Did you know a high quality bathroom renovation can add 10% to a Melbourne property’s value? When completed to a high standard by a professional plumber, this type of refit is guaranteed to enhance your home and grow your investment. But the quality of the renovation really does need to shine, and it’s easier than you think to make the wrong decisions about fittings, fixtures, and pipework positions.
Australia has stringent laws on DIY plumbing precisely to protect homeowners against costly renovation mistakes. In most states, it’s illegal to work on plumbing without the help of a licensed tradesman so it’s useful to know what they do and how to find one. In this article, the professionals at Melbourne 24 Hour Plumbing explain why it’s important to hire the right plumber for your bathroom refit.
1. You Won’t Be Breaking the Law
Before attempting any kind of DIY plumbing, check the regulations for your area. It may be illegal for you to carry out the renovation work by yourself. Hiring a professional keeps you on the right side of the law and it means your home gets covered by a robust tradesmens’ insurance policy. In the unlikely event something goes wrong, you won’t be out of pocket because your plumber is liable for all damages. Hiring a professional means being protected.
2. You Get to Benefit from a Plumber’s Experience
A professional plumber’s years of experience are invaluable particularly when it comes to getting the most out of your money. There’s no problem or hitch they haven’t dealt with before so you can expect a fast, efficient refit even if your bathroom renovation is extensive or awkwardly shaped. They can give you advice on which features age well, where to get top quality tapware and how to improve narrow pipes and sluggish drains.
3. You Can Expect Less Mess and More Success
While you may need to tear up floors and put holes in walls to locate important pipes, a professional plumber has extensive knowledge of residential plumbing systems. Usually, they know exactly where the key pipes are before starting refit work which means less mess and more precise hammering, drilling and removing. The less work that’s needed to return your home to a liveable state after major plumbing work, the less you’ll pay for your bathroom renovation.
4. You Get a Chance to Fix Old Plumbing Problems
A top quality bathroom renovation is about so much more than just adding new features. If there’s existing problems such as a slow running drain or a toilet that backs up after heavy rains, it’s a great chance to resolve them. Your professional plumber will identify areas that aren’t functioning as well as they should and improve them before work starts on tiling, plastering, flooring and any decorative details. So you get two jobs in one: a ‘nip and tuck’ for your bathroom’s weaker fixtures and a highly polished plumbing renovation.
5. You’re Guaranteed a Good Job, First Time Around
When a bathroom refit is complete, it’s the aesthetic features like tiling and flooring that catch the eye. The most important work – pipe connections, leak proofing, drainage outlets etc, – is concealed so it’s easy to forget how essential it is. Your bathroom might look like a million dollars but, if the underlying plumbing work isn’t good enough, it won’t add the type of value a future buyer really wants. Hiring a professional plumber means you can expect a brand new plumbing system that performs efficiently from day one and gives your bathroom a sense of assuredness and reliability. No more backed up toilets, no persistently clogged drains and certainly no vulnerable or strained pipes.
