Are you wanting to do a bathroom upgrade?

Do you have questions about upgrading?

At Next Level Plumbing we have a lot of experience upgrading bathrooms and kitchens in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. From small upgrades to complete remodels, we have done it all. This means we are in a good position to be able to help you through the plumbing related portion of your project.

While every situation is different, there are a few tips that can help you in the planning stage.

One of the most important things to keep in mind is this: if you are planning on moving the fixtures (sinks, toilet, shower) by any significant amount, it will require a GC (general contractor).

  • If you are really changing up your bathroom, plan on getting a GC involved, or choose to do the work of the GC and pull your own permits.
  • If you only move the shower around, or change a tub to a shower you don’t need a GC. (Certain exceptions may apply).
  • If you plan to remodel the kitchen with all new cabinets, this does not require a GC or even permits (in most cases).
  • If your remodel is relatively basic and involves just installing new fixtures, faucets and/or painting, that is the simplest and usually cheapest way to update your bathroom without getting too involved.

Along with all the above advice, we want to remind you that each local jurisdiction makes their own rules and not everything said above applies in the same way to all jurisdictions. As always, this is general advice, and we recommend having us come out and give you a free quote and consultation on the best course of action for your particular upgrade or remodel.
