Plumbing Installation and Repairs in Dallas, TX
Ricochet Construction is recognized as a Dallas-area leader in all forms of construction and remodeling for homes, multi-family rental properties, large apartment communities, and condominiums. We cover a wide range of services, and our construction and repair expertise comes from years of working directly with Texas residents and rental owners. In this article we will cover some of the major issues that crop up when dealing with plumbing in both homes and large scale multi-family communities.
Do You Need a Plumber or a General Contractor Who Does Plumbing?
While many people initially think of “plumber” or plumbing company when they have plumbing needs, the truth is that general contractors such as Ricochet are just as qualified, and often more diversified, than full-on plumbing companies. General contractors employ crews that have a diverse range of expertise, including framing, roofing, finish, electrical, and, yes, plumbing. We can often handle plumbing needs within our normal scope of work, which can lower the cost of the work, as well as move it along more quickly, since we don’t have to arrange schedules with a separate company. When a plumbing job goes beyond our scope, we work with a wide range of highly credentialed subcontractors who we’ve known in most cases for many years. We can ensure that their work is done when they say it will be done, and always as the highest standards of quality.
Planning for Plumbing Work
For existing multifamily building, plumbing issues can make spaces practically unlivable until they’re fixed. There are three areas that need to be planned no matter what type of plumbing work needs to be done: (1) making sure plumbing is originally installed correctly, so that avoidable issues don’t arise down the road; (2) inspecting and maintaining plumbing structures on a regular basis to avoid emergency situations; and (3) having plans in place for dealing with plumbing “emergencies” in quick, effective ways.
At Ricochet, we make sure that every installation we do is done right. This means putting out the effort it takes to deal with irregular issues that come up, and never moving onto the next step until we’re sure everything is set exactly as it should be so that problems don’t occur ten years from now that were set in motion during the original installation. We also inspect plumbing during any job we do, because we know what to look for that will reveal issues that can be taken care of cost effectively if they’re found soon enough. And we are well-prepared to respond to a range of plumbing problems as soon as you contact us about what is happening to your property.
Plumbing in Large, Multifamily Communities
As we mentioned at the beginning of this post, plumbing issues can cripple a building, and absolutely must be dealt with in effective, timely ways. This is especially true of large rental communities. Problems in one unit can mean shutting the water off for all units in a building until the issue is resolved. And plumbing problems in rental units often happen at a large scale, which can mean that they are very expensive to repair.
Ricochet has specialized in large scale work since our beginnings, and we are very comfortable working on multiple locations to resolve plumbing issues. We are also very aware of residents’ privacy and comfort, and we adjust around schedules so that we don’t disturb residents too early, or stay too late into the evening, when families are using their homes and don’t want to deal with construction issues.
