One of the most important aspects of a new construction project is installing the plumbing that links the building to the underground water supply and waste lines. For any new construction, there are several considerations plumbers must consider to make sure the plumbing is supplied to every part of the building where it is needed. Whether you are building a new home or a commercial site, the basics of installing new plumbing systems are similar. We provide services to customers throughout Long Island and Five Boroughs.
Are Your Services Up to Code?
We adhere to all local building codes, and we can guarantee that your plumbing installation will be compliant with all regulations. The codes depend on the type of building under construction. More stringent regulations exist for commercial properties than residential ones. These codes must be strictly adhered to for your property to pass inspection. We will help you understand these regulations to make sure your property is ready for occupancy.
What’s the Process?
Before new construction plumbing installation begins, we must decide where to put the pipes and fixtures in your property. The process begins as we locate the three rooms most likely to need water lines and waste pipes connected to them. These rooms are often the kitchen, bathroom or restroom, and laundry room. Once we know where to install the fixtures, we will then need to draw out where the pipes will be placed between the walls, as well as the course the pipes run (from where they enter the building to their final location). Properly mapping out the plumbing system before work begins allows us to provide you with an accurate, upfront quote.
How Do You Determine Which Materials to Use?
We consider the current installation and future repairs when choosing the best fittings to use. Plumbing pipes and fittings are not universal because there are many sizes, materials, and designs. Using the most effective fittings for a plumbing job depends on what the pipes carry and where they flow. For instance, a shower drain must be larger than a sink drain, even though both have the job of moving waste water out of the building.
How Much is the Service?
It will depend on the type of property you are building and the materials you use. We will always discuss estimated project costs before any work begins. Many factors play into the cost of the service. The materials used and the labor required help us to determine final expenses.
