The prices for tradesmen services varies a great deal from job to job and from trader to trader. With such a wide variety job quality and levels of service it is difficult to gauge whether you are getting a good deal or whether you are being ripped off. The costing pages below give examples of the prices that people have paid for certain jobs in the past and so can be used as an indicator of the price you should be paying. Note that there may be good genuine reasons for paying far more than these prices, perhaps due to much higher quality workmanship, or for paying much less than these prices. In either case if you have had a job done and would like to share the price that you paid, please let us know about it.
