Watch Out – DIY Plumbing Mistakes Could Cost You Thousands!
As homeowners, many of us take a great deal of pride in being able to solve problems and make repairs to our homes. However, even though many of us are skilled in certain areas or aspects of home maintenance, repair, and remodeling, attempting a repair that is beyond our capabilities can have drastic consequences on our bank accounts.
Plumbing problems can be a cause of headaches, for example, to anyone attempting to repair or update their pipes, fixtures and basins. Of course, minor problems may not present much of a problem, but if you are attempting a major fix or a remodel, making the wrong choice can cost thousands of dollars to properly remedy.
Replacing or repairing a leaky faucet may be a task you are more than capable of completing on your own. But what if your plans call for relocating your sink or tub? This will require you to run new pipes through your floors and walls. One mistake here, and not only will you need to replace your pipes, but you may also need to replace your walls and floor, which can get expensive very quickly.
Leaky and improperly installed pipes can go unnoticed for a long time; that is, until it becomes painfully obvious that a problem leak has completely ruined your floor or walls. An experienced plumber can help you avoid these costly mistakes and keep your floor and walls as strong as the day they were built.
Drains can also be problematic for the do-it-yourselfer. If your drains are not properly installed you could be setting yourself up for a lifetime of clogs. Sure, these may be remedied with cheap chemical drain and clog cleaners, but these not only eat your clogs, they also destroy your pipes, meaning their life will be significantly reduced. A properly installed drain system, constructed and designed for your application by a competent and skilled plumber can keep your headaches to a minimum while keeping your drains flowing smoothly and effortlessly.
Utilizing a plumber’s services for these major repairs and renovations may seem to be the more expensive option to many homeowners. But once you consider the years of trouble free use you will get from a properly installed system, and the money saved on easily avoidable repairs, you will see how economical it can be to let a trained professional handle some of your home’s repair needs.
