If you are ready to refurbish the bathroom in your home or property, you may be eager to break out the tools and start straight away, but mistakes are made when serious considerations go neglected. Synergy Plumbing Services specialise in bathroom refurbishment and construction. Here we share some important points to consider.
You get what you pay for
At Synergy, we believe in competitive, cost-effective solutions, but where an item of bathroom equipment has a price that’s too good to be true – then there’s probably a reason for that. When buying bathroom accessories and suites, be sure to check the warranty and any product reviews that may be on the internet.
Don’t be tempted to pay a ‘fiend of a friend’ cash in hand to install your bathroom, because you might not know that their previous work is, or what the after care will be like should things go wrong.
Be structurally sound
Most regular homeowners are not able to evaluate the bathroom to make sure that it is structurally sound, but if the property is very old, or has previous damage from flooding or fire, it might not be in a fit state to be instantly refurbished, instead the bathroom may need some structural work to make sure it can bear load. The same principle applies to tiling and flooring. If you pick large or heavy tiles, you need to know that the surface will hold it up in the long term. If you have any doubts at all, contact us today.
Synergy have undertaken some great bathroom projects, including open plan bathrooms, but care needs to be taken within the design process to make sure that moisture and steam doesn’t become a problem. Many people find humidity becomes an issue when proper thought is not given to how the air must circulate.
A build-up of moisture is not only discomforting to live with, but will also create unhealthy mould and potentially rot surfaces such as wooden beams. Of course, we would always advise that any major property renovation is carried out by experienced professionals. We know how to get around many common problems, including, but not limited to those above. We serve many areas of the East Midlands, so if you live in Loughborough, Hathern, Shepshed, East Leake, Belton, Kegworth or Leicester, we may be able to help. Contact us today and we can arrange a visit to discuss your individual project.
