Common Bathroom Problems During a Remodel


When you are planning to remodel your bathroom, you must make sure that you address a number of plumbing issues.

The plumbing dominates the room, and you need to be sure that that plumbing is ready to take on the new form you have envisioned for the bathroom. When you cover the areas listed below, you will have a fully functional bathroom that makes your home the envy of the whole block.

Small Problems

When you are trying to remodel your bathroom, you need to make sure that you are checking on all the fittings in the room. You may not need to change any of the pipes, but the fittings may be old. Replacing the fittings during the project will help you avoid leaks in the future.

Also, you want to make sure that you are replacing all the fixtures in the room. You may not want to change these fixtures, but it is much easier to change them while you are in the middle of a large remodeling job. The same is true for your tub and shower. Replacing the tub and shower is much easier when you do it in the middle of your remodeling job.

Building Codes

The building codes for your area must be addressed by a professional plumber. This entire job should be done by a plumber, but it is wise to make sure that your plumber checks your bathroom for code violations.


You may be inspected at any time, and you want to make sure that that inspection goes well. Your plumber can help you handle these code issues in your home, and they will make sure that the problems are resolved before you try to sell the house. A code problem in your home could cause your home to not sell in the future.


Your choices during your bathroom remodeling job change the way your home operates. You must make sure you work with a plumber who will be able to handle code problems, moving your pipes and the replacement of your tub and shower.

These items make your home more valuable, your bathroom more beautiful and your home easier to sell.
