Must Haves in Your Bathroom Remodel

No matter the size, a great bathroom combines comfort, style, and function. If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom, make sure it checks off each of the previous points by including these must haves in your decision process:iStock_000022564434_Large

Walk-in Shower: A tub can make an already small bathroom feel smaller and cluttered. Since walk-in showers take up only a fraction of the space, you’ll have the ability to make your bathroom look more luxurious – thus increasing its comfort and functionality.

Vanity Mirrors: Having additional hidden storage for medicine, makeup, and other knick knacks is a great way to stay organize without sacrificing space.

Eco-friendly Fixtures: Did you know the average family could save 2,900 gallons per year by switching to low flow toilets, faucets, or shower heads! Choosing fixtures with the WaterSense label is a great way to save money on monthly water and energy bills.

Natural Light: A little bit of sunlight goes a long way in improving the look and feel of your en suite. Choose a window design that doesn’t sacrifice privacy while letting light in or look into skylights as an option.

Tips for Keeping Your Bathroom Clean

Beautiful sink in a bathroom

The bathroom – one of your home’s most important rooms to keep clean, but equally one of the most difficult. Not to worry, Good Housekeeping has helped us round up some ways for you to get more mileage out of your cleaning efforts:

Stop moisture: While showering, crack the door or window and flip the exhaust fan on to help moisture dissipate. After the shower, stretch out the curtain to ensure it dries properly. If you have a shower door instead, consider hanging a squeegee in the shower and take a few minutes when finished to wipe down the walls, tub, and shower doors to delay the spread of mildew.

Use liquid soap: Eliminating a grimy soap dish will help both your counter-top and sink stay cleaner.

Install towel bars: Towels dry quicker when hung across a bar to dry. If you don’t have wall space, look into an over the door towel bar or some hooks to keep things tidy.

Keep disinfecting wipes handy: Tired of toothpaste splatters? Keeping some disinfecting cleaning wipes under the sink can help clean up messes before they have a chance to dry and become tougher to remove.

Keep some used dryer sheets nearby: Use these to quickly and easily pick up any hair or dust bunnies from the floor the moment you see them!

Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Trends for 2015

iStock_000043738514_Large

According to an Angie’s List survey – homeowners plan to go big in 2015, especially where their bathrooms and kitchens are concerned. Here are some of the top trends to keep an eye on this year:

  • Walk-in Showers – Homeowners are looking to ditch the bathtub and instead install walk-in showers with large rain head faucets and handheld sprayers.
  • Free Standing Tubs – For those still wanting a place to relax while bathing, freestanding bathtubs such as the contemporary basin style or antique clawfoot tubs are front of mind.
  • Gray is the New Beige – Walls, cabinets, and tile are all going gray scale. From kitchens to bathrooms, we’ve seen this trend come into play in the last few months and expect it to continue.
  • Stainless is Still King – For kitchen appliances, stainless steel still holds the crown. Only reason consumers may opt out of stainless is if they want custom made fronts that match the kitchen cabinets.
  • More Closet Space – Consumers are shopping more and increasing the size of their wardrobe. Most look to remodel their master ensuite to hold a large walk-in closet.

If you’re looking to renovate your bathroom or kitchen this new year, contact the experts at Patterson Plumbing & Heating. Our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath® of Pueblo, and kitchen remodeling division, 5 Day Kitchens, will work with you to ensure your new remodel meets all of your family’s needs.

Tips and Tricks to Baby Proof Your Home

Crawling

Did you know September is National Baby Safety Month? Whether you have little ones in your home or are inviting guests with children over, it may be wise to check over things to ensure safety.

A child’s curiosity can certainly place him/her in some risky situations – take the steps to baby proof your house now to avoid a trip to the emergency room later:

Plumbing

  • To prevent scalds and burns, lower the temperature of your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Install toilet locks
  • Use a thermometer to check the temperature of the bath water
  • Be sure appliances, like hair dryers, are stored away from the bathtub
  • Put a water spout guard or cover on the bathtub faucet – there are even some that have a color coded temperature display

Bathrooms

  • Use a vented ceiling fan to keep your bathroom dry
  • To prevent slips, place floor mats and area rugs (with rubberized backings) around the toilet, tub, and sink
  • Install safety bars around the bath tub

Heating and Air Conditioning

  • Opt for plastic air vent covers to prevent your child from putting things inside (avoid metal covers as those can get very hot)
  • Fireplace in your home? Use bumper guards around the brick or stone and/or install a gate!
  • Confirm the utility area is locked safely
  • When it comes to outdoor HVAC units – install fencing and be sure to keep the area locked

Within moments of looking away a child can hurt themselves. We hope the above tips help minimize the dangers that are present in your home.

If you notice anything unusual while baby proofing your space, give the experts at Patterson Plumbing and Heating a call. We’re available for all of your plumbing emergencies and needs!

Home Upgrade Tips – National Curb Appeal Month

Tulip House

Patterson Plumbing is your reliable plumber for ensuring you interior and exterior plumbing works perfectly. The icing on the cake is beautiful curb appeal that gives your a home that WOW factor. Since August is National Curb Appeal Month, we’re leaving you with a few quick upgrading tips to give you a home those driving by stop and stare at:

1. Rotting wooden front porch? Not thank you! Swap it for a new structural balustrade system, weather resistant and complete with all of the parts.

2. Your front door is old and wooden too? Try switching to fiberglass. Not only is it four times more energy efficient, it is also resistant to weather and rust. Consider picking an accent color to help make your home unique.

3. Color, color, and more color. Whether it be adding a custom color roof, shutters or just plants in the front yard, color makes a house pop. Plus, well maintained flower beds give a home a complete and lived in look. Overall, think top down. Start with the roof and work down, considering how you can add warm color to each of the exterior elements on your home.

Keeping Plumbing Projects on Schedule

iStock_000027595340_Medium

When it comes to your home’s functionality and water usage – plumbing should be at the top of your list of priorities. The next time you look to begin a plumbing project, make sure it is completed on time, and on budget.

Unsure about how to get this done? Simply create a schedule to stick to, lay out all necessary costs, materials, and your estimated timeline. Then give your favorite Pueblo area plumbers a call, here at Patterson Plumbing & Heating to discuss your options:

Budget: Depending on the project you are undertaking, the cost can range significantly. Gauge an appropriate budget for prices you are willing to pay for materials, labor, whatever else may come up.

Materials: Some materials may require additional maintenance or tools – thus increasing your budget. We’ll make our recommendations and prepare pricing by the job, not by the hour, so there are no surprises.

Timeline: To make sure your project is on schedule, is to plan a timeline in advance. This way you and your plumber know the expectations for completion way before the project begins.

Keep seasons in mind: While we are available in all seasons for same day service, holiday seasons tend to be busy. Consider the excess use of plumbing systems in your home when family comes to town. Planning a timeline in advance is especially good for these reasons.

Keeping track of these important plumbing project factors will help ensure everything is completed on time and within your budget. The unexpected always has the chance of occurring so leaving some cushion room in your plan can be beneficial as well.

Top Shower head Styles

Whether you’re looking to design a new bathroom, or make over an old one – shower fixtures are important to think about. Each shower head style has its benefits, but the final decision ultimately is based on personal preference.

We know the choices may be overwhelming, so we wanted to highlight some of the most popular shower heads on the market:

Classic – Classic or antique fixtures can add a rustic feel to a bathroom. Mixing the chrome hardware with porcelain handles gives the room a mid-20th century feel. Opting for more antique fixtures is especially attractive in an older home, where designing a vintage themed en suite can reflect the true era the house was built in.

Rainfall – This shower head typically has a wide surface area, with a large number of perforations. This particular style provides the effect of water raining down on you – but without a great deal of pressure.

Shower Panels – Panels consist of several jets or nozzles either on the wall or distributed on the ceiling as well. The result? An all-over bathing experience using modern technology.

Multifunction – In need of a customized bathing experience? This is the shower head for you. Ideal for families, these shower heads let you select gentle settings for the kids, and more high pressured flow for the adults.

Handheld – For help with bathing, a handheld shower head is the best decision. These detach from the wall so you can easily move the shower head to where it needs to be. Water pressure in these heads tends to be higher than that of a rainfall shower head.

Shower heads can sometimes be installed on your own and can easily be a nice bathroom upgrade. For shower head installations that require a bit more work, give the experts at Patterson Plumbing and Heating a call. Our bathroom remodeling division is sure to help guide you in creating the bathroom of your dreams!

Benefits of Summer Drain Cleaning

Ah summer, the time to plan outdoor adventures, nightly campfires or family vacations. It’s also a great time to handle any leftover spring cleaning projects that got swept under the rug. While you may have finished cleaning – some maintenance projects may still remain on your to do list, drain cleaning is often one of them.

Have you noticed your drains have become increasingly slow and are starting to clog? Over time and after multiple uses per day, your drain will have natural build up from debris – all the more reason why scheduling a proper drain cleaning is important.

Not only do clogged drains increase the wait time between showering, doing dishes, etc., due to their slow draining times, but the fact that they are clogged can have serious health effects in itself. Clogged drains easily become a breeding ground for various kinds of unwanted bacteria since slow drainage provides ample moisture for bacteria to thrive and grow.

An annual check of your drain pipes is beneficial to your health AND your wallet since as we know, damaged drains and pipes can quickly lead to costly repairs. So take the steps to protect your home and give the experts at Patterson Plumbing & Heating a call today: 719-544-4922.
