It can be puzzling to look at the array of faucets in the hardware store and try to pick out the best one. Prices are all over the place, but there is a reason for that. Although many faucets look alike, they’re not created equal on the inside. Faucets made of better materials, such as copper or brass, will carry a higher price. But they also offer better performance and a longer life.
Styling can also effect the price. Just like you will pay extra for a flashy new car, you will see the prices of the more stylish lines are higher than their more humble cousins. But you can also expect that the flashy designs carry top-rate parts. So take a close look at what you’re paying for and make sure you do spend a little extra to get a durable fixture.
