We touched on this question a few years ago, but thought we would go over why your Oviedo plumber charges what he charges again. Many people think that plumbers charges are outrageous, for example most plumbing companies are charging $100 an hour or more, and if a plumber comes out and the job takes 20 minutes, the customer feels ripped off. This is far from the case if you go to a doctor, lawyer, or any service. They charge quite a bit and you have to drive to them. A plumber has to drive to you, which requires labor to drive, gas wear and tear on the vehicle, insurance on a commercial vehicle, workers comp, and then you have parts to make the plumbing repair. If you figure the cost for all of those things, the plumbing company really does not make much off of $100 an hour. You really do get what you pay for. If you want cheap labor you’re going to get cheap work, you’re going to get someone that cuts corners, and bottom line you’re going to get a handyman. If you have a flood and your insurance company finds out you used a unlicensed contractor, they can deny the insurance claim. So is saving a few bucks worth the risk? We don’t think so. Whenever you make your decision to make your plumbing repairs make sure they are a licensed plumbing contractor.
