Plumbing projects can appear more frequently than you might think. What's more, they're often more complicated than first anticipated. Unfortunately, most people don’t give their plumbing a second thought until there is a problem. Aside from the headaches and damage that burst pipes or leaky valves can cause, these complicated projects will often require the expertise of a professional plumbing service. Because let’s face it - if plumbing is involved, there is a lot of planning to go along with it. And the London Ontario plumbing experts at BEST can help you every step of the way. Here are some things to keep in mind when renovating your bathroom, kitchen or laundry room.
Whether you’re upgrading your existing bathroom or adding a second powder room to your home, get ready for some tricky work. Before you start relocating pipes, it's best to consult with our plumbing experts on a few key points:
People usually think that kitchen plumbing starts and ends with the kitchen sink. Wrong! Plumbing also extends to the dishwasher and refrigerator water dispenser too.
While you shouldn’t be afraid to move the sink or dishwasher when remodelling, you need to realize that even a small move could mean major plumbing work. If you’re moving your cabinets, take a look at the plumbing lines while you’re at it. Check for wear and tear on the pipes and inspect the condition of the various plumbing components.
If you’re buying a new fridge, find out of it will need a water line. Don’t leave this until the fridge is inside the home – get this plumbing done ahead of time.
Frequently homeowners like to relocate their laundry room or transform a closet or bedroom into a laundry room. Either way, you will really benefit from consulting the London Ontario plumbing experts at BEST to run an entirely new plumbing system.
One thing to consider prior to moving your laundry facilities are the floor drains. This is of particular importance if the appliances are on the second floor. The path runoff of these drains will ultimately affect where you can locate your washer.
