mike.m Posted January 23, 2009 Share Posted January 23, 2009 Hello, We've had a burst pipe ( central heating pipe underground but luckily only two feet from the rad ). I contacted the artisans who had put in a new boiler and ballon over the summer . Their work and approach had been excellent and I was confident they would do a good job . When they arrived it was a new face who had just taken over the business .The work was solid ; three hours digging ; two hours fitting a short replacement pipe ; an hours refilling and bleeding the system . One man (a young employee ) six hours in total .The bill arrived and I was disappointed at the total of almost 500 euros . The work on the new installation had taken 8 man days for 1400 euro. I think I had a good deal on theearlier work and have been overcharged by the new owner for the repair. Before I approach the man I would appreciate any feedback from wiser heads ; am I being unrealistic in thinking 500 is too much for less than a days work ( next to no material costs ) ? Does anyone have an idea of the hourly rates for this kind of work ( Burgundy ) . Many thanks for advice Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
