If you’re a fan of home improvement television shows, you might think a bathroom upgrade is all about cosmetics. But there are more reasons to upgrade your Brooklyn bathroom than style alone. Renovating a bathroom can lower your water bills, address failing fixtures, improve your home’s overall cleanliness and health, and generally make the bathroom a more functional, comfortable space.
Partnering with an experienced plumber like your neighbors at Petri Plumbing & Heating is important to the success of any bathroom upgrade. We have more than 100 years of experience with all kinds of plumbing projects, and we can point you towards fixtures and upgrades that will fit your needs and improve the value of your Brooklyn home.
How do you know it’s time for a bathroom upgrade? Here are some tips.
If you are feeling the crunch of high water bills, the best place to cut your water use is in the bathroom, especially if you have drippy faucets or a constantly running toilet. Installing modern, high-efficiency faucets, showers and toilets will save water without any noticeable lack of water pressure or performance. They’ll pay for themselves over time, and the new fixtures will update your bathroom’s look, too.
Does your bathroom smell? Leaking faucets can lead to mold and mildew growth, and a failing wax seal around your toilet can let bad smells out. Installing new fixtures can help as can installing better ventilation. A toilet with a concealed trapway is another great option to make your bathroom easier to clean.
While you’re upgrading the parts of your bathroom you can see, don’t forget about the parts you can’t. Many of our Brooklyn homes are older, and that means aging pipes within the walls. While you’re upgrading your bathroom, consider getting your pipes inspected, too. Going the extra mile today can save you from a disaster tomorrow.
