What a quote for the cost of plumbing your new home should include:
To save yourself getting a nasty surprise when those quotes come through, make sure you understand the different elements that your plumber will include in their estimate. The cost for plumbing a new home will be a combination of the price of the materials needed and the estimated number of labour hours required. Labour costs will be charged at an hourly rate, usually between $100 – $150, depending on the plumber. To make sure you’re getting an accurate quote, provide your potential plumbers with the architectural drawings and any other information about the project that you have. Things such as the number of bathrooms, the type of water heating system and number of fixtures which need to be installed in your new home will all affect the final costs.

Size doesn’t matter as much as you think:
Many people make the mistake of thinking that the size of their new home will be the biggest factor in determining the cost of the plumbing. While the square meters will make some difference, for example a larger home will need more piping, it is often not as important as you would think. Other considerations, such as the number of fixtures you need and the complexity of the systems you are installing, will play a bigger role in determining the final cost for new home plumbing. In many cases, the installation of plumbing in smaller homes can actually cost more because they require more complex piping systems, which will increase the labour hours.

The most important thing to remember when planning the plumbing for your new home is that this is absolutely not a DIY project. Only an experienced, licensed plumber who knows all the standards and regulations relevant in your state should be hired for such a project. It’s far better to pay a higher rate and know that your plumbing work is top-quality than to be left shelling out for repairs down the track thanks to a dodgy plumber!
