The Importance of Hiring Professional Plumbers

Technician servicing an hot-water heaterWe’ve met many a homeowner who loves DIY projects. If you are one of them, we admire your ingenuity! However, your plumbing system really isn’t eligible for a do-it-yourself experiment. It needs a professional team to keep it running as it should. Any plumbing issue, no matter how mild you think it is, needs to receive expert service.

The plumbers here at Roadrunner are licensed, highly trained, and appropriately experienced. We’re serious about the quality of our service, and that shows in the work that we do. This is something that you simply cannot get with an amateur or a general handyman. What does a pro bring that an amateur can’t? Read on to learn.

A Professional Diagnosis

Trying to perform plumbing tasks on your own means you’re leaving a lot of room for guesswork. But if you have professional plumbers assess your system, you’re removing that guesswork. Instead, you have pros who can target the underlying problem.

Remember, too, if the plumbing problem you’re trying to solve is a drain clog, do not reach for over-the-counter drain cleaning solution. If you do, you will only be alleviating the symptoms of the problem, rather than the root cause. Which means you’ll be dealing with the drain clog again later, and potentially even corroded pipes because of your continued use of chemical drain cleaners.

Increase the Lifespan of Your Plumbing System

If you’re like most homeowners, chances are that you’d like your plumbing system to last as long as possible. If this is true, then you should make sure you hire a professional to work with your system. From installation and maintenance to repair services, all impact the longevity of your plumbing appliances, pipes, and fixtures.

Hiring an amateur or inexperienced plumber, or trying to perform plumbing jobs on your own, can end up stunting the efficacy of your system. We want you to get the best return on your investment, and one way to do this is by ensuring a long service life.

Accurately Pinpoint Leaks

If you have an issue such as a dripping shower faucet or a running toilet, it’s apparent that you have a problem that needs repair. But there are some leaks that are surprisingly hard to locate in your plumbing system. Hidden leaks might not cause obvious or visual problems right away, but they do cause things like high water bills, and also extensive property damage if they’re allowed to go unchecked.

Trying to find these leaks on your own can delay repairs and therefore cause even more damage to your property from water exposure. Ask about our leak detection services. With the right tools and experience, our pros can accurately pinpoint where your leak is coming from, and take the appropriate steps to fix it. Additionally, we’ll be able to note whether your leak was due to a one-time event or corroded and aging pipes. If the latter, we may recommend repiping so you are less likely to have problems in the future.
