Faucet Replacement for Kitchen or Bath

Faucet Installation

In almost every instance, the homeowner has chosen the new faucet and has it on hand. Labor rates for the replacement will vary depending on the type of faucet and whether or not it fits, and the conditions under the sink (easy access, lack of rust in the plumbing).

Most faucet replacements can be done by a handyman and don’t require the journeyman plumber. However, because you’re dealing with water, you should always double check for leaks within the first 24-48 hours.

I would need to replace 4 faucets in my home. Two in bathrooms one in the kitchen and one in a powder room. I have the faucets but would need the old ones removed and the new ones installed.

Just a simple new faucet install for a pedestal sink. Of course this would include removing the old faucet.

Low estimate for labor to replace a single faucet:

  • Labor 1 hour

High estimate for labor to replace a single faucet:

  • Labor 1.5 hours

Replace bathroom sink faucet

Existing bathroom sink is ok but want to update the faucet w- new one 4 inch centers–which I just bought at Dixieline. Current old plumbing should have used a flexible P-trap but didn’t– so the current drain pipe is sort of slanted over to connect.

If you are a contractor or a handyman, how much would this job cost in your area?

Low Price: $150

Consensus Price: $150

High Price: $150

  1. We too would charge a minimum of $50.00 to replace a kitchen or bath faucet. This also takes into account that it is an in and out job. No special instances such as outdated fixtures that require replumbing.

    1. Our house is new it was built in 2007 and I need to replace the faucet in the kitchen there’s plenty of room under the sink and I will have a faucet already how much would you charge I noticed you said it would be a minimum of $50, please let me know due to the Auburn water I think it keeps cracking and the water shoots out we’ve already replaced it before thank you

  2. Low Estimate: Materials: 0 Labor: 60 Total: $60 High Estimate: Materials: 0 Labor: 120 Total: 120 with major replacements of lines and or fixtures depending on the age of sink and fittings.

    1. I have a new home that I want to replace a kitchen faucet,with a
      new one that I have that is still in the box.I would like to get this done
      soon,what openings do you have to do this?

      Thank you,Michael

  3. It would take about 1 to 2 hours to remove the old faucet and replace it with a new one if the water shutoff valves are in good condition. Including 30 minutes for driving time and $5 worth of supplies my estimate would be $80 to $130 at $50-hr labor.

    However if the shutoff valves are rusted and old and start to leak once you turn them off to replace the faucet then it may take 2 additional hours to replace 2 shutoff valves. In that case Including 30 minutes for driving time and $5 worth of supplies.

  4. I charge $60-hr and most faucets I can change in an hour or less if there are shut offs in place. Normally I`d recommend replacing shut-offs at the same time as the older multi-turn ones almost always have small leaks after you turn them off and back on.

    Materials other than the sink faucet should run about $40 for 2 new shut offs and 2 new supply lines. So you are looking at $100 plus your faucet. Not all jobs are that fast as I`ve had to actually sweat pipes and cut off corroded faucets.

    Given that it is customer supplied 100 dollars is a great price would do it lower if other projects are included.

  6. With all supply lines and shut off valves in good working order I would charge 35.00 dollars a faucet and the work should take about an hour to 2 hours tops. Any other issues could raise the price.

    1. so if you spent 2 hours you are grossing $17.50 an hour, minus travel, time picking up supplies, gas, cost for insurance, etc.. you are making $4 an hour

  7. I usually charge 40 per bathroom faucet. However that price can fluctuate quickly if there is corrosion or leaking shut-offs.

  8. I need 4 bathroom faucets changed out. One in a 30″ cabinet, two in a 85″ vanity and the other one in a 48″ vanity. I also need 3 smoke detecctors replaced due to discoloration. I have all the materials.

  9. I charge a flat fee for the job so the customer saves money and the job is done right. My moto is you save money the first time.

  10. What should I charge to install a new sink and vanity in a bathroom and to replace the valve stem in the faucet on the bathtub
