Hire A Professional Plumber
You may want to save money especially right now during the pandemic, trust me I know how you feel. It is not always a good idea to get that family member or friend that knows a little about plumbing to help you. Now I am not saying you need to hire a professional plumber for all your needs, but if there is something that could be a major issue make sure you get professional help. Me I am not a plumber but I work full time for a plumbing company. When my toilet broke in my en-suite I went and bought my own and installed it, for me I knew how to do this, I have done that a few times before. When my hot water tank leaked, I called in a plumber. You need to know when to hire a professional plumber and when you can try to tackle the job yourself.
Unlicensed Plumbers: You Get What You Pay For
Doesn’t Have Insurance
Before bringing in a plumber, always make sure they’re properly insured. Murrayville Plumbing & Heating offers licensed professional plumbers, heating technicians and gas fitter. The last thing you want is to get hit with an unexpected lawsuit. If an unlicensed plumber happens to get injured while performing repairs, you could be held liable for their medical bills. Licensed plumbers are required to have liability insurance, which gives customers an extra sense of security.
It Can Cost You Double
When getting your plumbing fixed, it’s important that the job is done right the first time. Unlicensed plumbers are more prone to making blunders. Even worse, they don’t offer a warranty. This means you’ll ultimately have to call a professional to do the job again, which is more money out of your pocket. Like Mike Holmes says “Make It Right.”
Plumbing is a highly skilled profession. If the person doesn’t know what they’re doing, there’s a greater chance for them to ruin things. Property damage becomes a serious concern when dealing with an unlicensed plumber. From broken pipes to leaky plumbing fixtures, a wide range of different problems can occur. You might think, its just replacing a pipe but there is so much more involved in that. There are SCH10. SCH40 and SCH80 pipes and do you know which goes where and what each are used for? I didn’t before I started working here in Langley.
Disrupt Your Life
Licensed plumbers have a great deal of knowledge and experience. They’ve received hours of expert training. You can trust them to perform repairs quickly and effectively. Emergency plumbing issues, such as toilet backups and burst pipes, must be resolved as soon as possible. There’s absolutely no room for mistakes. Unlicensed plumbers can leave you with a big mess and because they don’t have an online reputation to worry about, they have no incentive to clean it up.
Doesn’t Have the Proper Tools
The average plumbing repair can’t be done with a basic toolset. A number of specialized instruments are often needed, which can be quite expensive. Even if an amateur is able to acquire the necessary equipment, they must know how to use it. Incorrectly using some hand tools can lead to injuries, including bone fractures and severe cuts. Having the right tool and experience for the job is the key to success and no leaks!
