Get ready and set for part 2!
Why wait for everything to turn to custard before giving us a call?
Most Wellingtonians dwell in older homes. It's a fact, and while it gives our cool little capital lots of character, it can be a nightmare for costly repairs as we work to keep these pokey old homes up and running.
It probably doesn't help the situation, too, that our council keeps us on our toes with high-standards and strict laws to adhere to. For an old home with old plumbing, this means lots of time, effort, and money.
As with pretty much anything in life, the trick to keeping our quirky old homes happy is regular maintenance from a local professional plumber in Wellington. Regular maintenance is a cost you can certainly afford to cover when you weigh it up against the alternative: extremely expensive emergency call-outs and repairs.
Food for thought: an example of the cost comparison
Paying for a plumbing checkup won't set you back a whole lot, especially if your plumber finds nothing majorly wrong with your old drains. Because there is always a chance of something being wrong, you can pretty much guarantee that, if left neglected for long enough, drains are going to start misbehaving.
Sometimes it isn't the fault of your drains, too. Tree roots, earthquakes, rainy seasons and even basic wear and tear can factor in to the ongoing integrity of your drain.
So, banking on a good Wellington plumber's regular check-ups, you'll be able to save yourself the dramatic costs that come if drains are left unchecked until an emergency evidently happens.
The costs of a Wellington plumbing emergency skyrocket when:
- flooding damages walls and carpet
- flooding damages furniture
- old drains crack and require dramatic excavation to uncover, repair and/or replace
- bathrooms are unsafe and unhealthy and require total 'makeovers'
- water quality is compromised by ancient plumbing and renders your home unlivable until plumbing is replaced or repaired
Emergencies are easy to avoid. No really, they are! All it takes is a quick call to the team at Maxey, and trusting that we'll be able to keep your house happy, healthy, and emergency-free.
