There are a number of steps and tasks involved with a bathroom remodel—from the fairly simple job of removing old fixtures and attaching the plumbing connections for new ones, to making design decisions regarding flooring and sink types.

One job during this remodel that we strongly recommend, which many homeowners don’t think about, is the replacement of the piping in your bathroom.

Sure, this may sound like one of those unnecessary professional plumbing services in Teaneck & Bergen County, NJ, but it is not as time-consuming or hard of a job as you might imagine, particularly with our professional plumbers on the job. Besides, there are some huge benefits to making pipe replacement a part of your bathroom remodel.

HOW OLD IS YOUR HOME?

Or rather, how old is your plumbing system? If you’ve reached the point where you’re considering a bathroom remodel, it’s likely because you have an older home that needs some upgrades, or at least updating the style. For a home that was built prior to 1970, the piping material is probably too old and needs replacement anyway.

Homes built before this period often used galvanized steel pipes rather than copper, CPVC, or PEX pipes—all of which are better choices. Galvanized steel may be durable, however, it’s prone to corrosion of time, and you should have it replaced at any opportunity you can. Since a remodel in your bathroom will expose the pipes, it’s far easier and less time-consuming to have the replacements done as part of the overall remodeling project.

Additionally, a planned pipe replacement allows you some wiggle room in the design process for your bathroom remodel. If you or your remodelers have to work around existing plumbing, it can limit the options for rearranging the bathroom and putting fixtures in alternative locations. If our plumbers work with you to change out the plumbing entirely, then it opens up the process to more extensive re-design concepts.

WORKING WITH PROFESSIONAL PLUMBERS

The plumbers on our team will work with you from the earliest planning stages of your remodel all the way to the finishing touches. Whatever your plumbing needs are in order to create the bathroom you’re envisioning for your home, we have the expertise and training to work with you in fulfilling that vision.

An Added Benefit

There’s another advantage to working with professional plumbers, rather than attempting to fix, adjust, or install plumbing parts and fixtures on your own. Professionals have the experience and know-how to realize exactly what your bathroom needs. For instance, do you know your current toilet’s rough-in size?

The rough-in size is a description of the opening on which the toilet is installed. If your new toilet is too big, or too small, then it cannot be sealed correctly. As a result, you’ll end up with messy leaks and potentially costly plumbing repair needs.

Another factor to consider is your shower floor. A common mistake that inexperienced home remodelers make is not slanting the floor correctly. This means that water is unable to go down the drain, and instead just stands stagnant on your shower floor.

The bathroom isn’t a room in your house that you probably associate with glamour or style. But a professionally handled bathroom remodel can do marvels for your daily life, even if it’s a simple job that only replaces the fixtures.

Here are 3 good guidelines to consider when you arrange to have bathroom remodeling in Bergenfield, NJ.

Contact the skilled and experienced plumbing remodelers at BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating, Inc. to get started with planning for your new, beautiful bathroom.

I. Plumbing replacement is your friend

When redesigning a bathroom, you might consider leaving the pipes alone and concentrate on changing the fixtures, such as the faucets and the toilet. However, the pipes of your bathroom will be exposed during the remodel, and that means you have an opportunity to replace aging pipes. Even better, a full repiping gives you more freedom to remake the bathroom whatever way you want. You no longer have to work the remodel around the pipes!

II. Make the bathroom less water-wasteful

A bathroom remodel can be about more than increasing the bathroom’s attractiveness with better fixtures. It can be about a more water-efficient bathroom that reduces your water use by almost 30%. With the addition of low-flow sink faucets, showerheads, and installation of a low-flow toilet, you can make the bathroom one of the main sources of water saving in your home. (The planet will thank you as well.)

III. Remember to look after your luxury

Don’t think of a bathroom remodel as strictly a chore. This is a chance to enhance one of the most important and often used rooms in your house to make it more pleasant for everyone. All the changes in the bathroom don’t have to center around purely utilitarian tasks. Add in a whirlpool bathtub for relaxation. Opt for a classy vessel or pedestal sink to give the room a fresh and stylish look. Ask your remodelers for suggestions on appliance replacements and additions that will make your new bathroom more luxurious.

It’s crucial that you depend on experienced plumbers for a bathroom remodel, since this room relies on water flow more than any other in your home. With the right plumbers on your side for your bathroom remodel in Bergenfield, NJ, such as the ones at BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating, Inc., you can feel assured that you will receive the remodel that will make your bathroom more beautiful, luxurious, and water-conserving.
