Bathroom Remodeling

Look to Us When Remodeling Your Kitchen or Bathroom Pipes

The kitchen and bath are two rooms where remodeling is not uncommon. Sometimes it involves changing the structure of these rooms by adding or removing walls. Other times, you may want to update your sink, tub, or showerhead. However, before you do anything that will disrupt the existing pipes in either of these rooms, you should call a plumber first.

Call a Professional Plumber When Doing Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling

If your home is older, you may find that there are original galvanized water pipes that are corroding due to rust. Other homeowners have found that their plastic drain lines under the sink are not fitting snuggly into the P-trap because of multiple remodeling projects over the years. If not sealed properly, the slightest jiggling of the drain line can lead to water leaks and flooding.

Issues Related to Kitchen and Bath Remodeling

Kitchen and bath remodeling brings its own set of unique problems that are not always obvious at first glance. Sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets are connected to supply lines that run through the wall behind them. If you’re removing a section of the wall near one of these fixtures, you could potentially break the water connections. If this happens, be prepared for significant repairs or even the replacement of your bathroom or kitchen sink faucet. A professional plumbing service can help ensure your new sink gets properly connected to existing pipes so you don’t have any leaks when you turn on the faucet for the first time after installing it.

Why You Should Call a Plumber Before Doing Kitchen or Bathroom Remodeling

There are many issues that can occur when you’re doing kitchen and bathroom remodeling. Toilet fittings, sink fixtures, and shower/tub valves are all connected to supply lines running through your home’s structure. If these lines are broken or disrupted during remodeling projects, getting them properly reconnected by a professional plumbing service will reduce the risk of leaking water damage. This should be done before any wall covering is installed so you aren’t stuck with drywall mud all over wet subfloors after the first time you take a shower following your renovation project.
