Also called spouts, these fixtures are either slip-on or screw-on. Upgrading from an old spout to a new one is a bathroom upgrade that can make a positive difference in a short amount of time.

The price for a spout installation will vary depending on several factors. One such variable is whether or not there’s an existing faucet that needs to be removed. The mounting style of the faucet also has a lot to do with how much the installation will cost. In addition, the brand of the new unit and what it’s made from may also impact the price.
Homeowners should hire a professional contractor to install a new tub faucet. The preparation and installation process can be complicated and labor-intensive. If incorrectly installed, the new faucet can leak and cause damage to the bathroom, leading to greater costs in the long run. Using the services of an experienced contractor can prevent these hassles and ensure optimum results.
