Whether you’ve just moved into a new home and you want to replace the existing kitchen sink, you’re planning an extensive remodeling project, or you need to have a new sink because your old one is damaged beyond repair, there are several considerations you want to take into account before you buy your new one. Not only do you want the new one to look good, you also want it to function properly. The professionals with Ben Franklin Plumbing Bay Area want you to be informed before making your choice.
Choosing the Right Material
Usually, a kitchen sink is made of one of composite materials, stainless steel or cast iron coated with enamel. If you have a granite countertop, or one made of man-made stone, you should probably go with a stainless steel model because it can be more easily mounted. Stainless steel is also a good choice if you tend to be rough on your sink. The lower the gauge of the steel, the higher quality the sink will be. If you’re worried about noise, there are stainless steel sinks that come with sound absorption technology.
While cast iron sinks are thought to be the best looking by many people, their enamel can wear over time and is susceptible to scratching. Composite sinks are typically less expensive and come in a variety of colors, but they aren’t as durable as their counterparts.
