New Construction Plumbing & Home Remodeling Services
Construction plumbing is part art, part science, and 100% know-how.
It usually demands the resources and expertise of a larger company like Orange Coast Plumbing. We’ve been around since 1977, and in that time, we’ve installed new plumbing for:
- Homes of all sizes
- Apartment complexes
- Office buildings and commercial spaces
- And more
Plumbing remodeling is closely related, where we may create a completely new plumbing system in an older space. But remodeling also includes smaller jobs — just a bathroom or kitchen, for instance.
New Construction Plumbing: What Makes It Different
When plumbers repipe a home or commercial building, they’ll make improvements to the existing system, but they won’t change it wholesale. They’ll mostly adhere to an existing layout.
With construction plumbing, plumbers work closely with other building contractors who follow an architect’s plan or engineer’s diagram. Plumbing decisions are usually left to the plumbers, who consider all fixtures and design the best system possible.
For instance, they might integrate a passive hot water return system or pipe the building to allow for future expansion.
Here’s where experience comes in: our plumbers, who have seen and done it all, can anticipate potential problems and design an efficient, flexible, and trouble-free system that will serve you well for many years to come.
Depending on the size of the plumbing job, Orange Coast can dispatch a team of experienced experts to complete the project in record time, but with the highest quality craftsmanship.
Plumbing Remodeling; Kitchen & Bathroom Renovation
We can remodel your kitchen or bathroom from concept to completion. Or we can work with your architect or interior designer to create the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams.
OCP hires talented artists who have redesigned dozens of homes, offices, and commercial spaces.
For plumbing remodeling jobs, we may:
- Completely repipe portions of a home or business
- Replace fixtures and toilets with modern models that use less water
- Move fixtures or pipes around a kitchen to create more counter space
- Integrate tankless water heaters instead of traditional tanks
- Make small adjustments to venting systems, valves, drainage, and other parts of the existing system
- And much more
Again, experience matters. We’ll design the most efficient system for your home or business, install the correct piping and fixtures for efficiency and longevity, and work with other contractors to get your space back to normal as soon as possible.
All estimates are free. So if you’re thinking about remodeling your home or upgrading your plumbing, please call us for a no-risk assessment.
Repiping replaces existing pipes in a home or business, including water pipes and sewer lines. A complete repiping involves the main line and smaller branches connecting to it.
Age is the most common reason for repiping. Another reason is home or business renovation, which exposes piping in the walls and around fixtures. Easy access to pipes lets you upgrade them to save money and trouble in the long run.
Benefits of Repiping
- Improved water quality: New pipes mean clean, fresh water for drinking, cooking, and bathing.
- Increased water pressure: You’ll be able to shower and do laundry at the same time.
- Long-term savings: The initial investment for repiping is higher than a plumbing repair, but you’ll save money by not having to pay for repeated repairs.
Frequently Asked Questions about Remodeling & Replumbing
How much does it cost to replumb a bathroom?
The cost of replumbing a bathroom depends on the size and complexity of the job. Generally, it can range from $500 to $2,000 or more.
How long does it take to replumb a house?
It usually takes 1-3 days to repipe an entire house, depending on the size of the home and the complexity of the job.
Can plumbing work be done while I am in the house?
Yes, some work can be done while you are living in your home or business. Our team will let you know if any area needs to be vacated during repiping or remodeling jobs. We’ll also take all necessary safety precautions to keep your space comfortable and secure.
Do you offer remodeling services?
Yes, we offer both residential and commercial remodeling services. We can replace fixtures, adjust venting systems and valves, repipe portions of your home or business, design completely new plumbing systems, and much more. Contact us for a free estimate!
Does replumbing increase home value?
Yes, repiping can increase the value of your home. You’ll be able to offer buyers newer fixtures, better water pressure, and reliable pipes that won’t burst. This is especially true if you live in an older home that was built before modern plumbing standards were established. In some cases, a previous owner can be held liable for flood or mold damage from old, corroded pipes, so repiping is a smart investment.
When should I repipe my home or business?
It depends on the overall condition of your pipes. In some cases, we may repipe just a kitchen or bathroom. But if your plumbing is old and degraded, we may have to repipe the entire building. Trenchless pipe repair and cured-in-place piping are less invasive than traditional methods. We’ll be able to determine what the job involves once we check your plumbing.
What type of pipes do you use for plumbing remodeling?
We use copper only for water pipes and internal piping. It tends to be the most reliable and durable material for Orange County, CA conditions. We no longer use PVC for internal piping, having witnessed the damage that rats, squirrels, and other uninvited guests do to plastic.
Do you offer guarantees on your plumbing services or the materials you use?
Yes, we back every job with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. We also warrant labor and materials, but each warranty depends on the type of job we perform. Our certified plumbers discuss any warranties in detail when they offer an estimate for work.
