While the toilet isn’t usually top of mind for most property owners in their daily lives, properly executing a Millbrae toilet installation can make a big difference for your home or office. As one of the top experts in Millbrae toilet installation, our team has put together this quick guide to help you get the most from your toilet installation project.

Don’t DIY
While most people realize that toilet installations are not for the average person to tackle, we always hear of the occasional person who does try to take on the challenge. Toilets are usually very heavy pieces of equipment that need to be handled with care during transit and require skill to install. A lot can go wrong with a toilet installation when attempted improperly, and many people end up burning far more time than expected and even give up out of frustration. Doing it yourself is not worth it ‒ make sure you work with a professional plumbing expert like our team at Performance Plumbing.

Find a quality expert
Since DIY usually isn’t an option, it’s important that you pick a home improvement plumbing team that is well-qualified ‒ don’t pick just any self-proclaimed plumber. Make sure the plumber you work with is both licensed and fully insured, as our team at Performance Plumbing is. We believe this should be seen as essentially a baseline requirement for any professional plumber.

In addition, we encourage you to pick a plumber with a high overall rating on customer review websites like Yelp. Many customers tell us that they are happy to choose us because of our strong reputation and positive customer comments, so you may want to consider this important customer feedback resource as well.

Make sure they have past experience
When evaluating plumbing vendors, make sure you find a team that is well-experienced in home improvement plumbing specifically, like our team at Performance Plumbing is. While many plumbers can handle basic repairs, not everyone is as adept at home improvement plumbing projects the way teams like ours are, and more thought often goes into these projects. Look not only for home improvement plumbing experience, but also experience with toilet installations specifically. The plumber you choose should be able to describe past projects they’ve worked on that had similar requirements, as well as describe how they solved the customer needs of the project. If you’re working with a commercial property, you can likewise look for a plumber with commercial plumbing experience.

Research examples
As you prepare to discuss your toilet installation with the plumber you choose, be sure to do a little research beforehand to find examples of what you like. These days it’s as easy as ever, with online resources like Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and blogs all burgeoning with more and more visual examples of great toilet installations. Choosing a few examples ahead of time can give the plumber an idea of what you’re looking for, and the plumber can advise you on feasibility, cost, and other aspects.
