For most homeowners in the area, quality is top of mind when they tell us they need help with a Moraga sink installation project. As one of the leading teams in Moraga sink installation projects, our staff at Performance Plumbing thought it would be helpful to share some of our expert knowledge with this short guide to sink installations so that homeowners like you can ensure you get a quality result that you’re happy with.

For most people, DIY is probably not suitable
While we commend people who want to take on projects themselves, a sink installation project is usually beyond the skill set of the average homeowner who typically does not have a lot of experience with performing sink installations, nor the free time to do it.

Instead, we recommend partnering with an experienced home improvement plumber like our team at Performance Plumbing. We recommend staying away from inexperienced plumbers, plumbers with a negative customer review rating on websites like Yelp, or plumbers who specialize in plumbing repairs mostly. Installations require knowledge and experience.

The good news is that using an expert like our team can actually save you a lot of time, energy and expense, because you’ll get the job done right in an efficient period of time. A plumbing professional like our team also comes to the job fully insured, so you can be reassured that your property is fully protected the whole time.

Everything starts with the purpose of the sink
When starting off your sink installation, the most important starting point is identifying the purpose of the sink. Usually this comes down to the general location and intended function of the sink, such as a kitchen sink, bathroom sink, outdoor sink, and so forth.

The function of the sink of course determines the suitable models and installations available, but you should also think about the functional preferences of the people who will be using the sink. For example, if the sink is a bathroom sink, you may want to pick a sink design that fits the aesthetic preferences of the people who will be most frequently using the sink, in addition to being compatible with the overall aesthetics of the home. Likewise, people have different functional preferences for kitchen sinks, such as whether or not they include a divider, what type of faucet is provided, material types, and more.

Create a list of sink installations that you like
When you’ve got an idea of what the sink will be used for and what the needs of the people using the sink are, a good next step is gathering a set of examples of sink installations that you like.

A great place to find examples of good sink installations is online platforms like Pinterest, Instagram, home improvement blogs, and Facebook groups. On these platforms, you’ll be able to quickly browse hundreds or thousands of images fairly quickly, and pick out the examples that you like.

If you’re working with a professional, you can work together with them to whittle down your list and remove items that are less feasible, less cost effective, or otherwise less suitable for your particular situation.

Ask for a free estimate
At this point, you should have a strong foundation for your sink installation project. If you’re working with a professional plumber like our team at Performance Plumbing, be sure to ask for a free estimate before you commit to any work. At Performance Plumbing, we prefer to be up front with our customers about cost and time involved, and adjust as needed, so we think you shouldn’t expect anything less.
