Like any service, it’s important that you hire a plumber within your budget. However, just as you don’t want to be overcharged for a service, it’s important that you’re aware of any ‘too-good-to-be-true’ prices. While opting for a cheaper tradie doesn’t always mean you’ll get a lower standard of workmanship, in some cases a less experienced plumber may undercut others as a way to reel in business. If you are finding that one tradie is significantly more affordable than others, it’s a good idea to ask them why their services are so much cheaper. Often the answer may be simple – such as using cheaper materials or having access to more affordable sub-contractors – and will provide you peace of mind that you’re getting both a budget-friendly and high-quality service.
