OK. 2 hours travel time, an hour and a half there, mileage. Just under five? Wait, I didn't figure in weekend rates.
Details:No charge for travel time.Took about an hour and a quarter. Just one section of pipe (hot water in kitchen was only place affected).Did not charge me for removing a lil' bit o' drywall under the sink for better access to pipe, though he should have, according to company.Under $500? Hahahahaha. Keep guessing.
OK, here's some insurance advice, depending on your deductible, if there was a drip from the pipe, the cost to get to it and cover it up is available from your carrier as an "accidental discharge." The cost of the repair to the pipe itself isn't covered; but, with creative billing, all the rest is.And, I've always said I want to be a plumber.
I'll go with $750... $175/hour, double-time for Sundays, and no fractional hours.What do I win?
Close: $711.Your prize? The knowledge that you're good at estimating plumber bills.
