Kitchen and Bath Remodeling
East Valley and Phoenix
Kitchen and bathroom renovations are exciting, but they’re also a lot of work and a bit overwhelming. Before you can even worry about having new cabinets, counter tops, appliances, and fixtures put into your home, you need to focus on your plumbing. It’s almost certain that there are going to be some necessary plumbing modifications and enhancements that you should make before having the rest of the remodel completed.
Below are the most common plumbing considerations and changes necessary for a kitchen or bathroom renovation.
CONSIDER WHAT NEEDS MOVING
While going over ideas, you should make note of which fixtures you’re going to move from one location to another. This is a very serious concern because you’ll likely have to reroute plumbing and electricity to make these changes work out alright. Take some time, make notes and figure out exactly what changes are necessary and what aren’t. Talk with the professional that’s responsible for your remodel and work out what plumbing changes are necessary, so you can relay this information to Kowality Plumbing. If you’re working with a general contractor, they can make sure that all the necessary changes are made aware to us so that they can be made before the other projects are under way.
REROUTE THE PLUMBING
Now that you know where all of your fixtures are going to go, it’s time to get them rerouted. Have Kowality Plumbing come into your home and move around all the plumbing to its final destination to meet the needs of your remodel plan. This may take some time and effort, but it will all be worthwhile when your kitchen or bathroom is ready to go for the remodelers.
Your sink, your refrigerator and your dishwasher should all have shutoffs. At the very least you want a water shutoff that cuts water going to all of these appliances in your home. This gives you more control over your plumbing and helps ensure that you can easily respond to a leak. Ask Kowality Plumbing about adding in some shutoffs when getting your new plumbing all ready for the remodel.
SWITCH TO MODERN PLUMBING
One excellent investment that you can make when remodeling is to upgrade to a modern plumbing option like copper or PEX if you have older style iron pipes running through your home. By upgrading you’ll make maintaining your plumbing easier and you’ll also make it easier to reroute plumbing if you want your sink or your appliances in a different location than they’re currently in.
ADD IN ADDITIONAL PLUMBING
Many kitchen remodels add in additional fixtures and requirements that weren’t originally there. If you decide to get the fridge with the ice maker, you’ll need a water supply line to run to it. If you decide to add in a dishwasher or a garbage disposal, you’ll need to modify your plumbing to meet those needs. These are important considerations that you have to make, so sit down and talk with Kowality Plumbing to make sure all the necessary plumbing is being put in place for every enhancement that you’ll be making to the kitchen.
