For many, the bathtub represents a relaxing mini-getaway. It’s the place we go to wash off the stresses of a busy day. But there are times when this sanctuary is taken away from us. A dropped shampoo can crack the area near the drain, and time leaves your tub full of cracks and weak spots. When these things happen, it’s often more economical to replace your bathtub than to try and repair it. And, if you don’t already have a bathtub, it’s best to have the help of a professional plumber to install one.
LaVergne's Plumbing and Heating has been helping people fix and install bathtubs in the Bellingham area since 1951. In that time, we’ve gained a reputation as a trustworthy, knowledgeable plumbing company. With ample experience with bathtub installation and other bathroom remodeling tasks, we invite you to give us a call. With us, there’s no reason every day can’t be a spa day.
Humans spend a lot of time in their bathrooms and, for many, as much of that time as possible in their shower or tub. But as our life changes, our existing bathroom can cease to fit our needs. Below are the reasons most people reach out to us for bathtub replacement or installation in Mount Vernon or Bellingham:
Installing or replacing your tub is a serious undertaking. It’s a complicated process that typically requires the expertise of a licensed plumber. Typically, bathtub installation is one part of a larger bathroom remodel. In these situations, you’ll typically be working with a general contractor, plumber, and electrician. Allowing them to coordinate tasks together can make for a smoother remodel.
More than once, our staff have gotten calls from customers who tried to install their own bathtub. They usually followed a step-by-step guide or watched a few YouTube videos. But they missed a part or lack the tools to get everything connected. Now, they’ve got water leaking through their ceiling, a tub that refuses to drain, or a wobbly tub lacking major support pieces. Now, they’re calling us for help and paying more out of pocket to do it.
