Bathroom Remodeling Warnings from a Plumber

The process of having your bathroom remodeled can be very exciting. There are a ton of options and potential possibilities for you to choose from and once the project is finished, you’ll be able to enjoy your new bathroom to the fullest. However, whether you’re tackling the project yourself or hiring a professional, there are ways that this cool new adventure could quickly become a nightmare. Let’s take a look at a few bathroom remodeling warnings from a plumber.

A bathroom in the midst of remodeling

Don’t Ignore the Infrastructure

Though you may be infinitely more excited about the way everything is going to look, you cannot ignore how everything is going to work. That is to say, you can’t just update the aesthetics of your bathroom. Even the most beautiful vanity isn’t going to hide bad pipes, so don’t ignore the functional aspects of your bathroom remodeling project while you address the fun parts.

Make Sure Everything is Watertight

This might seem obvious, but you would be surprised how many professionals miss this one. Your bathtub and surrounding areas should be absolutley watertight to prevent major issues from developing down the line. Even a little crack can lead to moisture seeping into the floors or walls and then you’ve got mold and wood rot, all because you wanted to update your bathtub.

Get Ready for Surprises

If you’ve ever seen a remodeling tv show, then you know how dangerous remodeling can be for one’s budget. In these shows, there’s always a moment of despair when the homeowners realize they’ll have to forgo their new heated floors because the remodeling team found a major issue when they ripped up some tile. Don’t be these people. Plan ahead and then you can enjoy the full array of new features you wanted.

What Our Customers Say

"Great experience. Moved into a new home and experienced major plumbing issues (flooding) the morning after New Years. The plumber arrived that morning within the hour and relieved the issues, also provided some recommendations that benefited us in the long-run."
