Most large-scale home renovation projects will involve at least a little plumbing work. Whether you need to move a few pipes so you can knock down a wall or you are adding a new bathroom to the house, plumbing will come into play. House plumbing can be complicated, and it shouldn’t be attempted by someone with no plumbing skills whatsoever. At Maderaworx, we can help you complete your home renovation project no matter how large or how small. We have plenty of plumbing experts that can assist you with whatever you need to have done.
Plumbing renovations should be done by a licensed professional. The professional should be available from the start of the project to help with planning the changes and to help you avoid any problems. An unanticipated plumbing failure can be catastrophic to your home, ruining flooring, walls, and furniture.
Knowing Where the Plumbing Is
It is crucial that you know where the plumbing lines are within your home before you go smashing through walls. Without proper planning, you can bust through a pipe sending gallons of water spurting into your house. That is never a good thing. It will make your current renovation project much more difficult, it will likely lead to renovation projects you weren’t expecting, and it can easily ruin your furniture or your electronics. Plus, it will cost you money on your water bill! A plumbing expert can show you where the lines are, and where it is safe to bust into the walls.
Understand Needs vs Wants
Just like with any renovation project, a plumbing remodel will come with necessary changes and those that can be considered splurges. You may have dreams of an elaborate bathroom with heated tile floors, soaking tub, and large shower with two rain showerheads. Your budget may not allow for all of those items. It is better to get the absolute needs out of the way before adding in the extras. Your shower definitely needs a showerhead, otherwise, it is just a closet, but it doesn’t necessarily need two showerheads. At Maderaworx, our plumbing remodel experts will walk you through all of these choices so that you can get the renovations you desire within your budget.
There are several choices when it comes to fixtures. Some of the differences are simply cosmetic, but others will change how the fixture performs or how energy-efficient it may be. It is important that you understand the differences in the various fixtures so that you can get the aesthetic that you want in your plumbing remodel, but you also get the function that you need. Maderaworx plumbing experts will be able to help you navigate the complicated world of plumbing fixtures whether you are working on a new kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room.
Before you start your plumbing renovation journey, schedule a consultation with a Maderaworx plumbing associate. We can discuss all your goals and help align them with your budget. Don’t put off the bathroom you have been hoping for, Maderaworx can help make it a reality.
