Relocating a Washer/Dryer

I'll start with the obvious question.
Yes, you will need permits for this project.

Some things to look out for:

  • Relocating your dryer will require moving the vent for proper air quality.
  • It will likely also cause you to upgrade the electrical outlet in the new location, and possibly at the breaker box.
  • Relocating your washer will require you to run sufficient plumbing to the new area and cap off the existing pipes. 
  • You will also need to be sure the flooring is secure in the new area, as these are heavy pieces of equipment, especially when full of water. 
  • You will also need a proper air vent in the room to remove humidity that can cause mold to grow in the walls or ceiling.
