Why You'll Need a Plumber for a Bathroom or Kitchen Remodel


Do-it-yourself work is all the rage these days. It’s great to feel like you’ve built or repaired something all on your own. Besides, it’s easy to access YouTube videos or Pinterest tutorials to help you with a wide variety of projects, not to mention self-help books, instruction manuals, and all types of help for anything from gardening to building a table to turning recycled bottles into jewelry.

We know there are self-help books and online tutorials available for your plumbing system as well, and they may be helpful for fixing a leaky sink or a running toilet. But if you’re taking on a renovation in your bathroom or kitchen, you’re going to need a hand.

How a Plumber Can Help With Your Remodel Project

Simply put: hiring a plumber for your bathroom or kitchen remodel means a lot less work for you. You might have to purchase a lot of tools you’ll never use again to do a DIY plumbing renovations. It can take hours, days, or even weeks out of your timeline for remodeling if you’re inexperienced, and you may be without important fixtures in the home for longer.

You may even plan your kitchen or bathroom remodel around avoiding major plumbing renovations, but you shouldn’t have to. A plumber can help you with everything you need:

  • Moving around plumbing pipes.
  • Moving drain lines
  • Installing a kitchen sink and garbage disposal
  • Installing a bathroom sink and plumbing lines
  • Adding spa equipment to the bathroom
  • Adding a rainfall showerhead

Plumbers Know Their Stuff

Here’s the main reason to hire a plumber for that bathroom renovation: they know what they are doing. That includes all of the smaller details that homeowners or even a “handyman” wouldn’t think of. Building codes limit what can and should be done to alter your plumbing, for your own health and safety. Local plumbers know the local codes and are able to ensure everything is up to code and help with filing any permits that may be necessary.

Then, of course, there’s the fact that a plumbing job is completed a lot faster when it’s done by someone who knows what they are doing. And you can feel confident knowing that your plumbing system is working properly and that the job is done right the first time around.
