Some people choose a plumbing company based solely on pricing, calling around from plumber to plumber to find the lowest cost for the service they need. Unfortunately, this method of choosing a contractor could actually cost you a lot more than you might think.
A great example of this is drain cleaning, otherwise known as “roto rooting.” We set our prices realistically, and our estimate includes pricing for every part of the process. But customers sometimes question why our costs may seem higher than some other companies. The truth of the matter is that if an estimate seems too good to be true, it probably is.
The Cost of Low Prices
A number of dishonest plumbing contractors out there offer you a low price in order to reel you in. But in the end, you’ll actually pay much more for a service that is not up to par. With any drain cleaning service that uses hydro jetting, a thin hose that sends high-pressure water into the drains, this is all too common.
When you hear of a low price for drain cleaning, you might expect the job to go smoothly when the plumbers show up to your home. But after they use a hydro jetter to clean out the drains, they may tell you that the drains still are not clean enough. The price they’ve quoted, it turns out, was only for one or two passes with the jetter, and they plan on using it more times and charging you per swipe. Some even go so far as to remove the jetter tip before putting it into the drain, resulting in nothing more than a light spray of water into the drains. This means that it will need to pass through several times, and the price may skyrocket.
Choose Quality and Honesty Instead
Instead of focusing on pricing, do your research. Find quality plumbers with a history of positive reviews and many years of experience. Ask around for recommendations, and be sure that you’ve selected the kind of plumber who shows up with all of the right tools and expertise.
When we give you a price, it includes the full cost of the services we perform. It includes our time, the job performed, the materials used, and any guaranteed work. Our goal is your satisfaction, and we always aim to bring you honest work.
