Sleek & Simple

There are many advantages to keeping things simple and streamlined. These designs typically offer a more functional flow that’s pleasing to the eye. Plus, any sinks, tubs, or toilets that follow these guidelines are usually easier to clean, too. If you are looking for something low-maintenance and uncomplicated, then you should stick to pieces without a lot of flash or flair.

The best part about going with a sleek, straightforward renovation plan is that you can easily personalize the space without it getting too busy. Your personality and taste can shine through, and this allows some of your favorite pieces really stand out.

Here at Stadler Plumbing, we have lots of options for you to explore. Give our team a call, and we’d be happy to start developing a plan based on your unique wishes. We look forward to speaking with you soon!

Vibrant & Ornate

If you’re wanting a space that is more ornate, we can help you accomplish that, too! For many, a simple design plan just doesn’t fit with their style preferences, and they may want to turn their bathroom into a picture-perfect oasis for ultimate relaxation. If this sounds right to you, then we can help with that, too!

A lot of times, the tub and shower say it all in these types of renovations. Achieving that perfect space to unwind in after a long day can make all the difference, and we have lots of choices for you to look through. We have steam showers, walk-in bathtubs, and even Jacuzzi-style options, so you are sure to find exactly what you’re looking for, no matter what. We can even work with your space, no matter how big or small, to ensure everything fits in perfectly.

Modern & High-Tech

Interested in fixtures that are modern, high-tech, and energy-efficient? We can definitely point you in the right direction. Trusting in a professional for your bathroom remodel is the best way of ensuring you get the most from every new piece you install, and we are certain to get the job done right, so you experience less waste down the line.

Always Trust A Professional

Are you eager to get your renovation underway? If you’re a big do-it-yourselfer, you may be wondering how easy it might to tackle the project yourself. Some plumbing repairs, like replacing basic hardware or fixing small leaks, can definitely be completed by an experienced homeowner, but when it comes to renovation work, we strongly advise against trying to go solo.

Why is this? Well, for one thing, your remodeling job will need to fit in with the building codes and regulations of the area you live in. Getting the job completed, only to be told most of it needs to be undone, can be disheartening, and you’ll be throwing time, money, and sweat down the drain.

Another thing to worry about is the risk of experiencing even more plumbing problems. Should something be done incorrectly or if an internal problem is lingering that you are unaware of, then just one minor mishap on your part could lead to a lot of water damage. In the end, saving a few bucks on professional care will wind up costing you thousands in home repairs, and you’ll end up needing to call in an expert to eventually help out, anyway.

Why risk it? Rather, call on a crew that is licensed, up-front, mess-free, and here to answer any and all of the questions you have along the way. Stadler Plumbing is ready to serve you!

Ready To Tackle Even More Home Projects?

Once your bathroom work is completed, you may find yourself ready to re-do even more areas of your home. If so, be sure to call on us to help you with it all! From basement renovations to kitchen remodels to water heater installation and more, we can take care of your entire home. We want you to be left with the dream space you’ve always hoped for.

Our family-owned and operated organization is ready to put you first. Reach out now to set up an appointment!

4 Common Winter Plumbing Problems

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! …unless your pipes and plumbing are giving you trouble. Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years it’s hard not to feel joyful and festive in the weeks ahead, but a plumbing problem (or two) can put a damper on any occasion in a hurry. Ensure you and your family have the best holiday season yet by staying aware and educated on the following plumbing problems. Throughout the cold, icy winters in Macomb County, we have to be especially alert!

frozen water pipes

Frozen Pipes

One of the most common issues homeowners experience in the wintertime is frozen pipes. When water freezes, it expands, and this can put a lot of pressure on your plumbing system. Your pipes may seem sturdy and unbreakable, but when ice is pushing on it from the inside, it won’t be long before they finally give in to the strain and burst open.

Now, not only will your water system be temporarily shut down, but you’ll be looking at a lot of water damage throughout your home, as well. Because of this, it is imperative that you locate your shut off valve now, so you can turn your water off as soon as possible in the event of an emergency.

Wondering if you’re more prone to experience frozen pipes? Some homes are simply more vulnerable to this due to the location of their pipes and how well insulated they are. If you have outdoor pipes, for instance, you may want to consider relocating them. Along with this, make certain that all of your pipes in colder areas of the home (like your attic, garage, basement, etc.) are properly insulated.

Other tips for avoiding frozen pipes include:

Keep your heat on at all times and above 55 degrees (even when on vacation).
On especially cold days, leave a trickle of water running in your sinks to keep things moving and prevent water from sitting and freezing.
Keep kitchen and bathroom cabinets open, so that the plumbing is exposed to the warmer indoor temperatures.
Drain and remove any outdoor water sources (hoses, pools, etc.).

If you have frozen pipes, don’t hesitate to reach out to our crew as soon as possible. We’re experienced in this area. We can take appropriate measures for minimizing damage and ensuring your home and family stay better protected, no matter what.

Water Heater Issues

Another thing to be aware of this time of year is potential water heater-related problems. This appliance puts in a lot of overtime when temperatures drop because it takes longer to heat up that extra cold water. Because of this, checking things over ahead of time and ensuring your system is all set and ready to go is a must!

The last thing anyone wants on a frigid day is no hot water, so keep an open eye for the following signs that your water heater is on its last leg: it makes rattling/clunking noises, there is water around the tank (indicating a leak), you’re noticing rusty water, or your water heater is over ten years old.

If it does come time for a new water heater, our crew can set you up. We have tankless options, electric water heaters, high-efficiency units, and more! You’re guaranteed to find the right fit, no matter what. Reach out today to see what we can do for you!

Leaks In Your Water Line

Like we said, your pipes are prone to experience some extra pressure in the winter months. Getting a leak during a blizzard or holiday get together can lead to quite a predicament. Avoid the hassle by ensuring your setup is all taken care of and ready for anything.

Poor water pressure, water stains on the ceiling or walls, water on the floor, constant dripping, and increased water bills can all indicate that you have a bigger problem on your hands, so get our team in to look things over right away if anything is concerning you. The sooner we catch the issue, the better!

Clogged Drains

It’s typical for your drains to experience more use over the holidays. More food gets prepared, and a lot of homes need to accompany extra visitors. Along with the holidays, the cold tends to keep family members inside because of the cold weather. Because of this, your drains are more prone to experience clogs. If this happens before a big meal, this could leave you with a big mess on your hands.

Whether you need your toilets cleared out, help discovering an obstruction in a kitchen pipe, or something else, we are certain our experts can help you out. Reach out with any questions, and we can recommend the right services for your needs!
