The cost of hiring a plumber will vary depending on different factors such as:
– The city you live in.
Plumbers in more affluent areas and areas with higher costs of living are likely to cost more due to the higher overheads that come with operating in that area. For example, plumbers in Tunbridge Wells will likely cost more than plumbers in Burnley.
– The estimated time and materials that are required.
Plumbers will often charge by the hour. As a good rule-of-thumb, you should probably expect to pay somewhere between £20 – £40 per hour, though this can vary considerably. You’ll also have to pay for any materials required to complete the job.
– The time of day
It’s likely going to be more expensive if you hire a plumber during unsociable hours, weekends, bank holidays, or during periods like Christmas. Some plumbers, such as A.EB Heating & Plumbing Services, offer 24-hour call-out services. If it’s an emergency, and you need a plumber during the middle of the night, it’s probably going to cost you more.
