What do you need to know about toilet installation or repair?
Toilet installations can be extremely simple. If the piping is already in place you do not even need a qualified plumber to do the work and can instead hire a handyman. Costs will usually include removing and disposing of the old toilet, though you should make sure of this by asking for a price breakdown. You may even be able to save money by disposing of it yourself. Assuming all of the pipework and so on is in place, installing a toilet will usually cost around £115. Many plumbers and handymen will offer rates instead, but it is better to get a firm quote.
The cost of repairing a toilet may to include a call-out fee, and rates will be higher if you need a tradesmen outside of normal working hours or on the weekends. The cost will also depend on the price of any additional parts. Generally speaking you can expect to pay between £60 and £100. It goes without saying that unlike toilet installations, when it comes to repair it is important to have a qualified tradesman, so make sure your hire is a certified plumber.
It is important to check customer reviews and ratings for your tradesmen. These will be available on Plentific, but a professional should also be able to provide them directly. For installations it is a good idea to check if your tradesman offers a warranty for the unit. Make sure any tradesmen you hire are fully covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
