There are many jobs around your home that you can likely do yourself. If you have the right tools and experience, DIY projects can be more convenient and save money. But what about plumbing installation projects? Before you decide to conquer your installations on your own, there are some important things to consider:

  • Do you know that you have the right size pipes, connections and valves? Trying to use the wrong supplies can turn your installation into a messy repair project. The bigger problem is that you may not notice it right away causing leaks, corrosion, or burst pipes. Finding all of the right supplies can be stressful and time consuming. Professionals have a strong understanding of what materials and supplies may be needed and how to properly use them. They will likely have them on hand or can get them quickly so that your plumbing installation project can be done smoothly and efficiently.Plumbing Installation: DIY or Call a Pro?
  • Do you have the experience, tools, and manpower? Some plumbing installations require specialized tools, experience, and an extra hand. You may end up spending more money on purchasing the right tools than you save on calling a pro. Some jobs require more than one set of hands. For example, installing a toilet requires some heavy lifting. It can also go badly if you don’t know what you’re doing. Having a team of professionals will prevent a long list of possible problems from occurring.
  • Do you know if you have reliable products and warranties? When you choose professional plumbing installation, you can trust that your plumber will use reliable products. In many cases, there are warranties that are held effective only professionally installed.
