I suggest you contact a licensed plumber. The license number should be in any advertising, on the work truck, on business cards, on any estimates. Verify licensure, insurance, bond, worker's comp. Your local building department should be able to tell you how to verify his license. When the building departmetn tells you the company/individuale is licensed, don't belive them. ( I just upset all the inspectors) I see many contractors who are not licensed or insured. Ask for references. A ligitimate contractor will be glad to give references. Then ask for names of those he has worked for that do not like him. Get at least 3 estimates, take the cheapest bid and immediatly put it in the garbage can. Do not hire the cheapest person. If you hire the cheapest person, you get what you deserve.
And yes, I am licensed and am not the cheapest contractor.
