Consider This When Remodeling Your Bathroom


Springtime seems to be a pretty popular time for San Diego area homeowners to invest in remodeling projects for their homes. Bathrooms are typically a huge focus for remodels, with many people attempting to complete these remodels on their own. We don’t doubt that skilled homeowners have what it takes to complete simple remodeling tasks, however when it comes to bathroom remodels, it’s very important to have a San Diego, CA plumbing professional to handle the piping and plumbing fixture needs of your space.

That’s what our team is here for! Go ahead and give us a call for reliable bathroom plumbing installations. In the meantime, keep reading to learn about some considerations homeowners tend to look over when it comes to bathroom remodels.

Your Home May Need Repiping

Homes built in the 1970’s or earlier have pipes that are susceptible to corrosion and subsequent leaks. If your bathroom has never been remodeled before or if you have already been experiencing leaky faucets and fixtures, there’s a good chance you may need repiping.

Fortunately, the perfect time to invest in this service—at least for your bathroom—is during a remodel! That’s because all of your plumbing will be exposed anyway. Additionally, repiping allows you more freedom in designing the exact bathroom you want, since your piping can work with the changes rather than being something your plumbers have to work around.

Set Your Budget from the Beginning

There are many factors that go into plumbing installations, whether it be a huge installation like repiping or the installation of a small bathroom sink. But if you are planning on moving any fixtures, such as your toilet or sink, or if you want a larger toilet, for example, the cost of your plumbing project can start growing.

Your plumbing fixtures and appliances must be aligned and properly fitted with your bathroom space, so prior adjustments and construction might be needed in order to accommodate. If you are open about your budget at the beginning of your bathroom plumbing project, then it’s easier for our plumbers to work with you to see what options are available.

Consider Your Bathroom Efficiency

When you hear the term energy efficiency, it’s likely that you think about things like electrical appliances and lighting. These, of course, do contribute to your overall energy usage. However, in this case, we’re talking about your plumbing appliances. Are you unintentionally wasting water?

Today’s plumbing installation options include things such as low-flow showerheads, low-flush toilets, and other plumbing appliances that help reduce water consumption. Therefore, your water bills can drop too, and that savings over the long run can help offset the initial installation costs.

Now Is the Time to Indulge

Have you been thinking about indulging in luxuries like a whirlpool bathtub or a multi-bowl “Jack and Jill” style sink? The perfect time for such an installation, if your budget allows, is during your bathroom plumbing project.

This way, you can rest assured that your additions will fit in with your current plumbing fixtures and appliances, and you won’t need to make adjustments later. We’ll help you choose quality, high-efficiency plumbing appliances that will ultimately help you save.
