Kitchen Remodel Plumbing Tips
Re-route your plumbing
If you are planning a complete remodel of your kitchen and moving things around, the plumbing will have to move along with it. Hire only professionals for this critical task and check that off your worry list.
Upgrade your plumbing
If your kitchen is older, you probably have iron pipes, which could be aging and problematic. Since your kitchen is undergoing a major renovation, now is the time to think about upgrading to modern, long-lasting PEX or copper to improve the efficiency and longevity of your new kitchen. You don’t want to get things finished and then experience problems because your new kitchen is built on a network of old pipes.
Add shut-off valves
Adding shut-off valves to appliances like your sink, dishwasher, and refrigerator will give you added control and peace of mind when you need to respond quickly to a problem or leak. Shut-off valves can improve the value of your kitchen while also adding ultimate convenience.
Install new plumbing
If you have always dreamt of a dishwasher or disposal, during your kitchen remodel is the time to add one. You will need a professional plumber to install the water lines, pipes, and appliances, and Meticulous Plumbing does it all.
Fancy new sink and faucet
