Benefits Of A Licensed Plumbing Contractor

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

Do you understand the benefits of a licensed plumbing contractor? Have you ever stopped to think of all the insurances we carry? We have homeowners insurance, renter’s insurance, car insurance, life insurance, health insurance. You can even purchase insurance on your new sofa against damage. Additionally, we can attach insurance to almost anything we do or purchase.

In many cases, it’s the law. In other cases, we want to protect ourselves and our property. While we go out of our way to protect our home and property, there are still those that want to go cheap by hiring a handyperson or a do-it-yourselfer to fix a major plumbing problem. There is a time and place for employing an unlicensed handyperson. The law clearly spells out what a handyperson can and can not do in your home. 

Contractor’s State License Board (CSLB) Is A Good Resource

A licensed plumbing contractor is as good as buying an insurance policy. If you know where to look, you can check a contractor’s license in one minute or less ( License Check Here). The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) will provide you with the following information on any contractor: 

  • Any complaints or legal action filed against the contractor
  • Construction-related civil judgments
  • Business address
  • Corporate phone number
  • Date Corporation was formed
  • License status
  • License Classifications – C36 – PLUMBING
  • Bond Number
  • Bond Amount
  • Ownership
  • Workers’ Compensation History

Every Contractor Has Gone Through Strenuous Tasks To Get A Contractors License

When you hire a plumbing contractor, you’re hiring someone with the insurance to protect them, you, your family, and your property if something were to go wrong. Furthermore, they have all the background information provided by the CSLB so you can take the next step in receiving the benefits of a licensed plumbing contractor. Every contractor has gone through the strenuous task of getting their license. They have had four years of journeyman-level work experience. They also must apply for testing with the CSLB and have fingerprints submitted for a background check. Qualifying individuals are required to pass a lengthy plumbing exam. The process of becoming a contractor is long and hard, and contractors will do whatever it takes to protect their license.

Three easy reasons Why You Should Hire A Licensed Plumbing Contractor

Professionally Trained And Educated

Licensed plumbers have completed an in-depth and comprehensive certification procedure. As a result, being a licensed plumber is much more difficult than it seems. A written test, as well as an apprenticeship program, are required of licensed plumbers. As a result, when you employ a licensed plumber, you’re getting someone who is knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of plumbing.

The Latest Plumbing Equipment and Technologies  

Licensed plumbers will have the most up-to-date plumbing equipment to handle all types of plumbing issues. This will assist qualified plumbers in completing any plumbing repair as quickly as possible while maintaining the highest possible work quality. For example, powerful hydro-jetting equipment for those hard-to-clear drains. Camera and leak detection equipment to quickly find the source of a water leak and view problems with a sewer line.

Diagnostic Details

A licensed plumbing contractor has the knowledge and latest equipment necessary to diagnose your plumbing problem and determine the source of any issue. A qualified plumber can offer you a full diagnosis, so you’ll know what precisely needs repairing or replacing.

Enjoy The Benefits Of A Licensed Plumbing Contractor

You do everything to protect yourself and your family; why risk hiring an unlicensed handyperson to save a few bucks? Don’t get me wrong, being a handyperson is an honorable trade. Any man or woman can repair toilets, doors, drywall, hang TVs, repair appliances, install ceiling fans, fix fences, and many more repairs. While a handyperson can perform many duties, no job can exceed $500, including materials. Call today and enjoy the benefits of a licensed plumbing contractor. In the long run, hiring a licensed plumber will save you money. It assures that the task gets done correctly, using the most up-to-date plumbing equipment and proper techniques. As a result, you won’t have to worry about future plumbing issues that might cost you in the future.

Every Plumber Has Received A Background Check For Your Safety

At Big B’s Plumbing, all our plumbers have received sex offender and criminal background checks from a third-party company called TheSeal.som. In addition, every plumber we dispatch has a picture ID with a QR code for any homeowner to check their background status.

  1. You made a good point when you said that you could protect yourself and your family when you hire a licensed plumbing contractor. With this in mind, I will be sure to check the license of a plumber that I will be interested in hiring next weekend. What I want is to have a gas line installed, and I want to ensure that the safety of the installation process is going to be prioritized.

  2. It was a great thing to know that plumbers are equipped with the latest tools that enable them to work effectively and efficiently. My sister called me the other day, because she needs help on fixing her house’s hot water system. I know nothing about plumbing, so it’s best if I find her a qualified plumber who can fix a hot water system.

  3. Thank you for mentioning how a licensed plumber has gone through so much training. I am moving to a new area this month. I will find a reputable emergency plumbing service in my new area to help.

  4. I like that you talked about the importance of hiring a licensed contractor who has experience as they didn’t quickly get their licensed but gone through a complex process that you can rely on when trusting them to provide you service.
    We recently bought a house, and we plan to have someone check and maintain the pipes and drains for the convenience of everyone in the house. I’m glad I came across your blog, and I’ll be sure to share this with my family and see what they say about getting a plumbing company for our house.

  5. It’s amazing that you compared hiring a licensed plumber to getting an insurance policy. My mother told me to hire a plumber since the plumbing in my kitchen needs to be fixed. I am unaware of how to fix my pipe or sewer problem, so I need to consult a qualified plumber for help. But thanks so much for the article!

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
