Plumber East Grinstead

You need a qualified plumber East Grinstead who is a gas safe engineer to maintain and service the plumbing, heating and gas in your home or property and Our Plumber in East Grinstead is fully qualified.
 Plumbing Q&A: Everything You Need to Know 
Nobody wishes to dwell on it, but there will come a time when you’ll require the services of a plumber. It’s largely unavoidable, much like death and taxes; yet nowhere near as gloomy, obviously. Therefore it’s imperative that you have a rough idea of what constitutes a good plumbing service and moreover, what qualifies a good plumber; in terms of being considered a good plumber that is. And not just certification; although that’s hugely important.
Always Seek Out a Reputable Plumber
More often than not the general public will reach for a local directory, or alternatively type the search term, ‘local plumbers’ into Google, and away they’ll go. And inevitably if the developing situation with their leaky taps, or boiler on the blink, is pressing enough, they’ll get in touch with the first plumbing service they see. Of course, if you key in ‘emergency plumber East Grinstead’ or ‘boiler repair East Grinstead, then there’s a good chance that alphabetically, Ability would appear pretty much near the top of your search. Keep the Number of a Good Plumber to hand but you don’t want to take a chance on that, and instead have our number already on speed dial or pinned to the notice board in your kitchen. Seeking out a dependable plumber poses the same pitfalls as finding any other trades service in your locality, and opt for the wrong firm and it might just end up being the start of your problems, rather than the end. It’s not unheard of for some disreputable plumbers to make matters worse and add further woes by not completing the job properly.
Why do I need to hire a qualified plumber, as a friend told me a general handyman can fix basic plumbing issues?
Because no matter how good you think your DIY skills are (or those of a general handyman), anything plumbing-related should always be tackled by experts in the field like ourselves. What might seem like a simple fix of a leaky tap at the start of an undertaking, might quickly turn into a nightmare; and a nightmare that involves a lot of water cascading over your fixtures and fittings. Plus there’s the insurance issue if things do go pear-shaped. Would a general handyman be totally covered for all plumbing eventualities like we are? You see, at the end of the day Ability aren’t a jack of all trades, but are a master of one.
Who says a certain plumber is a good plumber? Who can vouch for Ability for example?
Everyone’s heard at least a couple of horror stories about tradespeople who have either been a no-show on a job, left half-finished work, created a huge mess or simply couldn’t rectify the problem they were supposed to resolve. So how do you know whether a plumber is a good one or not? Aside from word of mouth and recommendations, always look for plumbers who are first and foremost qualified and registered, and crucially who are listed on trade association websites and/or display the trade association logos on their website or adverts like we are.We’re talking about the likes of the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) for example, who work with the government, councils, trade unions and consumer organisations to ensure their members comply with specific standards. And the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE), which boasts over 12,000 members, and which habitually raises standards across the industry. Plumbers listed with these organisations aren’t likely to compromise their reputation by way of bad practices. Regarding Ability, you can also check out our customer reviews, references and testimonials via our website for more peace of mind.

Why should I choose local plumbers in East Grinstead like Ability, rather than a well-known multi-national outfit?

For a number of reasons, the price being one. Plumbers in East Grinstead, West Sussex, much like local plumbers elsewhere in the UK, will always be more competitively priced compared to the big boys. And we’ll be more willing to entertain all the intricacies of the job too. Whereas larger, multi-national plumbing firms tend to work off a pre-determined rate card; and subsequently are less likely to budge over quotes.

They won’t want to risk tarnishing it, as with an abundance of customer review websites such as ‘Rated People’ and ‘Checkatrade’, it’s never been as easy for unhappy customers to register their discontent online. Plus, it’s good to support local business. Local business often equal family business too, much like the team here at West Sussex plumbers, Ability. While a lot of companies claim that they’re a family-based one which has passed down through the generations, we really are and continue to be. And experience counts and we have almost four decade’s worth in our case!

About pricing, how much does a plumber like Ability charge?

Now that’s the million dollar question. Although we can assure you we don’t charge anywhere near as much as that. Not even for a boiler replacement! Thing is this. Prices are subject to change, however, ours remain highly competitive, plus we get 95% of our jobs completed within an hour and a half. That said, if you do receive a cheaper quote elsewhere, we’ll try our best to match it. Understandably, expect to pay more for emergency call outs than pre-booked plumbing jobs, especially outside of regular hours. But based on hours spent repairing a plumbing issue, then it’s always better to have an expert resolve a problem in 20 minutes than a cowboy who could take a couple of hours and then still not have rectified it!

How easy is it to receive a quote for a plumbing job I’m thinking of having done?

Where once a plumber might have scribbled a price on the back of an envelope when called out to price a job, these days forward-thinking plumbers like Ability offer customers a variety of modern means of quotation; including via email and app. In terms of the nitty gritty of a quote, it should always confirm a customer’s needs, explain how the plumber will meet said needs (itemising the goods and services required to complete the job), highlight the costs and timeline of when they’d be expected to pay for the job, along with setting out relevant T’s & C’s.

Are your plumbing and heating services offered around the clock?

It’s vital to learn whether or not a plumbing service affords potential customers a 24/7 service, as there’s no knowing when a serious problem can crop up, day or night. While more often than not desperate customers can only make contact with an answerphone, here at Ability, we advocate a policy of ‘voice at the end of the phone.’ Which means we’re get-at-able whenever and wherever you need emergency plumbers in East Grinstead, or for that matter, boiler service in East Grinstead. For any plumbing, central heating, gas fire, boiler or hot water emergencies, we are the plumbers and gas engineers for the job. When you contact us with an emergency, we will aim to have one of our professional tradesmen out to you within 1 to 3 hours as part of our same day service.
