Are you thinking about adding a farmhouse kitchen sink? Those are all the rage these days. Maybe you’re interested in updating your dishwasher. Whatever the plumbing upgrade, the question is: are you going to hire a plumber or go the DIY method? We know you may be capable of performing many DIY repairs, especially with YouTube around. But, we’re also very firm believers in the importance of working with a professional plumber for any plumbing remodel. “Why,” you ask? Simply put, because it’s cost-effective and safe.
Plumbers are Knowledgable
First off, plumbers know their stuff. They go to school and complete an apprenticeship to become a journeyman plumber. While they’re known for clearing clogged drains, that’s just a small portion of what they do. Plumbers also know how to install pipes, plumbing fixtures, and appliances. They’re trained to inspect, diagnose, and repair all types of plumbing.
Permits for Kitchen Remodels
If your kitchen remodel is a large enough project, you’ll need to have permits before you perform the work for safety-related reasons. If your remodel is a complete overhaul where you’re changing out the entire layout, you’ll not only need major plumbing work performed, but you’ll also need to report it to the proper authorities. Doing improvements to anything connected to the sewer will also require a license. Plumbers are knowledgeable about building codes and can help you file any necessary permits.
Hiring a Plumber is Cost-Effective
Not to brag or anything, but we’re often called to fix other people’s plumbing DIY projects gone wrong. By hiring a plumber from the start, you save time, stress, and money. Don’t forget all of those trips you may have to make at the hardware store to buy tools you’ll never use again.
Experts in Kitchen Remodels
If you’ve never remodeled your kitchen before, it’s best to not try now, even if you’re looking to save money. Before starting your kitchen remodel, talk with plumbers in your area. Tell them what you envision and learn about their qualifications and experience. Hiring a certified plumber for your kitchen remodel will not only make your life much easier, but you’ll also have peace of mind knowing your plumbing was done right.
