When planning a bathroom remodel, the first important decision is whether to hire an experienced plumber to do the job, or tackle it yourself. Considering that the average homeowner spends at least 30 minutes a day in the bathroom, it makes sense that remodels are completed up to code from the get-go. Money will always be the deciding factor, so let’s make it clear – a professional plumber is always the smartest choice in the long run.
There are lots of websites and DIY books that make this work seem simple, but this is misleading. When removing, reconnecting or rerouting water lines is done improperly, you can make a small mistake – like a slow leak on a fitting – which could cost you a lot of money down the line. A slow drip on an incorrectly soldered fitting can develop into a constant loss of water, resulting in high water bills, and if your caulk is not sealed correctly, water can leak all over the floors. All these easy mistakes don’t even take into account the cost of cleanup and repair caused by water damage.
A licensed plumber has had plenty of training to avoid the issues mentioned above, plus the benefit of learning new techniques in the industry. Most importantly, he has the knowledge and experience to do the job right the first time.
