Faucet Repair and Installation
Faucet repair and installation look like easy projects if you watch the do-it-yourself shows, but have you ever noticed that these shows are all sponsored by home improvement stores? They want to sell you products and it is in their best interest to make things look much easier than they really are. At Kay Plumbing, we provide you with the expert local plumbing service and plumbing advice needed to complete the installation of your choice, quick & easy! We don't have any contracts with the fixture manufacturers - the only person we have a contract with is you!
Faucet repair can simply be a matter of replacing old gaskets, o-rings, or corroded valve seats, but when you go to take the fixture apart, it may not be that easy. This is because there are four types of faucets, and each requires different parts. Most people are familiar with compression faucets, which are outfitted with a handle that turns in order to block or unblock the flow of water, and relies on a rubber washer to prevent leaks.
Faucet repair like this seems straight forward enough, but what about cartridge faucets, disk faucets, and ball faucets? The directions for repair get more complicated with theses kind of fixtures and produce less results if you replace them yourself. In fact, if a faucet starts leaking and you attempt your own faucet repair, you may wind up stripping parts and doing more damage than repair. Especially if you have an expensive designer fixture, why not call us for an estimate?
We are experts at repairing bath valves, shower valves, and faucets. In fact, at Kay Plumbing, we can repair almost any valve ever made! We'll also let you know if it is a cheaper, and better idea to simply replace the fixture completely. We're not here for a quick buck, we want to make sure you feel taken care of and call us back for any future plumbing services you might need!
Faucet repair isn't always possible. We also know when it is NOT cost effective to repair. There are always times when it is less expensive to install a new fixture. New faucet installation may be necessary because of unrepairable cracks in valve bodies or because they are simply too worn to work properly anymore.
