Kitchen Remodels Should Include Your Plumber

Thinking of remodeling your kitchen? It looks so easy on the DIY home remodeling shows and seems like nothing more than a quick trip to a big box store for a few supplies after watching a couple of YouTube videos. Right? Wrong. You can actually spend a lot more hiring a professional to correct mistakes than you would have if you’d gone with a skilled craftsman in the first place. A major kitchen remodel is a complex project that can span weeks, even months and a good percentage of the work involves plumbing. Before you pick up that sledgehammer, give Atlas Butler a call to discuss the project and learn how our team of licensed plumbers can help.

Here are a few reasons why it makes sense to get a licensed plumber involved in your kitchen remodel:

  1. Plumbers can help you with appliance placement. A plumber can go into your kitchen and see where the water lines are. That way, they can advise you on where to put your refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, or that big new island with a double sink. Don’t rely solely on aesthetics.
  2. Plumbers know the local building codes. They can also obtain any necessary permits you may not be aware that you need for your remodeling project.
  3. Plumbers can re-route and upgrade existing lines. This is helpful, especially if you have an older house. It’s much better to know beforehand what needs to be done than be faced with an expensive update or repair after the fact. Those types of repairs often require tearing into your brand-new walls or backsplash.
  4. Plumbers can recommend and install your new appliances. Plumbers keep abreast of the latest trends in energy-efficient appliances and can make suggestions based on your family size, lifestyle, design preferences, etc. They can also install the new appliances and make sure they are working properly.
