Plumbing Upgrades That Increase Your Home’s Value

February 10, 2021 | Blog

Are you getting ready to sell your home and looking for ways to increase its value? Maybe you just want to increase your property value for the future. Either way, here are four ways plumbing upgrades like water heater replacements can boost your home’s value.

Plumbing and Appliances Upgrade

A simple thing you can do throughout your home is to install plumbing upgrades. Having new appliances will catch the homebuyer’s eye and make your home stick out against other listings. Newer plumbing fixtures and appliances can also be better for conserving water which is beneficial for you and the future homeowner.

In your bathrooms, consider replacing toilets, sinks or faucets, showers and even the toilets. Choose classic or modern fixtures to make your home’s design up to date. Avoid trendy fixtures as they can go out of style faster than you can sell your home.

Your kitchen is another great area in your home for upgrades. If you already have a dishwasher a new one can draw in home buyers. If you don’t already have one, the addition could be a plus for the home’s value. You can also upgrade the sink and garbage disposal in the kitchen. The kitchen is where families spend a lot of time so having good looking appliances and fixtures that fit their needs will be appealing for the home.

Drain Maintenance

Even if you do not want to fully replace all your bathroom and kitchen plumbing it is still important to make sure it functions properly. Doing maintenance by yourself or hiring a professional can make sure that all plumbing will be up to the new homeowner’s expectations. Maintenance can include making sure there are no leaks to avoid wasting water and cleaning out hair and other potential clogs.

Water Heater Replacement

One of the most important features in a home is a properly working water heater. If your water heater is over 10 years old or is not consistently producing warm water, you should consider a water heater replacement.

No one wants to move into a home and then be disappointed by the performance of the water heater. With a replacement you can ensure to the home buyers that it will be working to the best of its abilities.

Whole-Home Inspection to Assess Home Specifics

If you are not sure what exactly needs plumbing attention in your home, a whole-home inspection is an easy way to target problem areas and potentially prevent major problems. Whether your plumbing is getting old or you just want peace of mind this service will benefit you.

An inspection would involve an expert assessing the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, water heater and even outdoor plumbing elements. If something is flagged as an issue you now know what to fix and if everything checks out, you can ensure working plumbing when selling your home.

Excellent Service

Tom provided excellent service. He is obviously experienced- and quickly solved the problem. Our gas had to be shut off, so we were without our stove to cook, furnace to heat and hot water. Our home is happy again!
