Do you think you’re ready to upgrade the sink fixtures in your kitchen sink or bathroom sink? You could head to the local home improvement store, pick out a faucet, and try to install the new fixture yourself, but are you sure you know what you’re doing? Sink fixture replacements are one of those household jobs that many people will say you can absolutely do yourself while others believe it’s a job that demands a professional.

Risks of DIY

Ultimately, doing it yourself means taking responsibility for any errors or missteps you might make during the installation process. If you are unfamiliar with this type of repair work, it could be very easy to miss a step, forget to install a part, or neglect to take proper precautions and wind up with a room full of water, damaged brand-new parts, and several hundred dollars in the hole.

If you try to install new sink hardware yourself, you run the risk of damaging your sink and other areas around it. Additionally, you need to know what to look for under the sink so you can buy the right type of fixture.

Why You Should Call a Pro

When you hire a professional to do a job in your home, you’re paying for their experience and skills and your own peace of mind. Unless you have practical experience performing a specific type of work, doing it yourself risks not only property damage, but also injury to yourself or others. This rule applies to any type of home improvement project, even something that seems as simple as replacing your sink fixtures.
