Why Should I Hire a Master Plumber?

Why Should I Hire a Master Plumber?

Plumbing issues happen at the worst times. They happen when we least expect them. From clogs to leaks, to burst pipes, homeowner mishaps happen all the time.

When your plumbing fails, you need someone to work quickly to provide fixes. You can go ahead and take a swing at it. Maybe hop on YouTube for a quick how-to guide, but in the end, if something remains damaged or escalated to an even further damaged state, you will end up paying for it. But don’t hire just any plumber to get the job done; make sure you do the research and ready up on all the qualifications of your contractor. Make sure that you hire a master plumber who can provide the right services at the right time.

What is a Master Plumber?

To advance to master plumber status, licensed journeymen likely need to complete an additional 4-5 years of independent, hands-on work experience. They must also pass various federal, state and local plumbing exams. Another qualification is being in good physical condition, with proficient manual dexterity and an aptitude for mechanical processes.

After the 4 to 5 years of service in the field, they are awarded a Master Plumber Certification. This means they have more experience and they have demonstrated their expertise in the field. They will be able to get your home up and running in the most effective manner.

Services Offered By a Master Plumber

If you are looking for a master plumber or keeping one in mind, fortunately for you, you’re in the right place. We here at Ken’s Plumbing & Heating are set at Master Plumber status. Our East Meadow plumbers offer the Nassau County area the following services since 1989.

  • Toilet Repair - Don’t ignore your toilet acting up. The problem will still continue even if you jiggle the handle.
  • Faucet Repair - Water sealing pieces and other parts of a faucet wear down over time, which means constant leaking. If leaks are ignored, it can turn to much larger water damage.
  • Water Heaters - Taking that warm shower will be impossible without this home unit. Get it fixed asap.
  • Slab Leaks - A really big deal, these often are happening and people least expect them. If you noticed any foul smells, warm spots in your home’s floor, pools of water in your yard, or a sudden increase in your water bill, you may have a slab leak.
  • Clogged Drains - If your water isn’t draining and it’s pooling up in your sink. It’s a clog and it’s time for a professional to come take a look at it. The baking soda and vinegar trick will only work so often.
  • Repiping - The veins and arteries of your home, at Ken’s Plumbing & Heating, we have been handling complete pipe replacement since 1989.
