Benefits of Using a Licensed Plumber

Doing your own plumbing work might seem like a breeze after watching online tutorials or DIY shows. A couple effortlessly installs a new kitchen faucet in the morning, and by evening, they're hosting a gathering in their renovated kitchen. But when you attempt the same task, reality hits. Water splashes everywhere, especially from the joints you thought were properly connected. What follows? A call to a licensed plumber to fix the mess, reinstall the faucet, and, ultimately, you end up spending double the money compared to hiring a plumber initially.

Opting for a licensed professional ensures that your home's plumbing needs are met correctly the first time. The key word here is "licensed." In Ohio, becoming a licensed plumber involves passing a background check, an exam, having a minimum of five years' work experience, a clean criminal record for licensure, and carrying at least $500,000 in liability insurance. Plumbers must have experience not only plumbing fundamentals but also general contracting and have expertise in dealing with hazardous properties like natural gas and underground utilities.

Work performed by unlicensed plumbers lacks guarantees, and if an unlicensed plumber causes an accident or damage to your home, you could be held liable for property damages. Most home insurance policies don't cover damages caused by unlicensed contractors. Working with a licensed plumber comes with the added benefit of many being bonded. Hiring someone inexperienced is too risky, and any perceived savings could end up being spent on correcting errors or home repairs.
