Plumbing tips to add value to your property

If you are a landlord or property developer and you are preparing to sell your property soon, then there are so many ways that you can add value so it sells for more in the housing market.

This doesn’t necessarily mean major changes like a massive extension, but these small plumbing changes will upgrade your home very tactfully!

Upgrade your pipes

If you are renovating an old build, then your pipes will need updating.

Pipes that are galvanised are prone to internal corrosion, which can give water an unpleasant taste.

Lead pipes will also need replacing as lead can cause health risks if it taints the water you drink.

Plumbers recommend PVC pipes for waste and copper pipes for a clean water supply.

Improving your pipes will lead to better water supplies, drainage systems and the overall functionality and safety of your home.

Time for a new shower or kitchen sink

As well as improving the plumbing system of your home, having a new shower, bath, or kitchen sink put in will increase the aesthetic appeal of your home.

Repair leaky drains

Even if your drains are not clogged, leaking or seemingly in need of replacing, having a local plumbing engineer come and inspect your drains will ensure that all is running smoothly in your home.

PVC pipes prevent future blockages, so are a good option for replacement.

Check your water heater

It is absolutely vital that the water heater in the home you plan to sell is completely functional, up-to-date and well serviced.

Seek advice from a plumber to find out the right option for your home.

Changing your water heater can help you save energy and money in the long-term if you choose an eco-friendly one. 

Add another bathroom

This will require more renovation work, however, if your home only has one bathroom, then adding another one will definitely increase its value.

You can kit out your new bathroom with the highest-spec appliances to make it modern and trendy.

Talking through the appliance options with a plumber can help you know what will be best for your home.
