With proper ongoing maintenance and care in your daily use of a a plumbing system, it's unlikely a full replacement of plumbing throughout your house will ever become an immediate necessity. However, you may want to upgrade your plumbing system from what was originally built as part of the home. Such a project may be as simple as replacing a shower head or faucet with one that provides better performance, or it can be a more difficult project that involves installing new pipes for a home addition or for the sake of making a bonus room or basement into a free standing apartment. Regardless of what your immediate need for a plumber may be, there is a reason you want to hire one who is licensed and proven in the local community as a great contractor.

Water Leaks and Dripping Faucets

When a faucet is leaking, it needs to be fixed in order to save water and reduce your water bill. In some situations, the faucet can be repaired, but it's often far simpler to replace the faucet and that is usually a good time to upgrade from a standard generic faucet that came with the home to a customized faucet which reflects your personal style and the decorations you use in the kitchen. Leaks which happen behind the wall in the actual pipes can be an indication of a deeper problem. The fundamental pipes in a house's plumbing system rarely need to be fully replaced, but it does come up occasionally that plumbing systems may fail and need an overhaul by a professional plumbing contractor.

Kitchen and Bath Remodel Jobs

Part of the reason why plumbing seldom needs replacing is because most houses have kitchen and bath remodel jobs before the pipes themselves are old enough to need replacement. When cabinetry is being replaced and walls are pulled out for a remodel job is the perfect opportunity to go ahead and replace the plumbing with new pipes according to how codes may have changed since the house was first built. Even if the pipes don't have to be replaced at the moment, it's always a good idea to be proactive and conduct potential repairs preemptively rather than waiting for a problem to arise. It's always going to be easier to address problems before they come up rather than fix them afterwards.
