Kitchen & Bathroom Remodel Planning


Your home should look and feel exactly how you want it to. Unfortunately, much like everything else, your house ages. Appliances become broken and out-of-date, counters get chipped and worn, floors get warped, sinks become leaky, etc. Eventually it gets to a point where you need to remodel your kitchen or bathroom. But where to start…?

A remodel can be done very cost-effectively, but it should be noted that it is a serious undertaking that should not be attempted without licensed and certified help. With that in mind, home owners often wonder how they can be sure that they are getting the best service at the best price. Ask yourself, does the company have years of experience, great customer testimonials and are they licensed and certified? has installation certifications, is a member of the Hartland Chamber of Commerce, American Society of Plumbing Engineers and the Radiant Panel Association.

After you find a reputable and reliable plumber to help with your remodel, the next thing you should consider is what exactly you want done. The plumber should have a wide range of products for you to choose from and evaluate. Take into account materials, where it was made, the color, texture and overall feel of your new install. Don’t settle; remember your plumber is there to work with you and bring your vision to life. If they aren’t providing the changes that you want, it’s time to move on to another company.

Last, think about function and form. Some sinks and counters look really nice, but if they are rough and not a good fit for the size of the area you are working with, don’t try to fit a square peg in a round hole. Go with a company whose goal is to put your design and ideas first and you will be extremely happy with your remodel. This post originally posted by to Paul Glapinski

Essentials of a Good Pewaukee Plumber

Hiring the right Pewaukee plumber is going to be critical to ensure that the job is done properly the first time and that you aren’t left wasting time or money. In fact, hiring someone at random who doesn’t have the basic knowledge and understanding of how your pipes work could cause major problems in your home. Here are the most vital things to keep in mind.

When you first look at any Pewaukee plumber, you need to ensure that they are licensed, bonded and insured. If they aren’t all three, you need to look at someone else. Not only will this end up causing you potential damage, but it could also cause problems on an insurance claim if something goes wrong and you don’t have a covered professional.

Once you have found a selection of plumbers, you should begin to explain the reason why you are calling them. Make sure you detail the problem and tell them you would like to their experience with that particular concern. The more experience a person has in the industry the more likely they are going to have the knowledge and expertise you are going to need.

Before you finalize the deal, take a quick look over the testimonials they have in place. It will be important that you take the time to look over all the information that is being said about the company. If you notice any red flags, such as negative reviews from genuine customers or the positive reviews restating information, then you may need to reconsider the information that you are reviewing.

When you have the Pewaukee plumber that you feel you can trust, you will need to pay close attention to their appearance when they arrive at your home. If they are covered in raw sewage and looking to walk across your white carpets, there may be a concern. Make sure they are taking care to respect you and your home when they come in, while also devoting the time they are in your home to work.

There are going to be plenty of choices out there for a Pewaukee plumber. If you keep these essentials in mind, then there is a good chance that you are going to end up hiring a plumber that will get the job done and they are bound to exceed your expectations. After all, if the job is done right the first time by a professional, you will have a chance to focus on the things that are going to be more important in your home. All without the stress of wondering if you can expect another pipe burst in the near future.
