Can I add another sink in my master bath?

Expanding the master bathroom will give you the space you’ve been dreaming about and it almost always increases the value of your home! However, adding another sink isn’t necessarily as easy as some DIYers may envision. It’s best to have a licensed plumber help with this process in case the pipes need to be reorganized or replaced.


Is it difficult to add a bathtub?

When upgrading bathrooms, many homeowners opt to transform their bathroom layout to include a bathtub or soaking tub. Prior to remodeling, a plumber will assess the bathroom layout and internal plumbing to know whether a tub will fit and if the drainage system is equipped to handle the amount of water. Next, the plumber will also evaluate the water heater to make sure it can accommodate the number of gallons the tub holds. Adding in a bathtub is a more complex process because the expansion involves plumbing, tiling, and contracting expertise.


How do I fix my bathroom water pressure?

Say goodbye to showers that don’t have adequate water pressure. Low water pressure isn’t just the product of an old home, it’s an opportunity to check on the internal plumbing of your bathroom. It may be a fairly simple solution that isn’t going to break the bank, or it could be the symptom of a much larger problem. A professional plumber will be able to assess the water pressure and provide a solution.


Do my bathroom pipes need to be updated?

A bathroom renovation is the perfect time to assess the foundation of your bathroom and the state of the plumbing. Take the opportunity while the pipes are exposed to see if they should be replaced to eliminate the possibility of leaks in the future. Moreover, the plumbing should be updated to support the water flow with the addition of showerheads, body sprays, and/or a bathtub.


How can I conserve water in my bathroom?

According to the EPA, a leaky toilet can waste over 200 gallons of water per day. During your bathroom remodel, don’t just fix the leaks. Instead, replace faucets and toilets for ones that reduce water usage–your utility bill will be lower, too!
