Let’s face it — we’ve all been spending a lot more time at home due to COVID-19, and during that time, our plumbing has gotten a lot more use. You’re cooking at home more, which means you’re doing more dishes, and the showers and washing machine are getting more use as well. Perhaps, during all this, you’ve decided that it’s time to update your kitchen, your bathroom, or your laundry room (or maybe all three). If so, then let Gladiator Repipe in San Jose provide the perfect copper plumbing during your fall remodel project.
Get Rid of Old Pipes
As you’ve been washing dishes, your clothes, or yourself this summer, you may have noticed that your water pressure isn’t what it used to be. It can take longer to get things clean when there isn’t adequate pressure, and this can be due to leaks or buildup in your old pipes. Depending on when your home was built, you might have galvanized plumbing that’s been there for 50+ years. It could be high time to replace your pipes, and copper repiping can be the way to go.
Improved Pressure and Temperature
The two main benefits of new copper pipes are improved water pressure and water temperature. Copper doesn’t allow for buildup like old lead or galvanized pipes do, and copper is less prone to leaks and breaks. This means that you’re not losing pressure as water moves through your plumbing. It’s also much better at maintaining temperature as water moves through the house, meaning that when you turn on the hot water tap in the kitchen sink or the bathtub, you get the hot water you need in less time.
As you’re remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, it can be extremely beneficial to add new copper supply lines for your hot and cold water taps. You’ll have the pressure and temperature you need every time you wash dishes or take a bath.
One thing that every homeowner has in mind when they remodel a part of their home is the desire never to have to update that room again, at least for as long as they live in the house. The same can be true of your plumbing — once you replace the old pipes with new ones, you don’t want to have to worry about them for at least the next 10 to 20 years. With copper repiping, you’ll have plumbing that lasts for decades, and when it’s installed by our expert team, you shouldn’t have to worry about a thing for a very long time.
It’s quite likely that the copper plumbing will still be in great shape whenever you decide to sell your home. On top of the updates you’ve made to your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room with the renovations, you’ll also be able to tell a prospective buyer that the pipes are copper and should be reliable for many more years to come.
