Getting the plumbing done at any time of the day

Most homeowners have a little book in a kitchen drawer that contains the phone numbers of just about anyone they need to know. This little book will certainly have the number for the doctor, the police, fire and probably even the vet; but does it have the number of a plumber in Binghamton NY that offers round the clock service?

A reliable plumber is far more than just a person that you need when the toilet overflows in the middle of the night. A plumber is also the person that you will call upon when you are making bathroom renovations or perhaps installing a new garbage disposal in the kitchen sink. How do you go about getting the name and number of a plumber in Binghamton NY in your little book?

First off, you need names:

There is no shortage of plumbers, by why should you just take a shot in the dark? It is not difficult to pare down the possibilities by asking around, talk to your neighbors or people you work with, ask them for their experiences and ask if their plumber is someone they are happy to recommend. You can also get names from businesses that deal with plumbers on a daily basis, don’t be afraid to ask a building contractor, a local realtor or a local supplier of plumbing supplies. If there is a chapter of the BBB in town they too can provide a wealth of information on local businesses.

What is it you need?

When you are looking for a plumber you need to know why you need him. Are you are about to start renovating the bathroom or kitchen in your home or do you have a plumbing problem that requires immediate attention? A good plumber in Binghamton NY is just as prepared to handle an emergency as he is prepared to handle your renovation project. You will find that plumbers that focus on new construction and major projects usually work to a fixed day schedule and often possess different skills than a homeowner needs.


Most states require plumbers to be certified and licensed before they can offer their services to the public. Once you have your short list of names pulled together check with the local licensing board to ensure they are licensed and that the license is current. This is a good time to check to see if there are claims against the plumber that have not been settled. Make sure the plumber you choose is fully insured, including liability as well as workers comp. If you have any reason to doubt their insurance simply ask to a see a copy of the policies.
