You have your experience.
I will stand my ground on this.
If a licensed contractor pulls a permit and does a job and the inspector signs it off and then there is a problem of any kind relating to the install, then the damages or troubles, if there are ever any, will NOT fall on the shoulders of the customer.
In Hillsboro, Oregon we are required to pull a permit and have an inspection done if a light switch or outlet is replaced or installed in a home.
It is not because the city wants money. It is because house fires kill people.
I am a Steamfitter with a Class 5 Boiler license.
We don't run 600 lbs of steam through schedule 40 pipe.
We don't pipe relief valves directly in to drain lines.
We don't put a plug in a water heater relief valve because it drips.
