No Job, Big or Small for Unlicensed Plumbers
There is a licensing process in place for all plumbers which make sure that consumer are protected. When you hire a plumber, you want to know that you are getting someone who is not only knowledgeable, but who is experienced as well. It is vital that you require proof of licensure when you hire a plumber and there are many reasons why.
Many plumbers have stories of having to repair water damage that has been caused either by the homeowner themselves, or by an unlicensed plumber. The monetary damage is staggering, not just in that initial cost, but also in repairs to plumbing, wood and other parts of the house that were damaged by the water. Even something as simple as a clogged drain may cause major issues. This is one area where a professional plumber is a must and yet some imagine that they can use a professional draining machine and save some money.
The problem with this is that often, clogs just aren't where you think they may be. Inappropriately running a drain cleaning machine can often be a waste of money but it's almost always a way that you will end up causing more harm without even removing the blockage in the first place. Badly installed systems usually break, they can fail and this will cause all sorts of inconveniences, but also, a tremendous amount of water damage and clogged pipes.
Further, plumbing systems that aren't properly installed are worse than just potential costs in repairing water damage. They can cause health problems as well. If your system doesn't have the appropriate traps or the vents aren't installed correctly: those vents can and often will allow for sewer gasses to leak into the home itself.
This is actually a very serious safety issue because also, polluted water can cause life threatening illness, and a great deal of destruction and potential injury, even death can arise from an explosion caused by an improperly made gas connection.
This isn't really limited to homeowners. All too often, you will find a building manager or a landlord who thinks that he or she may cut a little expense by hiring an unlicensed plumber. The problem is, that lowest quoted price usually doesn't end up costing the least in the end. Unlicensed plumbing is often shoddy and will come at a very high price. Imagine one clog which could have been a simple fix for a licensed plumber becomes ruined ceilings and flooring. This is the end result of many well-intended attempts to save by going unlicensed.
Of course an unlicensed plumber can charge you less. They aren't insured appropriately, and they don't tend to file all the needed paperwork to do the work that they do. However, when something goes wrong, they're also not usually easy to hold accountable. This leaves you to pay the bills for repairing the damage that they do. Whether your problem is big or small, don't risk it. Always be sure that the plumber you hire is fully licensed.
