Some smart plumbing upgrades and renovations can increase your property value
Making decisions to renovate your home or update old fittings is a big deal. It’s easy to spend a lot of money and there’s the understandable fear of over-capitalising. But done well, renovations can increase your property value.
Here’s our list of the five best ways that a plumber can help you to increase your property value and enhance your enjoyment of your home.
Update your bathroom
An outdated and dysfunctional bathroom can really wipe the dollars off your home’s value. Investing in a bathroom makeover is a smart way to spend your renovation budget. Whether you’re planning a complete bathroom remodel, or just freshening up with some key new fittings, like a new toilet and updated tapware, we can help you to ensure you’re getting the best bang for your buck.
Freshen up your kitchen
Kitchens are another high impact room where you can really add value to your property. Consider replacing old taps for a low-cost upgrade that can modernise your kitchen. You can also consider plumbed-in water filtration systems and upgrading dated gas appliances with new and efficient models.
Go sustainable to save
Upgrading fixtures and fittings to be water efficient can increase your home’s sustainability rating and save you money on ongoing water bills. Modern water-saving devices no longer mean that you need to sacrifice on performance so are well worth upgrading.
Stop leaking money
Engaging a plumber to perform a comprehensive check for leaks will also save you money. Of course, you’ll save money on your water bill, but you can also prevent expensive repairs to your walls and flooring from undetected leaks. As part of a plumbing health check, Jahli Plumbing can also check for slow drains, old pipes, and make sure your hot water system is in good working order. It’s also worth getting your gutters and drains checked to make sure that they are flowing effectively and not causing slow and hidden structural damage.
Think about lifestyle extras
Does your home have an amazing outdoor area? Would a gas point for a barbeque and a plumbed in outdoor sink make it even more incredible? Likewise, if you have a big garage ideal for hobbies, could a sink increase the functionality? Think about how you use the space now, how you’d like to use the space, and what would be attractive to future owners of the property.
