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.

Toilet repair £50 £100 £100 £200

The majority of problems that may lead to your toilet needing repairing will be down to clogging, overflowing or the flush not working properly. If using a plunger on the toilet bowl, or re-attaching the flush mechanism, does not solve the problem then you will need to call a plumber out immediately.

Expect to pay an hourly rate for a plumber repairing your toilet, which is usually a simple job for a professional. Your plumber should be able to locate the problem quickly and they should carry any common parts needed on his/her van.

Blockages are generally easy for a plumber to repair, but the problem can consume more time and thus become more expensive if there is a fault with the drain or the outlet to the sewer. The reassuring thing about paying for a plumber to effect repairs is that they will be able to rule out all possibilities, as well as liaising with neighbours or service providers when dealing with problems that require this.

Your plumber will also be able to repair any toilet seat problems. These usually occur where the toilet seat becomes loose and moves around or becomes uncomfortable. In repairing your toilet seat, your tradesman can replace nuts or screws as needed, as well as advising on whether it may be best to fit a new seat.
