Even if you’re not thinking about a full breakdown and rebuild, there are some things you should consider which may involve a professional plumber’s help. Often homeowners attempt to perform their own upgrades to their bathroom components but most of the time when they attempt such a project they are limited by their tools and knowledge and unable to get to the goal they had imagined. Most often, toilets, tubs and showers are the target of a bathroom remodel.

Even seemingly simple replacements may not be feasible without the proper piping know how which a plumber can offer. For this reason, hiring a professional can be a huge help to get what you want out of the repair. Often your local certified plumber can help you out for an affordable rate, all the while being able to assure of a complete and wholesome job and a new pristine tub & shower design.

There are two types of jobs which homeowners might need when they are looking to replace showers and tubs. The first is a simple replacement and the second is a remodeling job.

Remodels vs. Replacements:

Remodels will often require new pipe layouts, a comprehensive pipe inspection and potentially some electrical work for outlets or heaters. While these can be a great way to personalize your bathroom and add value to your home, they can also be a burden on the wallet, so do your homework and make sure you know what a remodeling job entails. However many times homeowners will prefer to simply replace the shower or tub individually without changing too many pipes or causing too much commotion. In this case you will have to determine if your plumber of choice is capable of non-invasive installation. Sometimes they are not and using them could mean having to tear apart walling and flooring just to reconfigure certain pipes and valves. Only expert residential plumbers offer non-invasive means of installing showers and tubs as the procedures are newer and difficult.

­Make sure you only hire a certified plumber in your area!!! Many non-certified plumbers purport to be “experts” who are capable of performing an installation for cheap. The problem with these contractors is that they cannot offer warranties or any protection for your installation and their work may not be alongside correct code and regulations. Illegitimate plumbing service contractor can have you paying more in repair and maintenance costs which could have been avoided. Regulations exist for a reason and failing to follow them could lead to more headaches and issues for the homeowner, especially without any form of warranty.

If you cannot verify a contractor’s license, you will be wasting time and money by placing an unnecessary risk upon your home.  Jeff’s Kitchen, Bath and Beyond in Orlando, FL is ready and waiting to help you with your bathroom remodeling projects.
