Homeowners have a tendency to blame themselves when a renovation goes wrong, but that’s often not the case. Sometimes the reason a DIY project doesn’t turn out as intended will have everything to do with the original piping you have in the house. Sometimes you’ll run into non-standard plumbing, and for the DIY-er, that can be a real challenge.
Another reason DIY plumbing can be tricky is that those DIY instructions leave out vital steps, assume knowledge you may not have, or are just incorrect. When your instructions are bad, your results will be worse!
When you call in the best plumbers in New York City, they can do more than get your project back on track. They can make sure that all of your plumbing work is performed according to DOB code. This is important, especially in terms of your homeowner’s or property insurance requirements.
