How much do plumbers make an hour?


Answer by  bubbyboy (9929)

Where I live plumbers make between $60.00 to $75.00 and hour. Some places the helper is paid by you also but usually it's much less. Plumbers in my part of Maryland get around $35.00 for just a service call with no work done.

Plumbers have two fees that they will charge you for. The first is usually $90 for the first hour. This means that if they show up to your residence, it will cost $90 if they are there for only 5 minutes. After that, the costs is about $70 per hour.

It depends on the cost of living in the local market, your reputation for service, and whether you own your business or are working for someone else. If you work for someone else, expect to earn between $15-25 and hour.

The charge for plumbers per hour depends a lot upon the area of the country you are living in. In our small town in the state of Iowa, we were charged $65/hr. for our last repair work. Good luck.
