One of the most important home maintenance decisions homeowners undertake is choosing a reliable contractor. Hiring a plumber, for instance, can be difficult because not all are ethical or qualified.

At JNR Plumbing, you’re sure to get top-quality services–expect no less from the top plumber in Stamford, CT. Below is a close look at some of the plumbing company red flags you need to avoid.

Lack of Licensing

Always check to make sure the plumbing company you’re eyeing is licensed and insured. Many unscrupulous contractors will not want to be licensed because they are less likely to get caught without insurance. Remember that even if you do not plan on using your state’s contractor licensing system, your contractor should have liability insurance to cover any damage to property or injury persons while performing the job.


The fee should be reasonable in relation to the work performed. If something appears to be too good to be true, it most likely is. Dishonest contractors will try to squeeze as much cash out of their clients as possible. It’s crucial to get an itemized quote for the whole job, but this is only sometimes the case. Some will only give prices for individual components of the job, which may differ from what you want or need. Ensure that each item listed on a quote is completed in full and reasonably priced.

Lack of References

Check to make sure the company has good references. If the company has a professional website with testimonials, you can double-check their customers’ satisfaction. Emergency plumbing service companies should be able to have a good number of references. Check their BBB rating as well. You do not want to hire a company that has been sued or has negative reviews. When in doubt, don’t hire the service.

Disregard for Safety

If a contractor is not concerned about your or their team’s safety, drop them. walk away. Plumbing repairs and construction should be done carefully and methodically. Work should be done once the area is safe and hazards have been solved.

When in need of quality plumbing services, make sure you hire the right contractor. Take these things into consideration so you won’t end up paying more than you intended, and your problems will be solved. JNR Plumbing is the plumbing company you can count on to consistently perform above expectations. We will provide you with honest and ethical services guaranteed to get the job done right and at a fair price. Contact us today to schedule a service!
