Thinking about remodeling your bathroom?


Has your wife been telling you that your bathroom looks like a picture out of a magazine from the 70’s? Or is the mold so bad around your tub that mushrooms are growing on your bathroom floor? Maybe your wife is right about remodeling your bathroom, and today may be the time to start the planning.It doesn’t matter how big or small your bathroom job is, you should hire a plumber for your bathroom remodel project. If you have never remodeled a bathroom before, then you may not want to try it yourself, even if you’re looking to save some money.
Before starting your bathroom job, you should talk to someone who has tried doing the project on their own and has a story to tell. As you contemplate moving walls and making the design different in your bathroom, you should consult a plumber for your project first for the simple reason that he knows what can go wrong (and where it can go wrong) in your existing plumbing.
There is something about using a qualified plumbing contractor for your remodel. It can make your life so much easier. Plumbers often get a bad rap and are the subject of popular jokes, but if you have ever broken off the water line while trying to install something or make a repair, you know how valuable a plumber can be.
Maybe you have a toilet that rocks like a hippie and have tried balancing it out using the empty toilet roll. Or perhaps you ordered a cabinet for the bathroom and it didn’t fit between the wall and the toilet or the wall and the tub. And, as they say, this is like flushing money down the toilet. For this reason, it’s important that you work with a quality plumber throughout your project.
Before laying out a floor plan for a remodeled bathroom, you might want a plumber to help lay out the toilet, water lines, and drains. Plumbers don’t do the framing, but the key to a successful bathroom remodel is the proper placement and installation of the plumbing.
