Top Questions for a Plumber Before Starting a Bathroom Addition Project

Are you adding a bathroom to your current home? Are you excited about what this will do for the functionality (and value) of your property?

As you begin to move forward, it’s important to consider the many details associated with the project. It doesn’t matter if you’re completing the job on your own or hiring help along the way, you need to make all the right decisions at the right time.

At some point, typically before starting a bathroom addition project, you need to consult with a plumber. This person can review your plans, answer your questions, and help you decide which steps to take next.

Here are five questions for a plumber before starting your project:

  • What is the best layout, in terms of fixtures, of my new space?
  • Can you provide a basic quote on how much it will cost to complete the plumbing portion of the job?
  • What are some of the things to watch out for during the renovation?
  • Do you have any advice on which fixtures would be best for my new space?
  • When is the best time to take on the plumbing portion of the project?

So, there you have it. These are some (but not all) of the most important questions to ask a plumber before starting a bathroom addition project.

A Plumber can Answer these Questions Before a Bathroom Renovation

Are you planning a bathroom renovation project? Are you concerned about making mistakes in regards to plumbing and other important details?

Here are some of the more important questions a plumber can address before beginning a bathroom renovation project:

  • What is the best layout of the space in terms of the plumbing?
  • Do any of the pipes need to be replaced, such as because they are old or damaged?
  • What type of toilet and faucet is best from an efficiency point of view?
  • Is there anything to avoid during the renovation process?
  • When is the ideal time to complete all the plumbing related updates?

Consult with a Plumber Before Finishing Your Basement

Have you come to the conclusion that now is the time to finish your basement? If so, you realize that this will add quite a bit of livable space (and value) to your home.

As excited as you may be, you don’t want to get too far ahead of yourself. Instead, just the same as any remodeling project, you need to carefully plan every last step. This means consulting with a plumber before making your first move.

Here are some of the many reasons to bring a professional plumber into your home:

  • To better understand your options in regards to the layout. Where will you put the bathroom? How about the sink for your bar? A plumber can tell you what’s possible and what’s not.
  • To avoid a mistake. The last thing you want to do is overlook an important detail, such as the need to move a pipe. If this happens, you may have to redo some of your remodel in the future.
  • To get the job done right. Some people try to do their own plumbing. Others rely on somebody who is not nearly as qualified as a professional. Don’t go down this path, as you don’t want to take a risk when tackling this type of project.

So, there you have it. These are just a few of the many reasons to consult with a plumber before finishing your basement. Can you think of any other reasons to get in touch with a professional?

Your New Kitchen and the Many Plumbing Related Details

Are you in the process of remodeling your kitchen? While this can be one of the most exciting home improvement projects you ever take on, it’s important to remember that there are many details to consider before you make your first move.

For example, you need to focus on any and all plumbing details. Overlooking even one of these could cost you a lot of time and money in the future.

Here are a few (but not all) points to focus on upfront:

·      The location of your dishwasher, sink, and refrigerator.

·      If any lines need replaced before you begin to put your kitchen back together.

·      The location of your oven (if it’s gas).

If you neglect to plan for these details upfront, you can overlook something of importance. For instance, you may forget to upgrade your plumbing lines while the cabinets are removed. As a result, you could find yourself facing a huge challenge in the future.

Do you have questions about plumbing and how it relates to your kitchen renovation project? Are you concerned that you are making a mistake?
