Kitchen Sink Installation in Tampa
A well-maintained sink can last a very long time without problems, but once trouble rears its head with a kitchen sink, it often gives way to more and worse problems. Cracks grow from aesthetic blemishes to sources of leaks, minor leaks turn from irritation to a source of mold and water damage, and slow drains become frequent clogs. By acting quickly to secure the help of the professionals at All American Home Services, you’ll save yourself time, money, and frustration.
To schedule repair or replacement services for your kitchen sink in the Tampa area, contact All American today at 813-486-4038 or reach out to us online.
Signs Your Sink Needs Repair or Replacement
Wondering what sorts of problems warrant professional attention? While anything usual or undesirable changing in your kitchen sink probably deserves a look and some maintenance work, there’s a list of warning signs that your sink needs professional repair services — or a replacement, depending on severity and other factors.
- Leaks. Leaks anywhere should be taken seriously, as they give way to more and worse problems quickly.
- Decreased volume. If your faucet gives less water than it did before, it could be a pipe problem.
- Backs up regularly. Regular clogs can be a problem with general plumbing, or a problem with a specific sink.
- Growing cracks. Hairline cracks don’t matter much — unless they’re getting bigger.
- Rust or mold. Rust of metal components or fixtures is a sign of leaks or other issues, as is mold anywhere nearby.
If you have these problems, or have questions about something not listed here, reach out to All American Home Services today to ask about repair services. You can reach us at 813-486-4038 or online at our contact page.
When to Replace Instead of Repair
While many issues with your kitchen sink may be reparable, repair isn’t always the smartest long-term decision. Here are some reasons to consider a new kitchen sink installation over repairing your old one:
- Planning to sell. Plan to sell your home soon? A new sink is always a great selling point, while having to inform buyers that you’ve had problems with the old one can be a drawback.
- Frequent problems. If you keep having trouble, replacing your kitchen sink can help you stop needing so many visits.
- Very old. Once a sink gets old enough, the odds of difficult-to-repair problems goes up.
- Cost of repairs too high vs. cost of replacement. If a single repair would cost a significant portion of a full replacement, going for the replacement can make good economic sense.
- You want a new sink. If your sink isn’t good for how you use it, or you don’t like how it looks, replacing now makes sense even if your repairs would be minor.
Benefits of Having a Pro Install Your Sink
If you’re comfortable with doing it yourself, you might be considering purchasing a sink and having a go at it — but there are many reasons to entrust this job to a professional, even if you’re confident in your skill with a toolbelt and ability to learn from a YouTube video.
- Specific expertise. Installing a kitchen sink involves multiple unique challenges with their own skill sets involved: installing the sink itself, plumbing, the work done around the sink, etc.
- Protection against mistakes. If you mess up installing your sink, you’re out of luck. If a contractor makes a mistake, they have to fix it. It’s simply safer than doing it on your own.
- Logistics. Often, you’ll end up losing money on acquiring the sink, tools, and everything else you need to install a sink compared to what an established team of professionals would pay.
