PLUMBING ISSUES TO WATCH OUT FOR WHEN DOING HOME RENOVATION IN NEWMARKET

Plumbing issues are essential to think about when doing a home renovation in Newmarket. We have come up with a few problems that you should be aware of when renovating.

As experienced contractors, we can tell you with confidence that no kitchen or bathroom renovation in Newmarket is complete without plumbing updates. Here at Atera Construction and Home Renovation, we know that people have tried to undertake DIY renovation projects only to face plumbing challenges to which they had no solutions. When done right, plumbing renovation can be less expensive in the long run. The two main areas that require the most attention are the kitchen and bathroom.

1. Kitchen Renovations

Atera Construction and Home Renovation looks at the kitchen renovation process as a whole. Many old homes tend to also have old kitchens; however, we can help fix the kitchen with repairs and upgrades. As part of the renovation process, we make sure that the dishwashers, sinks, faucets and hot water dispensers are all running efficiently and effectively. After renovating your kitchen, you may consider renovating your bathrooms as well. Atera Construction and Home Renovation offers bathroom renovations as well.

We understand that you have requirements and budgets to uphold. Our company will gladly sit down and make sure that the renovation process is well within your budget and desired taste. We always seek to make the costs affordable for you even when working with your chosen contractors to source materials or by contacting suppliers directly.

Plumbing Issues to Watch Out For When Renovating an Old Home

Since renovating kitchens and bathrooms are complex projects, there are some issues that we encounter during the renovation process. Let’s have a look at some issues that may arise:

Galvanized Pipes

Old homes tend to have galvanized pipes. When they were being installed, they did not propose any issues; however, over time, these pipes cause problems. Galvanized pipes tend to corrode and rust which ultimately can make them prone to getting clogged. To make sure that you have a constant flow of water, you might have to look into replacing the entire plumbing next time you do a home renovation in Newmarket.

Broken Sewer Lines

Sewer lines tend to be forgotten about when renovating. Sewer lines are your responsibility as a homeowner, and so you need to check them from time to time. Many old homes tend to have pipes that need replacing. Some of the reasons for replacing sewer lines can include:  blockage due to root intrusion; pipe crushing or breaking; and asbestos in the pipes. Don’t forget to check the sewer lines when you renovate.

Invisible leaks

Talk about large water bills; invisible water leaks can be quite costly. In Canada, homeowners are responsible for any issues with the piping from the water meter to their property line. if you ever suspect a leak, you should call a professional plumber(s) to inspect your piping. They can help you understand where the issue might be and also avoid the leakage from inflicting any further damage to your home.

Old Plumbing fixtures

These fixtures tend to suffer from the effects of wear and tear due to prolonged use. It’s no surprise that they tend to be inefficient and prone to leaks. If possible, when doing a home renovation in Newmarket, we advise our clients to replace their old fixtures. This somewhat overlooked problem can do wonders for water conversation in your home.

Protect your Home

Lastly, always protect your home before doing any plumbing renovations. Leaks during the renovation process can leave a considerable dent. An excessive leak can ruin essential aspects of the house such as the paneling or plasterwork. We, at Atera Construction and Home Renovation always take great care when renovating your home to make sure no long-lasting damage is done.
