bathroom renovation with his and her sinks.Plumbers are often associated with fixing a burst pipe, a leaky faucet, or toilet that won’t stop running. When it comes to home renovations, you should consider hiring a plumber for your home renovations before trying to do anything on your own. Why? We save you money in the long run. The fact is, it is less expensive to hire a plumber to help you than to have us come to your home for an emergency. Whether it’s a kitchen or bathroom renovation, plumbers are there to help you. We can make the renovation process go smoother and faster. However, there’s a few things to keep in mind when hiring a plumber for home renovations.

Make a Plan Ahead of Time

Before you call a plumber for home renovations, you need have an idea of what you’re looking for. Make a list of what you are renovating and add in any types of plumbing fixtures you want to renovate with. For example, if you are renovating your bathroom, think about the types of bathtubs you like. If you don’t like bathtubs, think about what you want the shower to look like – which includes the shower head. If you need help with this part, a designer can help. Plumbers can give you ideas for fixtures but we are not designers. It’s wise to have an idea of what you are looking for before you call a plumber.  A solid plumbing plan saves us both time.

Finding the Right Plumber for Your Home Renovation

Once you have your plumbing plan, you can call around to get a few estimates for your renovation. Prior to call around to find the right plumber for your home renovation, check their reviews. You want to seek out reviews of happy customers who used the plumber for home renovation – not just their emergency plumbing work. Many plumbers have pictures of the work they did during a renovation project. However, those pictures may be of the work itself and not the finished renovation. It may seem tempting to go with the plumber who bids the lowest but that’s not always the wisest idea. Instead, work with the plumber who shares your vision. Before you hire anyone, make sure you check their state license and ask them about insurance.

 

 

Preparing for the Renovation

As your home renovation starts to come together, there’s a few things still left to do. First and foremost, make sure you or your plumber obtain the right permit. It’s not worth a fine because you didn’t obtain a permit for doing the work. Next comes prepping your home. Keep the space you are renovating clean and tidy. That means ensuring the space is de-cluttered and well-lit. You want to make the space as easily accessible as possible for plumbers like us to do our work, unobstructed. Lastly, plan to have work done on your home while you are home. While we don’t need you standing with us as we work, it’s good to be within earshot in case we have questions or we uncover something that could change your renovation plans (it happens!) – you’ll want to be close.
