To find a contractor to install a sink dispenser ask friends and neighbors for a referral, use the Yellow Pages or an online contractor referral service. Another option is to buy the sink dispenser at a home or kitchen/bath center where an installation service is offered. Usually there is a tag on the fixture indicating the "installed price". Most stores offer the traditional cash-and-carry price as well as the installed price that covers installation. The retailer arranges for a pro to do the installation and is responsible for both scheduling the job and of course, your satisfaction.
Here are the basic points that should be included in a written contract havae a sink dispenser installed:
- Description of the work to be completed with a detailed description of the sink dispenser to be used (brand name, style, and other specifications)
- Cost of material and all warranties from the manufacturer
- Cost of labor and amount of deposit, if required
- Job installation date
