Couldn’t a general handyman, whose services you’d pay less for, do just an effective job? We know this seems like a simple solution to your plumbing problems, but your experience simply won’t be the same. Our professional plumbers have been in the industry for a long time, so we’ve seen what can happen when homeowners believe in this common misconception. Plumbing is a tough job, and even something that appears simple—like installing a dishwasher—can require plumbing expertise.
We’re here to tell you how important it is to hire a licensed and insured—and experienced—plumber when you need this type of work in your home. Although hiring a handyman may make it seem like you’re saving some money initially, in the end hiring the wrong team for the work can cost you a lot more.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE LICENSED?
In the state of Texas, you must have a set amount of hours and experience in order to become a licensed plumber.
Given the specific requirements that state licensing holds for plumbers, you don’t want to trust these services to a general “handyman” or amateur, for risk of a job done poorly, or additional damage beyond what was being repaired to begin with.
DON’T FORGET ABOUT INSURANCE
It’s imperative that licensed plumbers also be insured to work in homes in your area. In most cases, licensure requires a minimum general liability insurance for plumbing contractors. This means that if the plumber causes any damage to your property, they will pay for it—versus you being financially responsible because you didn’t have a licensed plumber working on the project.
WHY A GENERAL HANDYMAN IS A BAD IDEA
Choosing a handyman to do a plumber’s work can leave you in a bind. Sure, initially it seems like a good choice—after all, the price is right. However, there’s a reason it costs what it does to hire a licensed, insured, and experienced plumber—you’re paying for reduced mistakes, as well as materials and equipment that only a professional has access too. With a general handyman, you may experience the following issues:
We are a team full of dedication and we understand your needs.
We want to help you beautify your home.
We understand as a homeowner the importance of updating colors and styles.
We understand simply, keeping up on maintenance.
