While all plumbers can handle projects involving water pipes and fixtures, there are some instances where specialized knowledge is required. Gas line installation and gas line repair are two of these. Gas plumbing is not something that should be considered a DIY project, and even a regular plumber may not be able to repair or install gas lines safely. That’s why you need to work with a specially trained gas line repair plumber.

Pipes and fixtures that carry natural gas are far more dangerous than water pipes and fixtures. Therefore, it’s best to choose experienced professional gas plumbers when natural gas is involved. Most gas plumbers are not journeyman plumbers and certainly not apprentice ones, who legally must work under supervision. A gas line repair plumber takes on extra training so they can handle dangerous natural gas safely.
Any potential natural gas issue calls for a gas plumber’s expertise. You can often tell that there’s a problem with the gas lines thanks to the distinctive “rotten egg” smell added to natural gas. If you ever notice that smell, evacuate the premises right away and call 911 as soon as you are safely outside. (See here for more instructions on what to do in case of a gas leak.)
In addition to repairing dangerous gas leaks, gas plumbers can help proactively when making changes to your home. If you’re installing or repairing any of the following, you should consult a gas plumber:
Gas line repair plumbers can help as you put on an addition that will require gas heating, convert your wood-burning fireplace into a gas one, remodel and/or relocate your laundry room, expand your kitchen, and so much more.
