If you are preparing your budget for remodeling a kitchen, you need to avoid these 4 plumbing mistakes:

1. Non-Matching Pipes:

Non-matching pipes can quickly lead to leaking and corroding. This could cause all sorts of damage to your very new, expensive kitchen. In certain cases, different types of pipe can be connected, but ONLY by a skilled plumber. Connecting pipes should not become a do it yourself project!

2. Flooring up to the Cabinets:

You might be asking yourself, how does flooring affect my plumbing? Well, to save money, kitchen flooring is sometimes replaced only up to the cabinets, not under them. While this might save time and money right now, it can cause a huge hassle later on in your project. The problem comes from the fact that if you do not install the flooring from wall to wall, you might have a hard time removing the old dishwasher. Save yourself a headache and install your new flooring under all cabinets and dishwashers.

3. Sinks Oversight:

Sinks may not be the most exciting part of a new kitchen, but they are certainly one of the most important. Way too frequently, people choose their countertops and cabinets before even considering what kind of sink they would like. This can lead to a long list of problems including pipe placement and size complications that will cause the bill to pile up.

4. Not Talikng to Professionals:

One of the smartest things that you can do for your remodeling a kitchen is to consult with a professional plumber. It’s no surprise that it isn’t a good idea to take shortcuts or learn on the job when it comes to plumbing. Make sure that major plumbing problems don’t come back to haunt you, hire a skilled and licensed plumber as soon as you decide to start your kitchen remodel.
