The Case For A New Bathroom
Beyond aesthetics, 10 reasons to Renovate your bathroom
Correcting structural flaws, fixing leaks and making sure that all services are adequate before renovating will make your bathroom renovation look better, work better and last longer.
No more noisy pipes
There is no point in a flash new bathroom if the plumbing is not up to scratch. That banging noise (water hammer), poor water pressure and slow drainage are classic problems with old bathrooms. Unresolved water problems will cause renovations to deteriorate quickly. Plumbing leaks can also contribute to mould growth and result in serious indoor air quality problems. Our renovations include repairing any plumbing leaks, upgrading plumbing to meet current codes and replacing water pipes where necessary. We also audit drainage systems to ensure proper vents and traps are installed.
No more leaks
Bubbles Bathrooms are experts at replacing damaged/outdated fixtures and seals; fixing chipped or cracked grout or caulking; maintaining grout and caulking to prevent water access to cavities; and eradicating blistering or peeling paint, water stains or buckled surfaces. Bubbles Bathrooms will determine if moisture is coming from building leaks, plumbing leaks or high humidity. We will repair or replace all water-damaged or deteriorating elements, clean up visible mould growth and correctly ventilate to control excess humidity.
More energy efficiency and water savings
New toilets use an average of 70 per cent less water per flush. Low-flow showerheads can save 60 per cent on water usage. Compact fluorescent light fixtures are four times more efficient than standard incandescent bulbs.
Better ventilation + reduced condensation
Bad ventilation can lead to moisture problems, mould growth and respiratory problems. Bubbles Bathrooms works with low odor, low-toxicity materials and finishes to minimise the effects on indoor air quality.
Many old bathrooms contain cracks, slopes or bulges that might mean that the floor or supporting members are deteriorating or inadequate. Older bathrooms can also be drafty – this is usually noticeable whilst taking a bath. Insulating and air sealing the exterior wall, ceiling or floor assemblies will provide warm surfaces and a draft-free space.
Access for people with special needs
A new bathroom is for the long-term. It is important to think of future needs. Bubbles Bathrooms is highly-skilled at designing and installing bathrooms with the right safety and accessibility features for your family.
