Can a homeowner do his own plumbing in Massachusetts?
Hereof, can a homeowner do their own electrical work in Massachusetts?
The state DOES allow homeowners to do their own electrical work (unlike plumbing), but some towns (who can make their own code modifications) do NOT allow it. So you need to check with your town. The state does in fact not only allow homeowners to do there own work, they also don't need to pull permits.
Just so, can you do your own plumbing in MA?
c. 142, which regulates the practice of plumbing in the Commonwealth, exempts homeowners who perform plumbing work in their own homes from its licensing requirements.
Massachusetts homeowners are allowed to obtain their own building permit for renovations and improvements to their homes. Professionals recommend that only homeowners with significant experience and skill renovating homes and up to date knowledge of building codes pull their own permits.
