Faucet Repair and Installation

Faucet repair and faucet 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 A & W Plumbing & Heating, Inc, we provide you with the expert local plumbing service and plumbing advice needed to complete the faucet 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 Types

Faucet repair can simply be a matter of replacing old gaskets, O-rings, or corroded valve seats, but when you go to take a faucet 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 faucet repair get more complicated with these types of faucets 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 faucet damage than faucet repair. Especially if you have expensive designer faucets, why not call us for free estimates?

We are experts at repairing bath valves, shower valves, and faucets. In fact, at A & W Plumbing & Heating, Inc, we can repair almost any valve ever made! We’ll also let you know if it would be more economical and an overall better investment to simply replace the faucet 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 Installation

Faucet repair isn’t always possible. We also know when it is NOT cost effective to repair a faucet. There are always times when it is less expensive to replace faucets. New faucet installation may be necessary because of unrepairable cracks in valve bodies or because your faucets are merely too worn to work properly anymore.

There are so many different kinds of faucets available, from the very elegant to the very practical, we supply and install all of them. Faucet manufacturers that are worth looking at include American Standard, Delta Faucets, Elkay, Gerber, Grohe, Hansgrohe, Kohler, Moen Faucets, T&S Brass Co, and Toto. We can perform faucet installation on any type of faucet that you choose, or make recommendations if you need help deciding.

Changing faucets and fixtures can transform your kitchen or bath into an entire new space. If you’re considering an entire bathroom or kitchen renovation, let us help! Our plumbing contractors are trained to have a high attention to detail when installing sinks, showers, faucets, toilets – you name it.
