Kitchens and bathrooms are the most used rooms in a home. Has your family grown and the kitchen feels too small? Or maybe the cabinets could use an update? The bathroom was ok when you moved in 10 years ago, the single bathroom sink was just enough but now you have two kids and things are too tight. We can help!
Doing a major overhaul of your bathroom, kitchen or outdoor living space can be the perfect chance for homeowners to improve plumbing pipes in your house.
A plumbing remodel allows for more flexibility in your remodel updates from plumbing fixtures, sinks, shower, water heater, toilets, and plumbing lines, these updates increase the overall value of your house, and can help you avoid plumbing emergencies in the future.
Considerations When Renovating with Your Plumbing Contractor
Moving Plumbing Fixtures and Appliances
An important consideration to evaluate is if it’s necessary to transfer the plumbing appliances, which could include moving pipes, the toilet, or even the tub. It doesn’t hurt to have a professional consultation from an experienced plumber.
Relocating plumbing fixtures will add to the job completion time for the renovation. Not to mention the remodel work costs. Working with an experience licensed plumber can foresee any issues and provide tips to keeping costs as budget friendly as possible.
Enlarge the Drain Size
Clogged drains are sometimes caused by having a small drainage size. When you first buy a home, the drain size may have been fine and kept up. As a family grows and the more a shower is used, and the more hands that are washed in a sink, the smaller the drain the harder it is to keep up. This is also a good time to take a look at the water heater. Does the water heater keep up with the growing family.
Inspect for Leaks and Corrosion
A kitchen or bathroom remodel is the perfecttime to look and see if your plumbing is in good working condition while those pipes are exposed. You don’twant to have to dig behind those new walls to fix something you overlooked.
Always Work with a Plumbing Contractor for Plumbing Services
Whether you’re redoing the entire bathroom with a new steam shower or just swapping out some fixtures, proper plumbing is crucial. You need to find a general contractor and plumbing remodel team that knows what their doing. They can provide quality work from shower installation to full bathroom remodeling.
Your remodeling team should provide you with skilled knowledge in the areas of new fixtures, new plumbing guidance, as well as bathroom or kitchen remodel project ideas.
