Have you been considering a remodel for your home? Maybe you want to make your dream bathroom a reality, or expand your kitchen for a growing family? Either way, a remodel can be a big undertaking that may leave you wondering where to begin. With this in mind, we have put together a list of the steps that are typically needed for a bathroom or kitchen remodel.

The First Step

The first step to a successful remodel is knowing what you want. It’s important to have a clear idea of what you want your space to look like once the renovation is complete. Remodel companies, professional designers or General Contractors can be a great asset for anyone who wants a change, but may be a little fuzzy on the specifics. While we at Instant Plumbing and Rooter are plumbing experts, we are not general contractors. However, we are always happy to work with whomever is in charge of your renovation, whether it is you or a third party. Any customer supplied materials such as bath tubs, and faucets should be decided on and ordered at this time. It is very important to have your materials before beginning the remodel. This will ensure that measurements are correct and everything fits together perfectly at the end stage.

Second Step

Once you know what you want your space to look like, the next step is to get pricing from each vendor you will require. Plumbing, electrical, and drywall can all be different services that may need to see the space in order to get an idea of what the entire project can cost. For an estimate on any plumbing needs, please call our office or email us through the Contact Us page. Once pricing and availability are confirmed, the next step is demolition. This is more or less the point of no return. Demolition can include everything from removing flooring and cabinetry to taking out and adding entire walls. In some cases, you will need a plumber to come out and cap off water lines before beginning demolition. If this is the case, we will go over this in our estimate and you will have already had this work completed.

Rough In Plumbing

After demolition comes the rough in plumbing. Rough in plumbing is the behind the scenes action. the pipes in the wall that aren’t seen at the end of the project. This can include things like new tub and shower valves for your bathroom or moving and extending water lines for the new placement of sinks. For many bathroom remodels, this will also include moving and updating your tub and shower drain(s). Updating to newer materials can ensure the longevity of your new shower.

It’s Almost Done!

Once the rough in plumbing has been completed, the next phase is for any drywall and flooring to be done. Installing new tile, back-splash, and countertops would all be done at this point. Once your walls and floors are completed it is time for trim. The plumbing trim is what you see on the exterior of the wall; the shower head, faucets, handles, sinks, and even toilets are all a part of the trim phase. Once the trim is completed, your new space is ready to use! All that is left is to sit back and enjoy your beautiful newly remodeled room!
