How to Choose a Plumber: 3 Crucial Factors to Consider

Posted On: April 23, 2019

Let’s be honest — the only time you’re likely to think about plumbing services is when something goes wrong. Even then, many people would rather attempt to fix the problem themselves just to avoid paying for a repair from a service provider. While this hands-on approach makes sense for minor issues, sometimes a clog just won’t budge or a faucet won’t stop leaking. When you’re feeling over your head with a repair is when it’s time to call a plumber. Wondering how to choose a plumber? Review our “hiring a plumber” checklist to find the right service provider for your situation.


One of the most common red flags customers run into when choosing a plumber is a lack of transparency. For example, if the plumber’s website doesn’t provide specific information about the services they offer, the company may be intentionally leaving this information off the site to confuse visitors. For these plumbers, confusion is an advantage that allows them to change pricing arbitrarily.

We strive to provide as much information to our customers as possible before ever visiting their homes. Our friendly consultants are available to answer any questions you might have about our approach to plumbing. What’s more, we will never charge you for something you don’t need. You can expect affordable plumbing solutions from experts who truly care about resolving your problem as quickly as possible.


We all know someone who seems to be late for everything. When it comes to your plumber, punctuality isn’t just an added bonus, it’s an expectation.

At Genz-Ryan, we understand what a privilege it is to earn your business. That’s why we are committed to arriving on time for every project, whether you’re in our neck of the woods or on the other side of town. When we arrive, you can expect courteous service. By the time we’re done, there will be no trace we ever spent time working on your plumbing.

An Empathetic Approach

More than anything, you need a plumber who understands your concerns. When it’s time for an emergency repair, most people aren’t exactly calm and content. They want the problem fixed as soon as possible by experts who understand the gravity of the situation. When a plumber brushes off a problem or doesn’t take the time to listen to all the details, it comes off as crass and rude.

We always go above and beyond to listen to our customers. Our staff will ask any relevant questions in order to get to the heart of the problem as quickly as possible. The end result is a plumbing fix that exceeds expectations.

Get Started

When the signs of plumbing problems become impossible to ignore, it’s time to take action. A small issue can quickly devolve into a larger one, but a plumber with experience and dedication can resolve the issue before it escalates.
