Why should I hire a plumber for home projects?

DIY Plumbing Projects You Are Better Off Leaving To A Professional Plumber


Burlingame PlumberPlumbing can be a challenging task for owners of any building, big or small, residential or commercial. Because of the complexity of many plumbing projects the inexperienced do-it-yourself handy man should consider hiring a trained and certified plumber. True, plumbers can be expensive. But the initial costs will be far less than if you have to hire a professional to correct problems resulting from improper plumbing procedures. Here are a few times when the DIY might think about consulting a professional plumber before taking on the task.New Construction

New construction includes not only a newly built homes, but additions or extensions to existing homes. It’s a no brainier to hire a professional plumber to install the plumbing in a new home. In fact, in many localities it’s required by law that all plumbing installation, in new buildings, is performed by a licensed plumber and inspected by a city official. If the plumbing system fails inspections you will not be allowed to occupy the building.


As your home ages so does the plumbing. Old and outdated plumbing can develop leaks, especially around joints and connections. Sometimes all is needed is to tighten a connection that has a small drip. But there other times when a whole section of plumbing must be replaced. It is important to know that when replacing old sections of pipe there are methods of joining the new to the remaining old. If improperly installed you could have bigger problems that just a leak. Plumbers are experienced technicians that know how to properly repair major plumbing issues.

Water Heaters

Although some people think that they can successfully install a water heater by themselves it’s better to hire a plumber for this task. Any mistakes made by a DIY could have disastrous consequences and cause serious damage and injuries. And if the insurance company finds out that you caused the problem they may not be willing to help you. There is no better reason to hire a certified plumber than for the safety and protection of your family and home.
