Plumbers are professionals: Hire them for the hard work!
Just as you visit a doctor when you have a bad cough, or take your car to a mechanic when something other than a flat tire has you stuck at home, so should you call a plumber when planning to remodel your bathroom. It may cost you a little more initially than trying to do it yourself, but in the long run you will be doing yourself a favor.
There are reasons why most municipalities require licenses for plumbers and electricians — both are nothing for novices to fool around with. Plumbing may look easy; but fixing that leak in the middle of the night because of a faulty fitting will be no laughing matter. And facing the wrath of the family when there is little pressure in the shower will not be fun.
When you balance the money spent against the expertise demonstrated, the licensed, trained plumber is the winner every time. Add to that the advice you will likely be given free of charge, based on countless similar situations and numerous years of experience, and you will be the winner when you listen and learn. An experienced, licensed plumber will also be likely to have access to products and materials that you might not find without his input; and he might even be willing to offer you some sort of trade discount on the purchase of upscale products.
At the very least, by employing a professional, you will gain the peace of mind of knowing that someone else has to do the ordering, the scheduling, the receiving, the installing and the cleanup. And the job will be guaranteed. And, per the terms of any contract you negotiate, you will have a warranty, a guarantee of performance and completion, and a time frame that you can hold to.
So, go ahead — plan your dream bathroom remodel. Envision it. Dare to use unusual materials and colors. Express yourself. Then consult a professional plumber to help to bring it to reality.
When you’re sitting in that jetted tub, or enjoying the luxury of a multi-head, oversized shower, you’ll be glad you called the plumber.
