Characteristics of a Great Plumber

Published: March 4, 2022

A good plumber is like gold. A great plumber is…well, priceless. You can have issues that come up rarely and are dealt with quickly or you can be stuck with problem after problem that never gets solved in a timely manner.

Here are the characteristics of a truly professional plumber.

They communicate

Good plumbers communicate with you. Whether they are running late to your home, or there is a delay in acquiring a part, you are notified in a reasonable time frame. Even though some plumbers are better at communication than others, you should feel comfortable that there is nothing that is being ignored.

They listen

Plumbers are professionals so they know the ins and outs of plumbing systems. But you are the one who deals with your home’s plumbing on a daily basis. A good plumber listens to your concerns and experiences before jumping to conclusions. They pick up on your preferences or financial concerns when guiding you to the best solution.

They explain the problem clearly

In addition to communicating with you in a timely manner, a good plumber’s explanations of your problems are clear and understandable. You should leave the conversation with an understanding of what is happening and be comfortable that the proposed solutions are best for you.

We definitely recommend Tiger!
"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
