Licensed Plumber


What is a Licensed Plumber?

  • A plumber is a craftsman who specializes in installing and maintaining systems used for water, sewage, drainage and piping. In order to become a skilled plumber, years of experience and training are needed. A Licensed Master Plumber is a tradesperson who has reputable mastery of plumbing in one or multiple areas of plumbing.

  • However, being a Licensed Plumber not only incorporates being a master plumber, but also implies that the plumber has all the certificates and licenses needed to perform all aspects of plumbing and heating projects, as well as being registered to work under the City and State laws.

Being a licensed plumber means peace of mind and Village Plumbing offers that peace of mind.

  • To apply to become a Licensed Plumber, it is necessary to have acquired at least seven years total experience within the seven years prior to application in the design and installation of plumbing systems under the direct and continuing supervision of a licensed master plumber. Once these requirements have been accomplished, then it is necessary to pass the Master Plumber exam before becoming a certified Licensed Master Plumber.

  • Besides having been an apprentice, it is imperative to have other skills, such as ability to interpret documents, procedural diagrams, basic mathematics, knowledge of and the ability to use hand and power tools.

Why is having a Licensed Plumber important?

  • Licensed plumbers protect you through code conformance and safety observance. Plumbers in New York operate according to the NY State Plumbing Code. Topics such as proper pipe diameter, the correct location of shutoff valves and use of suitable plumbing materials are all specified in the Plumbing Code, and your plumber is obligated to follow them. It is necessary because any changes to your plumbing system and its components such as drain pipes, gas & water lines and fixture location, can affect the overall efficiency of your system.

  • Our registered plumbers are fully insured and bonded, including disability, worker’s compensation and all liability insurances.

  • If your contractor is properly licensed, and a problem arises, you can file a complaint with the New York City Department of Building.

  • If the hired plumber is illegal and unregistered, nothing can assure you of work being finished properly, if even finished at all. It is not possible to know if they have all the necessary permits, insurance, or skills.
