There are several options to consider when choosing a new faucet:
Since there are so many design variations, the type and style of faucet selected greatly affects the cost of the project. The existing water feed lines may also need to be adapted or extended to connect to the new one, requiring additional hardware and labor. If the sink has a drain that attaches to the faucet, the linkage may need to be modified to fit the new system, which could add to the overall cost.
Local codes in many locations require that a licensed plumber be contracted to perform any work on pipes in a home. Working with a professional also ensures that the faucet is installed securely and reduces the likelihood of leaks which can lead to costly water damage.
