Check workers are licensed Auckland homeowners are being warned not to use unlicensed trades- people for plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying work over the summer break. The Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drain- layers Board, which regulates the industry, urges people to ask plumbers, gasfitters and drainlayers for their licence cards to ensure they are authorised to carry out the work. Chief executive Max Pedersen says it is illegal for anyone to do plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying unless they are authorised to do so by the board. From April 1 each year, plumbers, gasfitters and drainlayers must relicense with the board to work legally in New Zealand. We're reminding homeowners not to risk their family's health and safety or their insurance over the holiday season by hiring unauthorised trades- people to undertake work. Unlicensed plumbers, gasfitters and drainlayers potentially place con- sumers in harm's way with their poor skills. New Zealanders have the right to have confidence that any plumbing, gasfitting or drainlaying service pro- vided to them is safe and compliant,'' Mr Pedersen says. Consumers can also check a trades- person is authorised to carry out the work by logging on to the board's web- site at pgdb.co.nz. If a homeowner believes work has been done by someone who is not auth- orised, or has concerns about the com- petency of tradespeople, they can make a complaint to the PGDB,'' Mr Pedersen says. Meanwhile Auckland Council is reminding people with summer DIY projects to get the right consents first. Building control manager Ian McCormick says well before people get their tools out they should check if the DIY work needs either building or resource consent and what legislation requires. Over the summer months, we know many Aucklanders like to do DIY around their homes; it's part of Kiwi culture,'' he says. We're urging people to take steps that will help ensure their work is safe and any effects on others and the environment are addressed. Ensuring any DIY work is com- pliant will also help property owners ensure they don't compromise future property sales.'' Mr McCormick says a lot of work requires consent but even if it doesn't it has to comply with the the Building Act, the building code and other relevant legislation. Property owners with trees will also need to find out if they need resource consent to trim or chop down trees, the council says. Go to aucklandcouncil.govt.nz or phone 301 0101 for information.
