Plumber Pricing Guide

Plumber Pricing Guide

What does it cost to hire a local plumber? A couple things to consider:

Different work takes different time, and different tools which can all affect the cost of a plumbing job. Even in the most common residential plumbing jobs, the costs can be wildly different depending on what needs to be done.

A simple toilet repair like replacing a wax ring or unclogging a drain can be as low as $100 whereas replacing piping for your home can cost thousands.

Plumbing jobs unfortunately are not as straightforward as say installing a new refrigerator. Home and businesses can be built decades apart, use different materials, adhere to outdated codes and so on. All of this adds some uncertainty to the job.

Often times it can be hard to provide an accurate quote until the plumber has fully inspected and diagnosed the problem and even then, unforseen issues can arise.

Difference between Joe the plumber and a plumbing company

Due to high plumbing costs it can often be tempting to hire a freelance plumber from places like Craigslist or other job marketplaces. However, this is not recommended. Many of these independent plumbers are not licensed, bonded or insured which can leave you with little options should something go wrong. They also often misrepresent their experience and skills which can leave them in over their head and you with an inadequate plumbing job that may need to be entirely redone.

It’s better to think of a plumber as more of a doctor than a delivery driver. Sure you may not care who delivers your pizza but you will definitely care who completes that surgery on your body. You certainly wouldn’t want a doctor from Craigslist and the same can be said here. Plumbing is a technical job which requires skill, training and experience.
