Remodeling your home isn’t just about aesthetics. It’s also about functionality. When it comes to rooms like the kitchen and bathroom, a lot of this functionality involves plumbing. If you’re wondering whether you need to enlist the help of a plumber for your bathroom or kitchen remodel or if you can go it alone, then read on for our views on this.
How is plumbing involved in a remodel?
There is a lot of important pipework feeding into both the bathroom and the kitchen. When undergoing a remodel, it is important that you plan around this pipework so that you don’t damage anything during the remodel and everything still works properly once it’s done. Many kitchen or bathroom remodels may also involve replumbing certain things, like the toilet, shower, sink, or dishwasher, if they are being replaced or moved to another position, or if you are adding a new feature.
Why should you hire a professional plumber?
When it comes to whether or not to call the professionals, doing any work involving plumbing yourself is always a risk unless you have a good level of experience with handling pipework. Relying on a professional plumber ensures that everything works properly once your renovation is finished. This means that your pipework is in good condition and all your kitchen appliances, shower, and toilet are working correctly. A plumber will also be able to help in the planning stage of your remodel, ensuring that the pipework is taken into consideration.
A plumber will ensure that there are no leaks anywhere in your plumbing system, and costly repairs are less likely to be needed further down the line. It would be a big pain if you have to tear out your new remodel because you realize there’s a fault in the plumbing. Minimize this risk by avoiding DIY jobs.
As well as a job well done, you will also save yourself a lot of time and stress compared to trying to do it yourself. This gives you more time to focus on other aspects of the remodel or other rooms of the house. And although you’ll have to pay for the plumber’s work, you will save money on buying new tools that you’ll probably never need again.
