Kitchen & Bathroom Remodeling in St. Louis
Quality Plumbing Renovations for Homes in St. Louis County
When homeowners are getting prepared to remodel their bathroom or their kitchen, it is often easy to overlook the plumbing side of things as they focus on renovating the rest of the room’s infrastructure. Some residents may even purposely ignore their drain lines and plumbing fixtures, holding the view that it is never wise to mess with something that is working “just fine.” Because new plumbing will add to the expenses of the remodeling project, people might be tempted to forgo this kind of work altogether to save a few bucks.
However, this lack of foresight often ends in disaster that is only discovered too late – your newly furnished bathroom floor is flooded by a burst sewer pipe or wastewater damages your remodeled kitchen cupboards. Avoid these situations with the help of our dedicated St. Louis kitchen and bathroom remodeling experts.
How Kitchen Appliance Configuration Affects Plumbing
Understandably, when homeowners are remodeling their kitchens, it is easy to become engrossed in selecting the perfect style of floor tiles, countertop colors, and unique finishes to create the perfect ambiance. While these details are certainly significant, it is more important to first establish the actual layout of your kitchen, and where you will install appliances such as the fridge, sink, garbage disposal, and dishwasher.
These devices directly influence how your plumbing will be configured, so it’s important to arrange exact dimensions before the flooring and cabinets are installed. Otherwise, you may need to uproot your beautiful new amenities when you discover they are accidentally blocking the piping for the dishwasher, or there is no connection to provide drinkable water or make ice from your fridge.
Important Considerations for Bathroom Remodels
Because there are so many fixtures that deal with transferring and carrying fresh or wastewater, it is essential to carefully consider your plumbing arrangements when remodeling your bathroom.
Before moving on with your bathroom remodeling project, be sure to nail down the following details:
- The length and depth of your sink’s basin
- The precise location of the pipes for the toilet and sink
- How the arrangement of the shower and tub might affect your other bathroom plumbing
- The ease of access for any future repairs or maintenance for your bathroom’s fixtures
Proactive Protection of Your Home
It can be tempting to think that you can take care of any plumbing issues when you come across them later. However, the right time to ensure your plumbing is working well is right now when all the drains and plumbing lines are exposed for remodeling work.
