For those of you with basements, how do you treat it? Is it a recreation room? Is it a place of storage? Is it a spot that plays the role of “the point of no return” with some of the things you just can’t seem to get rid of?
Many homeowners use the basement as another room to enjoy life. Some treat the basement as if it’s a small apartment. The one problem with some basements is that the plumbing services are actually upstairs on ground-floor level. Adding a basement bathroom not only assists in convenient living but also can add major value to your home.
Before venturing out into a major remodeling project, it’s best to know that, while basement bathroom plumbing can be done by a do-it-yourselfer, it’s best to hire a professional for custom craftsmanship and to secure quality service. If you do, however, choose to tackle the project yourself, here are a few tips to make things a little easier.
- Know the surroundings: Household wiring and pipes will get in the way of renovation. If you don’t know the whereabouts of major plumbing and electrical outlets are, you can find yourself in a lot of trouble, physically, mentally and financially. This is why we feel plumbing professional should tackle this job.
- Follow your budget: Before any project, you should do your research accordingly. Get estimates on what you want to do, and follow that budget. In fact, it’s not a bad idea to overcharge when forming your budget. The last thing you want is to miscalculate to where you are forced to go over your budget.
- Check your building codes: So many people try remodeling projects without first glancing at building codes. When it comes to plumbing and electricity, a building that falls under code can be a huge blow for a homeowner, as well as a business owner. Buildings that fail code inspections could mean more money spent, more hassle by code professionals and more unnecessary drama for you and your family.
