It can be rewarding to handle certain home repair, maintenance, and improvement tasks on your own. If you are handy with plumbing tools and have some plumbing knowledge, you might consider handling your faucet installation on your own. However, if you lack either of these, or both, it makes more sense to call in a professional to handle this project. It is especially true if you don’t have the tools you’d need because you won’t save money doing it yourself if you also have to invest in tools and supplies.
There are some other reasons to go with a professional for faucet installation. For example, if you are looking at the connections of the new faucet and they don’t seem to be the same as your current one, it may be more than a faucet swap-out situation. Additional plumbing expertise may be needed to get everything hooked up the way it should be. Another reason to have a professional handle your faucet installation is because they may have higher-quality faucets you can choose from than what you’d find at your local retailer.
Peace of mind is yet another reason to use a professional. If you fear you may end up with a leak and serious water damage if you tried faucet installation yourself, save yourself from those worries by having a plumber do the work for you. You should also consider that it may be a more difficult project than you think.
