How To Find the Perfect Sewer Line Repair Company
Anyone who’s ever experienced a ruptured or clogged sewer line would probably agree that it’s not an experience they’d ever want to repeat. Most would also agree that hiring the right plumber to fix the problem can differentiate between a fast resolution and an even bigger headache.
Many homeowners already work with a full-service plumber they know and trust, but for those who don’t, finding a qualified and trustworthy sewer repair service can be a daunting task. Fortunately, by knowing where to look and what to look for, homeowners can find the right company in no time!
Is It Necessary To Hire a Pro?
For those homeowners who are used to tackling general plumbing issues on their own, it may be tempting to take a crack at DIY sewer line repair - but this is a mistake. Sewer pipe repair can be a messy and challenging task requiring special industrial equipment. On top of that, untrained individuals are much more likely to injure themselves or cause further damage to the sewer line or the surrounding property.
Professional sewer line repair may involve “trenchless” solutions such as coating the inside of the pipe with a special epoxy, digging strategic access points to destroy portions of the pipe and replace them, cutting out tree roots, or clearing out blockages with a hydro-jetting machine. These all require specialized knowledge, training, and tools.
If a whole sewer line replacement is necessary, the existing pipe will have to be excavated. Even with a bulldozer and a team of workers, this process can take days. It could take much, much longer if the pipe is under the driveway or sidewalk!
Research Local Companies
First, the company should be licensed and insured. Licensing means they’re legally allowed to perform work in Indiana and stay updated on the latest standards and codes. Insurance means that both the homeowners and the workers will be covered in case of injury or property damage resulting from a Jobsite accident.
Next, it’s best to look at ratings and reviews. If most customers have given positive feedback, it’s a good sign that the company is reputable and does good work. A few phrases to look for include “fair pricing,” “honest,” “great service,” “fast arrival,” etc.
Ask the Company Questions Directly
Finally, once the field has been narrowed down to a few candidates, homeowners can contact each one and ask questions. This can be useful for comparing prices (or at least getting very general estimates). Still, more importantly, it will help homeowners get a sense of the company and its customer service.
Homeowners can also ask specific questions about the sewer line leak repair process to understand what to expect and determine how the company will approach the problem. If the company is attentive and only interested in finding the best solution for the specific situation, the final step is to schedule a consultation!
