Bathroom Plumbing Services in Chapel Hill, NC

Of all the different parts of the home that use plumbing appliances, the bathroom is by far the one with the most. This makes the bathroom unique in its plumbing needs. Every single plumbing appliance in your bathroom probably sees daily use, sometimes multiple times a day. That means that it is going to need plumbing services more often to keep up with the wear and tear. Fortunately, that’s what we’re here for. We offer a full range of bathroom plumbing services throughout Chapel Hill, NC. Whether you need installation, repair, maintenance, or replacement services, we can help you out.

Call today to schedule an appointment with one of our plumbers.


There is a myriad of different plumbing options available for each and every appliance in your bathroom. Let’s take a look at a few of them:

  • Sinks: Your bathroom sink, like every other appliance in the room, is both a practical and aesthetic choice. Do you need a pedestal sink? Perhaps an under-mount? What about something really unique, like a vessel sink? You can totally change the feel of your bathroom, just by changing your sink type.
  • Toilets: Toilets vary both in size, shape, and water consumption. The type of toilet you choose for your bathroom will have a pretty significant effect on your comfort and convenience, so you’re going to want to make sure that you choose the right one. We can help you with that choice.
  • Showers/Baths: Your shower or bathtub is another area that has a vast variety of options. Do you want to experiment with something more modern, like a waterfall shower? Or do you prefer the tried and true reliability of a more traditional showerhead? Is your tub large enough to be comfortable, while still fitting the needs of the bathroom as a whole? No matter what your shower or bathtub needs are, we can meet them for you.

These are just a few of the many options we provide. If you have a question about any of our services, give us a call!


With heavy use comes increased wear and tear, which means you’re probably going to need bathroom plumbing repair or maintenance services at some point. Let’s take a look at some signs that you need bathroom plumbing services.

  • Bad Smells/Slow Drainage: If you have bad smells coming out of your drains, or they’re draining more slowly than they usually do, you probably have a clog forming. Give us a call, and we’ll clean out your drains for you before they can cause serious issues.
  • Leaks: Leaks around any of your appliances should be taken quite seriously, as even a small leak can cause a large amount of water damage if left unattended. If you notice water leaking from around your faucet, toilet, shower, or bathtub, let us know.

It’s always better to be safe than sorry. If you suspect that you have any problem with your bathroom or kitchen plumbing, call us right away.

What can I do if my toilet overflows?

First, remove the toilet tank lid and lift the float or fill valve to stop the water from refilling the tank. Then, turn off the water supply to the toilet – this is usually the pipe at the bottom of the toilet, and the valve is usually on the pipe itself. Finally, turn off your home’s main water and assess the issue. If the water continues to overflow after turning off the main water, the issue could be unusually serious. Either way, it’s best to call a plumber to get to the root cause of the issue after an overflow issue.

Why is the water in my shower suddenly flowing slow?

Unfortunately, this is a lot like asking “why does my stomach hurt?” There are many potential culprits, all ranging from quick fixes to more serious problems. Here at Bud Matthews Services, we see a lot of scale buildup, poor overall water pressure, blocked pipes, and showerheads not up to the task. A plumber will be able to diagnose the problem for certain.

Why isn’t my bathtub draining?

This could be due to a broken or rusted stopper, or the pipe itself may be blocked. First, try pulling the stopper out and see if that fixes the problem. If not, you might have a real clog on your hands, which we recommend calling in the professionals to assess.
