A plumber is not limited to fixing the dripping faucet that your husband couldn’t fix and, in some cases, made worse. No, his training, licensing and certification goes way beyond that. Plumbers are by trade focused on the health and sanitation of the nation. I am sure you have seen the classic logo for American Standard. “The Plumber Protects the Health of the Nation”
In the state of Texas it is a law that a licensed plumber is required to repair and install all plumbing in commercial and residential buildings.
If you use a Handyman make sure it is someone that knows the limits of their trade versus the licensed trade. Cross contamination and back-flow prevention are so very important and critical to the health and sanitation of America. I highly recommend Tim Shiller 832-236-2006 if you need any handyman work performed. My grandfathers were both very handy but they both knew when to call in the licensed trades when necessary.
The Spring and Houston area have been inundated with plumbing repairs and work due to the Hurricane and Freeze of 2017 and 2018. Be a responsible home owner and citizen and call on the licensed and insured trades of Texas. You can verify a plumbers license simply by going to the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners Website and search by the first and last name. Keep in mind that a journeyman plumber is required to work under a Responsible Master Plumber.
