Before You DIY: Bathroom Remodeling Considerations

HomeBlogBefore You DIY: Bathroom Remodeling Considerations

If you’re ready to remodel one or more bathrooms in your home, you want to make sure that you have all of the equipment and the expertise to accomplish the goal. While it can be lots of fun to tear everything out and look at a blank slate, so to speak, there can also be some unexpected pitfalls that come with a DIY renovation. Consider these topics before you head into bathroom remodeling on your own:

1.  Plumbing – Many people don’t think about the plumbing requirements when they are taking out a sink, tub, or toilet. Correctly installing bathroom plumbing takes some practice and knowledge of the trade. Even if you think it will be a simple swap, you can run into plumbing issues that require a professional.

2.  Electrical – The bathroom is one of the few rooms in a home where water and electricity are in close quarters. Not only can missing electrical details create a safety hazard, but the potential for even greater problems occurs when the plumbing and electrical are both being worked on in the same space. This is another task that requires a professional.

3.  Water Damage – Many homeowners don’t realize that their bathroom may have sustained water damage at some point. When the bathroom remodeling process starts, it can lead to an unexpected discovery and even more time and money for the correct fix. Professional bathroom remodeling contractors will know the best practices for dealing with water damage in your bathroom.
