    What Should I Consider before Upgrading My Shower?

    Bathroom Upgrades

    Plumbing upgrades get complicated fast, especially when it comes to upgrading your shower. Charleston homeowners are big on DIY, but these are the kinds of jobs an expert can really help you with. Invest in their skills to make sure your shower improvements go as planned.

    Here are just a few reasons to hire the pros for shower upgrades:

    • Plumbing mistakes get expensive fast. It’s not because of the cost of labor needed to fix them either. Water destroys building materials and leads to the growth of dangerous mold. When flooring walls and ceilings are damaged by leaks, it often means removing those materials and replacing them with new ones. In other words, if you make a mistake that causes a leak, you’re looking at a major investment to fix it compared to the price it would have cost to have a licensed plumber perform your shower upgrades.
    • Plumbers can anticipate problems based on your property’s characteristics. Few industry pros go through as much real-world training as professional plumbers. This is because the best practice in any given situation relies heavily upon the property needing work. If you hire a pro, he or she will already know the best methods for upgrading your shower based on the location of your bathroom and the overall design and placement of your home. Most importantly, a plumber will know about neighborhood issues capable of affecting your project. You aren’t guaranteed to know about those issues.
    • Your plumber will know about advancements in the industry. How many homeowners have upgraded a shower only to find later that more advanced fixtures and accessories missed their attention? You don’t want any reason to regret your repairs. An industry pro will know what the latest and best models are for comfortable, cutting edge features. They’ll also know the reputation of those devices before you install them. What could be worse than dropping a bundle on a new type of showerhead, for instance, only to find it rarely works?
