Older Homes May Need RepipingWas your home built before 1970? If so, there’s a good chance that your pipes have aged to the point that they need to be replaced. Aging plumbing systems have a greater chance of becoming corroded, which will lead to wasteful and damaging leaks, leaving you spending money you would of course much rather save. When it comes to a bathroom remodel, your plumbing is already exposed, and that makes it the perfect time to invest in repiping services, at least for the bathroom being remodeled (whole-house repiping may benefit you even more, so be sure to ask us about this service!) An added benefit of repiping is that it allows you more freedom in designing a new bathroom exactly to the specifications you want, since your pipes can work with the changes rather than being something your plumber has to work around.
Set a Realistic BudgetThere are a variety of small bathroom plumbing features to think about when determining the cost of your bathroom remodel. For example, if you plan on moving any fixtures—such as your toilet, or kitchen sink—or you want to install a larger toilet, hypothetically speaking, then the cost might be higher. Each plumbing fixture must be properly fitted and aligned with the space in which they’re installed, so prior adjustments and construction might be necessary to accommodate. Considering your budget at the beginning of your bathroom plumbing project is a good idea, and we’re happy to discuss your options with you.
Consider EfficiencyWhen you hear the phrase energy efficiency, you probably think about factors such as lighting and electrical appliances. These definitely do contribute to energy use, but here, we are talking about your plumbing appliances. How efficiently are you using your water? Today’s modern plumbing installations include water-saving low-flow showerheads, low-flush toilets, and other plumbing appliances that help to reduce water consumption, and therefore reduce your water bills as well. Our team is happy to help you choose quality, high-efficiency plumbing appliances that will save you money and will help make your bathroom more functional and aesthetically pleasing.
