In response to Re: Pedastal sink installation - $900 estimate
: We are removing a wall hung sink and installing a pedastal sink. A plumber recently gave me an estimate of $900 to do this job. Is that accurate or rediculously expensive?

Pedestal lavs are twice the challenge of installing a vanity. Ususally we have to make drain changes and get support in the walls. This is usually a four to six hour job. In my market (Wichita, KS) you would pay from $250. to $450. in labor. The decent lavs are about $150.00 and the faucet about a hundred. That's five hundred without dealing with the water lines.
The best thing would be to get more bids. Sometimes different plumbers have developed different techniques and see problems differently.
