For more help, we’ve put together some hints and tips to finding installers the Graham way
Ask family and friends who they’ve used and if they would recommend their plumber. A good reputation is the best form of advertising.
Check out your plumber’s credentials. Members of any recognised institutes will hold qualifications and meet criteria that satisfies the specific organisation’s code of professional standards. Our showroom consultants can help you further with this.
Any tradesman who carries out work on fittings supplied by natural or liquefied petroleum gas must, by law, be registered with the Gas Safe Register. Before using any plumber for gas work, we would suggest you verify that they are currently authorised by visiting www.gassaferegister.co.uk
Reputable and registered plumbers will belong to one or more professional and trade organiations like the ones listed here, so for complete peace of mind, ask them about their qualifications and experience. CIPHE (The Institute of Plumbing & Heating Engineering), APHC (Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors), HVCA (Heating & Ventilation Contractors Association), SNIPEF (Scottish & Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers Federation), OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association for the Petroleum Industry).
Clearly explain what work you need doing, in writing if possible, and get at least 3 quotes. Make sure that all costs are included such as call-out fees, parts and labour for all the plumbers working on the job, and whether the quote includes any ‘making good’ of any consequential damage to other areas of your home.
Ask for a written quote so that there are no nasty surprises when the job is finished. If the work you are having done alters from the original quote while the job is underway, ask your plumber to supply you with a revised, written quote.
If you don’t fully understand what the job entails, ask. A qualified plumber has the knowledge to answer any questions you may have.
Find out how long the job should take. And make alternative showering / washing / accommodation arrangements if the disruption is too much to work around.
Never pay up-front, before a job is completed.
Don’t be disheartened if the plumber you want to use is booked up. A busy plumber is usually a good one and it’s better to wait than to compromise on quality.
Why doesn’t Graham install?
You may be wondering why we give you these hints and advices instead of offering any installation service ourselves?
We believe that as our valued customer this allows you to:
- Obtain accurate installation quotation directly from the installer – without any admin costs being added by the supplier.
- Meet the installer prior to the work being carried out – remember they will be in your home during your installation.
- Ensure the installer views the job prior to commencing installation – to confirm sizes and all details.
