Finding a local plumber

When looking for a local plumber the number of choices can be overwhelming. This is where Plentific comes in, giving you a list of the best tradespeople in your local area that offer the exact services and skills you require. Each and every job booked via Plentific will also be covered by the Plentific Guarantee.

A plumber’s role can range from fixing a leaky tap to maintaining a boiler, so the thing to remember is to be specific about what you need. Know as much about the job as you can. You do not need to know everything (that's one of the reasons you need a professional, after all), but have as much of an idea as possible of what the job at hand requires.

What do you need to know about finding a local plumber?

Plumbing is a job that covers several different services. Is your task related to water plumbing or sanitation? Drainage or gas? Make sure you know what your problem is before you look for a plumber. They may be able to offer you advice on other work that needs doing, or even point out areas where you could save money.

If you are working with other tradespeople or an architect, it is likely that they will have a local plumber they can recommend. If not, take special care in examining a plumber’s references and credentials, and be sure to compare prices to avoid being overcharged. For long term projects, this will be someone you will need to have a trusting professional relationship with: no matter how confident they seem, make sure they can back up their confidence with experience and referrals. There are also a number of organisations that tradespeople can join to show their level of expertise, such as the Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors.This may sound obvious, but also ensure that the plumber you choose is fully licensed, meaning that they are registered with a local authority. A quick cash in hand deal may seem appealing, but remember the risks involved and play it safe.

When discussing the job, the plumber should specify whether you will be paying an hourly or flat rate, and when they expect to be paid. If they need to bring in other labourers, check their qualifications too and whether this will incur extra costs. The same goes for if they need to bring in additional parts or equipment.

The end of the job is also worth considering. Will the plumber clean up after themselves, or will they leave materials behind? Will it cost you to have waste materials removed? Be sure to check if they offer any kind of guarantee or insurance - will they fix anything they break? If there is an issue with their work, or if you are not satisfied with the end result, will they return and fix it? If they do offer a guarantee of this kind, get it in writing!

A good local plumber will be able to answer all of these questions. If they can’t, you may want to continue your search.

What does a plumber do?

Plumbers fit or maintain the piping apparatus in your home related to water, heating and sanitation. You might need to call one for a leaky tap, boiler repair, bathroom fittings or a number of other services. When building a new home or simply maintaining the one you have, having a good plumber on hand is essential, whether for long term projects or dire emergencies.

How much does it cost to hire a plumber?

The price your plumber will charge will depend on the size and nature of the job. It can be good to ask for the price of individual services when your plumber will be taking on a larger project. Your plumber may charge you a flat or hourly rate, and there may be additional fees for rushed jobs or if they need to purchase additional parts. Again, know as much about your job as you can, as this will make it easier for a plumber to give you a quote.
