The largest cost considerations are your location, the materials needed, and the complexity of the job. You will also have to factor in the cost of supplies needed to complete your job. Remember to get all of this in writing during the quote process so you know the price break down before you agree to have the plumber start working. Plumber Cost Per Hour
Before trip fees and materials, the average rate is $91 to $156 per hour. Rates can vary, with some coming in as high as $260 and as low as $58. Included in this hourly rate is the plumber’s wage, insurance premiums, union dues, overhead, equipment, vehicle maintenance and lease, and tools. Plumber Flat-Rate Prices
If your plumber offers a flat-rate, this will usually run somewhere between $130 to $520 for simple service calls, such as fixing a toilet or faucet or unclogging a drain. The more complex a job is, the more time it will take and parts and labour charges will be higher.
