The Real Costs of Hiring an Unlicensed Plumber

Posted on: August 25, 2015

Although it might be tempting to try and save some cash by hiring an unlicensed plumber, you may want to rethink that idea. Unlicensed plumbers may cost less upfront, but you may end up paying for it later.

What is an unlicensed plumber? If you aren’t familiar with the term, don’t worry, we’re here to help clarify this for you. Having a plumbing license is much like having a driver’s license – the professional has been certified to provide quality plumbing services in your state. Licensed plumbers have spent thousands of hours working in apprenticeships, learning the best practices and methods to working with all different types of plumbing installations and repairs. In order to obtain a plumbing license, individuals are required to pass a criminal background check, pass a licensing test, file a business name with the state, complete any additional prerequisite training required by the state, and show proof of commercial liability insurance. Unlicensed plumbers may perform work that’s unauthorized by city codes, which can result in fines later down the road for you. They may also do a ‘quick fix,’ which seems like it helps upfront, but actually causes a much bigger headache down the line. Not only will this be costly, but it can also be dangerous.

When you hire a licensed plumber, they’re brought in by contract, which legally binds and ensures the work they perform. An unlicensed plumber is uncontracted, so their work is not legally bound. If you pay them upfront, they could take off with the money and not perform the full job, and a court would not be able to help hold them accountable.

Even though it may seem tempting to hire an unlicensed plumber to save money, it’s always best to hire a licensed, professional plumber.
