9 Plumbing Improvements That Will Increase the Value of Your Home

9 Plumbing Improvements That Will Increase the Value of Your Home
19th September 2013

Your home is one of the biggest investments that you'll ever make, and you want to ensure that when it comes time to someday sell it, you can capitalise on its value. With bathrooms being a home necessity, plumbing improvements are one of the most effective ways of raising the value of a home. Here are nine improvements that you can make to boost the value of your home:

1. Pipe Upgrades

If your home is older, having the pipes replaced can cause a major increase in the appraised value of your home. This is because the older the plumbing becomes, the more likely it is to begin to require repairs. Some homeowners’ find that they receive 2.5 times the amount that they invest in full plumbing upgrades in increased home value.

2. New Bathroom Plumbing Fixtures

Bathroom design trends change as rapidly as fashion trends, and in just 10 years, a bathroom can become to look dated. By just replacing sinks, tubs and toilets with newer models, you can greatly increase the appeal and value of your home.

3. Roof Replacements

Just like plumbing systems, roofs become more likely to need repairs the older that they become. A roof plumber can install a Colourbond roof in areas that have suffered wear and tear and boost the value of your home.

4. Upgraded Tubs

Buyers are attracted to bathrooms with luxury tubs. Upgrading to a bigger size or installing a spa-jetted tub can enhance your home's value instantly.

5. Eco-Friendly Upgrades

Nowadays, more and more people are becoming interested in green architecture. To appeal to the greener market, make plumbing improvements that conserve water and energy. Things like dual-flush cisterns and solar water heaters can have an impact on home value.

6. Clear Attic Ventilation Systems

Experts state that improvements that allow more light to enter a home, raises its perceived value. Having a clear attic ventilation system installed by a roof plumber makes a home brighter, while also helping to protect the roof from heat-related damage.

7. Adding an Extra Bathroom

Converting a small closet to a bathroom or adding a bathroom ensuite will boost the selling price of your home, particularly if you currently only have one bathroom.

8. Updating Kitchen Fixtures

While counter tops and cabinets are what most people think of when they consider remodelling a kitchen, a new kitchen sink with designer taps can also have a big impact on the look and functionality of a kitchen.

9. New Hot Water System

Adding one of the latest innovations in hot water systems, such as a Smart Water system or a continuous flow system can make your home more appealing.

Which of the above plumbing improvements would be most appealing to you if you were shopping for a new home?
