Fixture Installation, Repair, or Replacement

Dallas • Ft. Worth Fixture Installation and Repair Plumbers

The installation or repair of bathroom and kitchen fixtures is often complicated by what you don’t see behind walls or beneath the floor. As a result, homeowners often make the mistake of assuming that, with a little help from a “do-it-yourself” book or website and a can-do attitude, they can repair or install home fixtures. In an effort to save money, homeowners overlook the fact that certified, bonded and insured plumbers not only have the training and knowledge needed to do a job right but they’ve also booked hours of experience in repairing and installing bathroom and kitchen fixtures.

Unexpected Problems when Installing Fixtures

When installing bathroom sinks, toilets, or showers, problems often arise when homeowners need to open part of a wall or enter the subflooring or area under the shower pan. Part of the problem is due to the fact that, while existing piping or valves may appear ready to disconnect and reconnect, piping may need to be reconfigured to accommodate the proportions of a fixture. If hookups are not properly connected, leaks may occur, causing substantial damage.

Additionally, opening a wall may present certain risks with regard to electrical wiring. Especially in older homes, it may be difficult to determine where electrical wiring snakes up through the subfloor and through walls.

In the case of floors, working around floor joists or supports can be especially challenging when old, heavy porcelain bathtubs or piping must be removed. Failure to properly balance or place shower pans or new bathtubs can lead to cracking, leaks, and other problems.

Installing Stoves and Dryers – Working with Gas

Working with gas can be extremely risky if a homeowner doesn’t have proper knowledge, tools, and experience. While turning the gas to your home off or on may be relatively straightforward, installing a stove or dryer requires knowledge of how to properly secure gas lines to prevent leaks or other problems. Once gas lines are connected, proper testing should be undertaken to ensure there are no leaks or risk or gas collecting in certain spaces that present a risk for explosion.

Equally important, in some cases, a permit may need to be required if you are doing remodeling or adding new space in your home. In some cases, your homeowner’s insurance coverage may be null and void if you don’t pull a permit, have the finished work inspected, and adhere to existing codes and regulations.
