THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT PLUMBER AT THE RIGHT COT

Dealing with plumbing problems in the home is a fairly common experience.

Toilets in high-rise HDB apartments or condos can become clogged, pipes can leak, sinks can choke, and water heaters can fail.

Your downstairs neighbor may also complain about water leaking from the ceiling, due to water seeping through your bathroom or kitchen floor.

Situations like these require the intervention of a professional plumber, but the horror stories you’ve heard about nightmare contractors and unlicensed workers make you dread asking for the help you need.

Fear not, we’ve put together a handy guide to help you understand how and where to find the right plumber, as well as the costs of common plumbing issues from five of Singapore’s most affordable plumbers.

4 THINGS TO NOTE BEFORE HIRING A PLUMBER

1) Check with your town hall

If you live in an HDB apartment, check with your town hall for a plumber and handyman first.

Some city councils appoint licensed contractors to provide a range of common home repair services, including plumbing work.

These contractors are selected through competitive bidding and are contractually bound to provide their services at the rates they have specified.

This gives you an extra layer of insurance against shoddy workmanship, price gouging, or other predatory practices.

The entrepreneur is also unlikely to behave without scruples, as he risks being struck off or banned by the town hall in the event of a complaint.

Go to the website of your town hall to find the price list and the contact details of the mandated plumber.

2) GET FREE QUOTES FROM INCOME HOME SERVICES

If you are wondering what the fair market rate to pay is, you can contact Income Home Services for assistance.

Create an online form describing the repairs you need and request three or more quotes.

Income Home Services will tap into its database of registered plumbers and provide you with the necessary information, which you can then use to estimate your budget.

Of course, if you find a quote that suits you, you can request the service through Income Home Services.

3) GET JOB DETAILS AND WARRANTY IN BLACK AND WHITE

The negotiations between you and your plumber should be captured in black and white, especially the agreed price (including any surcharges such as freight charges, material charges and inspection fees, etc.), the scope work and warranty period.

Even Whatsapp messages can serve as evidence in case of a dispute, so don’t be afraid to ask for written confirmation.

You have the right to refuse payment until the work is satisfactorily completed.

If the idea of ​​withholding payment makes you sweat, you might want to go through a third party, like Ovvy.

This Singapore-based start-up helps match homeowners and DIY enthusiasts.

The payment is held in escrow and is not released until the owner and service provider are satisfied.

4) PERSONALLY SUPERVISE THE WORK

Sometimes it’s a worker who shows up, not the plumber you negotiated with.

In these situations, poor communication can result in incomplete or unsatisfactory work. Or, an unforeseen situation may arise that requires a decision.

Leaving your teenager or maid at home to supervise work may not be ideal, as they may not be equipped to make the right decision or understand what a job well done should look like.

Therefore, it is best if you supervise the plumbing work in person.
