Replace Your Plumbing During Your Bathroom Remodeling Project

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Remodeling a bathroom is an excellent way to add an upgrade to your home. With improved lighting, fixtures, and décor, you can make the bathroom a much more pleasant and welcoming place.

A bathroom remodel is about more than cosmetic appearances. It involves work with plumbing fixtures that requires expert work from professionals. When you want expert quality bathroom remodeling in Orlando, FL, call up Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI). We offer a range of complete remodeling services, from adding new showers, tubs, toilets, and faucets to doing full plumbing replacements.

You may wonder exactly why you would want to include plumbing replacement on your “to do” list for a bathroom remodel. That list is already long enough. But you should give serious consideration to having plumbing replacement as part of bathroom remodeling, as we’ll explain.

Reasons to have plumbing replacement during a remodel

  • It’s much easier to do: During a bathroom remodeling job, the pipes will be exposed in order for new fixtures and cabinets to go in. This makes the remodel an ideal time to replace the pipes, since it takes care of the most arduous step involved in re-piping: reaching the pipes in the first place.
  • It makes remodeling more flexible: If you decide on a complete replacement of the pipes during a remodeling, it gives the designer much more space to work. Now the pipes can be redone in order to fit with designs, which frees up the remodeler to make bigger and more substantial changes. You can get a better remodel with pipe replacement as part of it.
  • Your plumbing is old: This won’t apply to every remodel, but chances are high that if you want to remodel your bathroom, you have an older home—and that can mean out-of-date plumbing. If you have old galvanized steel pipes, which are prone to corrosion, you should definitely have them replaced. However, you can also change copper pipes for more flexible CPVC and PEX pipes.

With these upgrades, you can expect fewer clogs and leaks in the future, making your bathroom remodel one that will keep your happy for many years.

3 Reasons People Opt for Bathroom Remodeling

Monday, November 25th, 2013

Is it time to remodel your bathroom? And we don’t mean a cosmetic remodeling: new cabinets, shower curtains, drapes, and towel holders. We mean a full remodeling of your bathroom’s plumbing, water heater, sink, faucets, shower fixtures, etc. It sounds like an immense task—and it does involve a great amount of precision labor—but you will find it much easier with a professional remodeling company handling the bulk of the work. Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. can guide you through the process, step by step, starting with fixture and faucet selection. Contact us today to start your Orlando, FL bathroom remodeling.

Here are three reasons people decide to have a full bathroom remodel done:

  1. Greater water efficiency: Low-flow water faucets and sinks can provide tremendous savings on water bills. According to studies by the EPA, low-flow faucets can reduce a sink’s water flow by 30% or more, going from 2.2 gallons per minute to 1.5 gallons per minute. The average family can save 700 gallons of water per year, which is equal to the water used in 40 showers. The lower water flow will also reduce the stress on water heaters. You can also have a low-flow toilet installed to increase the savings.
  2. Upgrade outdated, worn down plumbing: For people living in an older house, the plumbing in the bathroom might be made from outdated material that is coming near the end of its service life. A full repiping of old corroded pipes will give less trouble from leaking and provide an extended life for all the plumbing.
  3. Change the layout: Altering the layout of the bathroom allows the installation of a new shower or bathtub. It can also supply more space.

When you make the choice to remodel your bathroom, you need to speak to a professional remodeler to discuss your priorities. This way, the remodeler will know where to focus his or her efforts. Are you primarily interested in water savings? Do you want to benefit from a new water jet bathtub? The professional will weigh all these considerations and come up with a design that fits your needs.

At Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc., we go to great lengths to work with you coming up with a design for your bathroom remodel that will live up to the high standards you set. We will involve you in the process at every step, so you will see that we’re creating the bathroom you always wanted.
