Not all fixtures will be installed for the same price. In general, there is a set price for a standard installation, and it would seem like installing a new faucet is a simple task. However, there are several factors and potential problems that may need to be addressed to ensure the work gets done with-in your budget.
Condition of the current faucet: If your current faucet is rusted or has broken parts, it will be harder to remove and could potentially damage the plumbing lines. They would then have to be replaced.
Does the counter and sink work with the installation? It is important to buy a fixture that matches the existing faucets, as well, the counter and sinks location. Unless you are planning to replace the sink and countertop, it is a good idea to take measurements before you buy the fixtures to ensure that your new fixture is going to work with the existing set up.
Make and model of faucet to install: Faucet prices can range anywhere from $100 to as much as $1000 or more. It might not affect the installation cost, but it is important to keep this in mind when planning an upgrade.
Warranties: Not all faucets have the same lifespan. Before you decide on a fixture it is a good idea to find out about the warranty included on its hard wear and internal parts.
Connectors/mountings: If the existing connectors or mounting are damaged, you will need to pay for them to be replaced.
The condition of the plumbing in your home: If your plumbing is old and damaged, or is not up to date with currant plumbing codes, you might need to have it repaired or replaced.
It is a good idea to research the different makes and models that are available before you buy. Each model will offer its own set of advantages, disadvantages, special features and design elements.

A leaky tap is one of the most common plumbing issues we get calls for. While many complain of the noise associated with a dripping faucet, it’s the water literally going down the drain that should be the real concern.
Usually one of three things is wrong when your faucet stops working. The washer, the O-ring or the jumper valve, and it’s a good idea to replace all three while the tap is disassembled. The washer could be a rubber, or a ceramic disc or a cartridge. All can wear over time and may need to be replaced.
With increasingly busy lives, many homeowners simply don’t have time to fix their own taps, and even less time to install new faucets. DJ Plumbing & Heating’s team of plumbing pros will ensure your job is done fast and hassle-free. Give us a call today.
