But dread, too, because starting a major home improvement project is a bit daunting, especially if you own an older home like the ones in our neighborhood. You may have visions of throwing money out the window, or worry about botched plumbing jobs or causing more problems than you are solving. Maybe you have heard horror stories of bathroom remodels gone wrong. While these concerns are understandable, it’s important to remember that a quality bathroom remodel, done right the first time, helps avoid future problems and saves energy and money in the long run.
Predictable Versus Unpredictable Emergencies
When it comes to plumbing emergencies, there are some that are somewhat predictable and others that aren’t. For instance, if you don’t routinely use a liquid unclogging agent on your drains, hair and other residue will build up inside your pipes. Eventually, that could lead to a major blockage. It’s only a matter of time. Once the blockage exists, your pipes will get backed up and your sinks, bathtubs, and other fixtures may in turn get backed up.
Another sign that a plumbing emergency may be coming is if you have had persistent leaks or had different sections of pipes in your home repaired or replaced fairly regularly in recent years. Widespread plumbing issues throughout your home could be a sign that the end is near for your entire pipe system.
On the other hand, there are some plumbing emergencies that can just seem to strike out of the blue. A clogged toilet is possibly the most common. You might have no warning at all about that sort of thing. Here at Morningside Plumbing we know the feeling of having a busy day interrupted by some sort of emergency, and we don’t want you to have to deal with that for any longer than is absolutely necessary. That’s why, when you call us, you can count on us to be there for you in a pinch.
Bathroom Remodeling Ideas Big And Small
Your bathroom remodel may be as simple as replacing an old, drippy, leaky sink with a lovely new pedestal sink, or the installation of a new enclosed shower. Or, it may be a more complete remodel, replacing leaky pipes and rebuilding everything in the room. Aside from creating a more functional space, a newly remodeled bathroom will be more efficient and give you greater peace of mind. The plumbing in older homes is notorious for springing leaks, gurgling, flooding, and driving homeowners nuts from incessant dripping. Whether you want ultra-modern plumbing fixtures or replicas of the ancient ones you’re replacing, the success of your bathroom remodeling project depends on the skill of your plumber – and how well your plumber “gets” the look you want to create.
Why You Should Let A Professional Atlanta Plumber Remodel Your Bathroom
While there are certainly some do-it-yourself projects you can take on, a major bathroom remodel shouldn’t be one of them. For simple improvements, like installing a new faucet, painting or switching out a light fixture, sure. But for installing showers and tubs, sinks, toilets and the like, it’s best to have the pros come out. This is especially true with an older home. There are a number of considerations when remodeling your bathroom, as well as potential problems you may come across.
Is your current bathroom up to code? Older homes are full of surprises. Wiring and plumbing aren’t always standard. While many older homes have been updated, this isn’t always the case.
Do you have a hidden mold problem? Often, you don’t see it until you start remodeling. Wood rot, mold and other types of water damage are often present. It takes a professional to handle these situations in a safe manner that doesn’t cause more damage.
Do you want to improve your home’s value? A bathroom remodel is a major investment. It adds monetary value to your home, and it also protects your home from damage, allows it to run more efficiently and increases visual and functional appeal. For this reason, it’s important not to take shortcuts.
