Faucet Repair and Replacement

Kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, bathtubs, showers, wet bars, laundry rooms, and even outisde spigots contain moving parts and wear and break over time. Our plumbers are skilled and can handle any faucet problem set before them.  

The most common problem with Tub & Shower plumbing is they develop drips from the tub spout and the showerhead.  In most cases, the leak can be traced to the valves controlled by the faucet handles.

Tub & Shower Faucets

When a tub and shower are combined, the showerhead and the tub spout share the same hot and cold water supply lines and handles.  Combination faucets are available as three-handle, two-handle, and single-handle types.

Choosing a New Kitchen Faucet

You'll find many options when choosing a new kitchen faucet.  

 

The two most basic kitchen faucet categories are single-handle and two-handle.  Single-handle models are much more popular now because you can adjust the water temperature easily with just one hand.

Common Faucet types

Ball-type faucet has a single handle over a dome-shped cap.

Cartridge faucets are available in single-handle or double-handle models.

Compression faucet has two handles.  

Disc faucet has a single handle and a solid, chromed-brass body.
