Remodeling Plumbing

Remodeling plumbing starts out as a fun project because the first part of a plumbing remodel involves looking at pictures and picking out plumbing fixtures for your kitchen and bathroom. It also means picking out cabinets, countertops, lighting, and everything else that will make your new kitchen and bathroom look beautiful. It's also exciting to see everything arrive and imagine how everything will fall into place. However, a plumbing remodel can quickly turn into a disaster without the right plumber.

Remodeling Plumbing Disasters

Remodeling plumbing involves replacing everything in your kitchen or bathroom. This means turning off the water, dismantling the cabinets, taking away the appliances and essentially shutting down the two most important rooms in your house. An extensive plumbing remodel will take these two rooms out of commission for as long as the remodel takes. Can you imagine someone taking your entire kitchen apart and leaving it that way for a few weeks? It happens all of the time, especially when a contractor gets another, higher paying job. At Pipes & Plugs  Plumbing, not only do we have flat rate pricing for all of our customers, but we pay our technicians by the hour, so you don't have to worry about a 'rush' job, or technicians who 'disappear' for a while because they found a bigger project.

Why We Are Better

Remodeling plumbing is a project with many facets and faucets! When you remodel your kitchen or bath you need a plumbing professional - someone who knows the codes, can work with building officials, and get the job done in the most efficient manner. This is why it is important to call someone who has been in business for a while if you want your plumbing remodel to go as smoothly and quickly as possible. At Pipes & Plugs Plumbing, we have been remodeling kitchens and bathrooms for over 40 years combined. We know how to get permits, install all brands of plumbing fixtures, make drain and sewer repairs, and work with gas and electric. We will work with your interior designer or directly with you to make sure that your plumbing remodel turns out exactly as you wanted. All of our work is guaranteed in addition to the manufacturer's warranty and we will leave your house as clean as we found it!

Major Remodels

Remodeling plumbing for small bathroom and kitchen upgrades in your home or business is a project we can complete on our own. However, for a major remodel, there will be several trades (like carpenters and electricians) involved whose work will need to be coordinated. If the remodeling process is not coordinated properly, it can add weeks to the completion of a job. This is why we suggest hiring a general contractor for a major remodel. A general contractor is the professional builder who orchestrates the remodeling process from demolition to finish. At Pipes & Plugs Plumbing, we work with many general contractors and have a list to help you find the right one for your project.

Some types of plastic piping can cause ongoing maintenance problems and actually lower the value of your home at resale. In these cases, repiping is often the best option. We’re able to handle whole-house repiping and have become experts at doing these projects with as little disturbance to the home as possible. We can work with your contractor who will come in when we’re done to repair sheetrock and paint, so you’ll never know we were there.

Handicap Plumbing

Handicap Plumbing is mandatory in all places of business that provide public bathrooms. Most modern buildings have handicapped plumbing, but if you are doing a renovation on an old building, you may have to convert one of the bathrooms to comply with handicap plumbing accessibility codes. Handicap plumbing fixtures may also be necessary to install in your bathroom at home if you or someone else in your home requires the extra assistance in the bathroom that handicap plumbing fixtures can provide. Handicap plumbing fixtures are designed to provide anyone who needs it with extra help in the bathroom. They can also be helpful if you have arthritis or chronic back pain. These kinds of fixtures can help anyone move freely around the bathroom and live more independently.

Plumbing Code Violations

Plumbing code violations are initiated for many different reasons, and they can be issued for both commercial and residential properties as well. Plumbing code violations are generally issued on commercial buildings during routine inspections, building renovations, or if someone files a formal complaint on an older building. Residences can receive plumbing violations for renovations without a permit, illegal plumbing like drains, or if tenants or neighbors complain.

If you receive plumbing code violations, you haven't necessarily done anything wrong. Generally, plumbing code violations aren't intentional, many people are just not aware of the Plumbing Codes.
