For local homeowners, few home improvement plumbing projects can improve the daily life of residents like a successful Lafayette toilet installation. To help you ensure your Lafayette toilet installation project is a success, our team has put together these 5 tips to help you get off to the right start.

Plan to partner with the right home improvement plumber
One of the biggest drivers of success for any toilet installation project is partnering with the right home improvement plumber for your needs.

The best place to start is to find a high quality home improvement plumbing expert who has successfully performed many toilet installations in the past, like our team at Performance Plumbing.

In addition to past experience, check the plumber’s customer satisfaction track record on platforms like Yelp. At Performance Plumbing, we had one of the strongest reputations around, so we believe you shouldn’t accept anyone with a lower rating.

It’s also important not to forget to check for a professional license and insurance. Some plumbers sound great when you talk to them, but they might actually be freelancers or unlicensed labor. We believe that working with a fully licensed and insured plumber is important for anyone who expects a high standard of professionalism and property protection from mishaps.

Find examples for discussion
In preparation for your project, it’s usually a great idea to check out examples of other toilet installations to get a sense of what you like and what you might want your toilet installation to be like.

Take a moment to hop online and check out social media sites like Pinterest and Instagram where you can check out a large number of visual examples of toilet installations that people were proud enough to post.

Collect a set of examples that you like and think through what you think is best for your specific needs. You’ll want to discuss this with the plumber you’re working with to go through the pros and cons of each option. At Performance Plumbing, we’re always happy to talk through your options so don’t hesitate to reach out to us for advice.

Talk over toilet products
Another angle to consider are the toilet products that you have available to you for your toilet installation project. You’ll also want to discuss this with a professional who can explain pricing and pros and cons of each option.

If you have time and it’s convenient, we highly recommend going to a physical store to check out examples of toilet products. Going in person can really help give you a sense of what the materials are like to physically interact with, as well as the size and shape and how the products might fit into the room where you’ll be having the toilet installed.

Ask for a free estimate
