Whether it’s the central task or simply part of a larger remodeling operation, replacing your kitchen’s plumbing can be a daunting prospect. Here in Princeton, kitchen plumbing can be quite old – especially if you live in an older house – and replacing it with a newer system makes a lot of sense. Even so, it’s not an inexpensive undertaking, and the costs are a serious consideration when planning such an operation. At the same time, you don’t want to short-change the endeavor with shoddy materials or craftsmanship. So how can you make the most of your investment money without spending unnecessarily?
Here are some ways to save money when replacing our kitchen’s plumbing.
- Hire a reliable contractor. It sounds like a no-brainer, but the wrong contractor can cost you far more in the long run than a reliable one can. A good contractor will ensure that the plumbing is installed correctly and made of proper materials, but he will also save money in the planning stage by placing faucets and similar outlets at advantageous points, and matching the plumbing with the contours of the space. He’ll also offer things like a guarantee on his work and an estimate of the costs before he begins.
- Keep practicality in mind. When remodeling, it’s easy to embrace pie in the sky dreams about all the great things your kitchen plumbing can have. Before you dive down that rabbit hole, go over your options with your contractor. Talk about things like the amount to space you have, the other needs of your kitchen (such as counter space) and the practical limits of what you can achieve. That lets you establish what can and can’t be done within the parameters of the project, preventing you from going over budget by biting off more than you can chew.
