Did you know that in Texas many types of plumbing work must be completed by a licensed master plumber? It's true. These types of licenses not only ensure that work being done is top-notch but also to keep the public safe. With advanced skills, significant working experience, and rigorous testing, master plumbers are experts in the field. We'd use master plumbers for all of Expo Home Improvement bathroom projects even if we weren't required to by Texas law because they're simply the best and most experienced.
There are three levels of licensures for plumbers: apprentice, journeyman, and master plumber. Master plumbers must have attained at least 1,000 hours of schooling,10,000 hours of on-the-job experience, been a journeyman for at least a year, and taken an exam administered by the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners. It's a process that takes a very long time and is very rigorous for a reason. Improper plumbing can lead to costly accidents and create unsafe environments for the public. Everyone benefits from having master plumbers in their community.
Every local government has rules that define how buildings can be constructed and modified called codes. These codes explain details for common changes related to bathroom remodeling such as the correct size of pipes for drains or how to properly run pipes through joists without weakening them. Part of a master plumbing's training is to be familiar with the codes so that all work that they perform is code-compliant. That's why working with a master plumber saves you time and money. The work will be done properly according to the plumbing codes wherever you are in Texas.
