What Causes Leaky Faucets?
A drippy faucet is an annoyance and no matter how many times you jiggle the handle or twist the faucet handle as tight as you can. However, not all faucets are made the same. There are actually four types of mechanisms:
The different mechanisms don’t actually make much of a difference in day-to-day use, but they do affect repairs and of course the look of your faucet.
Your Guide to Choosing a New Bathroom Faucet
Choosing a new faucet for your bathroom means taking into account factors such as the number of holes in your sink. Most will be one or three holes. You also need to decide whether you want a single handle or two.
For three-hole faucet designs, you can choose from center-set faucets are a one-piece option, while widespread faucets make a more distinctive statement with three pieces.
If you have a vessel sink, you may want to look for a higher, vessel faucet to accommodate the greater height. You can also consider wall-mount faucets for a more contemporary look. For a high-tech option look to handsfree faucets.
If you are remodeling your bathroom, remember to consider whether you’re moving any of the plumbing. We can help with more than just installing your new faucet. We can replace the sink, re-route plumbing, and much more.
Your Guide to Choosing a New Kitchen Faucet
When you replace your kitchen faucet, you have a wealth of options available to you. Again, you have to consider the basics, including hole configuration and the number of handles. Your kitchen sink will have have between 1 and 5 to accommodate soap dispensers, sprayers, and other features.
More specific features to consider are whether the faucet has a high arc or a low one. A high arc is particularly suited to kitchens that see a lot of use, especially if you frequently cook in large pots. A low arc is perfectly fine if this isn’t an issue.
The final option to consider is the sprayer, if you have one. A side spray is the most common, but you’ll also find pull-down sprayers and pull-out sprayers.
The final consideration is the finish on your faucet. Chrome is the standard, but your options are nearly endless, ranging from brushed chrome and polished nickel to oil rubbed bronze. Choose a finish you like, and then coordinate the rest of the details in your kitchen or bathroom, from towel racks to lighting fixtures and door knobs, so that they match.
Brushed finishes are more forgiving of smudges and fingerprints, which makes them ideal for homes with little fingers. Polished finishes are the epitome of elegance but they take more work to maintain.
