Common Types of Plumbing Services
Most of The Bronx's plumbing professionals offer the following services.
Have leaks taken care of as soon as you notice them, because even a trickling faucet can drive up your water bill. All plumbers are trained to fix leaks and identify their cause to prevent future leaks.
Debris buildup that's bad enough to block drainage can damage your pipes and cause flooding. If unaddressed, a blockage can even lead to structural damage. A licensed plumber can identify the cause of clogs and remove them without damaging your plumbing system.
A plumber can install a toilet, sink, shower, or tub or replace one you already have. We recommend thoroughly vetting the plumber you choose for a more pricey project. Look for a licensed contractor who has good customer reviews and at least a few years of industry expertise.
Gas Inspection and Installation
A plumber may also be able to repair your stove, hot water heater, or oven. Some plumbers are trained to repair gas leaks and repair or install gas pipes and appliances. This kind of work can be hazardous, so be sure to hire a highly credentialed plumber.
Inspection and Maintenance
Your household plumbing sees a lot of wear and tear, particularly if there are multiple people living in your home. We recommend annual inspections, even if there aren't any obvious problems. Regular inspections can help prevent expensive and inconvenient problems later on.
Emergency Plumbing Services
Many plumbing contractors provide emergency services. Some of the worst plumbing issues are those that occur in the middle of the night, and you want to look for a contractor who can resolve emergencies at any time.

How to Choose a Plumbing Service in The Bronx
When choosing a plumber in The Bronx, you want someone who offers high-quality and affordable services. Below are some factors you should consider.
Reputation and Reviews
Always look at customer reviews before signing a contract with a plumber—you want to make sure you're hiring an experienced professional who provides quality services. Always ask to see a plumber's license from the local The Bronx government and proof of business insurance before starting a project. You want to ensure anyone working on your home is properly credentialed.
You may prefer to hire a professional who belongs to a union. This means a plumber has been thoroughly vetted, but also that you'll likely pay more for labor.
Not all plumbers offer or are qualified to handle the same services, so we recommend checking a company's website to ensure it's right for you. You can also ask contractors to tell you about their previous experience, and even request photos of previously completed work.
We recommend getting a price estimate from at least three plumbers to compare rates. Then, balance cost with qualifications and reputation to make your decision. Prioritize quality work over cost as much as your budget allows.
