You’re pretty handy. In fact, you’ve done a fair amount of the remodeling and repairs on your Indianapolis home all by yourself. For the average homeowner, you have more DIY knowledge than most. But now you want to remodel your bathroom and install that beautiful soaker bathtub. You’re not as knowledgeable about plumbing as you are about drywall, and you’re trying to decide whether it’s time to call a plumbing pro. Well, let our team here at Indy Renovation give you a few reasons why that might be a good idea.
1. Avoid water damage.
Water damage from a leak can happen quickly. Not only are we talking about soggy drywall, flooring, or bathroom cabinets, but also the opportunity for molds to begin to grow and infest your home. Your best bet for avoiding water damage during or after a bathroom remodel is to hire out the plumbing work so that you can have peace of mind that you’re leak-free.
2. Get it done right the first time.
Often, when you tackle a DIY project that you haven’t done before, it may take a few tries, a few rounds of watching YouTube video tutorials and running back to the home-improvement store. However, when you hire a professional plumber, you can get it done right the first time and move on.
3. Save time and money.
You can quickly rack up a bunch of hours trying to figure out what you need to do to install a new soaker tub, purchasing all the equipment, and then actually doing the work. It can also cost quite a bit if you have to buy any special tools or supplies. Your time and money may be better spent hiring a professional plumber. Save that DIY energy for when the plumbing is done, and it’s time to hang your new light fixtures or tile the bathroom floor.
If you do decide to hire a plumber, make sure you choose someone who is licensed and reputable in the Indianapolis area (for more hiring tips, check out this blog). To find out more about our professional plumbing services here at Indy Renovation, contact us anytime at (317) 375-4464.
