Renovating your bathroom or restroom gives your property added value and brings a fresh change. Many of our residential customers find that changing the way their bathroom looks makes their home look and feel more comfortable. But before you start that remodel, you need to learn more about the various problems that you might face. No matter what problems come up during your remodel, we can help.
What Needs to Be Considered During a Bathroom Remodel?
Even if you opt for a simple and basic remodel, you need to think about the pipes in your property. Depending on the age of your home or commercial property, you may find that your pipe system has deteriorated.
Copper pipes are a great choice for replacement. Many older properties use cast iron. While this material can last for years, it will eventually corrode and break down. This can lead to leaking between floors and even inside the walls. Before you start developing pools of water on your floor, damp spots on your walls, or signs of mold, let us take a look at your pipes during a remodel.
Replacing Drain and Plumbing Lines
As much as you love the look of an old claw foot tub, you might not love that bathtub once you discover that it won’t work with the existing lines in your home. It’s important that the lines work properly because those lines push water out of your home and keep leaks from forming.
We understand that even if you don’t change something out, you might still need help replacing the draining and plumbing lines, which is why we perform a walk through of your property before work begins.
New Sinks and Tubs
Adding a new sink to your bathroom is a simple way to change the look of your room. A pedestal sink can make your bathroom look larger and give the room a vintage look, while a double sink is a must have if you share the bathroom with others. You can even increase the amount of storage in your bathroom with a sink that sits on a cabinet. Adding a new sink, replacing your bathtub, or making other changes all involve moving the pipes or plumbing in your home, which will require professional assistance.
Swapping fixtures is one of the easiest bathroom renovations, and your local home improvement store has dozens of different designs in stock.
