Coronado Remodeling Plumbing
If you own home in beautiful Coronado, you are well aware of the late-1800s historical architecture. Tudor, Spanish Eclectic, Mediterranean and Craftsman stand shoulder to shoulder down many of the island’s wide streets.
These masterpieces struggle when their cast iron piping or ancient boiler heating systems break down. The multiple upgrades and expansions can also create problems as pipes and gas lines are jerry-rigged fit in yet another room. Umpteen plumbing configurations can wreak havoc on the reliability of your home’s overall piping infrastructure. Perry Plumbing’s expert plumbers have seen every plumbing issues in the oldest homes as well as the sophisticated new builds.
If you are having trouble with your plumbing system, know that you are far from alone. The good news is that new technology has made rectifying many plumbing issues much less expensive. Digging through slabs and yard hard-scaping is almost obsolete now. Clogs and leaks are found quickly with camera enable drain snakes. Water heaters and air conditioning units get fixed more than replaced.
The Top 3 Coronado Plumbing Concerns for Families on the Verge of a Remodel
1. Outdated plumbing materials:
Previously popular piping materials such as clay, cast-iron or galvanized steel, have been proven to not be as efficient at holding up over time as copper or PEX tubing. Before a total remodel, these older pipes should be replaced.
2. Previously done patch-ups:
If there is a piping concern, completely re-piping the home is not usually performed. It is only the problem-area that is fixed. Over time these pipes can experience corrosion, mineral buildup, leaks along joints and sediment run-off.
3. Preserving historical designations:
Many Coronado homes that have the notable distinction of having historic designations, which means they cannot be demolished, and must be preserved. This can limit the amount of remodeling done to the home, which can also affect the plumbing choices you make. In this case, the plumber needs to be aware of the limitations of what can or cannot be done.
Why It’s Best To Replace Your Plumbing When You Are Doing A Remodel
Fortunately, if you are already going to perform a remodeling job on your home, then performing a complete once-over of your plumbing is simple. If your walls will be opened up, it is cheaper and easier to replace the exposed pipes, then to wait and do it later. Plus, if you have upgraded fixtures in your bathroom and/or kitchen, then why risk exposing those rooms to future water damage from leaking older pipes? It is more cost-effective to take care of the pipes during the remodeling phase, rather than after. Today’s piping materials are incredibly strong, even flexible, reducing the number of vulnerable joints.
