Experience and Expertise: Choosing the Right Well Drilling Professional

Well drilling isn’t something you purchase every few years. That’s why you’ll want to have a team on your side that handles this request without any hesitations.

There are two main things that separate the good well drilling contractors in Rochester from the great ones–experience and expertise. These are two incredibly nuanced qualities that can go very deep depending on how much you ask your prospective contractor. We want to make sure that customers have the right questions to ask in case they’re trying to get the most for their money.

Down below, we’ll cover how you can tell that you’ve hired a well drilling contractor who has the right amount of experience for your job, as well as the kind of honed-in expertise that will get it done effectively.

Experience: Work in the Field

Experience is hard to measure. How long does a well drilling specialist need to work in the field before you can trust them with a job on your property? While it’s tough to specifically measure, you can usually tell a professional is experienced when you ask them about it.

On our team, for example, we’re happy to give recommendations, opinions, and even walk you through the well drilling process based on the vast amount of experience we have working in this industry. We’ll show you our equipment, talk with you about the water table in your local area, and even go out of our way to simplify it for our customers.

An experienced well drilling contractor will not hesitate to show their background and give you details that an inexperienced professional might not have.

Expertise: Training, Certifications, and More

Expertise is different from experience. A professional could be doing this work for a long time, but if they aren’t licensed, certified, or well-trained then they might not be the best choice. A professional still needs to stay ahead of the curve and do everything legally if they want to be taken seriously in the well drilling and plumbing industry.

Ask your prospective professional about their certifications, licensing, insurance, and even their training. An experienced contractor will be able to show you this and make you feel confident that they can handle the job legally, safely, and with no liability on your end.

Experienced contractors are also innovative. They upgrade their equipment when new technological developments arise, and they consistently train their team members for best practices, safety procedures, and more.

Well drilling can involve moving a lot of earth with heavy equipment. While we recommend it for many customers, it needs to be done right. It’s absolutely vital that a team of professionals exhibit expertise and proficiency with these kinds of tools and processes when you hire them for your well drilling job.
