How are the prices calculated?

The cost of a plumber that can be calculated depends very much on the work that has to be done. The number of kilometers driven to a job is also an important aspect.

The costs of an average plumber are between 39 and 55 dollars per hour, this is an average price for the hourly rate.

In addition to the hourly rate, a plumber can also calculate the call-out costs per 10 cents per kilometer. It is also possible that the plumbing company charges standard call-out costs.

The average price of this is around 39 dollars depending on the number of km that has to be driven.


The activities that are often carried out by the professional per hour are: Placing a shower tray or placing a shower screen, so the smaller jobs.

But a plumber is of course indispensable for a complete renovation of your home. Just think of the bathroom and all sanitary facilities.

The installation of gas and water connections is also taken care of by a plumbing company.

A plumber can also take on a job in its entirety and offer you a fixed price. The most frequently performed work is, for example, solving a roof leak or having a new central heating boiler installed.

Urgent job or not?

If you urgently need a plumber, this can of course affect the total price. If you suffer from a leak, you will of course want to call in a plumber as soon as possible.

Keep in mind that a plumber will charge a little more than the normal rate.
