Plumbing Upgrades That Will Up the Value of Your Home

Plumbing Upgrades That Will Up the Value of Your Home

Purchasing a house is one the biggest investments you make. When the time comes to sell it, you want to get a good selling price. There are many ways you can add significant value to your house, and bathroom upgrades and other plumbing replacements are a good way to accomplish it. We at SPS Plumbers provide excellent residential plumbing solutions to our clients. Here is a list of plumbing upgrades that can boost the value of your home:

  1. Upgrading Pipes

Upgrading existing old pipes with new ones can considerably increase the value of your property. Older pipes and other residential plumbing installations need constant repairs over time which affect the sale value of your house. Many sellers that replace all dated pipes in their homes are able to recover more than double the cost of the installations at point of sale.

  1. Plumbing Fixtures for Bathrooms

Bathroom design trends change constantly. Something you installed 5 years ago can look dated and may not be appealing to buyers today. This doesn’t work in your favour. Consider replacing sinks, faucets, showers and toilets with the latest models. This is a huge improvement and definitely adds to your bathroom’s overall appeal and the value of your home.

  1. Upgrading tubs

Luxury tubs are what buyers are most attracted to. Upgrade your existing bathroom by installing a bigger tub or a fancy spa-jetted tub. Not only will you enjoy using it, but this can instantly increase the value of your house too.

  1. Eco-Friendly Plumbing Installations

Modern day buyers are interested in eco-friendly installations and many people are focused on going green. There are a number of energy and water-efficient plumbing installations that can make your bathroom spaces more eco-friendly. This helps appeal to the ‘green’ market. By installing plumbing systems that help conserve energy and water, you do your bit for the environment and they provide great return on investment too. Systems like the dual-flush cisterns or solar heaters have a positive impact on the price of your house.

  1. Extra Bathrooms

By converting spacious closets into bathrooms you can add to the value of your selling price, especially if you house has a single bathroom. Having another bathroom installed is another option you can consider.

  1. Kitchen Fixture Upgrades

Many people feel that upgrading existing kitchen cabinets or counter tops will have an impact on the value of their house. While those are good options, remodelling the kitchen with designer taps completely changes the look of the space and has an effect on its functionality as well.

  1. Hot Water Installations

Consider adding new hot water installations. A continuous flow system or a Smart Water installation adds to energy-efficiency of your home which can be appealing to buyers.
