FAQ's on Bathroom Installation

If you’ve chosen to have a new bathroom installed in your home, you’re probably looking forward to renovating a tired and high-traffic space!


However, not all bathroom installations are created equal, whilst fitting a new suite in an existing space can be deceptively challenging.


To help your project run smoothly, we’ve covered some of the most frequently asked questions and provided the answers below!


Who Should Carry Out the Installation?


Most bathroom redesigns involve the repair of existing pipes or the installation of new ones, and this work will need to be undertaken by an accredited plumbing engineer.


However, if you’re also having work done to the boiler or the connecting pipe, you’ll need to employ a qualified heating engineer to carry out the work.


It’s always better to err on the side of caution, so we’d recommend calling out a plumbing & Heating engineer if unsure about the full scope of work.


What’s Involved in a New Bathroom Installation?


Ultimately, you’ll decide the precise scope of work associated with your project, particularly as not every component will need to be replaced in most instances.


However, a new bathroom installation can involve the fitting of a completely new suite (including a shower, bath, sink and toilet). It can also involve the installation of radiators and towel-rails, depending on your precise requirements.


This also supports the employment of a qualified plumbing & heating engineer, who can complete a comprehensive installation without any discernible compromise.


Do I Have to Install a Brand New Suite?


The short answer is no, as the precise scope of work required depends on your condition of your bathroom.


For example, whilst you may need to have a new bath or shower installed, your toilet or sink may be in perfectly good condition.


The key is to understand precisely what work you want completed as part of the project, and don’t be afraid to ask the opinion of your chosen service provider if you’re unsure.
