21 May Should you Replace Water Pipes During a Renovation?
We all want our dream home. However, buying a house can have unexpected costs. They require constant maintenance, and eventually major renovations are required. Let us explain whether or not you should replace or repair your water pipes during a renovation:
In a home renovation, there are three tiers based on timeframe, budget, and difficulty.
The pipes in our home and leak if they’re old or faulty. They are like the veins in our bodies, and if they need fixing, they need fixing. The following are signs that you should replace your pipes.
– The water pressure is low
– You have water that smells or has a colour to it
– Your water bills have increased
– The pipes make a noise
During the renovation, make sure someone goes out to check that the pressure is at the right level. The renovation may call for a plumber who can fix or replace your pipes, but it will depend on how much money you have set aside for plumbing in the project if something were to go wrong or a leak discovered.
