Plumber and his tools

What’s the Difference Between Flat-Rate Versus Hourly Plumbers?

Plumbers usually charge either by the hour or by the job.


When a plumber charges by the hour, you pay for exactly the amount of time and materials the plumber needs to complete your repair.


However, when a plumber charges you a flat rate, you pay a predetermined amount based on the maximum amount of time and materials, which is well over the normal amount. For example, whether the job takes 20 minutes or 2 hours—since you’re not paying the actual costs of labour and materials—flat-rate pricing ultimately costs you, the customer, more money.


When shopping for a plumbing repair, always go with a name you can trust. At Aaron & Son Plumbing & Drains, we’re family owned. Our pricing is fair and upfront.
