As humans, we spend more time on the toilet than we like to admit. Studies suggest an average of one hour and 42 minutes a week, or almost 92 days over a lifetime. Factoring in the time spent in the shower, it amounts to much more than 92 days. You’d want any room you spend that much time in to be comfortable, functional, and stylish. Why should your bathroom be any exception? The plan is to make an important, central part of your home more comfortable.
After deciding that you want to remodel, you have another big decision to make. Are you going to go DIY or get some professional help? We know our readers are capable of a lot, including DIY projects. That said, we’re staunch believers in the importance of hiring a professional plumber for any bathroom remodel. Why? Because it’s cleaner, safer, and more cost effective in the long run. Here’s why you should consider getting a professional to help you remodel your bathroom:
Not to imply that remodelling your bathroom is risky business, but it can potentially be risky if you’re not prepared. Heavy and hard-to-lift fixtures are just the beginning. You should also be aware of water pressure, hot water, and leak risks.
A plumbing professional will know how to adjust your home’s water pressure and avoid or address hot water concerns. We’ll have the tools and tricks we need to deal with any remodeling safety concern. You hire plumbers so you’re ready for the unexpected.
Do you know what bathroom remodels frequently involve? Toilets. Do you know what toilet installations involve? Sewer lines. There are some things always worth leaving to the professionals. Waste disposal systems are at the top of that list.
The underlying message for all of these points is that professionals are better-equipped to handle surprises. When those surprises can potentially involve waste, it’s not worth the risk of doing it yourself. Leave the dirty work to us. You’ll be very glad you did.
It’s Cost Effective
The main problem homeowners usually have during DIY remodeling is biting off more than they can chew. It seems like all you’ll have to do is buy a fixture and attach it to some pipes, right? But then… You find out you have to measure everything properly, ensure that the threads will match, how to turn the water main off and more. Suddenly, what you thought was a simple project is a major undertaking.
There is also a possibility something may go wrong during these major undertakings like a pipe break. Something happens, and it spirals out of control. All of a sudden not only do you need your project finished, but you also need to fix the damage. Hiring a pro from the get-go almost always saves you money because you avoid accidents like these. Professional work is also usually insured. DIY plumbing remodels usually aren’t.
