Why A Plumber Is Crucial For Your Home

Why A Plumber Is Crucial For Your Home

Plumbers Aren’t Good For Just Toilets

When you think about plumbing, your mind might automatically move to the toilet. And while plumbers come in very handy when it comes to all things toilet-related, they have a lot of other talents as well. You might need a plumber in your home for more than just the toilet. Here are a few other reasons to make the call:

Leaky Pipes

If you have noticed a pipe leaking in the basement, a sink dripping in the bathroom, or walls with wet, water stains on them, you have plenty of reasons to call a plumber. A plumber can inspect your pipes and take care of the leaks to ensure you don’t get water damage (which can lead to dangerous mold growth). It’s a good idea to have your pipes inspected regularly, but when you notice a leak, you’ll want to have a plumber over.

Plumbing Relocation

If you are renovating your kitchen or bathroom and you want to relocate plumbing-related appliances around, call a plumber for help. They can tell you what can and cannot be done and how much it will cost. Their advice can help you figure out the grand scheme of the room. And then if you decide to move forward, they can help with the actual relocation as well.

Home Additions

Want to add a mother-in-law suite complete with a bathroom? Plumbers can put new plumbing into your home to accommodate your needs. Whether you want to add another half bath or a full shower and tub scheme, a plumber can help you from the planning stage all the way through to completion.


Just like an HVAC system, plumbing is something that should be inspected and maintained on a regular basis. Whether you are having an issue or not, you might want to have a plumber come in and take a look at your pipes every year or so. Preventative maintenance can save you money in the long run and a lot of headaches on damage.

Water Heater Services

Whether your water heater is leaking, needs repairs, or needs to be replaced, a plumber can help you with that. The water heater isn’t a unit you want to mess around with yourself. It takes a professional technician to handle it with the proper amount of care. If you notice any water heater issues, call a plumber for help right away.
