Serving Santa Cruz County:
Here in the U.S., plumbers are required to have a license and specific certification to work on plumbing at a home or business. The licensing and certification will vary depending on the state the plumber resides or works in, but generally, they must have experience in the field and hold a license to legally work in the plumbing industry.
Types of Plumbing Licenses
A plumbing license is typically issues by a government agency such as the Department of Labor. In most cases, the license a plumber holds will need to be renewed every two years. The license will show what type of work the plumber can do and what experience he has in the field. The types of licenses are:
Does the fact that a plumber must have a license mean that unlicensed people cannot perform the work that someone may need in their home? No, but it means that the state and local government works to prevent unlicensed, and often incompetent people from working on someone’s plumbing and creating a bigger mess than the person already had.
When you hire a plumber, it is very important to make sure they hold the proper license and have the expertise necessary to get the job done right the first time. Improper plumbing can destroy a home and can leave the homeowner responsible for large fines due to work being done incorrectly. If you have a job that requires a building or plumbing permit, you will be required to have the work handled by a licensed professional.
The Code of Plumbing
There is a code in the plumbing field that all plumbers follow. Plumbers work to ensure the health and safety of the public is maintained and that they follow all rules and regulations set forth by code administrators and local and state ordinance.
Hiring a person who is not licensed to work on your plumbing may seem like a great way to save a little money on labor or material cost, but when you hire someone who is not licensed, they may try to skip corners and use the wrong material just to save themselves money. This will be reflected in the work they perform and in the long run, you will find that it was best to hire a pro to begin with to get the service done right the first time. All professional plumbers have a set of rules they adhere to when working on any plumbing job, and when you want to know things are being taken care of correctly, the only route is to hire a professional plumber who holds the proper licensing.
