Have you decided it’s time to ditch the leaky, drippy faucets and jump into a kitchen or bath remodel? Kitchen and bathrooms are an investment that will increase your home’s value and provide enjoyment for years to come. Here’s a couple of plumbing fixture tips that will help you be a savvier consumer. Not all fixtures are created equal!

Folks often ask why buy from Modern Supply versus a big box retailer. It’s our awesome staff, their years of experience and professional grade products! Brands such as Brizo, Porcher and others are only available from showroom retailers. Professional grade faucets are made with higher quality of materials—brass instead of plastic—to meet the requirements of plumbing professionals. You turn a faucet on-and-off a zillion times a week…don’t scrimp on quality! Replacing is ZERO fun.

Homeowners are installing awesome showers with lots of fab body sprays, rain shower heads and hand-held sprays. Simply delightful if the proper rough-in valves have been installed! The rough-in valve allows adjustments to the volume of water and temperatures. Gotta’ size it right to have enough water for all the jets!

Holy smokes! What if something is defective? We’ve got your back with replacement parts and even factory reps to help on big stuff if needed. Your satisfaction is super important to us!
