Don’t underestimate the importance of the unseen plumbing in your bathroom remodel. Whether for personal enjoyment or to increase the value of your home for resale, a bathroom remodel is a high impact change. Visually there are so many choices for each of the main categories:
- Flooring / Walls
- Countertops / Cabinets
- Fixtures / Hardware
It is easy to focus on the design aspects when beginning a remodel. Choosing colors, selecting surfaces and picking out finishes can keep you busy. Deciding on fixtures is important, however the plumbing that is hidden is vital and should not be overlooked. How much unseen plumbing in your bathroom remodel will need attention? This will depend on the age of your home, condition of pipes, leaks, clogs etc. Whether or not you have major plumbing issues to tackle during your remodel, don’t forget to replace:
- Drains / Washers
- Valves / Risers
- Pans / Liners
These unseen plumbing aspects will increase the function of your new fixtures. A beautiful faucet in a brand new sink loses its charm if it’s leaking or clogged. Leaks around faucet handles will quickly build up water deposits. Repeatedly clogged sinks, showers/tubs will leave ugly rings and are hard to keep clean. So keep your bathroom remodel looking new for years to come by remembering to replace the unseen plumbing too.
The installation of new toilets, sinks, baths, and showers is important. Bathrooms will be used every day, by many people. Incorrectly installed, they can lead to future leaks which will ruin flooring and cabinets. Leaks in unseen areas, will create mold damage.
