Faced with poorly designed small spaces or out of date styles, increasing numbers of New Yorkers are renovating and remodeling their apartments. “I love my neighborhood,” Anna explained, “and I’m really not interested in all the hassle that comes with a move. So it’s time to make the space I have work better for me.”
Anna’s plans include adding a more luxurious shower unit to her bathroom. “This unit’s got it all; a waterfall shower head, wall mounted jets, controllable temperature and pressure – I mean, everything.” Having a new shower unit installed required Anna’s contractors to enlarge the footprint of the bathroom. “They recommended that I bring in my NYC plumbing contractor at that point to ensure the installation will go smoothly.”
Avoid Headaches: Let Your NYC Plumbing Contractor Be Your Guide
Bringing your plumbing contractor in early on any apartment renovation is a good idea. Their familiarity with local building codes as they pertain to plumbing issues can help ensure you have everything you’re required to have in terms of clearance for pipes, drainage, venting and more. It’s much more affordable to build everything correctly the first time rather than having to adjust things if the plumbing won’t fit the way it needs to!
Don’t Forget About Your Sprinkler System
Some NYC apartment renovations will require upgrades or modernization of the existing sprinkler system. Your NYC Plumbing Contractor is your best resource for this, as the codes and requirements pertaining to sprinkler installation are fairly stringent. If your tenancy agreement is such that the building owner is responsible for sprinkler upkeep, your contractor can coordinate with them to ensure the right system is in place.
