Face it. Upgrading plumbing fixtures isn’t cheap.

But how much will those upgrades cost? In this post we examine the costs of typical upgrades, helping homeowners plan for future purchases.
Unless you built a custom home, where you got to pick all the plumbing and money was of no concern, chances are your house is filled with builder’s-grade fixtures. At some point those fixtures will start to fail and need to be replaced, or you get tired of cheaper fixtures and want to upgrade.

Plumbing is the one system that can malfunction at any time, in any number of places, for any number of reasons.
For comparison, the air conditioner cycles on and off several times a day. Your only real interaction with the AC is setting the thermostat and remembering to change the air filter, unless it’s time for seasonable maintenance and service from a Columbus, GA HVAC tech. As long as homeowners use a professional contractor for checkups once or twice a year, the AC should hum along nicely.
But that’s not the case with residential plumbing. There are so many plumbing “touch points” in your Columbus, GA home that any problem can arise at any time. A running toilet. Leaky faucets. A pipe that bursts.
