Whether you are buying your first appliance of this kind or replacing an old one, you need to think about plumbing in your dishwasher. “I will install it myself” – you say. Even though dishwasher installation does not require advanced plumbing knowledge, it is still a time-consuming process. Moreover, it involves heavy lifting and electrical work that you might not be able to do without professional help.
To save yourself from this challenging task, consider hiring a specialist.
But how much does a dishwasher installation actually cost? To help you answer this question, we’ve prepared an entire blog post dedicated to it. Read on to find out!
So, if you:
Then you are at the right place! Let’s start with how the price is being formed.
Each service has its specifics that affect the final price, so how much plumbing costs will differ. For dishwasher installation, we have pinpointed four significant price-determining aspects. Those are:
Regularly, dishwasher installation is an hourly-based service; therefore, the cost depends on the amount of work that professionals have to do. If you are replacing a similarly-sized unit, on average, it shouldn’t take more than an hour. However, if you haven’t had a dishwasher before, the technicians might need to install an electrical outlet and drain before fitting your appliance. This could increase the final price of the project.
If you want to dispose of your old appliance, there is a possibility to order an additional removal service. The technicians take the old appliance after the installation service is done and dispose of it in accordance with the recycling regulations.
In the kitchens, where there is no available space next to the existing water and drain lines, some carpentry and plumbing work might be required. It can involve anything from removing a cabinet to fit your appliance, to creating a separate island behind or across the sink.
Because different dishwasher models have different dimensions, you have to think in advance how to put it that way it won’t block your pathway or prevent cabinet doors from opening. If you want professional help with that, be ready to pay extra.
As we already mentioned, the cost depends on a variety of factors.
Plumbing services are generally charged for a minimum of one hour. After that, you are paying for each following half-hour. The average cost range of the dishwasher installation service in the UK varies between £55 and £100 per hour. Usually, an installation is done within an hour, therefore you shouldn’t expect to pay more than the hourly rate.
However, depending on the day and time of the appointment the hourly rates may vary. Usually, the appointments after 18:00 are charged at a higher rate. Weekend and bank holiday appointments tend to be more expensive as well.
The complexity of the installation will also determine the final price. Such additions as electrical and plumbing connection installation will require extra time and materials to complete the job, making the final price higher. Make sure to specify all your requirements in advance to avoid unexpected costs.
