Renovating your kitchen or bathroom is the usual time a faucet is changed. There are a number of good brands out there in box stores that will meet your needs. You can also take another step up and go with a professional grade which is made of more durable parts.
A quality faucet is generally heavier because of the sturdier construction and higher grade parts. Of course if you have never tried this before you will need to experience it yourself to get the feel for lighter ones versus heavier ones. Inner parts made of brass are a good sign of quality and definitely add weight.
Some faucets are highly priced but that doesn't always mean high quality, a particular higher priced faucet may just be more rare or harder to find and therefore demanding the higher price.
A good quality mid priced faucet is good for most kitchens or bathrooms, just make sure there is a decent warranty available so you have something to fall back on. If you are still unsure just give us a call.
Do It Yourself Installation
Faucet installations can be a little tricky if you have never tackled this sort of thing previously. Be sure you have the correct tools on hand before you begin, it could save you a lot of headaches.
Don't forget to turn off your main water valve before you begin and expect a little bit of water to spill as you disconnect the pipes or hoses.
When connecting the hoses back up be sure the connection is tight but be mindful of over tightening so as not to damage the connection.
