When you hire bluefrog Plumbing + Drain to install, repair or replace your plumbing fixtures, we automatically look for the best solution that will avoid bigger leaks and plumbing issues in the future. If you own a business, our courteous professionals work discreetly with the least possible impact on your employees and customers.
If you have hard water, it could be causing damage to your fixtures and pipes. Hard water contains abrasive materials that can wear down your plumbing fixtures. This can greatly reduce their lifespan. If you wish to replace your fixtures with ones that can better withstand hard water, let us know and we can make a suitable recommendation.
There are many factors that go into deciding whether to replace plumbing fixtures. If you’re remodeling and need a new look or have an aging plumbing infrastructure, it’s probably time to replace leaking fixtures.
We have assisted many homeowners in finishing up their kitchen and bathroom remodels with beautiful faucets and other fixtures. We can steer you toward reliable brands known for their longevity as well as their aesthetic qualities.
When choosing replacement plumbing fixtures, materials make the most difference in terms of longevity and performance. Partnering with a qualified plumber can ensure a great outcome for your next plumbing project.
Most plumbing fixtures come in metal with a variety of finishes. You can choose from brushed, antique or polished veneers. However, whichever finish you choose, keep in mind that you want a sturdy fixture that isn’t likely to leak anytime soon.
Lightweight copper resists corrosion and is a popular choice for plumbing fixtures and pipes. On the downside, copper doesn’t work well with well water, and it is more expensive than other materials.
Our insured and bonded plumbers also install plumbing fixtures made of stainless steel. This is one of the most common materials for faucets and other fixtures due to its attractive appearance. However, it’s heavier than some other materials, which can be a factor in large commercial builds or remodels.
Believe it or not, some people use gold in their plumbing fixtures. This durable material has a real glam factor and is easy to clean. It’s one of the most expensive plumbing fixture options and may be hard to find.
It’s difficult to find a material that is more durable and versatile then inexpensive chrome. Polished chrome looks particularly sophisticated and upscale. Because of its popularity, chrome is easy to find. Keep in mind that water spots often form on chrome fixtures. If you’re a cleaning fanatic, chrome may prove to be a challenge.
Nickel is like chrome and easier to clean. However, it has a darker color that matches well with many interiors. Because it’s not the most popular material, you may have a hard time finding matching fixtures. Our plumbers also install nickel faucets and sinks for remodels and new construction.
Brass is another versatile material you can find almost universally. On the downside, brass isn’t as durable as some alternative materials, so we recommend going with a more durable option.
One of the most expensive options, bronze is easy to keep clean and find in stores. It matches well with antique and traditional décor.
Whatever materials you choose should fit within your budget. Remember to leave room for labor so that you can hire a professional plumber to install the plumbing fixtures. Choosing high-quality materials means that you won’t have to replace them anytime soon.
If you tend to run for the expensive, factor in how much the fixtures can increase your home value before committing to high end, pricey fixtures.
No matter how much money you save on buying inexpensive fixtures, you should consider leaving the installation to professionals. bluefrog Plumbing + Drain plumbers take extra care to avoid scratches and dings that can ruin the impact of your new fixtures.

I had Patrick with Blue Frog Plumbing out to my house today and he was wonderful. I had a problem with low water pressure and two other plumbing companies could not figure it out. Patrick has 30 years of experience and was able to fix our problem. Blue Frog has my business from now on. Thank you.
Patrick was friendly and professional! Montana dispatched him promptly when I called, and Patrick took care of my plumbing issue quickly! I really appreciate the efficiency and quality work. Thanks bluefrog Plumbing + Drain!
Patrick was wonderful! I had him come address a few issues, including my master bathroom shower water pressure. The water pressure has been so low for years that I had been using the guest bathroom. After Patrick finished his repairs, my master shower had better water pressure than before! I finally have my master bathroom back! Thank you!
