Feeling Overcharged for sink/faucet install - what do you think?
We just remodeled our laundry room and the last thing to complete was installing the sink and faucet. We built the house four years ago and never had the sink installed however we do have the the copper line stub outs and drain/P-trap.
I already had the sink and faucet ready to go. The plumber said that the copper line stub-outs were too short and he would have to cut into the drywall to give him more room to work - he acted like this was going to be a big deal. He gave me a price, I thought it was high but I think my anxiousness to finish clouded my judgement so I said do it.
The whole thing took him no longer than 2 hours from start to finish. I know he had to do some cutting, sweating, and a P-trap adjustment.
This is the cost breakdown:
Angle stops: $189.18
Sink Install: $316.46
Faucet Install: $316.46
In retrospect, I would never have paid that much - at least not before getting a couple of estimates.
I think I'll end up calling the company and ask if there may have been a pricing error but I want to do some research first before I decide how aggressive my approach will be.
