plumbing system, you may just end up living with a nightmarish entity overflowing with multiple plumbing catastrophes instead. We cringe at the very thought of it.  

Fortunately for you, your favorite local Five Star Columbus Plumbing experts are here to guide you in choosing the right plumbing partner for your dream home: 

  1. List Your Needs: Lists just make things easier for everyone. Whether grocery shopping, school supply shopping, or writing down a to-do list for the day, a list will keep you on track and organized. The same goes for your dream house. So, start with listing out all your plumbing needs and wants. It’s easy to look for any plumbing company, but unless you know EXACTLY what you need done, you may find yourself suckered into settling for a company that has no experience in handling your specific plumbing projects. By knowing what your needs and wants are, you can effectively communicate with prospective companies and gauge their skill to handle any unforeseen circumstances that may arise with your new build. 
  1. Ask for References: Next, enlist your friends and family for help. Ask them for their recommendations of local plumbing companies they have personally done business with in the past. It never hurts to ask the opinion of someone you know. Additionally, once you have a few recommendations under your belt, be sure to check online reviews and testimonials to gauge their reputation and customer satisfaction level.  
  1. Inquire about Licensing and Insurance: One thing that you definitely want to verify is that the plumbing company you are considering holds all the necessary licenses, permits, and insurance required by local regulations.  
  1. Look at Their Collaboration with Other Trades: Plumbing is just one aspect of the construction process. A good plumbing company should be able to collaborate effectively with other trades, such as electricians and HVAC technicians, to ensure seamless integration of systems. Luckily, we are a proud Five Star Home Services member, which means that when you choose to partner with us, you also gain access to a one-stop-shop experience for any other home services you may require. 
  1. Check Their Service Hours: Think about your post-construction support needs. While you hope for smooth construction, unexpected issues can arise later on. Life happens, and situations occur. So, check if the plumbing company offers emergency services to handle any urgent plumbing needs that may arise during the building process or even after completion.  
  1. Consider the Warranty Coverage: Warranty coverage is another important aspect you don’t want to forget about. A reputable plumbing company should stand behind its craftsmanship and products by offering solid warranty coverage. So, inquiring about the warranty for the products they install will reveal their commitment and confidence in their workmanship and equipment. 
  1. Study Costs and Quotes: Transparency, transparency, transparency! There is nothing anyone hates more than hidden costs and tacked-on fees. We get it! It would be a wise move to obtain quotes from several plumbing companies for comparison reasons. A reputable plumbing company will provide a transparent breakdown of costs and be upfront about it. 
  1. Trust Your Gut: Building a new home is a significant endeavor, so choosing a plumbing company with whom you feel comfortable is invaluable. A good working relationship can contribute to a positive construction and customer experience. The right plumbing company will maintain open and clear communication throughout the project. They should also be willing to explain their processes, address your questions, and provide regular updates on the project’s progress.
