Kitchen and bathroom renovations can help to improve the value of your home and ensure your home remains in peak condition for the long-term.

But one of the leading challenges for many homeowners is completing the renovation process affordably and in a quick timeframe.

At Gold Medal Plumbing and Drain, we understand that home renovations can be a daunting task, which is why we’ve created this blog to help you started. If you have plumbing questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to our skilled team.


As the year moves on and we get closer to the summer, the leading renovation teams become busier.

This can make it more difficult to book construction work in and around your home.

And so, it’s important to take on the process as early as possible in the late spring/early summer.

Make sure you review the local companies and get quotes from a number of experienced professionals to ensure you have the ideal platform to an effective renovation process.


An area that homeowners have control over in terms of making their renovation work a success is the working environment for the renovation team.

Make sure that you create the ideal space in which to work for all renovation team members. For example, you should ensure all personal belongings are removed from the bathroom and kitchen space.

And introduce yourself to the team leader at the beginning of the project so that they can come to you if they have any questions or concerns along the way.

This will help the project to move forward seamlessly and will ensure you reduce any confusion in your communications with the renovation team.


One of the most common mistakes that homeowners make during the renovation process is they don’t consider their costs well in the future.

They think only of the immediate value of the renovation work.

It’s important that additions to the bathroom and kitchen hold their value in the long-term.

And that’s why you should carefully consider additions that increase your home energy efficiency, during your home update.

For example, you might consider adding high-efficiency dishwashers and low flow toilets to the home during the renovation.

This will help you to save thousands on energy use in the coming years.
