Why you should call a licensed plumber for your bathroom remodel

Remodeling your bathroom can be an exciting project, allowing you to update fixtures, finishes and the layout to suit your personal taste. 

While the aspect of a remodeled bathroom can be thrilling, the actual work involved in a bathroom remodel can be complex and difficult. Simple cosmetic upgrades such as a new floor or paint can be performed by most homeowners. However work that involves electrical, plumbing or structural carpentry are best left to the professionals. 

When you start to consider a bathroom remodel, we recommend you call Plumbers 911 to speak with one of our affiliated plumbing contractors who can help plan the project and get the job done right.

Extensive plumbing knowledge 

Licensed plumbers have extensive knowledge of local building codes, proper installation methods and material requirements that the average homeowner lacks. They know the most efficient and safe ways to route pipes, plus will select the right size products for your home’s water supply lines. 

Attempting to install new plumbing yourself without this specialized knowledge can result in leaks, flooding, mold growth or structural issues if done incorrectly.

Correct fixture placement 

The placement of items in your bathroom such as a new sink, tub or shower can be tricky. Licensed plumbers are experts at identifying load-bearing walls to determine the best placement of new water or sewer lines that will not compromise your home’s structural integrity. They also know how to correctly locate lines hidden inside the walls in order to take advantage of your home’s existing plumbing system. 

Trying to relocate waterlines or plumbing appliances on your own can lead to expensive mistakes if the new location is not properly supported or served by supply lines. It can also lead to the unnecessary removal of drywall and or flooring.

Advanced tools and equipment 

Correctly installing or replacing plumbing appliances or water or drain lines requires specialty tools like basin wrenches, pipe cutters, compression equipment and more that most DIYers do not own. 

Licensed plumbing contractors invest thousands of dollars into professional-grade equipment that allows their trained plumbers to get the job done safely, efficiently and correctly the first time. Attempting a bathroom remodel plumbing project without the proper tools can result in injury, damage or improper installation, ultimately costing the homeowner significant time and money. 

Permits and inspections 

Depending on the scope of your remodel project, you may be required to pull plumbing or other types of permits from your local building authority before you start the work. 

The licensed plumbers affiliated with Plumbers 911 know the permits needed for each project and will acquire them for you. Additionally, they will schedule all necessary inspections to ensure the work meets all building codes. 

If you fail to get the required permits, you risk being fined, having to rip out certain areas so an inspector can look at lines or wires hidden in walls or under floors, being forced to redo work that is not up to code and potentially having problems when you sell your home down the road.

Accountability and warranties 

Using a licensed, professional plumber protects you should anything fail or leak. Reputable plumbing contractors stand behind their employees’ work and will address any issues that arise due to improper installation. 

Attempting extensive plumbing work yourself will result in no accountability if problems arise, and you will shoulder the cost for any needed repairs.

While simple tasks like replacing a faucet might be reasonable for some homeowners, extensive bathroom remodels require professional plumbing expertise. 

Do not risk thousands of dollars in damage or end up with unsafe, leak-prone plumbing.
