For all your plumbing needs...
Hourly Charges: For general "call out" work the first hour is charged at £60 with subsequent hours charged at £42.50 per hour. My half day rate
kicks in after 3 hours and remains at £145 for work taking up to 5 hours.
Half Day Rate: For work expected to take 3-5 hours the charge is a flat half day rate of £145.
Day Rate: For plumbing work expected to take longer than 5 hours the charge is a flat day rate of £200 per day. Bathroom installations and other such long plumbing projects will be charged at a day rate.
Please note; all my prices include VAT so there is nothing to add on top of my labour charges.
The above prices are for work completed in our normal business hours 8am - 6pm Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours any work will be classed as emergency work and will have a charge of £80 for the first hour and a charge of £50 per hour thereafter.
Please note, I give estimates and not quotes because given the nature of my work, in as much as a great deal of the plumbing in homes is hidden, it is often impossible to give an accurate quote of
how much a plumbing job will cost. For example, some jobs require a plumber to lift floorboards or to remove parts of a stud wall, and I can never tell what I will find once I’ve done this. As a
result of this, I provide estimates calculated to the best of my ability based on what I can see. Sometimes it will become apparent once the job has started that additional work is going to be
required which may increase costs in terms of materials, labour or both. If this is the case, you will be informed of any changes necessary. It’s not all doom and gloom though, quite often I’ve
lifted floorboards only to find some pre-existing plumbing work which I’ve been able to use to make big savings on both labour and material costs! If it is the case that fewer materials are used your
invoice will reflect this and will be less than the initial estimated cost.
Materials are priced at trade price +10% (subject to a minimum charge of £5 where items are purchased and collected specifically for a job. This £5 charge is not applicable if materials come from carried stock). This often works out cheaper than standard shop prices available to the public.
