What Does the Term “Rough In” Mean?

“Rough In” is construction terminology for a specific phase of a home building or renovation project.  At this point, holes have been made, studs have been fitted, plumbing framework is assembled, but fixtures haven’t been installed.

Roughing In Drains for Installation of Future Plumbing Fixtures

You may be asking why roughing in is important.  All plumbing features have to be placed certain distances apart in order for a building to be up to code. Ignoring building codes means that you have a very expensive problem to fix later on.  You may incur fines, and be forced to correct the plumbing by the City of Ottawa at your own expense.  Depending on how many modifications you’ll need to make, it may be more than the initial cost of the renovations. 

Rougn in

Roughing-in allows us to ensure we have laid out our framework correctly.  It verifies that we have enough room to meet building codes, and have a plumbing feature be functioning properly.  We can use it to confirm that pipes and drains are located where they’re supposed to be.  When we get roughing-in right the first time, we eliminate the need for time and money to redo it later.

Roughing-In and DIY

It’s best if you have a licensed plumbing team, like Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing Services, assist you with your roughing-in.  Performing this as a DIY project is may result in you frustrated and making many expensive mistakes.  Poor roughing-in can lead to clogged drains, improperly flushing toilets, and bad water flows through pipes which may lead to backups. 

Our 20+ years of experience working with local plumbing and venting codes will be an asset for your project.  We can help design a roughing-in that meets all necessary requirements: yours and the City of Ottawa’s.

Rough-In Cost

Doing a rough-in properly requires sufficient time and effort. The associated costs reflect this. Licensed plumbers have the expertise, skills, and problem-solving abilities needed to ensure that the pipes and fittings are all installed correctly.

The materials needed make up a significant portion of the rough-in costs. This is especially the case if copper fittings and pipes will be installed. Costs can come in at $11 or $12 to install a 6.5-foot pipe or approximately $5 to install fittings.

Labour is another major component of the rough-in cost. When you call to get quotes for a rough-in project, most plumbers will include materials and labor in their quotes.

New Construction Plumbing Rough-In Cost

A new construction rough-in is less complicated than is a non-new construction rough-in. Even so, doing a new construction rough-in necessitates carefully choosing the location of the sanitary ware that will be installed at a later date. It could cost around $950 per piece for a plumbing rough-in in a non-condo apartment. In a condo, it could cost approximately $1,250 for a plumbing rough-in. It’ll cost extra for the water main setup.

Rough-In Costs While Renovations

If you’re renovating your home, you might choose to get a new bathtub, shower, sink, or toilet. Doing any of these projects will require plumbing work. Doing rough-in plumbing work can add up to about $1,000 per piece in homes and around $1,300 in commercial settings. Professional renovation work can boost the valuation of your home. It can also be a better financial move than tackling a new construction or completing a remodel project.
