How to Plan For A Plumbing Remodel
October 24, 2019
Do you need all new plumbing in your bathroom because of faulty pipes? Are you remodeling and simply considering replacing your pipes while you’re at it?
A plumbing remodel allows for more flexibility in your bathroom remodel updates, increases your home’s overall value, and can help you avoid plumbing emergencies in the future. Here are some tips for planning your plumbing remodel.
1. Always work with a plumbing contractor.
It’s understandable to want to rectify poor plumbing on your own. However, doing your own plumbing is much different than doing your own painting or even your own tile work.
Special tools are necessary, and special skills are essential. At Best Plumbing, our technicians go through extensive training and certification. Furthermore, we can handle any problem or challenge. The truth is, you never know what you’re going to run into when crack open your flooring and walls to replace your plumbing. Often, the issues are more complex than you initially thought.
Working with a professional plumber will give you peace of mind and confidence, knowing that your plumbing remodel projects will exactly match what you originally envisioned.
2. Be clear about what it is you’d like replaced and updated.
While your plumber should do their best to meet your exact needs, they can’t know exactly what you want if you don’t tell them. That’s why meeting with your plumber with plan-in-hand before getting an estimate is so important. Otherwise, your plumber may end up going too far or not far enough — and you don’t want to be surprised by your bill.
3. To save on costs, keep the original plumbing layout.
As you plan your remodel, remember that you’re always going to save money and time if you stick with your current plumbing layout. For a bathroom remodel, for example, this means keeping the tub where it is, the toilet where it is, and the sink where it is. While our plumbers are happy to adjust this layout if that’s something you want, keeping core plumbing in the same locations is usually less expensive.
