Kitchen and bathroom renovations are extremely popular. They can add a great deal of value to your home, but they’re a lot of work and require a great deal of expertise. If you want to redo your bathroom or kitchen you’ll need to hire a certified plumber to ensure everything is done properly.

Here are all the reasons why you should hire a plumber for your next renovation, and how they can help you make your kitchen and bathroom refurbishments are a success.

Skills and Experience

Simply put, plumbers know what they’re doing. Renovation plumbing isn’t just something you can go online and learn how to do in a day. It takes a lot of time to master the craft and learn how to do things properly, and safely.

Certified plumbers have gone through extensive training, both in the classroom and on the job. They can survey a job and quickly determine the best way to achieve your desired results.

Plumbing isn’t just about finding a way to make it work. When performing kitchen and washroom renovations, you want to make sure your plumbing system is running in an efficient, cost-effective manner. A plumber will not only make sure everything works the way you want it to, but they’ll also build a system that works in the best way possible.

Plumbers can also offer advice. You may be dealing with your first bathroom renovation, but a plumber will have performed hundreds, maybe even thousands of renovations. They can provide valuable information to help your system work better and even bring your bathroom renovation cost down.

Kitchen and bathroom renovations are a big undertaking. By bringing in an expert you’ll have access to a wealth of skills and experience that can help the job go much smoother.

By using a plumber, you know your kitchen, bathroom, and shower renovations are finished safely.


If a plumbing system is installed incorrectly it can lead to some major problems and safety concerns.

Even a leaky pipe can lead to mould and mildew, which can be detrimental to you and your family’s health. And of course, a major leak or a burst pipe can cause a massive flood, resulting in structural damage, expensive repairs, and a whole lot of stress and headaches.

A certified plumber knows how to get things done right so you can be sure that you don’t have to deal with any of these issues. By using a plumber, you know your kitchen, bathroom, and shower renovations are finished safely.

Proper Tools

Proper renovation plumbing isn’t just about having the right knowledge and experience. It’s also about having the right tools for the job.

Without the proper equipment, shortcuts and compromises have to be made. This might be alright in the short term, but over time you’ll likely find yourself with some big issues that could be expensive to fix.

As the plumbing industry grows and changes, so do the tools that plumbers use. Of course, you could buy the equipment yourself, but that will cost a lot of money. If you’re not an experienced plumber you may not even know what tools you’ll need. You might buy the wrong tools, or realize halfway through the job that you’re missing something you need.

By hiring a certified plumber, you know you’ll have all the tools you’ll need right from the start. This will save you valuable time, and ensure that every component of the job is completed the right way.

Project Management

Anyone who’s gone through a kitchen or bathroom remodel knows it can take a lot of time. You may set out a timeline at the beginning of the project, but the moment you run into even the smallest problem that timeline gets thrown out the window. Before you know it, your renovation has been going on for months and is preventing you from truly enjoying your home.

Certified plumbers are great project managers. They’re experts at keeping projects on schedule, managing tradespeople, and quickly finding solutions to problems. This ensures there aren’t any delays and makes it much more likely that your project will be completed on time.

So, if staying on schedule and getting the job done in a timely manner is important to you then you should definitely hire a certified plumber.

Having a plumber means this is just one less thing you have to worry about.


Every municipality has building permits that need to be followed during a renovation. Even a small bathroom renovation must adhere to local codes. Throughout the project, the work that is being done will need to be inspected before moving on to the next phase of the renovation. As the homeowner, it’s up to you to ensure that all renovations are legal.

When it comes to plumbing, inspectors will be looking to make sure everything has been installed properly and safely. This means inspecting all fixtures, lines, traps, vents, and pretty much all the work that went into the renovation.

When you hire a certified plumber, not only will they ensure that all the work they do is up to code, they’ll also look after notifying inspectors throughout the job and walking them through the work that has been done. If you’re unfamiliar with the inspection process this can be a huge hassle and cause major delays. Having a plumber means this is just one less thing you have to worry about.

You should also be aware that if you plan to sell your house potential buyers will want to know about any work that was done on the house and whether it is up to code. By using a certified plumber people will be much more confident that the work was done properly.

Peace of Mind

When you use a certified plumber, you can rest assured that your kitchen or bathroom renovation is done properly, safely, and to code. Renovations can be stressful, so not having to worry about these sorts of things can make the process much easier.

At the same time, performing kitchen and bathroom upgrades should be fun. By personalizing and updating various parts of your home, not only are you adding to the house’s value, but you’re also making it your own. You're going to enjoy these upgrades for years to come, and it can be exciting watching the process unfold.

Don’t ruin the experience by taking everything on yourself. By hiring a certified plumber you’ll have the peace of mind that everything is being done properly so you can actually enjoy the process.

Ongoing Customer Service

Even when you’re renovation is over, it’s not really over. Quite often issues will come up after the work is done that’s you’ll have to take care of.

When you hire a certified plumber, you now know who to go to with for advice and any questions you might have once the job is finished. You also have someone to call if anything goes wrong.

Most plumbing companies offer service guarantees for just this reason. So, even if for some reason you do run into any problems your plumber will come out and quickly take of it for you. This means that not only do you not have to worry about things getting done right while the job is taking place, you also don’t have to worry about anything going wrong after it’s finished.
