Kitchen Remodeling with a Plumbing Contractor

Kitchen remodeling projects don’t transpire as easily as documented on HGTV and other DIY home design television shows. There are so many plumbing articles that mislead many homeowners into believing that they can do it themselves. With You Tube videos and cable TV downplaying the intricacy of kitchen remodeling projects, there’s a growing misconception that hiring a plumbing contractor is unnecessary.

In reality, some of the “simplistic” kitchen remodeling jobs can quickly turn catastrophic. Here are four projects to enlist the professional support of a plumbing contractor:

Install garbage disposals.
On DIY websites such as Popular Mechanics, the garbage disposal replacement is “fairly simple.” Yet between the drain fittings, electrical connections and leaks, the garbage disposal installation, replacement is best managed by a plumbing contractor.

Installing gas lines.
Installing gas lines is considered a facet of plumbing. Even though connecting a gas line for an oven or any other kitchen appliance seems easy enough, leaking gas can be fatal. The challenge is that flexible gas connectors are not compatible with every gas line and appliance, the right fitting and adapters are integral to the gas line installation. We advise hiring a licensed contractor for any type of work with gas lines. Contact Hoffmann Brothers to request gas line installation or hook up.

Replace or install dishwashers
Installing a dishwasher is not a small kitchen remodeling project to embark upon without an expert. From the removal of the old unit, site preparation of the new dishwasher to disconnecting the water line, there are too many steps and frustration involved to chance.

Install an icemaker or configure a refrigeration system
If you know how where to locate the filling tube and solenoid coil or valve, turn off the valve leading to the copper waterline or remove the rear lower access panel on back of the refrigerator—without referring to a manual, than installing an icemaker or the configuration of a refrigeration system should be a straightforward DIY kitchen remodeling project.

Remodeling your kitchen can be extremely exciting, but doing it right is very important. Call a licensed plumber to ensure you don’t have to fix things in a few months or years if something was done incorrectly.
