Many homeowners struggle with small plumbing issues like leaky faucets, but when do you need to have them fixed? Most people think that they know what a severe plumbing problem would look like, but the reality is that small annoyances can quickly turn into massive plumbing disasters. Leaky faucets can get water in places where you do not want it, which is especially risky in the fall and winter months when pipes can burst and freezing water wreaks havoc on all sorts of construction. If your home has sinks that leak, avoid these plumbing complications by contacting Metcalf Plumbing for faucet replacement.
Faucet Replacement is Often Smarter than Repair
While faucet repair is a valid option in some cases, having your fixtures replaced entirely can be the better option, especially if your plumbing is outdated. Faucet replacement allows you to replace your old, worn-down faucet with brand-new hardware that will likely last much longer than a repair. When you repair one part of a faucet, you could end up needing to fix other elements in the near future. Besides, a new faucet can give you the opportunity to give your bathroom, kitchen, or laundry room a much needed visual upgrade.
Protect Your Home from Water Damage
The small leak on the side of your faucet might not be the only place that water is getting through. Leaks are often a sign of age and wear on plumbing fixtures, and the visible damage is usually just the tip of the iceberg. Your faucet may have or develop leaks behind or beneath its visible parts, leading to water damage, mold, or pest infestations. By replacing your tap, you not only eliminate the leakage you see, but you also allow a plumber to look for leaks that you cannot see.
Save Money and Water
One of the more apparent symptoms of a leaky faucet is wasted water. This waste leads to a higher water bill, which, when paired with the effects of water damage, means that faucet replacement can end up saving you money in the long run. If your faucet is in need of replacement or repair, contact the experts at Metcalf Plumbing today.
