Sinks are not complicated to install but your plumber can help
In many cases, a homeowner with a bit of experience can manage a sink installation. But, your local Gilbert plumber can give you advice on how difficult the installation will be.
Every sink is a bit different; for instance self-rimming sinks are easier to install, however undermount sinks which look sleeker are much more difficult to install. If you have a new undermount sink, you may want to call your local plumber for advice on the installation or to help you install it because there is the potential for plumbing issues or water damage if something goes wrong.
In many cases it’s simply easier to hire your plumber, but it all depends on your experience and the type of kitchen upgrade you’re doing.
