About Us

Are you curious to find out what others are paying plumbers and heating engineers to carry out repairs and new installations?

Perhaps you are setting up a business yourself or a consumer seeking a guideline price.

Plumber’s Rates is a website created by two former plumbers based in the South East of the United Kingdom.

Our Aim

The plumbing and heating industry in the UK has a reputation for overcharging and often poor workmanship.

Our goal is to provide realistic price guides for common jobs around the home.

We have tried to explain the costs of materials, labour and the profit margins small/medium type businesses expect to achieve.

We also hope to explore some of the common tricks of the trade that some traders use to bump up profits – at your expense.

Our Price Guides

This website was created in early 2016 and we will be updating the cost guides on a yearly basis. The guides are based on prices for the south and south east of the United Kingdom.

If you live outside of this area then the prices will need to be adjusted accordingly. London is the most expensive area to have work carried out. The far west and north are the cheapest.

We hope that you will find this site useful but don’t forget these are just guide prices for a specific plumbing or heating repair/installation. If you require a fixed price, we suggest you contact at least three local plumbers and gather written quotes.
