Service Plumbers bill for their work one of two ways, Time & Materials Pricing or Flat Rate Pricing.

With the Time & Materials method; the plumber charges an extra “Service Fee” to get to the job, an hourly rate whilst he is on the job, and any materials were used to repair the plumbing. Often there is a 1 hour minimum labor fee and afterwards you are charged in 15 minute increments. With this method you only pay for the actual time required and materials utilized on the job… no more, no less.

A plumber using Flat Rate billing will invoice a “Diagnostic Fee” to determine your plumbing issue and then will offer you a flat rate quote to repair the problem. You know beforehand what it will cost for your service. If you do not want to proceed with the repair, you are only obligated to pay the Diagnostic Fee.

Do you guarantee your work?

A professional plumbing company is concerned with the safety and quality of their work. They should offer the homeowner a workmanship warranty and safety guarantee on their service.

I Hope these suggestions help you find the right plumbing company for the job!
