plumbing rates. Ontario


I have opened everything up in this reno , ceiling, concrete and walls. Two floors and basement. I have been quoted 600 per fixture, does this seem right? I have about 10.

Pricing is not discussed on here. Because everyone in here live all over the globe. What may cost me to have something done. May be considered too cheap where you live.

What you got quoted can be over the top luxury pricing in my neck of the woods.

It is like walking into your local Butcher shop and be quoted $160.00 for a good quality Prime Rib.

Then walk in the grocery store and see Prime Rib there, it is priced $85.00, which you think is a good deal, so you buy it and take it home.

After you cook it. You find that it is all fat and barely any meat to it. With the meat part being really tough to chew.

You get my drift?

Jayne, Greg is right, as an international site, pricing questions seldom end well--

That being said, $600 per opening is a price I haven't seen in 20 years--so if it was Illinois--it would be a bargain---make a call or two---

Also , be sure each plumber is offering the same level of service---some will have permit costs included--or return to do the final hook ups---the cheapest may be overlooking something you expect to be included---

I understand pricing varies that is why I divulged my location. I only need rough in for inspection. Every thing is open like new construction.

So is it not better to ask for an hourly rate, as total is 6000 say $100 per hr, would it take 60 hers to cut glue splice pipe and add drains?

I can't guess at your hours to construct---or the typical rates for plumbers or permits in your area---As mentioned before ,call in another plumber for a quote---

All contractors have various pricing for different customers---
A plumber will work for a contractor for less that a homeowner ,usually.

Price can be affected by difficulties at the site--from bad parking to protecting the area so no collateral damage will happen.

The fellow might be swamped with work and upped his price.

Customer might have made him nervous and worried about the ability to pay or organize the job so his work can be done efficiently---

So make another call---get another quote----get a referral from a friend if possible.

Just make sure who ever you hire does the permit and inspection with all test part.

Ontario is a huge place. Just in Toronto alone you will find pricing differences from area to area.

Go Bluejays!
