Do I Need a Pro to Install Bathroom Vanities?

Do I Need a Pro to Install Bathroom Vanities Oakland County, MI

While some homeowners may be able to replace their bathroom vanities without drama, many need the expertise of a remodeling contractor to avoid issues with plumbing, electrical, flooring, and walls. Our bathroom contractors can help you avoid some of the most common mistakes.

For example, one mistake we see from DIY homeowners is getting a vanity that is not the right height for their bathroom plumbing. With our bathroom remodeling contractors, you can get one step closer to your dream home without taking detours to fix common remodeling mistakes.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of hiring a professional to install your bathroom vanity.

Protect Against Unforeseen Complications

If your bathroom was exactly like the one in an online tutorial, you would probably be fine installing a bathroom vanity on your own. However, the truth is that each bathroom (along with its plumbing) is unique.

For example, you may need to consider the fact that your flooring doesn’t continue underneath your current vanity. You may also discover that plumbing shutoff valves were never installed.

These are just a couple of problems you may encounter when trying to install your bathroom vanity on your own. Others include:

  • New vanity is deeper than the old one
  • Vanity sink is wrong height for plumbing
  • Plumbing shutoff valves don’t work
  • Mirror rests on top of bathroom countertops

A bathroom remodeling contractor can help your project run more smoothly when faced with unforeseen complications. It’s much easier to hire a professional before your bathroom remodel than to hire one after you’ve ripped up the floor and ruined your bathroom. 

Benefit from a Higher Skill Level

Not everything is a DIY job, especially if this is your first bathroom remodel. It’s important to recognize whether you have the skills for bathroom plumbing, electrical work, flooring, and cabinetry.

Homeowners may feel comfortable doing smaller projects on their own, such as putting up shelves or a new towel rack. These are great for DIY jobs because there’s a low risk involved if things go wrong. Maybe your shelf is a little crooked, for example, but you can still use your bathroom just fine, so you can live with a crooked shelf. However, there are certain tasks that must adhere to higher levels of professionalism for safety reasons.

For example, plumbing and electrical work in particular are subject to rules, regulations, and local building codes. These are highly technical jobs that can result in disaster if not completed properly. You may be able to live with a crooked shelf, but you can’t live in a house with a sink that doesn’t drain or a toilet that doesn’t flush. 

Replacing a bathroom vanity may require a higher skill level if plumbing, electrical, or other technical issues are involved. Our bathroom remodeling contractors have the skill and training to handle these issues appropriately.

Save Time and Money

How much time do you have to replace your bathroom vanity? If you’re working under a deadline to get the bathroom remodel done, you may be better off hiring a contractor.

Our bathroom remodeling contractors work efficiently and produce quality results. We understand that our customers lead busy lives, which is why we are respectful of your timelines.

In addition to saving time, you’ll also save money in the long run by hiring a contractor for your bathroom renovations. The last thing you want is to make a mistake that ends up costing you hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars in repairs.

For example, one mistake with bathroom plumbing could cause water damage inside of your walls. If you aren’t sure you have the skills for a bathroom remodel, it’s important to respect your limits and call a professional.
