Hard water causes damage to your pipes and fixtures. It contains abrasive materials that corrode your fixtures. This reduces the useful life of hardware and can cause you to spend more money over the long term. We can replace your fixtures with brands that are resistant to hard water damage and we can also recommend ways to soften the water flowing through your pipes.
The answer to this question depends on a number of factors. For example, if you remodel your kitchen and have an aging plumbing structure, it’s a good time to replace leaking fixtures and pipes.
Anytime you have a faucet that shows a lot of wear and tear, you should consider replacing it when you fix the leak. This can prevent future maintenance problems and may prevent more costly repairs caused by defective fixtures. Let us steer you towards reliable brands that fit the aesthetic qualities of your kitchen or bath.
If you remember when you bought your fixtures, you can call the manufacturer or look up information pertaining to the typical useful life of the product.
Material is the most important factor when it comes to choosing a replacement plumbing fixture. This is even more important than choosing a faucet that appeals to your aesthetic. Partnering with a qualified plumber can help you find the right brand to suit your taste and ensure long-lasting utility.
Plumbing fixtures come in a variety of compositions, including metal, ceramic and other materials. We recommend choosing a metal fixture and your choice of finishes. You can choose from antique, brushed, or polished veneers. Whatever finish you select, make sure that it is sturdy enough to withstand regular use.
Copper is lightweight and resists corrosion. This is a popular choice for fixtures and pipes. However, copper doesn’t perform well if you use well water. It’s also more expensive than other metals.
We also install stainless steel plumbing fixtures. Due to its attractive appearance, this is one of the most common materials used for faucets. Stainless steel is heavier than some materials, which can be a problem in large commercial builds.
If you have enough disposable income, you can choose gold for your plumbing fixtures. Gold is a durable material that adds a real glam factor and cleans up quickly. It’s also one of the most expensive plumbing fixture options that you can choose.
Chrome is one of the most versatile and durable materials you can get on a budget. For sophisticated look, we recommend polished chrome due to its upscale look. Chrome is popular and very easy to find. However, water spots form more often on chrome fixtures, making cleaning it more difficult than other materials.
Like chrome, nickel is easy to clean. However, it’s not the most popular material, so you may have difficulty finding matching hardware. We also install nickel faucets and sinks for new construction and kitchen remodels.
Another versatile material, brass can be found universally. Brass is not as durable as some of the alternatives. However, many people like the customize look of polished or matte finishes on brass fixtures.
Bronze is one of the most expensive material for plumbing fixtures and faucets. It’s easy to keep clean and you can find it readily in most hardware stores. Many homeowners with antique or traditional decor choose bronze fixtures to maintain the ambience of the property.
Whichever material appeals to your sensibilities, make sure that it fits within your budget. It’s easy to overrun cost by choosing fancy faucets that do not provide additional functionality for your plumbing system. Remember to include labor and any other materials needed to install the plumbing fixtures.
When you choose high quality materials, you help prevent costly repairs anytime in the near future. If your taste run toward the expensive, consider whether the fixtures will increase the value of your home before committing to a frivolous purchase.
Rather than installing new plumbing fixtures yourself, leave it to the experts. At bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of West Houston, our technicians take extra care to keep your fixtures in pristine conditions.
