Appliance installation

boone_2009September 25, 2013

I had posted some weeks ago regarding which professional should install appliances but I didn't bookmark my post and now I don't know if I posted here or on the Kitchen forum and cannot retrieve that short thread. So I am posting again - sorry for the redundancy.

We bought our appliances from Pacific Sales ( Southern CA) and they gave us a list of independent appliance installers. The general contractor whose name they recommended as our first go-to on that list, now says he has hurt his back and cannot come this week as scheduled. So we went back to the list and there's a certified plumber who says he can do the installation.

We need to install double wall ovens ( electric), a gas cooktop, a dishwasher and a garbage disposer and also connect our sink/faucet/ and install a soap dispenser and the air gap next to the faucet.

Should we have the plumber/installer do everything except the wall ovens - and hire our electrician to install those? Plumber does gas cooktops, too.

I remember on my previous thread, everyone recommended using a general contractor. Our cabinets and countertops were installed by Lowes but since we didn't purchase our appliances from them, we have to get our own installer.

Please advise. Thanks!

Now I used the top right box and wowsers! I saw *all* my previous posts,oh, joy!!! Now I no longer have to remember to add each of my threads to my Favorites folder, lol.
Much obliged!

tjmwine: No, the plumber said he *would* do the wall oven was I who hesitated as I didn't know if a plumber was the "right' professional for that particular job.
You think we should go ahead and not hire someone else ( such as an electrician or a GC) to install the wall ovens?

You can either have a plumber or an electrican do the install, if you still "hesitated" talk to the plumber, ask how many wall oven installs he has done. Might just surprse you.
