Why Licensing Matters

Did you know we are licensed by the State of California?

LICENSE# 1108627

For your peace of mind (and ours), Yorkshire Plumbing & Drain Services LLC is a fully licensed & insured, trusted plumbing company. According to the California State License Board (2023), “Using a licensed contractor could help you avoid financial risk and other problems associated with unlicensed operators.”


When inviting a plumber into your home or business, it’s important to make sure they’re properly insured and licensed through the California State License Board. The last thing you need, is to get hit with a lawsuit by a plumber that’s not even licensed or insured. If a plumber comes onto your property and injures themselves while doing repairs, you could be held liable for the costs of their hospital bills. Licensed plumbers must have Liability insurance, leaving you with the peace of mind that you’re off the hook for any costly medical bills the plumber might acquire.
When having your plumbing problems fixed, you want to make sure the job gets done right the first time. Unlicensed plumbers are more likely to make mistakes as they aren’t licensed to conduct work properly and safely. But not only that, they don’t offer warranties and aren’t protected under Liability insurance when something goes wrong, leaving you with a mess on your hands and potentially catastrophic costs. With this being said, you’ll likely have to call a professional to come fix everything in the end anyway.
Would you want an unlicensed plumber in your home or business putting in a gas line? Absolutely not. There’s a reason the state of California recommends always using a licensed plumber for your plumbing repairs. Your home and business are valuable, important places that need to be kept safe. Ensuring work is completed by a licensed and insured professional gives you the peace of mind your loved ones and co-workers are in good hands.
Plumbing is a skilled profession and is best done by a professional for good reasons. If the plumber coming to your property doesn’t know what they’re doing, lots can go wrong. Property damage can become a serious problem when dealing with unlicensed plumbers. From broken pipes to leaking toilets, water damage to flooding kitchens and sewage backing up in bathtubs, many different things can go wrong. To ensure your property stays safe, always choose a licensed plumber.
Licensed plumbers have lots of experience, expert training, testing, and work experience under their belt. They are professionals you can trust to do your plumbing work effectively and efficiently. Emergency plumbing problems like backed up toilets, broken pipes and sewage backing up need to be fixed as soon as possible. Because unlicensed plumbers don’t have a reputation to worry about, you could be left with a gigantic mess you have to clean up, and pay for.
Most plumbing repairs that are fixed correctly can’t be done with the average tools, unless you want them ‘bubble gummed’ back together and leaking again within a few months. They also shouldn’t be repaired with the lowest quality supplies and fixed by someone who isn’t licensed to fix those kinds of issues. That’s why Yorkshire Plumbing & Drain Services uses the best equipment in the industry, and ensures our plumbers are trained properly and always working under California State licensing. Using equipment when you’re not properly trained can lead to injuries such as cuts or broken bones, and sometimes even leading to hospitalization.
