Plumbing (cont., pg. 4)


Things You Need To Do

● Hire an experienced, licensed, insured plumbing contractor with good references ─ whom you actually called.  Hire him days in advance of when you’ll actually need him.

 

● Choose all models, styles, and colors of plumbing fixtures, toilets, tub-showers, or anything else that you want to pick for yourself.

Compile all of these choices into a list and give it to the plumber.  He will use these choices in determining his contract price for a complete plumbing job.

● Consult with plumber to determine type of water lines you’ll use.

● Consult with plumber to determine what plumbing must be done and pass inspection before any concrete is poured.

 

● Call plumber, giving him advance notice of when you’ll need him for rough-in, final, anything he needs to do.

● Follow up to see that plumbing inspections have been requested and passed.


Things You Should Watch For

On another page I write about how you can and should take an active role in seeing that your subcontractors don’t make avoidable mistakes.

Contractors, even the best ones, can and sometimes do make mistakes.

You don’t have to be an expert yourself to spot these mistakes and to get them corrected while it’s still easy to do.

Here are some things you can double-check.

Remember, double-checking is all you’re doing.  You’re not telling him how to do his job, so don’t worry that you’re stepping out of line.

It’s your house.
