As with any trade involved in the building process, plumbing has its own set of regulations that must be followed to meet building and safety codes. To ensure your bathroom plumbing project in Ottawa meets or exceeds the building code requirements, the work must be done by a licensed plumber like John The Plumber and inspections must be passed at various stages of the process. The following are some do’s and don’ts to help your project go smoothly.
DO Consult a Licensed Plumber for your Bathroom Plumbing Ottawa projects
For bathroom plumbing repairs or to replace existing fixtures, you do not require a building permit. However, if your bathroom-plumbing job involves building a new bathroom, adding new fixtures or modifying the layout extensively, you will have to apply for a permit. Consulting with John The Plumber before beginning a large project can ensure you have detailed plans and the appropriate permits are obtained before work begins.
DON’T Allow Work to Continue without Inspection
Depending on the amount of work being done for bathroom plumbing in your Ottawa home, there will be mandated inspections at different stages. It is imperative that work does not continue past the stage where an inspection is due. If for some reason the plumbing were to fail the inspection, any additional work may have to be dismantled, adding additional costs to your project.
DO Hire a Plumber you can Trust
Much of the work for bathroom plumbing is hidden under flooring and behind walls. Hiring a plumber you can trust is critical to ensure proper materials and craftsmanship are applied so your water supply is safe, all noxious gases are vented properly and you won’t suffer leaks that can lead to mold and other serious problems. Choosing your licensed plumber carefully will also ensure they know what permits are needed and when to order the necessary inspections to get the job finished.
