It may seem strange now, but in the not so distant past plumbers were once regarded as highly as doctors. However, if you consider how important functioning and reliable plumbing is to our day to day routines and to our health then perhaps it is not such a wild idea after all!

By using a qualified, licensed and trained plumber you ensure that not only will you receive the very highest standards of workmanship, but that all work will be backed up by the industry itself. Not using a professional for all your plumbing maintenance services means that you could be putting your home and your family at risk. Inexperienced or under trained amateurs should not be involved in complicated and dangerous work such as gas appliance installations. Saving any amount of money is simply not worth risking potential damage to your house or your health. Here are a few good reasons why you should only use reputable local plumbers and not rely on dodgy DIY-ers or shonky fly-by night operators:

Peace of Mind

Getting the job done the right way means getting the right person for the job in the first place. With a professional plumber, you have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the tradesperson working on your home is skilled and experienced. Top notch plumbers and gas fitters will make sure that all work meets the requirements laid down by the relevant building codes, council laws and government legislation. It is also worth bearing in mind that many insurance companies require that all work is done by a registered plumber. Cutting corners by using an under-qualified operator means that you can never be 100% certain the job was done properly. Only a professional plumber can give you that assurance.

Guaranteed Workmanship

When an enthusiastic amateur sets out to do the job of a professional, it very rarely works out well for the homeowner. Shoddy workmanship can result in expensive repairs down the track and can even pose a significant threat to the structure of your home. Plumbers who know their trade well will always supply you with industry backed guarantees. If you choose a plumbing company that is registered with the Master Plumbers, Gas fitters and Drainlayers Association of New Zealand, you will automatically receive a twelve month guarantee on all work done on your premises.

Quality Results

Employing qualified and accredited plumbers and gasfitters for your plumbing services means that you will get the best result for your money. Most tradespeople depend on their good reputations to keep their business in the black. How can you be sure the plumber you have chosen is above board? All members of the Master Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Association of New Zealand are issued with authorisation cards. Just ask to see their card!
