Things to know before you get started.
7 Steps to Sink and Faucet Installation
  1. 1. Check references

    Ask each plumbing service for references. Call to verify those references to ensure the contractor's reliability.

  2. 2. Find fixtures

    Research the type of sink or faucet you want installed. Determine if a pedestal or cabinet sink meets your needs. Gather pricing on faucet styles that interest you.

  3. 3. Get free estimates

    Schedule two or three free estimates to determine which plumbing service meets your needs within your budget. Ask if there are pricing breaks if you purchase the parts and supplies yourself.

  4. 4. Look for guarantees

    Do not purchase a faucet or sink without a manufacturer’s warranty. Ensure that the plumbing service completes repairs of their own work in a timely manner.

  5. 5. Hire a pro

    Do not make any payments in full prior to the installation. Some services may require a deposit of 20 percent of the total, or they might require payment in full for the parts required.

  6. 6. Help yourself

    Learn as much as you can about minor repairs such as fixing a leaky faucet. This free education might save you a repair bill in the future.

  7. 7. Test everything

    Ensure the sink and faucet are both installed correctly before making the final payment. Test the sink and faucet by running both hot and cold water for a few minutes.
