For many busy homeowners, there simply isn’t enough time in the day to become an expert in all of the nuances of Hillsborough toilet installation projects. The good news is, our team of Hillsborough toilet installation specialists is happy to help share our knowledge, which is why we’ve put together these quick and simple tips to help get you started on the path to success.
Browse a wide selection of products
When considering what toilet you want to install on your property, it’s important that you check out a wide range of products that are available on the market.
These days you can do a lot of this work from the comfort of your home, by leveraging online social media resources like Instagram and Pinterest, and also using search engines like Google and visiting the websites of home improvement companies.
If you want to take your research efforts a step further, you can also go to a home improvement store like Lowe’s or Home Depot and browse the products in person. This can be a great way to get a feel for the size and feel of the product, and offers a superior tangible experience compared to browsing online.
Ultimately, how you review product options usually comes down to how much time you have, so any method that you use is completely fine, the emphasis is simply on educating yourself about your options before making your final decision.
Talk it over with a skilled professional
To help you navigate the many options that exist these days, we strongly recommend that you take a few examples of toilet installations that you like and talk them over with a skilled professional plumber, like our team at Performance Plumbing.
A well-qualified plumber will be able to explain to you the pros and cons of each example you’re considering, including variables like price, ease of installation, durability, style, and more.
Make sure you don’t choose just any unlicensed or uninsured worker. It’s important that you choose a fully licensed and insured plumber like our team, because your property value is at stake. It’s better to be safe rather than sorry, so be sure to put your project in the hands of an experienced plumbing specialist who is also backed by insurance.
Be sure to factor in room dimensions
Next, it’s important to consider the dimensions of the room that you’re installing the toilet into. Some people jump to large, spacious, comfortable toilet models without consider that they may be too large to comfortably use within a restricted bathroom where cabinets and a tub may be competing for usable space alongside your new toilet.
Be sure to choose a toilet that not only fits the space you have to work with, but also ensure that there is enough surrounding space to carefully use the toilet and make maneuvers like getting toilet paper from a mounted or freestanding toilet paper dispenser.
