The Importance of Proper Bathroom Installations
When it comes to your home bathroom renovation, it’s easy to focus on all of the design aesthetics and forget about plumbing. Although you may be wanting to DIY most of your remodelling, it’s important to keep in mind that a professional should always handle electrical and plumbing work.
While you may be confident handling small repairs around your house, here’s when you should consider calling a Somerset bathroom installation and supply professional during your bathroom renovation project.
- New Basement Bathrooms: Plumbing below ground is a complex process that is best left to experienced plumbers. For example, adding plumbing to your downstairs can add a lot of convenience and value to your home; however, if handled incorrectly, it can be extremely costly.
- Vanity Installations: Planning a transition from a pedestal sink to a vanity in your powder room or bathroom can have a large impact on the overall feel and look of your space. Most often, this type of project requires adjustments to your plumbing within the wall. This can be tricky and should be left to a professional.
- Bathtub and Shower Installation and Repairs: As with an installation of a vanity, new fixtures such as a bathtub or shower installation could involve new configurations and plumbing adjustments. While removing your old bathtub is difficult, getting it out in one piece is nearly impossible. Furthermore, removing or repairing older units can often reveal water damage and other issues that need to be addressed. Your new model may have special installation requirements that a professional plumber is better equipped to deal with.
