BATHROOM & LAUNDRY RENOVATION PLUMBING
We believe the least visible part of a bathroom or laundry renovation but the most important is the…plumbing! A plumbing mistake or shortcut can be time consuming and very costly. By engaging a plumber with experience and skills your plumbing will be installed correctly, ensuring a quality service for many years.
Phil has been providing quality plumbing services to Perth for nearly two decades. He has the expertise and knowledge necessary to handle your plumbing needs, from troubleshooting problems with taps, to locating leaks.
As well as standard bathroom plumbing, like installing a new toilet or tap, he can also install other household appliances like a dishwasher or fridge that must be connected to your home’s pipes.
Waterproofing gear can be bought from your local hardware store. Some DIY renovators choose to do it themselves. But this is not without risk. Not only is the cost to fix a leak down the line astronomical but doing it yourself voids your home insurance. This is the assistance Phil can provide, to give you the peace of mind that it is being done properly.
Our plumbing services are ideally suited to existing homes where the owner is looking to renovate their bathroom, laundry and/or kitchen. But we also provide services and solutions for homeowners who wish to create new bathrooms, or even for new builds where the entire plumbing system must be designed and installed from scratch.

Waterproofing wet areas
While DIY shows may make it seem easy to apply your own waterproof membrane, it can prove to be a costly mistake. We have lost count of the number of shower repairs we have done in the past two decades due to poor application or the absence of waterproof membrane.
There are some aspects of a bathroom renovation that you should leave to a professional. The supply of quality waterproof membrane and how it is applied, is one such area. Save yourself time and money, by getting a professional like Phil to do it for you

We can then help you install your new washing machine to the water supply and move any pipes if relocating to a new location.
HOW TO SAVE ON PLUMBING COSTS WHEN RENOVATING A BATHROOM
We are experiencing uncertain times and we understand the importance of cost savings where feasible. An experienced and skilled licensed plumber is well equipped to suggest ways you can reduce your costs without compromising the integrity of your renovation.
Here are some ways you can save money during your bathroom renovation and consequently well into the future:
Keep your existing layout
One way to save plumbing costs is to stick with your existing layout. Keeping major fixtures where they are, can save you a lot of money. Whereas relocating toilets, sinks and taps means moving pipes, and potentially digging up floors. A costly exercise.
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to fixtures and fittings, making it difficult to decide. It can be tempting to go with the cheapest, but cheap may not serve you in the long run. In our experience, cheaper hardware often requires servicing or part replacement soon after install, and parts can be hard to source.
Instead we recommend choosing reputable brands with a good warranty period (12 to 15 years is good), that may be slightly pricier, but will serve you well into the future. Good brands also have good service history and will replace parts should they break down within the warranty period.
We will be delighted to help you to select your fixtures and fittings and are more than happy to pass on our trade discount to you, making it more affordable to choose quality hardware.
