New York, USA (Aug. 4th 2020) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

If you are looking to find one of the most dedicated trade associations in all of NYC, look no further than the NYC Master Plumbers Council. The NYC MPC is dedicated to the advancement and continuing education of the licensed plumbing industry of New York City. The members of the MPC benefit greatly in a variety of ways. An example of the benefits of membership were recently on display during the current Covid crisis. The NYC MPC has been giving regular and informative updates and guidance of all sorts. This has been accomplished through a steady stream of online resources and information. The topics addressed ranged from workplace safety, to guidance regarding PPP.

One particular accomplishment of note was the MPC’s direct role in the NYC Department of Buildings acknowledging that all sewer line and water service line work is deemed essential. This allowed for all sewer line and water service line work to continue uninterrupted during covid. This was a vital determination during a time when there were bans on certain other types of construction during covid.

The Benefits Of NYC MPC Membership

The Vital Importance of Licensed Master Plumbers

Think about how many water pipes, drain and sewer systems, heating, and gas lines there are across the 5 boroughs. You may wonder how anyone can handle all the plumbing and gas work challenges that will be experienced throughout any given year. Above ground and underground plumbing and gas work can certainly be a headache for anyone who is inexperienced. It is also against code for any unlicensed individual to work on most of these systems.

After homeowners or business owners have gone through all the DIY steps and drain cleaning options, they turn to a licensed professional. Only the professional and licensed NYC Licensed Master Plumbers will have the ability to take on all the challenges that are faced. Licensed contractors have the ability to successfully repair plumbing defects and imperfections. They accomplish this task without causing any damage to the installation that is currently in place. Additionally, it is indicative of that plumbers passion for their chosen trade if they are members in the NYC Master Plumbers Council

NYC Plumbing Repair, Replacement, and Gas Work

If you start to notice signs that you have a plumbing, sewer, water main problem, or gas issue, you should search for a contractor in New York City as quickly as possible. We know there are so many contractors available, and it can be difficult to find the right one for your home. When you are researching licensed plumbing or sewer repair contractors in NYC, one of the key qualities you should look for is their experience and qualifications.

You do not want to hire someone working on your home or commercial plumbing without being insured, licensed, or bonded. A contractor’s documentation is one of the best ways to determine one’s professionalism and ability to repair your problems. In New York City, all repairs that are related to plumbing, gas, and installation changes will require a permit.

In order to obtain this type of special permit, the applicant will need to be a Licensed Master Plumber. Furthermore, their license will have to be in good standing, and with proper insurance in place.
