Don’t Neglect the Plumbing: Remodeling Your Brooklyn Bathroom
We salute the DIY skills of our Brooklyn neighbors, but that bathroom remodeling project you’re thinking about might be a little more than you can handle without professional help. It’s a little too easy to tear up the bathroom, only to find yourself in the middle of a plumbing repair project you don’t have the skill or money to complete.
One mistake during a bathroom remodel can damage your Brooklyn home plumbing. This means costly repairs on top of the remodeling itself. That’s why it’s important to involve a plumber on the front-end to catch problems before they can arise.
Taking care of your plumbing
Factors to consider when preparing to remodel your bathroom:
- Pipe age: If your pipes are old, installing new bathroom fixtures can stress your plumbing, increasing the risk of leaking or bursting.
- Pipe condition: Before you start remodeling, you need to check for plumbing leaks. Frequent leaks can mean it’s necessary to repipe the bathroom. A professional plumber can also find the hidden leaks that could be damaging your bathroom and home without your knowledge.
- Drain condition: What good will it do to remodel your bathroom if the drains aren’t working right? Have the drains inspected to ensure they are properly installed and functioning.
