I need a tie-breaker (or two) on a debate on how to install a pedestal sink.
I received 2 estimates from Plumbers to put the new sink in a half bath that we recently gutted. One plumber says it is a "must" to remove part of our drywall in order to install wooden supports (behind where the sink will be) to anchor the bowl of the pedestal sink to. (This will cost more money for the plumber to do, as well as to restore the walls to a finished condition). The other plumber said it is not neccessary to go to that trouble, and that you can simply use wall toggles, or similar anchors to the drywall to secure it in place. I would prefer to complete this project as cheaply as possible, but I don't want do it wrong either. Please chime in if you have any advice...
