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:

  • 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.

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.

5 Tips for Bathroom Sharing

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.

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

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?

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.

Tips for Renovating your Bathroom

design-your-bathroom
Are you looking for a change? Thinking about selling your home? Research suggests that kitchens and bathrooms are two of the best rooms to invest in if you’re looking to make improvements or make more money when you sell. Check out these tips on how to update your bathroom without breaking the bank:
  1. Paint your bathroom: Re-painting your bathroom is a quick and inexpensive fix if you’re looking for a change. Painting can brighten the room or change the mood to make other fixtures pop!
  2. Update accessories: If you haven’t made any changes recently, updating your accessories could do the trick. Consider updating to a new and improved bathroom mirror as a way to complement other fixtures while still including your personality into the design. Choose between a framed mirror to fit over your bathroom vanity or even build your own!
  3. Update your bathroom fixtures: Although bathroom hardware can be replaced at a low cost, they have the potential to really make your bathroom stand out. While they may be simple, decisions like choosing between a free-standing or mounted towel rack could make all the difference in how you and guests perceive the room.
  4. Update your vanity: Updating your vanity may be the way to go if you’re looking to completely transform your whole bathroom. If your shower or bathtub isn’t in need of fixing, updating your cabinetry or countertops may be the exact update you’re looking for.
  5. Replace your light fixtures: Small bathrooms usually don’t get that much natural light, which makes your light fixtures extremely important. No matter what mood you’re going for, your bathroom should always give off as much light as possible to aid you in your daily tasks.
  6. Buy new bathroom linens: If you’re using the same bathmat and shower curtain from your last update, it’s time to get new ones! Towels and bathroom linens should be changed often, especially if your home is humid and prone to mold and mildew. Changing your linens is also an easy way to spice up the room with different colors and patterns.
  7. Add vintage or re-purposed storage: Most bathrooms are lacking storage, but if space allows, add a vintage shelf or a wire basket to store everyday items like towels and soaps.
Deciding on how to update your bathroom can be a difficult task, especially if you’re torn between what designs you’re looking for. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath, and let us guide you on how you can have your dream home!
