Why You Need a Licensed Master Plumber for Renovations on Multifamily Properties

Any renovation that includes changes to gas pipes and plumbing requires partnering with an experienced company, but a multi-unit dwelling has additional considerations. Your home may share gas lines and meters with other units, as well as the walls where the gas pipe system runs.

The Department of Buildings divides renovations on multifamily buildings in NYC into two categories:

  • Alteration Type I 
  • Alteration Type II

The first alteration is anything that involves structural change to the building, so it is not something that homeowners in a multifamily building will be taking on.

Alteration Type II renovations are those where the layout of gas lines, plumbing, and electrical will change, which is generally any renovation that involves more than replacing appliances. You may be adding onto a kitchen or bath, changing the floorplan of your home, or upgrading to gas heating or appliances.

The NYC Department of Buildings requires a licensed master plumber to complete any work involving gas pipes for this type of renovation. This is because any work on the gas line in a multifamily building will inevitably impact adjacent units. As a licensed master plumber, Empire Plumbing ensures that your renovation does not cause any issues for neighboring units. We are also highly trained to work safely, protecting the health and property of all of the building’s residents.

Our Kitchen and Bathroom Renovation and Gas Pipe Services

Kitchen renovations or bathroom remodels in NYC can require many different changes. We can install pipe in an addition or change the location of pipes to align with the design for your updated space. Our services manage each part of the process. For many property, this looks like:

  • Understand Your Technical Needs - We review any technical documents from your engineer and designer, and discuss your own expectations. We can also provide an initial inspection of your gas system. We can use this information to provide a cost estimate for your project.
  • Work with Your Contractors - Most renovations in NYC require multiple contractors. We can arrange the time and order of our work around that of engineers, electricians, and others working on your home.
  • Secure Necessary Permits -Your property must have a permit on file with the DOB before any work is done. If you need other permits or coordination with utilities, HOAs, or building supers, we can help guide you through that process. 
  • Perform Renovation Work - At the right stage of your renovation, we complete work on the gas lines. We are efficient to help you avoid any delays and keep the process moving forward on time and budget.

The final step with any project that alters gas pipes is testing. We check pipes and connections for any leaks in your home and in any other parts of the building that may have been impacted by a gas system shut off. The testing helps us guarantee the safety of our work.
