A bathroom faucet that leaks, or one that does not match the interior design of your bathroom, may need to be replaced. Sometime it is more cost effective to replace the entire faucet rather than continuing to make costly repairs.
- If you decide to replace the bathroom faucet by yourself, you will only have to buy the faucet. Depending on the design of the faucet you will spend from $50 to $200 for the faucet.
- If you decide to hire a professional plumber, you will spend from $200 to $500 for labour. It will also depend on the company that you will hire for the services because different plumbing companies available will tend to charge at different rates. In different locations the cost of labour is also varied. Of course if the plumber runs into any unexpected problems and it takes longer the cost of labour will increase.
- A professional plumber will be in a better position of knowing the best faucet that you can install and the best way to install it.
What to watch out for…
In order to achieve the best while installing the faucet, you should hire a plumber who has enough experience. You should also buy from a store that will enable you access to a quality bathroom faucet at the best rates. Ask a professional plumber for advice before buying.
