Some of us would rather pay money to get things done at home while others among us would love to spend an entire afternoon installing a new toilet all by themselves, with instructions that they found online. It can be very fulfilling to add fixtures to your own home like that but just because you can install a toilet doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re a DIY plumber. Well, not unless you can also dismantle pipes and drains and know what to do to keep them working as well, at least.
Let’s say that you’re building a new bathroom at your house. Your new bathroom with the need to be fitted with a water supply and a drain, both of which already exist in your house, but now you just have to get them up to your new bathroom. This may involve a lot of strategic piping throughout your home so they can reach the new bathroom. This kind of thing is a task for a professional plumber who understands your home’s plumbing layout and how to tap into it.
Professional plumbers cost more than freelance plumber dudes that you find of craigslist but they also have all the better equipment, years and years of experience and most importantly- a license! When you’re hiring a professional plumber, be sure to check for the license; there’s no need to be shy about asking. You’re going to be paying them a fair amount of your hard earned money for their services, so feel entitled to ask for their license and even client testimonials.
Once you’re sure that you’re working with a professional plumber, you can rest assured that your project will go well. You may even call them again for maintenance work once the plumbing is done.
