Local Plumbers & Plumbing Services Near Me

Looking for a professional plumber in your local area? Whether you have a leaky tap or your drains are clogged, finding a reliable specialist near you is essential. That’s where our local plumbers come in.  

What can a local plumber help with? 

You can’t build or maintain your property without a qualified plumber. Their expertise is particularly important for bathrooms and kitchens, though they can help with a wide range of jobs, including:

  • Installing and repairing bathrooms, radiators, appliances, taps and boilers
  • Removing blockages in toilets and drainage
  • Detecting and repairing leaks in water and gas systems
  • Replacing old plumbing · Repairing burst water pipes (hire an emergency plumber here)

If you’re getting a bathtub or shower installation, you’ll need a bathroom specialist to figure out how to organise your bathroom fixtures.

Your plumber will need to be Gas Safe registered to carry out your annual boiler service or boiler installation. Otherwise, you’ll need to hire a heating engineer who is Gas Safe registered to do these for you.

Planning permission for plumbers

In general, internal works don’t require planning permission unless you live in a listed building. This includes kitchens and bathrooms, except when they’re part of a house extension.

For more details, visit the Planning Portal website or read our planning permission guide.

What should I consider when hiring a local plumber?

Whether it’s a broken radiator or a sudden loss of hot water, a local plumber can be a trusted help. This is why it’s really important that you choose a reliable plumbing company to carry out work on your home. Failing to do this can cause stress and expensive repairs.

Before you hire, you should do your research to ensure that your plumbers:

  1. Are an experienced company with a strong history of successful projects
  2. Have all the necessary licenses and insurance needed to protect you and their workers
  3. Have a good range of positive reviews from previous customers vouching for their reliability and professionalism
  4. Are offering the plumbing work you need, and are available to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it to be completed by
  5. Are quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other local plumbing companies

A local plumber is more likely to respond quickly – especially during an emergency – as they’ll be right around the corner and ready to help. Post a job today to find a professional plumber near you.


How much do plumbers cost to hire?

The cost to hire a plumber can vary quite a lot, depending on several factors:

  • Type of job: The complexity of the plumbing job greatly affects the cost. Fixing a minor leak will be less expensive than installing an entire plumbing system.
  • Location: Where you live in the UK can also impact costs, as prices differ from region to region.
  • Materials: Your choice of materials and fixtures for your plumbing project can significantly influence the overall cost.

That being said, on average, the cost to hire a plumber is between £40 and £80 an hour, or between £150 and £400 a day.

The qualifications your plumber needs

Are you licensed and insured?

Make sure to always ask your plumber what insurance they have before you hire them. If your plumber is carrying out gas work, they’ll need to be Gas Safe registered. Ask to see their Gas Safe card, then check their details by heading to the Gas Safe Register website. While it’s not a requirement for them to have it, it’s a good idea for your plumber to also have valid public liability insurance. This protects both you and your plumber should anything go wrong during the job, such as damage to your home or personal injuries.

How many years of experience do you have?

Asking how many years of experience your plumber has will allow you to pick a plumber who you are confident has enough expertise to carry out a high-quality job. When you’re finding a plumber through Rated People, head over to their profile to check out the pictures on their work gallery and their ratings and reviews.

Tips for a smooth experience with plumbers

  • Clear Communication: Articulate your expectations and budget clearly from the start.
  • Stay Updated: Regularly ask for project updates to preempt any issues.
  • Document Everything: Keep a written record of all agreements and changes, including costs and timelines.
  • Address Concerns Promptly: Communicate any concerns immediately to resolve them quickly and maintain a good working relationship.

Other plumbing FAQs

Does my plumber need to be Gas Safe registered?

For any gas-related work, your plumber must be Gas Safe registered to ensure safety and compliance with regulations.

Do you need planning permission for plumbing?

Most plumbing work doesn’t require planning permission, but significant alterations or new installations might. Always check local regulations.

What do plumbers do with the old materials?

Responsible plumbers will dispose of old materials following local environmental and waste management guidelines, often included as part of the service.

Newman plastering.  I am a one man band company, with just myself on the tools This means I have no overheads, so I am able to keep the cost down for my clients, but if needs be I can lay my hands on quality plasterers who share the same skill and passion for the job as me. range of services cover: * skimming plastering * Damproofing * External rendering * Dry lining * Internal rendering * Monocouche scratched renders(k rend) Why choose me? * friendly & reliable service * Many years of experience * Pay attention to health & safety * clean & tidy I have more than 10 years experience in all aspects of the plastering trade, and started learning the art of plastering with my uncle . By the time I was ready to leave school I was already becoming handy with the trowel and had some experience behind me, so I went on to do my apprenticeship and work with various other plasterers gaining more experience and learning my trade on housing sites and various  big commercial jobs, as well as doing the odd domestic and private jobs. What makes me different from most companies? Well, I actually enjoy what I do and love plastering, so you can be sure to get a top job. So now you know a bit about me, feel free to use me for your plastering needs.
