03 Mar To fit a kitchen

Is your kitchen small? Large? It’s a full redesign or just replacement? It looks like there some questions that have been already answered for you and the price mostly is around the size of the kitchen and not on the other considerations. The price can be based on the small [10' x 6' (3.05m x 1.83m)], medium [0'10” x 10' 7” (3.30m x 3.22m).] and large [ 17' 6” x 12' (5.33m x 3.66m)] kitchens. This included removal of the cabinets and install the new ones. Please be aware that waste disposal is also charged. Still you have to consider the number of cabinets. On the top of this no decoration is taken in account. Alternatively you can replace the cupboard but then the same equation gets in for kitchen size: small, medium and large. Have you consider the tilling? No! Well that also will increase the price of the job. Is this only about the worktops replacement? Then is not a problem the price is as low as can be for the job.   As you can see there are so many conditions to have the kitchen fitted. A sacred place of the house and for the family cannot have details neglected. You should have first your plumber have an estimation and a clear assessment of the job details.

16 Jan To fit a shower

To fit a shower is very important to know if : is a power shower or electric shower. There are very important differences and probably the most noticeable are : the pump [the electrical one does not have it] and the way they are “fed” [power shower is fed with both cold and hot water on the other hand the electrical shower is fed only with cold water]. Most of the plumbers are presenting previous projects and prices on their respective jobs. They include also what had been required and by case if they provided the shower including the labor fees. Now you can start to think what else should be included  the costs and time estimates. If is a power shower then we should look if there are any cabling and pipework to be considered. Wall tiles damage included? Well include that too. Important to note that presented considerations are not complete. In the case of the power shower you should consider if it is required to move doors, rerouting and connect the waste  to new drain positions; fixings and wood panels; ;fit a new quadrant shower tray; seal shower and skirting. Is there and extractor fan to be added? Then let’s consider this too. Not the last we should understand that no job in the bathroom is mess free and there is waste to be disposed of. This increases the price of the job. You can hire a skip and then the overall price is lower than when you let the plumber do...

13 Dec To replace toilet

What kind of toilet have to replace with? It is a simple, high-tech throne, no-frills or pisoar? Do you really need to replace the toilet when the filling is slow and flushing is not quick enough? Probably at this stage is very important to remember that the model and the style of the toilet you choose will weigh heavy in the cost of the installation. The most common toilets are round toilet bowls or elongated toilet bowls. However, you should check the toilet efficiency as understanding the flushing mechanism and the effect of the flushing power. This will impact the quantity of the solid material the toilet can flush down the drain and the water consumption (not an element to neglect if you want to save the world). In the replacing process [of the toilet] you should also consider the problems that could occur: unexpected leaks, cracked flanges which will cause wobbling toilet, improper ring seal, poor caulking or leaky flush valve. As we can see there are many things to consider when for a simple job we can be charged extra and the amount of time spent on the job is over the customer budget. Therefore you should always get an estimate with the plumber visiting the job site. An honest and open discussion should be taken and asses properly any risks. ...
