The secret to a successful kitchen renovation

There comes a point in the life of any kitchen when the home owner feels like they can’t stand the look and layout of their kitchen anymore. This is especially true of homes 50 and older where the old plumbing pipes are starting to rust, the kitchen cabinets unfortunately hang from one hinge, and the old linoleum floor curls up at the edges. A kitchen renovation is just around the corner!

Aside from old craftsmanship that collapses through fair use and cracks, upgrading your kitchen can really boost the value of your home after half a century. The starting point for a successful kitchen renovation is to consult with a registered Plumbing Industry Registration Board (PIRB) plumber.

Who is the Plumbing Industry Registration Board (PIRB)?

PIRB is a trusted professional body regulating the plumbing industry and is recognized by the South African Qualifications Authority. PIRB monitors the level of competence of the plumbing industry. It also advocates sanitation practices that protect our environment and the health and safety of consumers.

So essentially PIRB protects consumers from opportunistic plumbers trying to make a quick buck on your kitchen remodel without having the necessary expertise.

Using a plumber who is registered with PIRB and can therefore issue you with a PIRB Certificate of Conformity has so many benefits when planning your kitchen remodel:

  • First, unregistered plumbers cannot issue a legal PIRB certificate of conformity. Only plumbers registered with PIRB are allowed to issue a certificate of compliance for the work they have done. This certificate of compliance is worth gold in the hand of any homeowner as it protects the homeowner from nighttime plumbers providing shoddy plumbing services. So if you run into a plumber who says he ‘gets’ a certificate of compliance for you from his friend afterwards, the red warning lights should flash.
  • Issuing a PIRB Certificate of Conformity means that the work performed is randomly audited. These audits are a continuous internal process of PIRB that maintains the integrity of the industry. When a plumber issues a PIRB certificate of conformity, he essentially agrees to be examined. This means that the plumber can be sure that his work is in accordance with industry standards.
  • PIRB registered plumbers are required to earn CPD points on an annual basis to remain registered. This ensures that registered plumbers are continuously retraining themselves to maintain their credibility and registration status. Consumers can therefore rest assured that any PIRB registered plumber has a solid understanding of South African national standards and the latest plumbing practices.
