Why Get a Professional Sink Installation?
A professional kitchen sink installation can make a huge difference. Done correctly and you improve not just your kitchen’s look, but its efficiency and functionality as well. At Black Mountain Plumbing, we are experts in kitchen sink installation.
We know that every DIY-er has the best of intentions. However, saving a bit of money in the now can spell disaster in the long run. Fixtures that are incorrectly fitted can lead to serious consequences down the line. There are several parts you could easily miss such as valves and washers. Parts that are incorrectly installed can cause your faucet to wear out quickly and leak. (Think ugly water stains and costly water leaks!). Moisture build-up below the sink cabinetry can also lead to harmful and unsightly mold and mildew!
The damage is most likely to cost significantly more than the savings you would have had with a professional kitchen sink installation.
When do I Need to Replace my Kitchen Sink and Faucet?
Signs of the sink and/or faucet problems include low water pressure, leaking underneath, a gurgling drain, slow draining, dripping, cracking, and staining. The usual culprits are simple to wear and tear, old age, damaged parts, water pressure, broken plumbing, and pipe blockage. Over time, kitchen sink and faucet problems cause damage to our kitchen structures. It can affect property value and even your health (think hazardous mold and mildew)! At Black Mountain Plumbing, you get kitchen remodeling from professionals who are also experts at plumbing repair and installation.
