Holiday Remodeling and Calling the PlumberBrian Simpson | Dec 12, 2016
You are quickly trying to complete holiday remodelling for your second bathroom before guests arrive in another week or two. It is a do-it-yourself project that you want to look perfect but the project is more than you anticipated. Before you get overwhelmed, consider enlisting the help of a plumber.
3 Reasons for Hiring a Plumber for Holiday Remodeling
A Professional Plumber Won’t Improvise
If you’ve designed a new layout for your bathroom remodel, your risk is high that things can go wrong. All too often, measurements don’t add up correctly and you don’t have the tools or equipment. When this happens a homeowner like yourself often improvises. You might try to add miscellaneous parts in place of what you don’t have or skip steps because you didn’t realize how important they were. We’ve seen it all – pipe mazes beneath sinks, wrenches used permanently to hold a sink together, doors that won’t close because toilets were installed too close, mold problems because of improper waterproofing, and so much more. It’s not the impression you want to give your guests. A professional plumber will have the knowledge, tools, and equipment to get the work done properly.
The Liability is Not on You
You don’t want the liability of fixing a major problem when your do-it-yourself project goes terribly wrong. So many mistakes can happen with bad plumbing that can be high-cost liabilities. We’re not just talking about the cost of a permit and penalty if you forget it when it’s needed. You might have to tear everything you’ve done out to satisfy the permitting inspector. And they won’t accept improvising. Plus, the potential for injury is especially high when you are working with large or heavy appliances and fixtures. It’s not worth the risk of pulling your back out when you remove a toilet or seriously cutting yourself when you drop it. When hiring a professional for bathroom remodelling, look for a reputable master plumber who is licensed and insured.
You Don’t Want the Stress
The holidays are here and you have enough to do to get ready. The added stress of trying to complete a bathroom remodelling project on time can be enough to overwhelm anyone. And when you are rushed, you are more likely to make big mistakes. You could also come across some major problems that you weren’t expecting like corroded plumbing, a leak or mold damage. A lot of time homeowners don’t plan for the unexpected, let alone know how to address issues when they arise. This can cause more stress and significantly delay your project. A plumber will realistically know the time frame for completion, what potential problems you could encounter, and how to deal with them promptly.
