My Plumbing Wish List.

I think I speak for other plumbers across the country when I say, “I wish I were there to tell you what NOT to do before you had to call me”.  Plumbers from coast to coast will tell you that their area home owners make mistakes that end up costing them hundreds of dollars or more trying to fix their own plumbing.

Here are a few tips I would like to impart –

1.  Don’t automatically reach for the Drano.  Chemicals rarely do the job.
2.  Please don’t think of your toilet as a garbage can.
3.  Do not go searching for the main water valve.
4.  Stop with the drop-in tank toilet fresheners already.
5.  Your water heater is past its expiration date…just acknowledge it!

These and many other helpful plumbing tips might keep a major plumbing problem from occurring.  I just want you to know that I will be there when you need me.  I am Snohomish, WA area plumber Shawn Allen.  I have been here for decades and you can count on me in the future.  Just give me a call at (425) 367-4744.

Don’t Ignore your Bathroom(s).

These are some of the most visited rooms in our home, but we tend NOT to pay as much attention to them as, say our kitchen, living room, or family room.  Maybe it is time to pay some mind to these frequently used portions of your castle.  You can devote as much money as you want toward remodeling, just make sure that it is done right the first time!

Here is a partial checklist to follow –

1.  Leave the plumbing where it is already located.
2.  Look for flooring alternatives.
3.  Consider putting in open shelves.
4.  Go to the light…pay attention to the lighting.
5.  Make sure the paint keeps the area bright and inviting.

There is a great master plumber in the Seattle area who is also very adept with refurbishing projects.  He is Snohomish area bathroom remodeling expert Shawn Allen.  Why not give him a call before you take the next step and share with him your hopes and dreams for the project?  His phone number is (425) 367-4744.
