A room or entire home remodel are exciting projects.  When planning a bath or kitchen remodel, Raymark recommends hiring a general contractor. A smaller plumbing project may not require a general contractor. In this case, call us to schedule a plumber for assistance.

Your General Contractor

The general contractor is the project manager and the liaison between all of the professionals hired. For this reason, your contractor is key. As you know, the professional builder, electrician, plumber, tiler, and painter all work collaboratively.  In order to minimize expenses, time, and dependencies on others, scheduling must be coordinated between all parties.  

To that end, your contractor is responsible for scheduling these resources and for ordering the materials needed. The contractor will plan, schedule, and ensure all work is coordinated seamlessly so that the finished results match your plan. In addition, he or she must complete the remodel within your budget and in the planned time frame. 


Raymark Plumbing and Sewer has worked with thousands of Seattle homeowners and their contractors over the last 40 years. Together, we’ve created beautiful and efficient bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, powder rooms, outdoor shower and pool rooms, and more.

Tips for Planning a Remodel

  • A remodel should never be an emergency.  We recommend you plan and plan. (And plan.)
  • Visit kitchen and bathroom showrooms. Note what you like and dislike about them.  It is equally important to tell your contractor and architect what you want and don’t want. The planning stage is the time to ask questions and make changes.
  • Note prices. Many faucets, sinks, and toilets come in good, better, and best models. Choose the ones which fit into your budget.  You can change out a toilet or a faucet in 10 years if you want to upgrade.
  • Consider under counter and over counter sinks
  • Determine if new cabinets can be installed or the old ones can be refurbished
  • Consider the location.  The project becomes larger if the existing kitchen and bath plumbing will be moved to a new location.
  • Work with your contractor to schedule Raymark Plumbing and Sewer to help with your Seattle area remodel. If you don’t have a contractor, we can recommend one that we work with on a regular basis.

Remodel FAQs

  • When in the remodel process should I schedule a plumber?

    The plumber can begin in the planning stage to make recommendations on valves, pipes, and fixtures. 

    They start work at the “rough-in” stage, to set the sink, tub and shower valves, and the toilets. 

    Then, after countertops, vanities, tile, and shower surrounds are installed, the plumber returns to install the faucets and fixtures.

  • Why do I need a contractor? I know exactly what our remodel will look like and how long it should take.

    Even the best laid plans have hiccups.  An experienced contractor coordinates everyone involved in the remodel project. They also ensure that all of the workers you hire are actually working.

    Without a contractor and a plan, you may be paying for skilled workers that are waiting around for their turn to work.  That model is  expensive for everyone.

    Our skilled technicians can be in and out of a job quickly and efficiently when a job is well scheduled around dependencies on others.

Called on a holiday morning with a toilet crisis (it WAS a crisis because we only have one, and it was completely clogged) – Joe promptly came out and remedied the situation within the hour. Expected a long wait and a hefty bill but no such case. Joe additionally advised us to replace our old, inefficient toilet sometime in the future. Not the first time we’ve called Raymark and won’t be the last.

Jose was awesome: gave my kitchen faucet a quick temporary fix while I got a new fixture, and then installed the new one perfectly. Brittany (in the office) made sure Jose got here as soon as possible!

Hayden and his team were fantastic. Fast, high-quality work at an affordable price. They have a lot of experience dealing with older buildings, and I would highly recommend Raymark for anyone living in a building or home with older pipes.

Ty and his assistant did a great job replacing pipes under our kitchen sink and attaching earthquake straps to the hot water tank. Ty was very patient in explaining the position of the straps. I would ask for him again in a heartbeat…. They were on time and finished very quickly.

Had a clog that was filling up my basement. The guys at Raymark found the problem and replaced the pipe. After the pipe was replaced they made sure the rest of the plumbing was in working condition. Their attitudes were great and they worked hard. Very satisfied customer.

Personnel were very warm and professional, and plumbers did a great job with both explaining and showing what they were doing. They addressed all concerns and were prompt in getting back to me. It was a big job, new sewer pipe put in from the house to the street.

Good morning, Raymark. Thanks, Anthony, for sending Dan to the rescue last week. We hadn’t been struck by an earthquake under our kitchen sink after all. Dan tightened the wobbly faucet, as well as its companion spouts, then wrestled the obstinate spray hose into line. Ingenious, he cobbled a defense so the hose could avoid tangling in the pipes. Dan is genial, and we really appreciate his visit.

Sincerely yours,
