I noticed an ad on CL wanting someone to do preservation work. Part of the qualifications listed was knowing how to install gas and elctric water heaters.


It is my understanding this kind of work does not really pay well. Do any of you licensed gas or electric contractors do this kind of work?

Well, I do know that licensed(where required) GC's do this kind of work.

Whats strange that the company never mentioned? Read your contract since all service companies have almost the same wording: "You are responsible to know and adhere to all codes, ordinances and laws in your jurisdiction".
They love it when the unlicensed contractor does work since they understand that they will charge-you-back since you did not complete the work to code/ordinances for work that you were not licensed to do.
I look at it another way though: Can I change a hot water heater? Heck ya but will I? If there is ever a claim will your insurance policy pay when you are not qualified to complete the work you completed and being a licensed contractor you know that you can't complete the work....
Just not worth the risk... IMO;)

Believe me, I know I am not qualified to legally do this kind of work. I just thought it was odd that they would place an add like that and have every Tom, Dick, and Harry calling contacting them. And you are right, no company name mentioned. They may indeed know exactly what they are doing.
