Your house search has come down to two different properties. And while one is in need of several significant plumbing repairs, it is also the home that is located close to the school where you want your children to attend. The current owner has offered to hire a licensed contractor to take care of the plumbing repairs that are needed, and you are tempted. Your husband and the realtor insist, however, that these repairs have to be completed and pass inspection before any contracts are signed. Finding the right contractor who can complete these jobs on time might be a challenge, but you agree with your husband and the real estate agent that if the plumbing repairs are not completed you will not be buying it, no matter what school district is included.
Clogged Drains and Unsatisfactory Plumbing Services Can Bring Down the Value of a Home
Knowing that you have a home with new plumbing is a major comfort. Whether you are looking to sell your property or stay in it for many years, efficient plumbing is a major advantage. And while some people think that there are some plumbing problems that they can fix themselves, the fact of the matter is that even the smallest projects should involve a licensed plumber if you want to make sure that the work will add value to your home.
In addition to adding value to your home, the latest plumbing fixtures and installations can also save money on monthly water bills. Finding the right plumber who can help explain the latest offerings and the most efficient fixtures can help you use less water and eliminate unnecessary leaks and other wastes.
Indoor plumbing dates back as far as 2500 B.C., but the industry continues to evolve. From low flush toilets to water heaters that use less energy, the latest plumbing offerings make newer homes more attractive to buyers. Knowing, for instance, that a home has new plumbing and is certified to have limited leaks can make the property more valuable and economical.
Unfortunately, statistics show that 10% of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons of water or more every single day. As a result, it should come as no surprise that taking the time to fix easily corrected household water leaks can save a home owner as much as 10% on monthly water bills. Whether you are looking at a new home or you have been in your home for years, it is important to make sure that the plumbing is correctly installed and is running as efficiently as possible.
