The Importance of Hiring a Licensed Plumbing Company

Hiring an unlicensed plumber to handle your plumbing emergency or fixture installation might seem tempting to save a few bucks, but it is much more likely to end in disaster. In many cases, it can cost you a lot more money in the long run. Unlicensed plumbers pose multiple risks to your home, business, and personal health and safety.

On the other hand, licensed plumbers receive extensive training in sewer, water, gas lines, pipe fixtures, and compliance codes for your zoning area. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Sacramento hires only the best technicians who are experts in their craft.

Why Does Licensed Mean Better?

For a professional plumber to be granted a state license, they must first pass criminal background checks. This ensures that the person entering your home or commercial building is safe for you and your family members or employees. Before you trust the most delicate system in your home or property to anyone, you deserve to know they will work in your space with integrity. We take customer trust very seriously and guarantee that our employees operate professionally and courteously at every job.

You Are Protected With Licensed & Insured Companies

Hiring a licensed plumbing company legally protects you from liabilities with your insurance company, renters, and local code compliance department. Licensed companies are held to accountability standards with their state licensing board, ensuring your project is completed to a quality standard. Their work must uphold these standards or be liable for damages and repairs. Licensed professionals are insured to protect you from liability for injuries on the job, unexpected mishaps, and any damage incurred to your property due to their work. Accidents can happen anywhere, so licensing and insurance are important when hiring a professional to service your home or commercial property.

Why Are Unlicensed Plumbers a Bad Idea?

Unlicensed plumbers offer no guarantee that they are current on building codes, sewer, gas and pipelines, drainage fixtures, or any intricate complexities in your home’s plumbing systems. They may cause more damage to your home or property from improper diagnosis or subpar work, resulting in thousands of dollars in repair bills you will be stuck paying. They cannot carry liability insurance for their plumbing work, so you will have costly consequences if anything goes wrong. Mr. Rooter Plumbing eliminates these concerns as we carry liability insurance and offer satisfaction guarantees to protect our valued customers.

In California, it is illegal for plumbers to work without a license. Hiring an unlicensed plumber can void the warranties on your appliances and insurance policies and leave you on the hook for code compliance with your local zoning commission. If you hire an unlicensed tech and that person is injured on your property during the job, you might also be liable for their injuries. In addition, you can be sued for negligence as the employer. Hiring an unlicensed person can become an expensive nightmare that takes years to unravel.
