Using a plumber without a license can expose you to a number of risks. Here are a few examples:
Inadequate work: An unlicensed plumber may not have the proper training or experience to properly diagnose and fix a problem. This can lead to poor quality work, and the problem may reoccur or cause additional damage.
Safety hazards: An unlicensed plumber may not be familiar with local building codes and regulations, which can lead to the installation of unsafe plumbing systems and fixtures.
Liability: If an unlicensed plumber causes damage to your property or causes injury to themselves or others, you may be held liable for any resulting damages.
Insurance: An unlicensed plumber may not carry liability insurance, which means that you will have to pay for any damages or injuries caused by the plumber out of your own pocket.
Legal issues: Using an unlicensed plumber can put you at risk of legal action, especially if the plumber causes damage to your property or if there is an accident on your property.
Warranty: The work done by unlicensed plumber may not be covered by any kind of warranty, which means that you will have to pay for any repairs or replacements yourself.
It’s important to note that using an unlicensed plumber can also put you at risk of fines and penalties, as it is illegal in many areas to perform plumbing work without a license. It’s always best to use a licensed, experienced, and insured plumber to ensure that the work is done safely, correctly and to the satisfaction of the client.
