A Closer Look at Rough In Plumbing

Property construction and home renovations involve several different steps, each of which must be completed to ensure comfort, safety, and compliance with local building codes. Rough in plumbing refers to the placement of a home’s underlying plumbing system, such as supply pipes and drainage pipes, which must be done before the building can be inspected and the building permit for the project can be finalized. Although the goal of rough in plumbing is to put all the pieces of a plumbing system in place without any expected changes, these pieces remain accessible until the final building permit is obtained so that your Provo plumbing service can make alterations if necessary to ensure your plumbing meets all necessary codes and requirements for safety and efficiency.

A Look at the Stages of Project Completion

Regardless of whether you are building a home, adding a room to your existing home, or simply remodeling a bathroom, kitchen, or other space, there are several steps involved in the construction of your plumbing system. Before work begins, you and your plumber will discuss the overall design of the plumbing system, which includes the placement of drains, fixtures, and water supply points for appliance hookups. Once you’re satisfied with the layout of the plumbing, your plumber will lay the pipes and place the hookups for your fixtures inside your walls, ceilings and floors. After this has been completed, the property will be inspected to ensure it complies with all local codes and ordinances; if changes need to be made, your plumber will complete them and the property will be inspected again to check the changes before your building permit is issued in full. After the permit has been obtained, your plumber will finish his work and your other contractors will then install components such as walls, ceilings, flooring, cabinetry, and appliances.

The Part You Play in Rough In Plumbing

While your plumber will of course complete all the rough in plumbing work needed for your home, you will have an important part to play during this process. Not only will you help to decide where your plumbing drains and hookups should be located, you’ll also need to choose the fixtures and other materials you want installed. Plumbing pipes are available in several different materials and with several different widths; your plumber can help by making recommendations regarding the materials and layouts he thinks will work best for your home, but the final decisions will be up to you. Adding features such as slightly larger drains in your master tub and shower or utilizing touchless faucets in your kitchen and bathroom can drastically increase the convenience and functionality of your plumbing system for greater everyday luxury once your project is complete.
