Should You Replace Your Pipes During a Remodel?

Renovating your home can provide a lot of benefits. Not only can it raise the value of your home, but it can make your living space comfortable and inviting. Unfortunately, many homeowners invest large sums of money into remodeling their kitchen or bath, without taking the opportunity to freshen up their outdated pipes and plumbing fixtures. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, PA, we help local home and business owners find ways to improve their plumbing system for added convenience and long term savings. Are you unsure if you should budget a pipe repair or replacement during your next home improvement project? Here is some helpful information that can help you make a decision that works best for your unique situation.

What Condition Are Your Pipes In?

The first step is to determine what kind of condition your pipes are in. If youve recently replaced old pipes, or your home was built a few years ago, then it probably isnt time for a replacement yet. However, if its been more than ten years since youve had a professional plumber look at your pipes, a replacement or upgrade may be worth considering. If youve noticed signs of corrosion, leaks or other plumbing problems, then a renovation provides the perfect chance to correct the issue when reconstruction is already taking place. Otherwise, you might end up redoing your renovation because of a plumbing emergency that could have been fixed during the initial project.

Are Your New Fixtures Compatible with Your Current Plumbing System?

Another reason to replace pipes during a remodel is when the new plumbing fixture is no longer compatible with your old pipes. This can happen when installing a new shower faucet or sink. These replacements are normally isolated, simple and necessary to complete your desired remodel. Under these circumstances, most homeowners will either choose a fixture thats compatible with the existing materials, or will go ahead and update their system to accommodate their goals.

Will You Soon List the Property for Sale?

Is the bathroom or kitchen remodel being performed in an investment property? Are you thinking about putting your familys home on the market within the next few years? If so, then upgrading outdated pipes is a good idea. Buyers will appreciate having new pipes and fresh plumbing in the areas where they need it most.
