Summer is finally here—and this season is a great time to take care of specific plumbing services for your house.

The following are plumbing services that are currently on special until August 31, 2020, and should be on your radar for the upkeep of your home.

Poly B Pipe Replacement

Poly B piping, or Polybutylene piping, was installed in many homes throughout the late 1970s to mid-90s. Home insurance industries, like BCAA, are making changes to insurance policies related to this type of plumbing in homes.

Insurance companies are seeing an increase to the number and cost of water damage claims—and the insurance industry is increasing the deductible for these claims. Poly B has the probability of failure, causing issues like leaks, mold, hairline cracks, in-home flooding, poor water quality (irregular water pressures and chemical sensitivities, like chlorine and mineral levels), loose fittings (poor installment by plumbers), and more.

You should replace your piping altogether. By doing this, you will end up saving thousands of dollars, and ensure that a small problem does not turn into a large and stressful one.

Trenchless Water Main Pull

Have you noticed things like a mushy or soggy lawn, a damp basement, or water seeping through cracks in the foundation of your house? These are signs like your water main may need to be replaced. We suggest going trenchless.

A trenchless water main pull requires zero—NO—digging, which means your front lawn will remain in-tact. This is a huge bonus for going trenchless, and also saves you money.

Kitchen or Bathroom Renovation

A renovation can feel overwhelming and like a huge undertaking. Cost, disruption of schedule, and design decisions will be factors in how, when, and to what shape your renovation will take.

We will work with you to map out each step, schedule, fees, and address any anticipated challenges so you can approach the project with a sense of excitement, instead of anxiety and added stress. It’s time to get the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams!

What better time than spring to finally take on a renovation or remodelling of your bathroom and/or kitchen? Spring is a time of ‘new’, and getting through renovations during this time in order to enjoy them over the summer is a fantastic plan.

A renovation of any size can feel overwhelming and like a huge undertaking. Cost, disruption of schedule, and design decisions will be factors in how, when, and to what shape your renovation will take.

JJ’s Plumbing’s team of experts will work with you to map out each step, schedule, fees, and address any anticipated challenges so you can approach the project with a sense of excitement, instead of anxiety and added stress.

We believe that any renovation is successful when the homeowner is the decision-maker on all factors and there is regular communication throughout the project.

One major bonus in working with us is that we are plumbing experts too, so you know that what goes on behind the walls has the same high-quality finishing as what is shown on the surface.

Bathroom Renovations

Why a bathroom renovation? Like it or not, you spend a lot of time in your bathroom! Why not make it a place you feel is aesthetically pleasing and relaxing? From updating your fixtures, vanity, bathtub, and shower, to choosing new paint colours and new tile, these changes would make a significant difference to how you feel when you begin and end each day. Plus, house guests also use this room quite a bit, if you think about it!

Thinking about putting your home on the market? An updated bathroom is also a selling feature.

Kitchen Renovations

Why a kitchen renovation? Think about when you have company over. What room do people often gather in, no matter how hard you try to set things up in the living room? Your kitchen! You likely spend a lot of time in your kitchen as well, so why not update it to be the most efficient space, set up for you to enjoy cooking, hosting others, and preparing meals for—or with—your family? Similar to—if not even more than—a bathroom renovation, if you are thinking of putting your house on the market, an updated kitchen will increase the value of your home.

  1. Do-it-yourself preventative drain cleaning!

Make it a routine to clean your drains! How? It’s simple. All you need is: ¼ cup of baking soda; ¾ cup of vinegar; and boiling water. Pour the baking soda and vinegar down your kitchen sink drain. It will form a chemical reaction, and break down any soap scum, food, and other substances that stick inside your pipes. Now, boil your water. This will give the baking soda and vinegar some time to break down the substances. After about 10-15 minutes, pour the water down the drain! This will help melt all the grease, and send it along the way. Check out the D-I-Y video if you want to see for yourself: www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=66&v=M9qQu7VvYrA

  1. Replace your Poly-B pipes!

Polybutylene, otherwise known as ‘Poly­B’, is most common in homes from the late 70s to mid 90s and was used because it was inexpensive to buy and install. As time goes on, Poly-B deteriorates and can leak and cause flooding in the home if not replaced. JJ’s Plumbing has you covered! Learn more about replacing Poly-B: https://jjs.plumbing/residential-plumbing/#toggle-id-4

  1. Clean your drainage system

Both fall and winter seasons lead to more debris, like leaves and dirt, to potentially clog drains. It is crucial to maintain your drain tiles by properly cleaning them every 12 to 18 months. Read more blog articles about drain cleaning: https://jjs.plumbing/category/drain-cleaning/

Kitchen (and bathroom) renos are the most common renovations in the Greater Vancouver area. Why? These rooms can become dated quickly, and are also high-traffic areas in the house. Think about it: where do most of your guests hang out when you are hosting? Often it is in the kitchen — no matter how hard you try to get them to socialize in the living room!

When looking at renovation trends, new kitchen designs are frequently a hot topic in home design magazines and online publications—often on the front cover—making it impossible not to compare with your existing kitchen, especially if a reno has been on your mind. And, most importantly, you want to feel good about a space in your home that your family and friends spend a great deal of time in together.

From updating your appliances and kitchen sink/faucet, to changing the functionality of your kitchen by introducing a practical island or making it more of an open concept, these changes can significantly affect the way you feel about your home — in a positive way.
