What could go wrong by remodeling your own bathroom?
Do-it-yourself work is all the rage these days. It’s great to feel like you’ve built or repaired something all on your own, while saving money at the same time. Besides, it’s easy to access YouTube videos or Pinterest tutorials to help you with a wide variety of projects, not to mention self-help books, instruction manuals, and all types of help for anything from gardening to building a table to turning recycled bottles into jewelry.
We know there are self-help books and online tutorials available for your plumbing system as well, and they may be helpful for fixing a leaky sink or a running toilet. But if you’re taking on a renovation in your bathroom, you’re going to need a hand.
Why Should I Hire a Plumber for Bathroom Renovations
Though there are many online tools that homeowners can use to design their bathroom by themselves, it’s best to have your design and layout created for you by a designer. Creating a layout on your own could lead to a long road of headaches and regrets. A kitchen designer is knowledgeable of the common mistakes and pitfalls that remodelers fall into. If you go it alone, and a structural or functional issue shows up later, fixing it will be costly and painful.
Hiring a plumber for your bathroom or kitchen remodel means a lot less work for you. You might have to purchase a lot of tools you’ll never use again to do a DIY plumbing renovation. It can take hours, days, or even weeks out of your timeline for remodeling if you’re inexperienced, and you may be without important fixtures in the home for longer.
You may even plan your bathroom remodel around avoiding major plumbing renovations, but you shouldn’t have to. A plumber can help you with everything you need:
· Moving around plumbing pipes.
· Moving drain lines
· Installing a kitchen sink and garbage disposal
· Installing a bathroom sink and plumbing lines
· Adding spa equipment to the bathroom
· Adding a rainfall showerhead
Plumbers Are Licensed Professionals
Here’s the main reason to hire a plumber for that bathroom renovation: they know what they are doing. That includes all the smaller details that homeowners or even a “handyman” wouldn’t think of. Building codes limit what can and should be done to alter your plumbing, for your own health and safety. Local plumbers know the local codes and will ensure everything is up to code and help with filing any permits that may be necessary.
Then, of course, there’s the fact that a plumbing job is completed a lot faster when it’s done by someone who knows what they are doing. And you can feel confident knowing that your plumbing system is working properly and that the job is done right the first time around.
Get Your Bathroom Remodel Done Right
The truth is, contractors end up fixing a lot of other people’s mistakes when it comes to plumbing. That means the homeowner ends up paying a lot more to fix a poorly renovated pipe or sink when it could have been done right the first time around! A plumber is experienced in ordering parts that are the right fit for a home, so you know they’ll show up with the right tools and equipment. It may seem like a hassle and an added cost to hire a plumber, but it’s important that you have someone on the job who really knows what they are doing and can help you save overall.
