Plumbing Checklist To Prepare for Your Next Bathroom Renovation


While upgrading your bathroom is not nearly as expensive or extensive as many other home improvement projects, there are many details to figure out before you can get started. Your favorite Tampa plumbing company recommends putting together a list of what you need to do and may have already done. It will make the remodeling process all that much easier and your life a lot less stressful!

How To Make Your Bathroom Remodel Painless

As obvious as it sounds, you need to first set a budget for this project. While you may have quite a bit of money lying around, it is never a good idea to commit to things like this on a whim or leave the costs open-ended.

Having a clear idea on paper of what you want to spend as well as where you want these funds allocated is absolutely crucial. If you are unsure of what to expect or include, you can always give our Tampa plumbers a call for advice. We have worked on many of these bathroom and kitchen remodeling jobs and can provide a rough estimate for all plumbing-related expenditures.

Unless you have the experience needed to tackle the remodel on your own, you are going to need to hire a contractor, and the amount you spend in labor costs is tied directly to the time it takes to complete the project. Do not go in with unrealistic expectations; small and simple jobs typically take a few days if nothing out of the ordinary arises, while large-scale projects may easily take a couple of weeks or more.

Whatever you do, do not buy any new appliances until you have first precisely measured the size of the bathroom, located the existing Tampa plumbing lines, and gauged the dimensions of the current fixtures.

With your dreams of a fully remodeled bath space on the horizon, the last thing you want to think about is getting the necessary paperwork in order. However, without a qualified building, electrical, and Tampa plumbing permit, that renovation will not be going anywhere anytime soon! The same goes for lead and asbestos testing, two additional requirements we recommend getting out of the way early.
