How To Find A Qualified Plumber


There are some things in life you just don’t skimp on. Your mattress, car maintenance, and plumbing services are perfect examples of these things.

If you try to save a few dollars by hiring an unqualified plumber, it will wind up costing you more in the long run. Shoddy plumbing work will always come back to bite you in the form of future repairs and damages.

Save yourself the time and hassle by hiring a good plumber who can get the job done right the first time. Here are a few tips to help you find one:

iStock_000043081200_Small

  • Ask friends and family. If you have a friend, family member, or relative that has recently had plumbing work done, ask them if they can recommend anyone.
  • Turn to online resources. If you don’t know anyone who can recommend a plumber, the internet certainly can. Resources such as Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau can help you find a qualified plumber in your area.
  • Look for licenses and experience. Who would you trust more – a fully-licensed plumber with 20 years of experience, or a random, unlicensed “contractor” performing his first job?
  • Upfront pricing is a MUST. When it comes to hiring any kind of contractor for your home, choose a someone who provides up-front pricing. An estimate is great, but paying triple what you were originally quoted for isn’t.
  • Do they guarantee their work? Warranties are another important factor to consider. If a plumber isn’t confident in their own work, how can they expect you to be?

If you are looking for a qualified, reputable plumber in Colorado, look no further than Patterson Plumbing & Heating! For the past 20+ years, homeowners in Pueblo and the surrounding area have come to us for our superior plumbing services. We offer up-front pricing, stand behind all of our work, and have an A+ accreditation with the Better Business Bureau. See what we can do for you – call us today at (719) 544-4922.

Budget Friendly Bathroom Updates

13050800783_f08a608d10_z

You may think giving your bathroom an upgrade is a costly project. To some extent, it could be – but there are plenty of affordable ways you could give your bathroom a makeover regardless if you rent or own your home.

Take a look at the below budget friendly updates you can complete in a day’s time, no demo required:

  • Repaint surfaces – You’d be surprised at what a fresh coat of paint can do! Give your bathroom an easy refresh by changing up the wall color or painting over your cabinet doors. All you have to do here is remove drawers, doors, and hardware and sand down any loose or peeling paint before getting started. Follow with priming, painting, and reassembling – as detailed here »
  • Switch out hardware – Basic hardware, like toilet paper holders or towel bars, can be the first to really show age. If yours are looking a bit drab, change out any bars, hooks, knobs, etc. to something different to give your space a new feel (for minimal cost). You may want to purchase new hardware from the same company and collection to maintain a unified look.
  • Redo your floors – Vinyl flooring is not only extremely durable it’s also water resistant and requires little maintenance. And with installation as simple as peel and stick – why not give it a try! Most vinyl flooring has an adhesive that can easily go on top of your current floors – no demo required.
  • Accessorize – Now that you’ve changed up some colors, look for some accessories to match. New floor rugs, shower curtains, towels, or window treatments can easily make your space feel different.
  • Add storage – Increase your bathroom’s functionality by adding some additional shelving units above your toilet or under your sink. This is a good way to help de-clutter any counter space that could be an eyesore.

If these small updates just won’t cut it, contact the experts here at Patterson Plumbing & Heating. Our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath® of Pueblo, will work with you to ensure your bathroom meets all of your remodeling needs.

Make Your Bathroom a Safer Place

bathroom-image-5

Though we may try and fight it, aging is inevitable – and if you plan on staying in your home for the long run, it’s important to pre-plan for your future comfort. Easily make your bathroom a safer place for years to come with the below updates:

Create the right lighting – Glare is a common issue in the bathroom and sconces on each side of the mirror are easier on the eyes than overhead lighting. Consider increasing the amount of natural light in the bathroom by installing a skylight or updating a window. And finally, be sure your shower area is well lit!

Install grab bars – We know what you’re thinking – those heavy-looking bars that are found in commercial bathrooms should go in the home? Not quite. Grab bars now include caddy shelves, towel rods, and toilet paper holders that will do double duty without being an eye sore. Choose fixtures to go along with the bathroom’s aesthetic and install properly so they can support weight if used. Place them at the entrance to the shower or tub, inside the shower, and near the toilet.

Install nonslip floors – Slick tile isn’t safe for anyone. Since the floor is bound to get wet, look for slip-resistant tile or vinyl. The more textured the tile, the less slippery it is. Additionally, ceramic tiles have adopted a slip-resistance number system – so choose tiles with a higher number for better slip resistance.

Consider your tub and shower options – Getting in and out of the bathtub can be difficult for people with mobility issues. Walk-tubs including a door to enter and exit from may be a good choice for your family otherwise a curbless shower stall can be easily accessible. Someone using a walker can easily enter and exit the shower, and parents can conveniently bath their young children or pet. Install a handheld shower head with at least a 6 foot long hose for reach and a fold up seat should it be needed.

Our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath® of Pueblo, will work with you to ensure your bathroom meets all of your remodeling needs.

5 Tips for Bathroom Sharing

iStock_000021905663_Small

With back-to-school season rapidly approaching, bathroom sharing is on the horizon – making the morning rush before work or school quite an ordeal. Avoid a war zone in your ensuite this fall, check out the below ways to make bathroom coexistence easier:

1. Make cabinets do more. Stay organized by keeping everything behind closed doors. Look into different organizing tools for drawers and readjust your cabinet shelves to make sure everything fits properly and has its own designated space. Speaking of designated space…

2. Be savvy when sorting. Give each person in your household a space of their own in the bathroom – a cabinet, a drawer, a pull out basket, etc. This way you try to avoid too many people jostling each other when getting ready.

3. Get rid of the unnecessary. The bathroom is prime real estate, take out the extraneous items. Bulky hampers may be better off placed in a bedroom closet to save space, toilet paper and additional towels can be stored elsewhere as well.

4. Create a schedule. Getting your family or roommates into a bathroom sharing schedule can certainly help making the morning rush a better experience for everyone. Have everyone use the bathroom at certain times and ensure they leave the space as they found it.

5. Consider two. If your bathroom is big enough and you are looking to remodel – consider upgrading to double sinks. Not only will you have two sinks to utilize when brushing teeth, shaving, or washing hands, but you also will have additional counter room and storage.

If you’re interested in upgrading your bathroom, contact the experts here at Patterson Plumbing & Heating. Our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath® of Pueblo, will work with you to ensure your bathroom meets all of your remodeling needs.

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.

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.

January is National Bath Safety Month

National

January is National Bath Safety Month, a perfect time to assess your current bathroom situation and ensure the proper precautions are taken to prevent slips and falls. Bath safety is not only important to keep in mind for kids, but our senior citizens as well. Here are a few tips to help make your bathroom safer for everyone in your family:

  • Install non-slip strips or mats in your bathtub or replace old ones that seem to be losing their effectiveness.
  • Affix grab bars or safety handles to assist when stepping in and out of the shower/tub
  • Keep a non-slip rug or mat on the floor at the entry of the shower/tub
  • Keep your bathroom well-lit and cleared to prevent losing your footing
  • Beware of sharp edges! Use a rubber cover for the faucet heads and keep towels covering metal rails.
  • In case of emergencies, consider keeping a portable phone in your bathroom

Now may be the time to upgrade yourself to a walk-in shower. Stepping into and out of a bathtub presents an increased risk of falling, walk-in showers skip this problem all together! If this is something that sparks your interest, give us a call! Our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath® of Pueblo, will work with you to ensure your bathroom meets all of your safety needs so that you can enjoy your daily activities with peace of mind.

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!

How to Prioritize Your Remodeling Projects

Bathroom Remodeling, Replacement & Installation For Pueblo, Colorado Area Homes

You know your home is a big investment, and the best way to care for it is by keeping up with necessary repairs. Once you are sure all the parts of the home that are vital to keeping it operating properly (roof, doors, pipes, etc) are in tip-top shape, then you can begin your wish list.

This wish list should prioritize what you’d like added to your home. Is there a baby on the way and you need extra room? Or on the other hand, have your children flown the coop? Are you getting your house ready for sale? This wish list should reflect the answers to these questions so your remodel really fits your family’s needs.

Once this is done, get estimates for everything and set yourself a budget to be sure all costs are accounted for. From there, you can decide which items on your wish list you can begin work on. Kitchen and bathroom renovations typically get you the most bang for your buck.
