Doing a kitchen or bathroom remodel is a great way to add value to your home. It is also the perfect time to consider pipe replacement, particularly if you have an older home. One of the largest expenses of pipe replacement is repairing walls, floors, and/or ceilings that have been compromised in order to reach the pipes. If you already have plans to replace any of these, doing pipe replacement at the same time will save you from dealing with it down the road.
There isn’t any type of pipe material that doesn’t break down over time. It is not uncommon for an older home to eventually need a full-house pipe replacement. Taking a proactive position and taking care of it when remodeling not only saves money, but can also avoid costly water damage issues later. At the very least, you should have the pipes thoroughly inspected at this time to ascertain if there are already issues going on and to see what condition they are in. It can be tempting to not want to add to your project budget by doing pipe replacement, but it is the better choice in the long run.
