Why you Need a Licensed Plumber for Your Kitchen and Bathroom Renovations?

Renovations are a fantastic way to add value to your home instead of moving and spending all that money on stamp duty and commissions. While you may be tempted to save even more dollars by doing the plumbing work yourself, it could be unsafe and unlawful. A faulty DIY job can also cause problems down the track, such as a lack of functionality. Our plumbing experts at Newman and Barker Plumbing explain why you need a licensed plumber for your kitchen and bathroom renovations.

Why is it important to use a licensed plumber?

Hiring a licensed plumber for your kitchen, bathroom and/or laundry renovations ensures the ongoing safety and structural integrity of the building. To meet New South Wales compliance, plumbing work must be conducted by a licensed plumber following Australian standards. Plumbers undergo special training to safely work on various aspects of your plumbing. Licensed plumbers are instrumental in home renovations, where the removal and installation of plumbing elements are integral to the functioning of rooms – specifically kitchens, bathrooms and laundries.

What is The Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA)?

The Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA) is the technical reference for all plumbing work and is an integral part of the National Construction Code (NCC). It applies to all aspects of plumbing work, specifically:

  • Sanitary plumbing
  • Drainage and stormwater drainage systems
  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems
  • Wastewater systems

Licensed plumbers have the right tools

Professional plumbers have all the right equipment to get the job done. Many plumbers constantly upgrade their equipment to keep up with technological advances.

Licensed plumbers can oversee deliveries of kitchen and bathroom fixtures and materials

A qualified plumber can be your liaison with your supplier and pick up any fixtures that are needed for your job. In addition, they will also obtain the required permits from the municipal board so that you don’t break any rules.

Licensed plumbers take care of all safety measures

Renovations performed by an unqualified person could lead to potential accidents and injuries. It might also lead to toilet flooding, clogging or a burst water main. A poorly executed renovation could also result in mould and mildew growth. Licensed plumbers go the extra mile to ensure no one gets hurt on the job and that the kitchen, bathroom or laundry renovation is done perfectly.
