Common Types of Plumbing Services
Most Omaha plumbers offer the following services.
Plumbers are trained both to fix leaks and identify their root cause to prevent future leaks from happening. It's important to get leaks fixed promptly, because even a trickling faucet can rapidly increase your water bill.
Debris can clog your pipes and lead to poor drainage, damage, and breaking. Some unattended clogs can lead to significant water damage. Professional plumbers are trained to find and identify the cause of clogs, as well as eliminate them without damaging your plumbing.
A plumber can install a sink, toilet, tub, or shower or replace one you already have. Be sure to thoroughly vet any plumber you choose for an expensive project. Look for a licensed contractor with good customer reviews and at least a few years of industry expertise.
Gas Inspection and Installation
Some plumbers are trained to detect and repair gas leaks as well. They can install and repair gas pipes and gas appliances, including stoves, hot water heaters, and ovens. These types of services can be dangerous, so be sure to hire a highly credentialed plumber.
Inspection and Maintenance
Yearly inspections help reduce the risk of expensive and inconvenient plumbing problems. Household plumbing undergoes lots of wear and tear, especially when there are several people living under one roof. A local plumber can complete regular inspections and stop problems before they get out of hand.
Emergency Plumbing Services
Many plumbing contractors also offer emergency services. Plumbing issues can be a nightmare if they occur in the middle of the night. You want to find a contractor who can take care of emergencies at any time.

How to Choose a Plumbing Service in Omaha
You want a plumbing project done right at a fair price. Consider the following factors when hiring a Omaha plumbing company.
Reputation and Reviews
Always look at customer reviews before hiring a plumber to work on your home—you want to be sure you're hiring an expert who can provide quality services. Also ask to see a plumber's license from the Nebraska Department of Labor as well as proof of business insurance before signing a contract. You want to feel confident that anyone working on your house is properly credentialed.
You may prefer to hire a plumber from as a union, meaning they've been vetted thoroughly. If you choose to do so, you may pay more for labor.
Not all plumbers offer or are qualified to perform the same types of plumbing repairs, so ensure you ask your contractor about their previous experience. You can look at a company's website to find out what services it provides and ask your plumber for photos of past jobs as proof of experience and quality.
Try to balance price and quality when choosing a plumber. We recommend prioritizing work quality over price as much as you can. Request quotes from several local plumbers to compare before making a commitment.
