Here at C. Slany Plumbing, with over 20 years in custom home building, we have spent many years remodeling Gilbert bathrooms and kitchens. Even in full remodels, a question that seems to come up often is whether we need to replace pluming pipe and plumbing systems.

Are you interested in remodeling one of your bathrooms, maybe even the kitchen? As you begin planning this remodel, make sure you have a plumber come to inspect the plumbing that lies beneath the surfaces. Since most plumbing will be exposed, now is the perfect time to inspect and replace any old or damaged piping…

Ideally, you hope that all of your Gilbert home plumbing is in great condition and the current system will tie in perfectly to any new fixtures or additions you might be adding. However, this isn’t always the case and you may need to replace some sections due to age, damage, or because of new plumbing not being compatible.

One of the most commonly chosen materials for water pipes is copper. For those who wish to continue using copper (or who would like to switch to this material), rely on a professional plumber to have this installed. Copper piping requires soldering, which is definitely not a DIY job! Other choices are PEX and PVC pipes, which are both code-compliant, cost-effective, and can sometimes be better depending on what they’re being used for.
