Setting the right budget

How much should you expect to pay?

We know it's difficult to estimate how much a project will cost, that's why we've surveyed our tradesmen to give you an idea of how much you should expect to pay for specific jobs. Tradesmen all across the country have contributed to the cost guides, so the costs you see are an approximate national average.


Low High
Sink blockages £50 £100

Blockages that occur in your kitchen or bathroom can be down to anything from food waste and fat, to hair or items that have been dropped down the sink. These are common problems and your plumber should be able to remove any blockage, even if using a plunger or an unblocking product such as caustic soda has not worked.

Removing a blockage will usually just mean undoing the pipes beneath your sink and removing any accumulated waste. But your plumber may have to use tools such as a flexible snake hose to feel out deeper problems. If tools cannot break up or remove any blockage simply your plumber will have to investigate the pipework itself, which can be a painstaking process that can take a good deal of time, especially when dealing with pipes that run beneath the floor. Pipework may have to be cut and replaced to removed blockages, with outside pipework needing the once over as well. Any corroded, damaged or cracked pipes will also have to be replaced.
