Re-pipe and Remodel
Remodeling your kitchen (More on kitchen remodels ») or bathroom (More on bathroom remodels ») can be a very rewarding experience, but it is definitely a large undertaking. That’s why you should contact us at Amesos Plumbing, so that we can guide you through the process and make sure you make the best decisions for your living space.
Re-piping and remodeling can sometimes mean enduring a few weeks of inconvenience as you have to find other ways to do the things that you would normally do, such as washing dishes by hand instead of using your dishwasher. Amesos Plumbing does our best to make sure that time is as short as possible, and is ultimately worth your time.
Replacing your pipes
Plumbing in homes is typically built to last a long time, but when the time comes, you will start to notice things like signs of water leaks, or discoloration in your water. Homes that are 60 or more years old and have not had their pipes replaced should definitely have their pipes inspected, but newer homes can have their pipes break down over time too.
You might also notice that there is not much water pressure. This is a sign of galvanized piping, which means that the piping could be plugged up with corrosion and rust. When this occurs, it is very important to have an expert plumber take a look at your plumbing. Although it may be cheaper to just replace the really bad sections of your plumbing, once galvanized piping starts to show up, you will inevitably end up needing to replace your entire system. If you opt for replacing only the pipes that are the immediate problem, you are only temporarily holding off future plumbing costs.
Remodeling often requires moving pipes around and removing old fixtures, which is the perfect time to consider more water efficient sinks, showerheads, and toilets, which can save you money on your monthly bills. Amesos Plumbing can help you choose from the best environment friendly products so that you get your dream shower or kitchen. We want to make sure that your remodeled space isn’t just more beautiful, but that it is modern and functions better too.
Remodeling is the ideal time to replace or upgrade your pipes since the remodel will likely give easier access to your plumbing than you otherwise will have. If you are going to be tearing out walls and floors, you might as well do it then, instead of having to do it again in five years when one of your pipes cracks.
