Jacksons Trusted Plumbing Experts

Professional Tub/Shower Replacement

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.

Aspen Plumbing Services has been helping people fix and install bathroom fixtures in Jackson area since 1981. 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.

Tips From The Bathroom Plumbing Experts

When it comes to showers and tubs, our team of highly skilled and trained plumbing experts have years of experience and can provide you with all of the information that you need regarding your bathtubs, showers, etc. Below you will find helpful information, but feel free to call our team any time with any questions or concerns that you may have!

Bathtub Replacement

People 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 Albion or Jackson:

  1. It’s Outdated: Almond-colored tubs may have been all the rage once upon a time, but they’ve fallen out of fashion. If you find your current tub is an eyesore, replacing it is often the only option. You can call (517) 750-9913 to get a free quote and a few recommendations for tub brands that fit taste and budget.
  2. You Need to Adapt Your Bathroom: If you’re no longer as spry as you used to be—or you just added some children to your home—your bathroom may need a new tub. Our plumbers can help you select a new tub that fits your needs. This includes tubs with low sides and seats or grab bars.
  3. Extensive Repairs Are Needed: Look at your current tub. Is it full of chips and cracks? If so, it’s likely time to install a new one. Though band-aid solutions are available, these often just kick the can a few months down the road. In many cases, a few visits from a tub repairman will outweigh the cost of replacing the old tub.
  4. Enhanced Comfort: For many homeowners, a bathtub is a more of a want and less of a need. That’s why many homes don’t have one at all. If that’s the case with yours, installing a new tub not only increases house values but can also help promote healthy relaxation.

Professional Tub/Shower Replacement

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.

The money you save on DIY tub installation in Jackson isn’t worth the potential damage you can do to your home, bathroom, or pride. So, skip the stress! Call the professional plumbing contractors at Aspen Plumbing instead.

Improving your bathroom doesn’t have to be a major headache, especially when you hire a professional. Just kickback and leave your tub replacement or installation to our local, professional plumbers. With us on the job, bathroom remodeling is a cinch. We work with all tub brands and know how to install any model including those with grab bars and doors. For a quote on tub replacement in Jackson, give a call at (517) 750-9913.

Home Maintenance Plans To Keep Your Plumbing Equipment Running Strong

Frequently Asked Questions

While chemical drain cleaners are acceptable in certain situations, we discourage using them frequently or as a first solution. These chemicals are extremely toxic and can eat away at pipes if overused. Ask us about safer alternatives to deter and clear clogs.
Our plumbers have access to tools and materials that can clear up any clog without damaging your pipes. And, if your home has recurring clogs, only a real Jackson plumber can get rid of them for good!

A lot of plumbing problems are easy to spot, but leaks have a tendency to go unnoticed. This is because they often start small and can go unnoticed for months or years. They can also hide under floors, above ceilings, and behind walls, making them more challenging to find. Here are a few signs you may have a leak:

  • Rapidly climbing water bills
  • Your water meter ticks even when you aren’t using water
  • A musty smell or signs of mold become visible
  • Discoloration and dampness occurs near tubs and toilets

If you see any of these signs, don’t panic. Call Aspen Plumbing at (517) 750-9913 and schedule an appointment instead!

If your shower pressure is low when other fixtures are running, you may have an insufficient plumbing system. If the problem persists when only the shower is running, there may be a leaking pipe somewhere.
 

There are a number of simple ways to downsize your water bill. These include:

  • Taking shorter showers
  • Turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth
  • Only running the washing machine or dryer when you have a full load
  • Installing low-flow showerheads and toilets
  • Adding a brick to your toilet tank to reduce the amount of water used per flush

If you try all these things and your water bill keeps climbing, you may have a leak in your home. Call (517) 750-9913, so one of our plumbers can investigate.

The average water heater in Jackson lasts between 8 and 12 years. Note that this applies to gas water heaters; electric ones can last a little longer. However, the signs that a new water heater is needed don’t relate to fuel source. These include:

  • Dark or rusty water
  • No hot water
  • Flooding and dampness around your water heater

In the Jackson area, it’s not uncommon for temperatures to dip below 32°F. When that happens, pipes can freeze and burst. Fixing frozen pipes is one of the most expensive plumbing repairs you can have. Fortunately, there are steps homeowners can take to prevent this catastrophe. These include:

  • Opening doors and cabinets on cold days
  • Insulating pipes inside and outside your home
  • Keeping a faucet dripping
  • Quickly patching any cracks
  • Never set your thermostat lower than 55°F
