Plumber South YarraTo help in managing this momentous task (and all the surprises that may come along with it), the plumbing company has rounded up some of their tried and tested tips.

  • Create a plan for dealing with the disruptive nature of renovation tasks for the bathroom or kitchen if you do not intend to temporarily move out and make way for the project. Determine where you will shower and cook while these rooms are all a mess. Perhaps you can set up an outdoor shower, or cookoff of a hot plate or the barbie to get through the necessary daily activities of cooking, eating and bathing.
  • Hire a good plumber or gas master for tasks that cover pipes. You can’t mess with these components because a misstep with a gas appliance or pipe can lead to fatal consequences.
  • If you wish to effectively stick to your budget, conduct your research on building products’ prices online. Doing this will help you avoid any hidden costs, and at the same time, you’ll be able to determine which items you actually can spend more money on. Do you want those fancy imported taps, or a new solar-powered heating system? You can work all these into the renovation budget better if you know the prices of all your building needs as well as those special arrangements that will allow you to cut costs.
  • Save a bit more money by determining which items you can salvage and repurpose for the renovation project, as well as green solutions available on the market such as low flow showerheads and taps.
  • Over-order products. This may seem to be counterproductive in terms of keeping expenses low during renovation, but in the long run, you may actually end up saving money by ordering more than the specific amount of materials needed. You can use the excesses for future repairs.
  • Don’t obsess over the schedule; make your expectations realistic because it’s very common for home renovation projects to take longer than the initial projection of completion.

Always great service and an excellent job. They get to the heart of difficult issues - recently fixed a very complex roof and guttering issue that our builder wasn't able to.  Friendly, reliable. 100% recommended.
