With temperatures warming up, home remodeling projects are on the top of the mind for many homeowners. Among these projects, bathroom remodeling is popular. Many homeowners try to attempt a remodeling job like this on their own, however, which can be a mistake. If you try this, you might end up damaging your plumbing, or doing an installation wrong because of inaccurate measurements. What you need is a qualified and experienced Layton, UT plumber for the job!
Our team is here when you need us, but in the meantime we’d love to share some factors that go into professional bathroom remodels that you might not have considered before.
Can Your Home Benefit From Repiping?
If your home was built prior to the 1970s, then there’s a good chance you have pipes that are aging and need replacement. Older plumbing systems have a greater chance of becoming corroded, leading to detrimental leaks and costing you wasted water, and subsequently money, as a result.
Since your bathroom plumbing will already be exposed during your remodel, it makes this the perfect time to invest in repiping services, at least for the bathroom. An additional benefit of repiping is that it enables you to have more freedom in designing a new bathroom exactly to the specifications you desire, since your pipes can work with them rather than being something our plumbers have to work around.
Consider Your Budget
There are a number of small bathroom plumbing features to consider when determining the cost of your remodel. For instance, if you’re planning on moving any fixtures, like your toilet or kitchen sink, or you want to install a larger toilet, per say, then the cost may be higher.
All plumbing fixtures must be fitted and aligned correctly with the space they’re being installed, so prior adjustments and construction might be necessary to accommodate. Setting your budget at the beginning of your bathroom plumbing project is a great idea, and we’re happy to discuss your various options with you.
When you hear a home services professional talk about energy efficiency, you likely think about things such as lighting and electrical appliances. These certainly contribute to your energy usage, but here we are talking about your plumbing appliances. Are you unwittingly wasting water?
Today’s plumbing installation options include things like low-flow showerheads, low-flush toilets, and more plumbing appliances that will help reduce your water consumption, and therefore your water bills, too.
If Your Budget Allows, Go Ahead and Indulge!
If your budget allows and you’ve been thinking about indulging in luxuries such as a whirlpool tub or a multi-bowl “Jack and Jill” style vanity, then the perfect time for installation is during your bathroom remodel. This way you can be sure it will fit in with your current plumbing appliances and won’t have to make adjustments later. We can help you select quality, high efficiency plumbing appliances that will save you money in the long run, to offset the initial installation costs.
