There’s the leaky tap that while isn’t urgent you’ll want to fix at some point and then there are problems with boilers or water leaks that need seeing to right away.

What questions should you ask a plumber? 

  • How long have you been trading? 

  • What qualifications do you have? 

  • Have you carried out similar jobs before? 

  • Will you supply all the materials? 

  • Reasons the work could be delayed? 

  • Will you tidy up each day?

What qualifications should a plumber have? 

If your plumber is carrying out gas work, then they must be Gas Safe registered. They’ll carry a personal ID card which you can ask to see, so check their licence number and expiry date. Rated People also check this, ensuring that only Gas Safe registered plumbers can access these jobs. Most plumbers carrying out domestic work should have an NVQ level 2 qualification, so look out for it.
