Before you buy a new kitchen countertop, sink and faucet for your kitchen, you should consult with a plumber who does the whole job. Plumbing might take more work and be a higher expense than you are anticipating. Going over the options and any obstacles with a plumber makes it possible to make a wise and educated decision on how you should proceed.
Issues You May Confront
Extra costly issues may be encountered. For example, a gentleman purchased a very nice granite countertop and kitchen sink from a company who doesn’t do plumbing. That company came out and measured and made the countertop and attached the sink. He was told he would need a plumber to hook the sink up. They had no idea what would be involved. It became a larger project to install because the sink was lower than the original one which meant the pipes didn’t match up with the pipes in the wall. It’s about $700-$800 to do the drain change after the sink and countertop are installed.
His garbage disposal would no longer fit under the sink making him unable to have a garbage disposal.
He also purchased a really nice touchless faucet. However, the sink is a corner mount and the cables and supply lines from the manufacturer were not long enough. This made it another unexpected extra expense to get it installed.
