When it comes to your plumbing, one of the trickiest obstacles to overcome is knowing where everything is behind your walls. No one wants to start a home improvement project only to accidentally strike a pipe you didn’t know was there halfway through. But unless you have x-ray vision, how do you know where everything is?
A Picture Is Worth More than 1,000 Words
At Repiping Professionals, we suggest that when you schedule a repiping service with us, you plan to take pictures of all your plumbing. That way, you can have a record of all the piping configurations and installation layout.
Your plumbing is a rigid system. That means if you want to make renovations or changes—knock out a wall, mount the TV, add a bar, whatever you want—you will need to adapt to where your pipes are. When you take a picture of your new plumbing installation, you will be able to know exactly where your pipes are without having to rely on your memory.
Can’t a contractor just figure out where my plumbing is?
Sure, but why not make his or her job a little easier? Plus, why waste time trying to determine where things are when you can already have that knowledge ready? When it comes to home renovations, efficiency and accuracy is the name of the game. Keeping records that will make the process as smooth as possible is in the best interest of everyone, especially the homeowner (since, if things don’t go smoothly, you will be the one that has to deal with the huge costs).
Our Los Angeles repiping experts at Repiping Professionals can inform you on the best way to photograph your newly installed plumbing to ensure that your records are foolproof.
