Plumbing Changes You Should Make When Renovating Your Home

Is a home renovation project in your future plans? This can be an exciting time, but it can also be quite overwhelming. Not only can a renovation create chaos in your home for a while, it can also create a financial burden. If you’re remodeling an area of your home that has existing plumbing such as the kitchen, bathroom, or an unfinished basement, here are some plumbing changes that should be addressed when planning the renovation.

Replacing Old Plumbing

An older home has a lot of charm, but it also has the potential for plumbing problems. The reason for this is that many older homes have aging water pipes that should be replaced to avoid leaks and water damage. When the walls are open, ask your plumber to examine the existing pipes for signs of wear and tear, corrosion, and other problems. While re-piping is not the most existing part of a renovation, sometimes it is necessary to avoid problems down the road.

Replacing Outdated Fixtures

Are you updating your bathroom? Whether you’re giving your bathroom a fresh coat of paint or relocating its major components, consider updating old fixtures with energy-efficient fixtures. Bathroom components such as faucets, showerheads, and toilets are now available at reasonable prices and conserve hundreds of gallons of water in a single month. WaterSense fixtures meet EPA standards for low-flow usage without reducing performance. In some communities, you may even be able to get money back in the form of rebates and tax incentives. Your local Rooter Hero Plumbing technician will be able to help you determine if these incentives are available for your situations. These are just two plumbing changes you may want to consider when renovating an existing space. For more suggestions, call your friendly plumber before you begin your project. By speaking with a plumber before you begin your project, you can ensure that your expectations of the completed project will be met with as few design hiccups as possible. It will also safeguard the installation and make sure that your renovation is up to current building code requirements.
