We have all heard the stories of people getting lumbered with botched jobs and unfinished, unsafe work from unqualified plumbers. I have come across a number of stories of Macclesfield plumbers charging people huge sums of money only to leave them needing a bigger job to be done to fix the mistakes. To save yourself from getting into this predicament it is wise to research and find yourself a reliable Macclesfield plumber .
Working with gas is extremely dangerous and should be taken seriously. Any jobs that have not been done to a safe standard can cause detestation to not only rooms, houses and buildings but to people, families and lives. A poorly fitted gas fire or boiler has the risk of explosion and fire, whereas incorrectly fitted fuse can cause carbon monoxide poisoning which can cause death in matters of minutes. The worse thing about carbon monoxide poisoning is that symptoms and the smell are undetectable making it a silent killer. For these reasons we hope you take your search for a reliable Macclesfield plumber in an educated and serious way.
A good first rule of thumb is to make sure the plumber you choose is gas safe registered. This certification was formerly known as being corgi registered but has now been changed. The gas safe register is a way to list competent plumbers who are qualified to undertake gas work in a safe and experienced manner. To check if a plumber is gas safe registered you should ask for the certification card of the plumber. His card should hold the gas safe registration number which you can check by calling up the gas board and checking the gas safe register for the Macclesfield plumber. Also be aware that anyone presenting their credentials as only corgi is not correct as this has been updated to the gas safe certification. Certain Macclesfield plumbers have been known to show the old corgi badge in order to fool people into thinking they are competent to do the work.
We always hear about people getting overcharged for plumbing work, huge invoice bills for boiler breakdown repairs, insane call out charges for burst pipe leaks. Stories have also been circulating about a Macclesfield plumber fixing boilers with used parts and charging people the full price. This is not only dishonest but extremely dangerous. A first tip is to agree a fixed price in the beginning of doing the plumbing work. This price should be inclusive of all parts and labour. This will ensure that you will not be stuck with a massive bill at the end of the job. An experienced Macclesfield plumber should not have any problems with doing this.
The above tips should help you in finding a good Macclesfield plumber, however please don’t think that it will guarantee it. Other ways to ensure you get a good Macclesfield plumber is ask friend and relatives for recommendations.
