Decor and architectural features can show your home’s age. However, nothing makes it feel as dated as plumbing fixtures that are out of step with modern designs. Nothing beats endless hot water, but an older water heater may not be able to keep up with a Mattoon, IL winter. Whether you’re investing in your own comfort or giving your home an update before it goes on the market, here’s how we can help you transform your home’s kitchen, bath, or laundry room with new fixtures.
What’s New in Fixtures?
Plumbing has been around for thousands of years. However, the technology surrounding it has changed dramatically since ancient Romans first piped running water into their homes. From low-flow shower heads and toilets that keep utility bills lower to new materials that stay effortlessly clean, new fixtures do more than just look good. They improve your home’s efficiency and functionality. Some of the most sought-after features in newer construction include:
- Single-handle kitchen and bathroom faucets
- Integrated full-body rainfall shower systems
- Drop-in sinks with detachable spray heads
- Touch-activated and foot-activated faucets
- Stand-alone tubs
- Tankless water heaters
All these and more can also blend beautifully with an older homes vintage beauty. You can choose from a wide range of finishes that complement your home’s interior design.
Why DIY Won’t Do for Plumbing Fixture Replacement
While some home upgrades work as DIY projects, plumbing fixture replacement is best left to the professionals. If your project has a seal or washer that isn’t seated right, you could face problems down the road. Even experienced do-it-yourselfers may see a faucet’s inner workings only a few times in decades. However, a professional plumber works with dozens of them a week.
For larger fixtures or those that combine plumbing with electricity or gas, professional installations are needed for safety. An energy-efficient new water heater brings you significant savings over the unit’s lifetime, but not if you have to spend money on costly repairs after an improper installation.
