Why Use a Licensed Plumber
Why Is It Important to Use a Licensed Plumber?
For your protection, the State of Wisconsin has created a strict definition of what it means to be a “plumber”. According to this definition, a person may only present themselves as a “plumber” if they have completed an apprenticeship that includes five years of classroom study and on-the-job training and has also passed a State licensing examination.
This licensing process was created to assure consumers that when they hire a “plumber”, they are hiring an experienced and knowledgeable professional. That’s why it’s so important to ask to see the license of the person you are hiring to complete your plumbing project. It’s also why you should insist on hiring only a PPC Union Plumber.
If you have questions regarding your plumber, feel free to contact the PPC.
If you would like to check the credentials of your plumber, you can conduct a search at the State Credentials website.
If you are unhappy with the service, practices or work provided by your plumber, contact the Better Business Bureau.
Finally, if you would like to report a person representing themselves as a plumber, but who cannot or will not present a valid plumbing license, notify the PPC.
