Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do plumbers charge per hour?

Depending on the service you need (unclogging a drain, fixing a pipe, installing new pipes, etc.), plumbers charge anywhere from $45-$165 per hour. Plumbers often operate on a fixed rate model, too. Some won’t charge hourly rates because the variables involved in their work makes it less practical to do so. 

Plumbers will scope out the work, calculate the cost of parts, and roll it together with other fees to give you an estimate for the job. They may even offer standard flat rates for things like installing a toilet or a sink. Reach out to plumbers near you to get an accurate cost estimate for your project or repair.

Does a plumber need to enter my home?

A plumber will need to enter your home to fix plumbing issues like dripping faucets, clogged sinks or toilets and leaky pipes. They might not need to come into your home if the faulty appliance is located outdoors or in the garage. Before you begin the project, contact plumbers near you to find out they will need to enter your home.  

How do I find a good plumber in Atlanta?

To find the best plumbers in Atlanta, search online for professionals. Review at least 10 business profiles to compare their services, customer reviews and past projects. Then, contact several plumbers and ask for a free estimate. 

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, check to make sure the plumbers have the proper license. For example, you can visit the Georgia Construction Industry Licensing Board to look up a license. Contractors should also be able to provide proof of insurance to protect themselves and you in case of injury on the job site.

What do you do if you have a burst pipe?

First, switch off the water supply to reduce the water damage. You should also turn off the electricity for the part of your home that has sustained the leak, as it can be extremely dangerous if the water comes into contact with an electrical socket. Next, drain the remaining water from your faucets so it doesn’t freeze inside the pipes. 

Once you’ve done all of this, search for qualified plumbers in your area and ask them to provide you with a quote. 

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a plumber during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If possible, it’s best to set up a virtual consultation or phone call with a plumber near during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can send a message to a professional plumber near you and ask if they are available to video chat or have a phone call. Use that time to discuss the work that needs to be done. Make sure to ask any questions you have about the project. And lastly, ask the plumber how they handle payments and whether they have any specific safety precautions in place to comply with social distancing. 

What happens when a water pipe bursts?

When a pipe bursts, the water can cause indoor flooding and damage your home. If the pipe is in an accessible location, you will likely notice puddles of water right away. However, if the pipe is underground or behind a wall, it may cause reduced water pressure, a sulfur smell or discolored water. All of this can cause significant (and expensive) damage, which is why you should always contact a plumber near you if you suspect your pipes are leaking.

How much does it cost to remodel a bathroom?

Nationally, the average cost of bathroom remodeling is $14,000. Bathroom remodels can vary widely, from standard makeovers to luxurious master bathroom revamps. The factors that affect your bathroom remodeling cost are the finishes you choose (marble tiles can cost 20 times as much as standard subway tiles), the square footage of the project, regional labor rates in your area and the scope of work. Changing the layout or size of the bathroom will also raise costs. Moving electrical wiring and plumbing lines will also dramatically increase costs, as you’ll need to hire plumbers and electricians to handle the work. What’s happening behind your walls and under your floor will also affect bathroom remodeling cost: Rot, damage or mold can lead to additional work and charges. Overall, bathroom remodeling may offer great return on investment and also improve your daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom remodeling costs:

  • 6-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $3,500, including labor and materials.
  • Standard renovation: $6,500-$10,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased. Labor may include taking out the shower and shower pan, installing new shower pan and shower, and installing new door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures.
    • Price variation depends on the quality of the finishes.
  • 10-foot by 6-foot bathroom remodel: $7,200, including labor and materials.
  • Mid-range renovation: $12,000-$15,000. Price includes labor and materials the customer has purchased.
  • Upscale renovation: $35,000 and up. Price includes labor and materials. Items might include digital displays for fixtures, multiple shower heads and custom showers.

Does insurance cover a broken pipe?

Sudden water damage may be included under most homeowners’ insurance policies, but it’s typically not covered if the damage could have been avoided with proper maintenance.

For example, if a pipe in your laundry room suddenly bursts and causes damage to the flooring and walls, that is usually covered by insurance. But if a pipe under your sink has been leaking for months and causes your wood floors to rot, your policy won’t cover that damage.

Always double-check with your insurance agent (or another expert)  to see what your policy covers.

What are the signs of a burst pipe?

If your water pressure has suddenly dropped or your sink and toilet have unexpectedly started clogging, you may have a burst pipe. Other tell-tale signs include watermarks on the wall of your bathroom or laundry room, drips or puddles in your home or basement, or water from your faucets that have suddenly turned brown. You may also notice a strange rotten-egg smell or the sound of gurgling water in your home.

If you notice any of these signs, contact a plumber near you to fix your pipes immediately.

How much does it cost to repair a broken pipe?

The national average cost to repair broken pipes ranges from $120 to $170. Prices can vary depending on the type of damage, whether the pipe is easily accessible, the materials needed and where the pipe is located. For example, an exposed pipe under the sink will likely cost much less than a pipeline in your yard that requires digging. 

Your overall cost will also depend on the hourly rate of the contractor. Most plumbers charge between $60 and $65 per hour for standard pipe repair, and up to $95 per hour for complex plumbing work. 

Contact the best pipe repairers in your area to find out how much it will cost to fix your pipe(s).

John is very reliable and communicates well in scheduling appointments — a refreshing change for hiring a plumber! His pricing for reattaching faucet fixtures and plumbing for a new bathroom vanity seemed reasonable. Will hire again!

I couldn't be happier with the work that Rich and his team did. We had a sewer line problem on a Sunday and he came out and cleared the line the same day. It's been a recurring problem and he was the first plumber to accurately locate where the block was occurring and why. He also took a look at a bathroom reno I'm working on and gave me a part I need to finish a project. All at a very fair price. If you're looking for a conscientious and professional plumber that goes above and beyond, look no further than Mclaughlin LLC!

I don’t know where to start with the horrible experience with this plumber/plumbing company, as the experience was so outrageous. We contacted him to figure out why we were getting a sewer smell in our home coming from the shower. He sent an employee, and said employee literally broke our bathroom faucet (snapped off the lift rod), while also failing to diagnose the issue. So, they broke an appliance unrelated to our problem, while also not addressing our actual problem. We patiently tried working with him for THREE+ MONTHS to just simply fix the faucet they broke, and we were under pressure to get this fixed because another family was moving in. I followed up with him upwards of 22 times (literally) during this 3-4 month period to try and get resolve. He had no sense of urgency, took days to acknowledge receipt, and completely gave us the run around, blatantly making promises to get another replacement part, fix the issue, buy a new faucet, etc. This has been such a pathetic experience, and we will be filing a claim. You can’t go into someone’s house, break their stuff, and then lie for months claiming that you will fix the appliance you broke. He should not be on this platform, and the reviews and ratings here are not at all indicative of the lack of professionalism and ineptitude we experienced. Attaching 4 screenshots of our conversation, as that’s all this app will let me do - but as you can see, he never once took initiative to follow up independently. By the way, he still has not made the situation right. I am a patient person, but it’s enough.
