Get an Estimate Before Changing Features’ Locations
When you contact a certified plumber, ask for an estimate on how much it would cost to move any features that you’d like to move. Knowing the cost of relocating a sink, tub or toilet will help you budget for the rest of your plumbing renovation.
Upgrade Pipes When Moving Features
If you decide to move features, such as a kitchen sink or bathroom shower, you’ll need to reroute some of the pipes in your home. You upgrade the pipes that are being rerouted. Since these pipes have to be removed and reinstalled anyways, you’re already paying for the labor that would be required to upgrade them. The material costs usually don’t add too much to the total project price. Any pipes you upgrade will be less prone to leaks because they’re newer.
Upgrading your home’s plumbing isn’t difficult, as long as you follow these tips. Talk to us first, and invest in upgrading your pipes, and you should be pleased with how your project goes.
