Some faucets can be hard to remove if they're rusted or have broken parts, which can add labor time to the project and potentially damage the plumbing lines. If the new faucet doesn't fit the countertop or sink, modifications may need to be made, which can significantly increase the cost.
Installing a faucet requires experience with plumbing and hardware. If the faucet isn't installed correctly, leaks, cracks and other damage may occur. Working with a professional contractor ensures that it's fitted and sealed appropriately. Contractors are also aware of local codes and regulations that may impact plumbing work.
