At Mr. Rooter, we work with some of the best plumbers in Atlanta. Our local plumbers have seen it all, and have performed many repairs and installations in homes all across the area. Over the years, we've developed a good understanding of what kind of plumbing investments will create value for your home. Bad plumbing systems and appliances can cost a fortune in expensive water bills and unnecessary repairs. Good investments however, can pay dividends, not only in monthly savings but in equity as well. If you've saved up for a home renovation project and are deciding where your dollars will get the best return, here's a few ideas that might inspire you.
Install an Extra Bathroom
One of the best ways to boost the value of your house is to add another bathroom. Most families want more than one place to get ready, and if your home only has one bath, it might be a lot harder to sell. Think there's no way you can add an extra bathroom to your existing space? Think again. Believe it or not, it only takes about 25-30 square feet of space to fit in a sink, toilet and shower. Here's a few places where adding a bathroom is easy and cost effective:
- Take away a few feet from the length of your master bedroom to create a complete master suite.
- If you have two rooms beside one another with back to back closets, there's probably enough space to fit a small bathroom.
- Under the stairwell is a perfect place to add a half bath or powder room for guests.
- If you haven't already done so, finish out your attic and basement for extra living space. Since you're already renovating the area, add in a full or half bathroom to add even more value.
The plumbers at Mr. Rooter are highly skilled professionals, and can help take the complexity out of a difficult job and help you save money and time. Give us a call and let us help with your next major plumbing project.
Revamp Your Kitchen
The kitchen is also a great place to find simple improvements. Even if it isn't in your budget to do a complete makeover, adding a few extras can make all the difference. For instance, updating your old dishwasher with an energy efficient model can put money in your pocket, not only in the future if you choose to sell your home, but right now with lower utility bills. Also, if you don't have one already, a garbage disposal can also be a worthwhile investment.
Get a New Water Heater
If your home is older than ten years and you have not already replaced your water heater, it might be time to look into your options. Newer models are much more energy efficient than they were in the past. Certain tankless and solar powered water heaters might even qualify for a decent tax credit. Mr. Rooter of Atlanta has a team of local plumbers that specialize in water heater repair and installation and can help you find the best one for your home.
Invest in Much Needed Repairs
Perhaps your family is looking for maximum results with the lowest amount of upfront cost. If that's the case for you, it may not be necessary to purchase brand new appliances or take on expensive renovations. Sometimes, the best way to save money for your family and ensure the overall health and wellbeing of your home is to properly maintain its plumbing system. Some very affordable repairs can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars long term. Having routine inspections and making small repairs as needed, may make it possible to avoid plumbing system failures. That's big money that can be reinvested later when you're ready to take on a larger project.
