Why Pull Plumbing Permits?
Just spent the better part of the morning and afternoon pulling plumbing permits for some of our upcoming jobs in the Tampa and the Brandon areas. Plumbing projects like home re-pipes, drain replacements, sewer line replacements, and water heater installations require plumbing permits. Most of all, the municipalities require them to protect the consumer.
If you contract an unlicensed handyman to complete these types of plumbing jobs for you it can cost you. Code enforcement fines, hours of your time, thousands of dollars to repair shoddy workmanship, and out-of-compliance repair can result. In addition, worker injury and damage claims become the property owners responsibility. Lawsuits are always a possibility if unlicensed contractor accidents occurs on your property.
Rather than taking the chance, the plumber you hire should be licensed, insured, and bonded. They will have the ability to handle all of the permitting and inspections required by your local city, county, or municipality. Furthermore, this will alleviate your responsibility for worker injury. Licensed plumbing companies are required to carry workers compensation insurance. While pulling the proper plumbing permits may cost a couple extra dollars and some time at the permitting office. Consumers will have the peace of mind they deserve when hiring a service provider and investing hard earned money in a home’s plumbing system.
Professional Plumbing Repairs
If you are looking to complete some major plumbing upgrades or repairs make sure to always hire a licensed, insured and bonded plumbing company. They will have experienced plumbers that are trained to comply with all local building codes. For absolutely professional plumbing work, whether it be sewer repair, home re-pipe, 24/7 emergency plumbing services, or just day-to-day plumbing maintenance contact a fully licensed local plumber.
