What Does the Term “Rough In” Mean?

When you’re in the process of extensive renovations or building a new home, roughing-in refers to that point where all the holes have been bored through the studs and the pipes have been fitted and assembled to give the proper plumbing framework for the building, but no fixtures have been installed yet.

Roughing in drains for installation of future plumbing fixtures

Properly roughing-in your drains, vents, and pipes is an incredibly important step in the construction of a building. Incorrectly spaced drains or pipes or incorrectly placed toilets or sinks could cost a fortune to repair later on.  Consider how hard it would be to move a drain or a toilet in a basement with a concrete floor. The time and expense of jack-hammering the concrete, making adjustments and roughing-in again could be very steep.

It’s of the utmost importance that fixtures have enough room to be functional, that drains are placed in the correct location to work and that all pipes and drains are able to connect and function properly before work is finalized. If it’s done right the first time, you don’t have to worry about the time and cost of fixing it later.

Roughing in and DIY

The value of having a professional plumber rough-in your drains and pipes can’t be understated. You need a thorough understanding of local plumbing and venting codes, otherwise, you risk clogged drains, poor water flow, poor flush action and water backing up to cause water damage. Call a professional, trained plumber at the beginning to ensure work that is efficient and correct the first time.
