If you’ve been thinking about adding on to your home, then you’re likely thinking about the rooms that you can create, the new living space you’ll have, and how it will benefit everyone in your family. However, have you also thought about the new plumbing that your addition will need? If you’re adding another bathroom or you’re expanding your kitchen, then you’re going to need new pipes. At Gladiator Repipe in San Jose, we can install new copper piping in no time at all!
Connecting to Old Pipes
When building on to your home, your goal is likely to make the house feel like new, as well up the property’s resale value. The new bathroom, kitchen, or whichever room you’re building will be connected to the older part of the house, which means that the new plumbing will be connected to old pipes. If you have galvanized pipes in your home, then it can be a good idea to replace them with new copper pipes, which can then be attached to the new copper plumbing in your addition. It is possible to connect copper to galvanized, but why not update all of your plumbing while you’re working on the house?
Proper Water Pressure and Temperature
Once your new addition is complete, you want everything in it to function like it should. When it comes to sinks, showers, and tubs, water pressure and temperature are two key factors. You want to enjoy your nice new shower or big soaker tub, but if you can’t get enough pressure or hot water, that enjoyment can quickly go down the drain. With new copper piping, pressure and temperature should be maintained throughout the house, which will make you happy every time you turn on the tap.
Leave it to the Professionals
You might be tackling some, if not all, of your home remodeling. It can be a great way to save on construction costs, but two problem areas that many homeowners run into are plumbing and electrical. You need to be sure that you meet certain building and municipal codes, which means you may not be able to do your plumbing on your own. You want to be sure it’s done right, which is why it’s best to leave the job to the professionals. At Gladiator, we can handle copper repiping jobs of any size, and we’ll work quickly and diligently to get done and out of your way, so that you can complete your new addition.
