Faucet & Fixture Repair & Replacement in Scottsdale, AZ

Kitchen Faucet Replacement or Repair"Let's get serious now and talk about faucets- but more importantly, let's talk about why plumbers are not designers!"

Our plumbers have been heard saying things such as "I'm just a guy, please don't expect me to know what you want to look at on your kitchen sink. I don't want you to hate me if I buy the wrong thing!" But honestly, we are not you, we don't know what you want to look at and use day after day and our plumbers are definitely not designers (although we know a GREAT one if you would like one!). 

We highly recommend that if you even think that you need a new sink faucet or plumbing fixture that you purchase it and have it at your home when the plumber arrives. If the existing one is repairable, we can do that, but this way you're ready for a replacement if necessary.

Some of our favorite places to shop for faucets and fixtures are Central AZ Supply, Ferguson's or even Home Depot and Lowe's.

Pretty Faucets vs Pretty Amazing

Some brands of faucets and fixtures are pretty, but when it comes to function, reparability and warranty they are not pretty awesome. Our favorite faucet brands are Moen and Delta. We won't shun you if you buy something else, but when it comes to ease of repair of your nearly new faucet, these are the easiest and most economical to fix. Moen has one of the best warranties we've ever seen in the industry. So if you need a faucet for a rental home or have a family that tends to be rough on your kitchen sink, this is something to consider.

Bathroom Faucet Replacement

Shower valves are NOT all created equally!

Shower FixturesWhat you see on your shower wall is a shower head and a handle. Those are referred to as 'trim'. The trim is superficial; all of the working goods are inside and behind the walls. The valves and cartridges do all of the work. If your 'shower head' is dripping, it's not the poor shower head's fault, the culprit is actually the cartridge or the valve. The valve and the cartridge have to match the trim. Most people don't realize this and will go out and buy trim that they like, but is incompatible with the plumbing hardware in the wall.

Replacing the entire shower valve usually involves removing tile or opening drywall on the opposite wall. So when it comes to shower handles, trim, cartridges and valves, it's not a bad idea to just wait for the professional to come and take a look.
