Plumbing projects can be overwhelming, but maintaining, and even improving, your home’s plumbing system can raise its value.
The last thing any homeowner (or rental property owner) wants to happen is for their home to lose value. Fortunately, you can help your home avoid depreciation, and perhaps even see its value rise by making some plumbing upgrades.
Drain, Pipe, and fixture Inspection and Repair
The first plumbing projects you need to take on to protect your home’s value is to ensure that your drains, pipes, and fixtures are in good condition by having a professional plumber inspect them. After you are sure nothing needs to be repaired, you can then focus on increasing the convenience, efficiency, and healthiness of your home’s plumbing system.
New Appliances and Fixtures
Appliances and fixtures—like bathtubs, sinks, dishwashers, and toilets—are an excellent place to start improving your home. Not only do these everyday items increase your home’s attractiveness, but also, they improve efficiency and conserve water when you replace old models with new ones.
A Tankless Water Heater
We’ve all been the last one to use the shower in the morning. Is there anything worse than getting all lathered up only for the hot water to run out? With a tankless water heater, cold showers and baths are a thing of the past. While this plumbing project can be expensive, the value that it can add to your home and the money it can save you in energy costs are worth the investment.
A Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System
Depending on where you live, your tap water might smell and taste less than appealing. Minerals and other contaminants could be the cause of your water’s bad taste and odor. Installing a reverse osmosis water filtration system in your home will make the issue a thing of the past.
When combined with a water softener, an RO system can give you the cleanest, purest water you have ever seen.
One way to keep your home’s value high is to add value to it. Another way is to prevent damage from happening to it. Changes in pressure between your plumbing and the sewer system can lead to wastewater backing up into your home. Imagine the smell. Imagine the damage to your floors and possessions. That’s thousands of dollars down the drain, and you can bet that when you flush money down the toilet, it’s not coming back up.
Maybe the first item on your list of plumbing projects should be installing a backflow prevention device.
