BEFORE You Start Construction!

IRC Plumbing for Melbourne, Sebastian, Vero Beach

When people make the decision to build a custom home, often the first thing they do is consult an architect and an interior designer. They lay out their specifications for their dream home, a large kitchen, a spa like bath, and big screened in porch, and think they are well on their way. Those plans go through the normal process of engineering and permits, then on to the builder and off they go.

What they sometimes forget to do is call in their plumber.  BEFORE the plans are finalized ! A plumber can save time, money and frustration by making certain that all of the plumbing for the home is up to the most current code standards, that placement of bathrooms, kitchen sinks, is done so that everything will be working properly when all is said and done.

We have seen, and reworked, bathrooms which were built with the wrong type of grading, where pipe runs were not optimal, and changing these types of things after the fact can be very costly. At IRC Plumbing we have been called into remedy situations where the homes are not properly plumbed for the types of fixtures the owner and designer have picked out.

Certain types of faucets require different valves or valve lengths than others, and if you choose one of these fixtures AFTER all of the plumbing has been set, it may require tearing out portions of a wall to redo those valves.

When installing a shower, it always seems logical to place the controls for the shower head directly in line with the shower head itself.  Yet, how many of us get hit with a spray of cold water every morning when we turn on the shower?

These are all little things that a plumber can help with before everything is set in stone, so to speak. Before you build your dream home, call Lucien and he will sit down with you and your designer or architect and make certain the right materials and designs are in place.

Speak Your Mind
