“So we had a situation where the drain trap in our kitchen sink needed to be replaced,” JB said. “So I figured I’d check out how to do it online. It didn’t sound all that complicated, so I started making a list of all the tools I’d need to get – we have no DIY kit whatsoever. That’s when my girlfriend said, “You know, by the time you go and get all of this stuff just to get started, a NYC plumber could already have the job done. Sometimes doing things the easy way makes sense.”
One of the advantages of choosing a NYC plumber to handle your needed home repairs is that it saves you a lot of time. If you’re not familiar with the processes or how everything is supposed to look, it can take a good amount of time to equip yourself with the knowledge you’ll need to do this job one time – and that you may never need to do again! What else could you be using that time for? “It’s not like I get a lot of free time with my schedule,” JB said. “I like the idea of being a handyman, but not as much as I like the idea of having some fun.”
When you work with a NYC plumber, you never have to worry about buying plumbing tools. “Have you priced wrenches, pliers and torches lately?” JB asked. “It turns out that tools really aren’t cheap. If you add in the cost of the tools you have to buy, suddenly you’re not saving all that much money by doing it yourself.”
Finally, your landlord may require that all plumbing repairs in your home be performed by a licensed NYC plumber. This ensures that all work is done according to current building codes, and avoids any potential problems in the future.
