What steps do you need to take before installing a bathroom in your basement?
When you decide to add a bathroom to your basement, there are necessary steps to take before any work can commence.
In Georgia, you must first fill out a “Residential Basement Finish” permit pack before any construction can be performed. In order to receive your permit, you must present two complete sets of required information and a floor plan.
The floor plan must include:
- Dimensions to scale, showing the layout of the entire basement.
- Labels showing the use for all of the rooms.
- Marking existing from new and finished from unfinished.
- Show electrical outlets, smoke detectors, lighting, fans, plumbing modifications, cleanouts, furnace, and water heater.
- Indicate whether equipment is electric or gas.
- List window sizes and types, identify emergency escape and rescue windows.
- Identify modifications to the existing structure such as posts, beams and floor joists.
- Indicate where dropped ceiling areas are less than 7 feet.
- Show clearance around the tub and fixtures.
What plumbing codes should you adhere to?
Every state has a different set of rules and regulations with remodeling. Our technicians are up to date and trained to perform all necessary jobs that adhere to all of Georgia’s codes.
It is imperative you contact us during the planning stages so that you can avert having unnecessary jobs and costs due to codes not being met.
Some of Georgia’s bathroom basement construction codes include:
- Toilets must be provided with a minimum of 21” in front of the toilet and 15” from the center of the toilet and any sidewall or other obstruction.
- Showers shall have a minimum inside dimension of 900 square inches.
- A ventilation fan is required in toilet rooms and bathrooms with inoperable windows.
- The fan must be vented to the exterior of the building and not to terminate within 3’ of an opening.
