Why it’s Important to Use a Licensed Plumber?
By using a qualified, trained and licensed plumber, you ensure that not only will you receive the very highest standards of workmanship, but that all work will be backed up by the industry itself.
Plumbers provide important services that keep your plumbing system functional and protect the safety of your home. They must know how to make necessary repairs and diagnose problems with your plumbing system. This is so they can be addressed before they lead to serious issues. When you hire a licensed plumber, you can trust that they will have the expertise and equipment to resolve any issues with your plumbing system and get the job done right.
Not using a professional for all your plumbing maintenance services means that you could be putting your home and your family at risk.
The advantage of hiring a licensed plumber is that you know you are hiring a well trained and qualified professional. There are too many risks and uncertainties when dealing with an unlicensed plumber.
The following are the biggest reasons to avoid unlicensed plumbers:
- There is no way to tell or prove that an unlicensed plumber has completed the same training and requirements as a licensed plumber.
- Hiring an unlicensed plumber could cause you to end up with legal trouble. It is not illegal to hire an unlicensed plumber and there are legal procedures in place to deal with fraudulent or deceptive businesses. However going through the legal process will cost you time and money. Hiring a licensed plumber will help you avoid this mess.
- An unlicensed plumber can put your health and your property at risk with faulty services. Bad plumbing services can result in property damage as well as injury, illness, or death.
- Unlicensed plumbers are more likely to scam you or engage in unethical behaviour. This is partly because they are not obligated to report to a regulatory board.
Inexperienced or under trained amateurs should not be involved in complicated and dangerous work such as gas appliance installations. Saving any amount of money is simply not worth risking potential damage to your house or your health.
Here are a few visual examples of why you should only use reputable local plumbers:
