Paying for Commercial Plumbing RepairsEvery business imaginable runs on a tight operating budget to maximize profits. Although your budget may allow for minor repairs and installation services, when a major problem affect your plumbing system it’s important to find a plumbing service that can deliver excellent service at reasonable prices. Getting an estimate shouldn’t be a hassle and it shouldn’t be a guessing game. No matter which plumbing company you choose, there are across-the-board variables that affect every job. While prices may vary slightly depending, there shouldn’t be a wide disparity in costs from among the estimates you receive. To help you understand projected costs, let’s take a moment to go over what every estimate or “bid” should include. Labor – The bid should outline how many worker hours will be necessary to finish the project in the desired timeframe. Tools – Projects that require specialized equipment may have a higher cost estimate. Make sure these costs are listed on the estimate. For example, if excavating equipment is needed for extensive sewer liner repairs, this should be clearly stated in the bid. Materials – Some companies use a different quality of materials, which can affect the price of the job slightly. You may pay more for different material grades. Warranty – Does the job include a warranty or is this something you’ll pay extra for? If warranty protection is extra, make sure it is listed on the bid. Other factors that go into estimating the cost of a project, but are not necessarily listed in the bid, include the following:
- Service area – Businesses outside of the local service area may pay more for travel costs.
- Priority – Emergency plumbing services may come at an additional fee. Rooter Hero Plumbing doesn’t add fees for emergency repair service, but many plumbing companies do.
