Construction Is Booming

Plumber, Sebastian, Plumber Vero, Plumber Melbourne

Here in Brevard & Indian River Counties, all of the General Contractors we work with are busy. They haven’t seen this kind of activity in more than six years and it is so welcome. Throughout the past few years, the talking heads have been saying there is not enough housing to meet the demands of millenials who are finally getting jobs and leaving the nest and this construction boom is proof!

In Florida it is also a case of the retiring baby boomers moving here from other parts of the country. The prices are still much more reasonable than in some other parts of the U.S. and people are looking to lower the cost of living so they can more readily enjoy their retirement.

At IRC Plumbing, we work with contractors in both Brevard County and Indian River County. It is the best part of our job to be in on a home’s plumbing from the very beginning. To help design and to properly install plumbing and fixtures that will work properly for years to come.

If you hear of anyone who is planning to build their own home, or a new office, tell them about IRC Plumbing!

BEFORE You Start Construction!

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.

Laundry Rooms!!

Until about 10 years ago it seemed that laundry rooms were not something to waste interior space on. In fact, most of the homes in Florida sent us out to our garage, or to the space between the garage and kitchen to do our laundry. The high end homes began to understand that doing laundry in a hot garage in the summer, which, here in Florida seems to last until November some years, is NOT a selling feature. So they moved the laundry room into the home. Where the laundry person, usually Mom, could be more comfortable.

Now laundry rooms are truly becoming a room that has style and function. Before you build your new dream home, or remodel your existing home, and for that fact, for some of the new offices being constructed now, take a look at HOUZZ, and see what can be done with that shabby old place that used to be in the garage!!

 

State of the art washer and dryer which use less water and power, a great sink for handwashing, and a place to hang up clothes and you take them out of the dryer. Plus storage for cleaning items and bulk items that aren’t used very often.

New Construction & Plumbing

IRC Plumbing is growing, and so are Indian River and Brevard Counties!

We have been getting more calls for remodels lately, and now we are getting plenty of calls from people building homes, offices and commercial buildings. Let’s face it, working on plumbing is what we do, and we will always be happy to do it. But some of the most fun we have is planning and installing brand new kitchens, bathrooms, break rooms, pot fillers and all the plumbing that no one sees once the walls are up!

The best time for us to work on those types of projects is before any building ever begins. It pays to have experienced plumber work on the plans with you right from the start. Something that may look good on paper could be difficult, or even expensive to install. We won’t talk you out of things you want, but we will help you to optimize your plumbing installation while still getting the look and feel you want.

It is also important to define the look you are going for and planning properly for the function behind the great look. Some of the more European looking fixtures can be stunning, but they might require a different method of installation.
