Reasons To Hire A Plumber To Remodel Your Bathroom


Bathroom RemodelingHome repairs can be quite expensive and many people attempt to cut costs by finding cheaper alternatives to save them money. When remodeling you bathroom it is important to hire a professional team including a plumber to perform the work. While there are likely cheaper alternatives out there, a plumber will provide you with a higher level of overall service as well as assurance that underlying problems will not lead to extensive future repairs.

While many people tend to concentrate on the aesthetically pleasing aspects of a bathroom remodeling such as the tile work or the installation of vanity mirrors, the underlying plumbing work will often have the most resonating impact on the success of the remodel. Improperly installed plumbing systems can lead to significant future costs and difficulties that can lead to damage to the aesthetically pleasing aspects of a bathroom remodel. Having a qualified professional plumber can help to reduce the possibility of this occurring.

Often damages to bathrooms are caused by water damage from improperly installed or older and damaged plumbing systems. A qualified plumber will avoid this by installing higher quality pipes and other components, and by designing a plumbing system that avoids many of the pitfalls that can otherwise occur.

In one bathroom that received significant water damage, a plumbing clog led to an overflow that flooded and damaged the integrity of the floor and tile work. The homeowner incurred a significant cost to remove mold that built up in the walls and to repair the structural and electrical damage caused by the flood. The cause was an improperly routed plumbing system that had a sharp ninety degree turn that left it susceptible to clogs. When the homeowner and plumber investigated who installed the system, it turned out that the old homeowner was a do-it-yourselfer who decided to undertake the project himself. While the old homeowner had some rudimentary experience with plumbing, the bathroom was not built to code and ultimately led to significant problems down the road.

When considering a bathroom remodel, don’t make the same mistake yourself and hire a professional plumber to take care of the remodeling on your behalf. A higher quality bathroom remodel that will last longer and be structurally sound will be the result.
