New home buyers need to know about their plumbing and what to do if something goes wrong. Yes, if the home is new, the plumbing is, too. However, its quality and functioning depend heavily on the work of the plumbing contractors who installed it. Whether you’re buying for the first time or among the seasoned new home buyers, you need to know these things about your home’s plumbing.
Find Out Who Installed the Plumbing
First, find out who installed the plumbing in your new home. In some cases, the builder may have used a general contractor for the work. In other instances, they may have chosen professional plumbing contractors. The latter has more experience with plumbing and has special qualifications to become contractors.
Who did the plumbing work in your new home is important because it will give you information about whom you should call if you have a problem.
Learn About the Plumbing Warranty
New home buyers don’t always know that they have a warranty on their home’s construction. In fact, if you had Plumbing Concepts as your builder’s contractor install your new home’s plumbing, you have a warranty that lasts for one year. If you have questions about what your plumbing warranty covers, feel free to contact us.
The One Thing New Home Buyers Forget: Maintenance
Your new home should last for years. However, regular use of the plumbing system will put it to the test. Plus, in Southern California, shifting ground and tree roots could cause unexpected issues with your plumbing system. However, most new home buyers forget to properly maintain their homes, including the plumbing systems. They assume that because they cannot see the pipes, nothing is wrong.
Keeping up with regular maintenance can help you to avoid problems such as blockages, buildup, and burst pipes. As soon as you see a small problem, call a plumber to have it repaired. If you wait, the problem will become worse and more costly to fix.
