We rarely recognise the value of a plumber until something goes wrong. Plumbing experts can be the difference between an unpleasant cold shower or a warm, heated water system. In the midst of a plumbing crisis, it can be difficult knowing if the price you're paying is reasonable. Whether it's a bursting pipe, an unflushable toilet or a faucet that needs an upgrade, the sooner you can connect with the right expert to attend to your plumbing needs, the smoother the outcome. While the final cost of a service can depend on many factors, comparing quotes can give you an idea of what to expect when you hire a plumber.
Experts can help with a mix of maintenance, repair, and installation of in bathrooms, kitchens and laundries. General plumbers ensure drains function as they should and that bathrooms are waterproofed. In the laundry, plumbers can help with the installation of taps or the maintenance of washing machines.
Plumbing is a skilled trade, requiring a certificate or a completed apprenticeship. Some plumbers can specialise in the installation and maintenance of gas fittings or hot water systems but further licences may be required for specific tasks, so always check an expert’s qualifications beforehand.
Some plumbers offer emergency help at any time of any day but may charge an additional call out fee. This will help you to feel at ease and know that someone will be there to help you when you need it. While it may be tempting to save time with a little DIY, there is a legal limit to the plumbing and gasfitting work you can do without a licence. For complex repairs, the work is best left to qualified experts.
From gutter repairs to the installation of rainwater tanks, some plumbers can help with any plumbing or pipe relocations outside your home.
