As a local homeowner or landlord, you really should have a plumber in Omaha on speed dial. Yes, right there between your best friend and the pizza guy.

Why? When an emergency arises— and it will!— the last thing you want to waste time on is digging through the phone book for a plumber. Calling a dozen different companies, leaving messages, and sitting on hold is a surefire way to make your bad day worse. So do yourself a favor! Vet your go-to plumber with these three critical questions.

Do you keep service parts in stock?

When you have a flooded basement or toilets that won’t flush, you don’t have time to wait around for your plumbing service to order the parts you need. We know when you gotta go, you gotta go. So Burton keeps over 4,000 parts in stock and ready for one-trip repairs.

Is your plumbing service in Omaha, highly rated, and fully licensed?

In an emergency situation, it’s easy to forget to ask your plumber about their license. If they have good ratings, how important is that official stuff? Turns out, extremely important! Working with a non-licensed plumber in Omaha can void your home insurance warranty and make it harder to sell your home in the future. At Burton, our plumbers are fully licensed and ready to help with little and big emergencies around the clock.

Can you provide pricing in advance?

Other plumbing service companies use emergencies to charge through-the-roof rates. But at Burton, we offer upfront guaranteed pricing, so you know exactly what to expect when it comes to getting your water lines repaired or your sump pump pumping again. In our mind, the only surprise should be how fast and well we’ve fixed your issue—not the price on the bottom of the service ticket.

Make it easier on yourself by having an emergency plumbing plan—and a trusted Omaha plumber— in place before you need it. You’ll thank yourself later—and have peace of mind right now.
