Kitchens and bathrooms are where people look first when buying a home. Spending money to renovate the kitchen or bathroom is money well spent. It also gives you the best return on investment. So whether you are just changing counter tops or changing cabinets and switching things up, it is always best to call an Orlando plumber to get the low down on what you can and can’t get away with. Time and time again we get customers that call up after and we go out to reconnect the kitchen and it does not work. The drain ends up being too high and you cannot hook up the waste for the kitchen sink; especially with a garbage disposal. How does this happen? Well, if the old sink is set above and is not very deep and you go back with a deeper sink or a under-mount sink, you lose depth. This can be a big problem when it comes to hooking up the sink at the end of the project. Thats why it is imperative that you contact a plumber and verify that the drain is low enough to support the new kitchen sink. If it’s not it’s a lot easier to have the plumbing contractor lower it before the cabinets are in. This usually requires opening up the wall and lowering the whole branch arm down. Making sure the drain height is good is very important if you want your new sink to work. Same thing goes with the bathroom sinks, they are not usually as critical, but if your drain stub out for the sink is high you can run into the same issues at the end of the job: not being able to hook it up. So, when investing in your kitchen and bathroom make sure you invest in hiring a professional to check your kitchen plumbing and make sure it will all work out.
