While there are countless resources online to learn DIY home improvement skills, many homeowners have regretted the decision to undertake their own plumbing projects. There are several precautions to be aware of before you start a plumbing project such as electrical, leaks and subsequent water damage, poor water pressure or drainage, and even contaminating your home’s water supply.
If you’re planning a residential kitchen or bathroom remodel, it pays to call in a professional plumber for a job done right. Here’s why.
They Can Handle Complex Projects
Moving the fixtures in your bathroom or kitchen, or adding new ones, can be an incredibly complex project. If you have to open walls and floors, a mistake can lead to anything from catastrophic damage to a slow, unseen leak that causes mold and structural damage. A mistake in a complex plumbing project can cost thousands to fix down the road.
They Know How Long a Project is Going to Take
With plumbing projects, there’s often a point of no return; where you can’t simply set your tools down and say you’ll come back to it tomorrow. Once you begin a project, you have to see it through or you don’t have a functioning fixture, possibly even no running water in the house. Hiring a professional ensures the job is completed on time and to spec.
They Expect the Unexpected
A plumber is a professional who has undergone extensive schooling and apprentice training in order to be able to anticipate every possible scenario as they’re doing a job. As with all home remodeling projects, problems can arise in the middle of a plumbing job. Unfortunately, working with plumber means you potentially could have flooded your house by the time a pro arrives. A plumber has the tools and the knowledge to quickly resolve any problem and get the job back on track.
They Save You Money
You may think DIY plumbing will save you money on your kitchen or bathroom remodel, but with everything that could potentially go wrong, it could wind up costing double or even triple what it would have cost to hire a professional upfront.
You also need to factor in tools and materials and the time it took you to research and learn what you needed to know to do it yourself. While calling a plumber is a bigger outlay initially, you’re guaranteed of a job done right the first time, and you can rest easy knowing there are no hidden mistakes lurking under your floors or behind your walls.
