Are you a new homeowner, or a homeowner wondering if it’s time to do a checkup on your plumbing systems? If you’re an average homeowner here in the King County area, it’s likely that your home may need some basic maintenance on your water lines and fixtures to prevent issues from occurring later that will cost you far more than proper maintenance would have. Located at 5608 17TH Ave NW, Trusted Plumbing & Heating is fully equipped and knowledgeable about all plumbing, leaking and sewer issues that you may encounter in your home. We get questions all the time about basic plumber costs and how to stay up to code in your home, so we as professional plumbers wanted to provide answers for some of the most common questions we receive every day.
If you’ve ever had a major water line or leak issue in a residence you’ve lived in over the years, you’ll know that large repairs and fixes can cost thousands of dollars. But how can you make sure your home is up to code, and what are the most common issues that you should be aware of? Seattle.gov has the most current plumbing codes posted for the public to read, which is extremely informative but very technical if you’re not already an expert that is familiar with those services. As the real estate market continues to grow and more people are becoming first time homeowners, there is a growing need for information about maintenance costs and questions about how to keep your home safe, and we are here to help answer some of the most common questions on our site or go into more detail on the phone or in person!
Home inspections of the sewer, furnace, and pipes are also always optional before buying a house, so new homeowners who opt out of inspections to save money or to win a bidding war, and also don’t have prior experience with water lines and fixture repair may have no idea what could be wrong in their home and what to be watchful for. To help homeowners navigate what they need to know about repair & installation costs, Trusted Plumbing & Heating’s owner Jim Cunningham has put together a concise list of some of the most common plumbing questions that homeowners in King County ask and our answers. We also have a list of some important questions that we believe new and long-time homeowners should be asking on our page "Top 5 Plumbing Questions You Should Be Asking!"
Each plumbing company has unique rates and may provide different quotes for jobs or services based on their location and where you are, and the complexity of the job. While some sites may tell you the standard rate is a certain dollar value, we recommend calling a trustworthy plumber and telling them what you have going on to get a real idea of what the charge will be.
We offer free in-person repair estimates and are transparent with pricing, so you can know what to expect before we start and we will not gouge you after the repair job is done. If a job is taking longer than initially estimated or complications discovered during the job require additional cost, we will keep you informed so you are not taken aback by an increased cost unfairly.
Emergency plumbers and emergency repair services can be more expensive than regular jobs, because of the speed and pressure of the work needed to fix a large leak urgently. Emergencies also don't tend to happen at convenient times, as a leak or flooding issue is just as likely to happen over the weekend at 2 am as it is during the weekday evening. However, we make sure to tell you how much a job will cost you before we start so you aren't surprised by the cost once we're done. If a plumber isn't telling you an estimate before they start to fix the emergency, you might be in for a shock.
Having a trustworthy plumber repair service who you know will give you a fair price and take care of your water or leak emergency with care and urgency is priceless, when it comes to keeping your home or business in good shape. We strive to be the most trustworthy plumbing choice available!
Washington state has adopted the 2018 edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code, however Seattle has its own plumbing code created by the SDCI (Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections) at Seattle.gov that differs from the state wide plumbing codes in some ways, mostly with additional restrictions for safety during repairs, and standards for fixtures.
If you'd like to learn more about the nuances of Seattle's plumbing code, our page "Top 5 Plumbing Questions You Should Be Asking!" has a few topics that we recommend homeowners be aware of if they own or are hoping to own a home in King County.
