STYLE, FUNCTION OR BOTH, FOR YOUR NEW SARASOTA BATHROOM REMODEL?
Are your plans for 2014 to give your bathroom a new look or an update?
First things first. Set a budget on how much you can spend. This will determine everything.
If your house has cast iron piping below the concrete slab, and you are wanting to replace your original toilet, you should consider investing the money into having your main drain looked at with a camera, by calling a Sarasota kitchen plumber.
By running the camera, your professional plumber can tell you what the condition of your waste line is and whether or not the new 1.6 gallon flush toilet will flush all the through your sewer line or cause continual stoppages.
You may not want to hear your lines are rusted, corroded and scaled, but it is better to know now, then when you get your bathroom all finished and the toilet stops up all the time.
It is usually more cost effective to do any waste piping under the slab, if needed, before the finished floor and cabinets are installed.
Now you can set a budget with no Sarasota kitchen plumbing suprises.
The next part is fun. Go to your local plumbing supply showrooms and see what is available. The sales professional can guide you through all the cool looking stuff from modern, contemporary, rustic, or just plain far-out. The sky is the limit, remember your 30 year old bathroom? Pick something you like. It may be another 30 years before you go though this again.
When choosing plumbing fixtures and valves, pick quality name brands. This insures that down the road your Plumber in Sarasota will have the parts on his truck or will have access to them right away, if the product does have a problem down the road.
You should consult with a professional plumber to make sure what you are doing is to code and find out if any permits are necessary.
If you choose to hire a Sarasota Kitchen Plumber, meet with him and see if he has your best interest at heart.
