For many of our astute customers in the local area, ensuring they get the best possible Redwood City toilet installation results is a top priority. Since we’ve earned a reputation as one of the best Redwood City toilet installation specialists around, many of our customers trust us to make sure their toilet installation gets done right.

However, you don’t have to be our existing customer to benefit from our expertise – we’ve put together these quick tips to help anyone get pointed in the right direction when it comes time to installing their new toilet.

Tip #1: Scan the surroundings

Before you even get to the toilet itself, it’s important to do a quick analysis of the area around the installation site.

Make sure you don’t make the easy mistake of only considering if the size of the toilet will fit the space – it’s important to have enough space in addition to the toilet itself, so that the person using the toilet has enough space to rest comfortable and access nearby amenities if needed.

Furthermore, it’s important to consider the overall style that you’re aiming to capture or which exists in the room already to avoid awkward mismatches.

When our team at Performance Plumbing works with our clients, we’re always happy to help provide consultation regarding what toilet installation options best fit the area the property owner has to work with. We don’t just make sure the toilet will fit, we make sure the toilet will also function comfortably for anyone who interacts with it.

Tip #2: Research toilet options before making a decision

Once you’ve completed the analysis of the location where the toilet installation will occur, the next step is to do an analysis of the various types of toilets on the market and which are most successfully implemented.

This means taking a look at makes, models, styles, colors and materials. There are a lot of options to consider, so one of the best ways to quickly and effectively narrow down the range to find what you truly like is through visual aids online.

Home improvement blogs are a decent place to start, but Pinterest and Instagram are also very powerful visual tools for seeing what the toilets actually look like, as well as how they look when installed in a surrounding space. This is far superior than browsing toilet options with just the toilet itself and no surrounding context.

Finally, once you’ve gathered your favorite examples, you can opt to get the professional advice of a home improvement plumber like those on our team. We’re always happy to review what you like best and make suggestions to fit your goals.

For many of our customers, hearing us explain the pros and cons of each model in terms of features, fit and function help provide a lot more context to their decision, and they’re very happy they got a professional opinion before choosing which unit to install.

Tip #3: Choose your plumbing professional wisely

As you’ve probably gathered at this point, our team at Performance Plumbing puts a high priority on customer service and ensuring our customers feel they have all the information and insights they need before moving ahead with their toilet installation.
