Why Call Empire Plumbing for NYC Building Violation Removal

At Empire Plumbing, we strive to provide all the services you need to keep your building safe and compliant with the NYC Department of Buildings. Most of all, we want to make this as simple as possible for you so that you can focus on more important parts of property management. This is why we offer:

  • Fast Service - We respond fast and work fast, generally completing violation removal work in less than a day depending on the scope.
  • Superior Convenience - Empire Plumbing handles everything from gas line repairs to paperwork so you don’t have to.
  • Affordable Solutions - A violation already means penalties. We work to keep our prices affordable and get the job done quickly to avoid further penalties.

Our services are also transparent. We know that a violation can leave you stuck, but we make sure we are never taking advantage of your situation and always providing you with an accurate estimate up-front, and an outline of what you should expect in terms of repairs and the process for removing the violation with the Department of Buildings.

Types of Gas Violations We Remove

Gas violations are issued by the Department of Buildings for several reasons. They require you to get a fix for the problem, usually from a licensed master plumber in NYC, in a timely manner. Putting off a fix results in additional penalty fees. Since utilities can be turned off while the violation is in place, people living or working on your property face an added inconvenience in the meantime.

There are two main reasons a property owner may be subject to a gas violation. The first is damage or a malfunction in your system. Damage could be a gas leak, deteriorating pipes, inoperative venting, or a damaged appliance. Any of these might result in gas or carbon monoxide entering the air in harmful amounts, which could be found during an inspection or report.

The other violation is an illegal installation or one that is not to code. This could include:

  • An unsanctioned tap into the gas main.
  • Work performed without a permit.
  • Incorrect installation.

Oftentimes, these happen without your awareness and you are left dealing with the violation. Maybe you bought an older building that had not been brought up to code or a tenant performed unauthorized work. Whatever the reason behind the violation, we will quickly assess the situation and determine the most appropriate fix to get the violation removed.

Our Process for NYC Violation Removal

We start our gas violation removal by understanding your violation. It will outline what needs to be corrected and how significant the issue is, described as a Class 1, Class 2, or Class 3 violation. We research the terms of your violation then inspect your property to determine what work we need to complete. Once our plumbers and you have agreed on the process and price, we:

  • Get DOB Permits - Most gas line work requires DOB permits to be code compliant. We file for any necessary permits before we begin.
  • Complete the Work - We perform all the work outlined in the violation and our own inspection, emphasizing quality and a long lasting result.
  • Submit Paperwork - We submit all required paperwork to the DOB and utility companies stating that work has been completed and requesting the violation be removed.

We continue to monitor your building’s status until we are certain the gas violation is removed and your building can get back to functioning as normal.

Properties and Areas We Serve

We work with all property types in NYC. Many of our current customers for gas line repairs and violation removal are commercial properties and residential properties housing more than three families since these are now subject to additional inspections under Local Law 152. However, we work with any commercial or residential company that has a gas piping system and has received a violation for any reason.

Our service area includes neighborhoods throughout the NYC boroughs of:

  • Manhattan
  • Brooklyn
  • Staten Island

This range means we have experience working with the Department of Buildings, ConEd, and National Grid. We know how to cut through any red tape for these different companies and organizations to get your gas up and running with as little hassle for you as possible.
