We had forthcoming enactment back in 2013 in Washington State that would have halted bogus publicizing of plumbing administrations to the purchaser by those that were not authorized however… we never got it passed. It fizzled because that no one except for the con artists had any interest in the bill.
Absence of viable handyman permit implementation in Washington State is changing a talented authorized exchange into a business con game costing shoppers and gifted experts profoundly.
The Issues Affecting Licensed Plumbers and Plumbing Contractors:

2. Counterfeit Plumbing Companies – General Contractors Advertising Plumbing Services
3. The Cost of Advertising – Is inconceivably high because of unjustifiable rivalry from the unlicensed

The pipes exchange is a controlled industry in Washington State. All pipes work should be performed by those with a testament of involvement; as such – a permit. Over the course of the years there can been a deliberate exertion by those not in the pipes exchange to disregard the law that limits who may take part in the exchange. The assault on the handyman and the pipes worker for hire has come from various headings.

In the event that requirement of a law is frail or inadequate – no one will comply with the law.
