For many a new bathroom suite may seem like a luxury, something you get when you have the money to spare. But realistically, life gets in the way, other things take priority, and your bathroom remains neglected. Sound familiar? Don’t worry you’re not alone but neglecting your bathroom could end up costing more than renovating it. Not all bathroom issues are obvious until they have caused much bigger issues within your home.
Hidden problems in your bathroom
Not all leaks are easy to detect, for example your sink may leak beneath the pedestal. You wouldn’t necessarily hear or see such leak until it begins to drip through your ceiling. If there is a fault in your pipes water maybe leaking behind your tiles. This will get worse each time you use your bathroom causing further damage to your home. Therefore, in addition to plumbing repairs, you will likely need repairs to the plaster and tiles.
Quick fixes could cost more
The average labour cost of a skilled plumber in London is around £90.00 per hour. This is before parts and materials are added into the equation. Once a bathroom suite shows signs of wear and tear, one problem often leads to another. Consequently, those plumber calls become more frequent, and the costs begin to add up.
A practicality, not just a luxury
Even the most prestigiously designed bathrooms are not built to last a lifetime. A well installed, high quality bathroom suite will last up to 10 years without issues. However, after 10 years you should consider replacing your suite before any bathroom issues start. Negating the need for additional and avoidable home repairs.
