If you’re moving ahead with a bathroom renovation, congratulations! But while you debate color schemes and tile and fixtures, make time to consider a plumber for the job. A full or even partial bathroom renovation isn’t just a refresh, and you need to be certain that your new bathroom has functional plumbing that will do its job for many years to come. Here’s why you need a professional plumber for a bathroom renovation.
Experience for the Job
Imagine spending a small fortune on your dream bathroom, only to have shoddy plumbing create an environment ripe for mold and mildew or worse, create leaks in your walls that will require big, expensive repairs. It happens more often than you might think. An experienced plumbing company like River City Plumbing here in Reno has the experience and expertise to make sure your plumbing is done right.
Let our team identify any potential plumbing issues in your bathroom, from the toilet, sinks and shower to everything you can’t readily see. It’s much easier and faster for us to manage plumbing issues when your walls are already open, so bringing our team in early is often a really smart move. Plus, we’re efficient. One of the challenges of a bathroom renovation is often the smaller footprint – lots of people are working in a relatively small space. Getting us on your schedule early means you can check one more thing off your bathroom reno list.
How to Plan
It’s hard to look past the fun details, but spend some time considering a few things. Does your renovation change the existing plumbing footprint? Consulting a professional plumber can help you make a solid plan for the new bathroom’s layout. We’ll also be able to advise on any special requirements, like whether a new water heater is a smart move in light of your spacious new soaking tub! Think about the age of your plumbing, too. Most residential plumbing systems last somewhere between thirty and fifty years, and degradation is inevitable. Have your pipes assessed while the walls are open – it could save a lot of headache down the road.
