If you’re looking to hire a plumber, gasfitter or drainlayer, then there’s a few things you need to know first.
We’ve spoken to Colleen from Hutt Gas & Plumbing and she’s been kind enough to put together a few words of advice for all you homeowners looking at getting gas, plumbing or drain laying work done. (more…)
Like all home renovation projects, there’s 3 levels of renovating: good, better and absolute best. We’ve already discussed getting started with bathroom renovation costs. Today we’re going to talk about a basic budget bathroom renovation.
If you have gas installed in your home, then you will need the services of a registered gasfitter or installer at some stage. For your safety all gasfitters are required to be registered by the Plumbers, Drainlayers & Gas Fitters board. Unlicenced work is both unsafe and illegal.
Gasfitters ensure appliances and connections are safe and won’t be dangerous. They are able to safely install, remove, repair or maintain a range of household gas appliances including heaters, hot water systems, central heating, ovens and hobs.
A gasfitter will not only install and service natural gas appliances and fixtures, but they’ll be able to install anything related to these like gas meters, valves, burners and regulators. They’ll be able to maintain and repair all this equipment. Often plumbers also do gas fitting, but as they require a different skill set, check that they are licenced to do gas fitting.
