What prices reveal about plumbing
The price of a plumbing service will determine many things. Firstly, it will evaluate the plumbing company you choose to hire. You wouldn’t hire a plumber who you can’t afford to pay. But plumbing costs can also determine the level of quality of the service provided or the honesty of the company providing it. If a company doesn’t value their own work enough to charge at least close to the average price for it, why should you? On the other hand, if a company is high balling their prices, you should be wary of the fact that they may not be giving you the most honest evaluation of the situation.
So how do you know what the appropriate price for a service should be? Review sites like Home Advisor can help you figure that out, or you can keep reading to learn about a few specific services and their average costs.
Pipe Leaks’ Average Cost
On average, you can expect to have a low price. But keep in mind that finding the location of the leak, if it is not known, is an additional service that can cost extra.
Another thing to take into consideration is that if the water leak is behind a wall, your plumber will have to make a hole in the wall to get to the pipe. This could result in another payment for drywall repair, depending on how big the hole is and where it was made, the prices will vary.
If the leaking pipe is located under your yard, you should consider the cost to fix any landscaping that was affected by the water or by the repair process. Make sure to ask if the price includes the leak location diagnosis and the replacement of your drywall or landscaping.
Cost of Clogged Drains
Clogged drains are typically among the lower cost plumbing services. This is because in most cases a clogged toilet or sink drain can be fixed easily with a plunger, so a plumber may not even be needed.
Even in cases of more severe clogs, where a plumber is needed, clogged drain repair shouldn’t cost you your life savings.
How Much For a Dripping Faucet?
Dripping faucets are another relatively inexpensive plumbing fix. Their prices depend on the area and the actual state of your faucet, along with the size of the job.
Your plumber should be able to take a look at components like the O-ring and stem screw, washer, and valve seat of your faucet to give you a more accurate estimate.
