The Risks of Hiring Unlicensed Plumbers

While it may be tempting to hire an unlicensed plumber to save money, this decision can have serious consequences. Here are some of the risks associated with hiring unlicensed plumbers:

Subpar Workmanship

Unlicensed plumbers often lack the training and experience necessary to perform quality work. This can result in shoddy repairs that may not last, leading to more problems and additional expenses in the future. At Roto-Rooter, our licensed plumbers are committed to delivering high-quality workmanship you can rely on.

Potential Safety Hazards

Improperly performed plumbing work can pose significant safety hazards. For example, incorrect installation of a water heater can lead to dangerous gas leaks or explosions. Unlicensed plumbers may not be aware of the safety protocols required for certain tasks, putting your home and family at risk. By choosing Roto-Rooter, you ensure that all work is performed safely and correctly.

Lack of Insurance Coverage

Licensed plumbers carry insurance that protects you in the event of accidental damage or injury. If you hire an unlicensed plumber who does not have insurance, you could be held liable for any damages or injuries that occur during the job. Roto-Rooter’s licensed plumbers are fully insured, giving you peace of mind and protection.

Voided Warranties

Many plumbing fixtures and appliances come with warranties that require installation by a licensed professional. Hiring an unlicensed plumber can void these warranties, leaving you responsible for any repairs or replacements. Roto-Rooter’s licensed plumbers ensure that your warranties remain valid, protecting your investment.

How to Verify a Plumber’s License

Before hiring a plumber, it’s important to verify their license to ensure they meet the necessary qualifications. Here are some steps you can take to verify a plumber’s license:

  1. Ask for License Information: A reputable plumber will have no problem providing their license number. At Roto-Rooter, our plumbers carry their license information and are happy to share it with you.
  2. Check with Local Authorities: Contact your local licensing board or regulatory agency to verify the plumber’s license. They can confirm whether the license is valid and if there have been any complaints or disciplinary actions.
  3. Look for Online Reviews: Research the plumber or plumbing company online. Websites like Yelp, Google Reviews, and the Better Business Bureau can provide valuable insights into the experiences of other customers.
