Leave Your Water Worries To The Experts With Christchurch Plumbers

Christchurch became a city way back in 1856, making it officially the oldest city in New Zealand.

As you would expect with any old city, Christchurch has undergone its fair share of development and refurbishment. Most notably of course after the horrific 2011 earthquakes that left the city as well as suburbs such as Lyttelton, Sumner, and Redcliffs with extensive damage.

It takes many years for a city to recover from such tragic events and with the recent completions of the new Tait communications hub and also the crown building, there is definitely no sign of Christchurch’s construction industry slowing down any time soon.

Christchurch Plumbers

With so much construction and redevelopment going on around chch and its surrounding suburbs it’s no wonder that of course plumbers are in high demand at the moment.

Jobs plumbers regularly do will include:

  • Fixing blocked or burst water pipes
  • Rectifying bathroom drainage issues
  • Fixing dripping taps
  • Help with waste disposal systems
  • Opening up walls and floor for piping
  • Repairing water heaters
  • and of course even finding that engagement ring you accidently dropped down the sink!

You may perform only minimal tasks around the home such as installing a dishwashers and changing taps and seal, everything else by law requires a plumber.

If you’re looking to hire the services of a plumber in Christchurch the average cost of a plumber is $90 per hour (the highest in New Zealand). Of course you will be able to find professionals either side of this bracket.

Finding the right plumber

With this in mind, you want to make sure that you’re getting not only someone that is qualified and licensed to carry out plumbing in New Zealand but also, and most importantly – the very best person for the job. All plumbers legally require certification, after undertaking a 4 year study course, so make sure to ask for their card to verify.

In the past, if you had quite a specific plumbing task that needed fixing often you could be trawling through the phone book getting ridiculous quotes or people coming out to your house or business only to say that “it can’t be done” for the price you’re looking to spend.

Luckily there is now Builderscrack, your one-stop shop for finding the right plumber for any job that you need done. All you have to do is post what you want done online and the area you live in and plumbers will apply for the job. The next step is the fun part, you get to see their previous reviews, references and, of course, compare prices and quotes.

This will assure you get the best person for the job - at the best price.

Homes On Show - Save My Bathroom

Behind every job there is a story. This one starts with a homeowner, and a vision to renovate her bathroom from an outdated 1970’s relic to a modern, clean, and functional bathroom. The Dilemma The story starts with Joanne and her first tradie, a referral from a friend. The tradie seemed great. The homeowner and the tradie agreed that Joanne would buy everything that was needed for the bathroom, and the tradie gave her a cost to install and renovate to her plan. Fast forward three months and the tradie was nowhere to be seen and uncontactable. With the goods for her bathroom waiting in Mitre 10 and a loan taken out for the project, Joanne was desperate to get the job underway. The Solution “I spoke to someone at work, saying I didn’t know what to do. I needed to have my bathroom renovated, and my colleague said, have you put it on Builderscrack? Then they showed me how Builderscrack works, how to log on and use the site. I put the advert on the next day, and within two
