New Water Lines
Perhaps you’re planning to move your kitchen sink to a new area of the room. This often means that you’ll need to run new water lines for your hot and cold water. While shutting off the water and removing old pipes can seem easy, it’s often best to leave the job to the professionals. This same is true for installing new supply lines, since you’ll want to be absolutely sure that everything is connected properly. Our team can add new copper pipes that will provide the water pressure and temperature you need when washing dishes or preparing a meal.
Adding an Island Sink
One feature that many people want in their kitchen is an island. On top of that, some homeowners want a small sink in the island for washing vegetables for the garden or as a bar sink when company comes to visit. If you already have an island and want to add a sink, then our team can take care of adding the new water line. Every sink also needs a drain, and we’ll make sure that the island sink drain is connected properly to your sewer system.
Checking Your Sewer System
Speaking of your sewer system, it can be a good idea to have it inspected while you have the kitchen torn apart for remodeling. We can take a look at all of the drain lines, checking to see if there is anything blocking your wastewater from reaching the sewer pipe and emptying into the city’s sewer line. If any problems are found, then we can take care of them before new drains are installed, helping you avoid bigger issues in the future.
Venting Your New Drain Lines
Whenever a new drain line is installed in a kitchen, it needs to be properly vented so that sewer gases don’t find their way into your home. If you’re going to be removing walls and other structural elements, then it might prove more difficult to run vent lines from the kitchen, up into the attic, and through the roof. There are options such as air admittance valves (AAVs) that can take care of venting, and our team knows how to incorporate them when traditional vent lines aren’t possible.
