Wilmington Plumbers

With its picturesque waterways and quick access to the Atlantic Ocean, it’s no wonder Wilmington has become such a hot spot for movie and TV filming. Living here can be quite a beautiful experience, but that lovely lifestyle is easily interrupted if your house’s plumbing system is on the fritz. Whether you’ve got a backed-up toilet or a hot water heater that doesn’t seem to produce anything close to warm, plumbing is one of those essential elements of modern living that can have a huge impact on your quality of life.

Local Plumbing Cost Information

Adding yet another dimension of enjoyment to life in Wilmington, plumbing prices here tend to be well under the national average. The national average cost to hire a plumber as reported by our users is $280, but in Wilmington, that average is just $165. That’s a big difference that could allow you to tackle a more ambitious project than you originally intended, like replacing a bathtub instead of just getting a drain unclogged. However, the cost for each plumbing project is different, and you should set a budget and get quotes from multiple plumbers before making any commitments. This table of local price ranges should help you get a better idea of what your budget may be.

Licensing for Plumbers

The State of North Carolina licenses plumbers through its State Board of Examiners of Plumbing, Heating, and Fire Sprinkler Contractors. While you can technically hire an unlicensed plumber for minor repairs without anyone being in violation of the law, it’s best to opt for a licensed plumber to take on repairs and installations of any kind. The state may not require licensure for smaller-scale repairs, but a plumber who only has experience at this low level may quickly get in over his or her head if things go wrong with the repair. You should also always get everything in writing before letting a plumber work, and be wary of any plumber who asks for payment in full up front—pay a deposit and the remainder when the work is complete if it’s a larger project.

Where Do Plumbers in Wilmington Work?

There are a number of plumbers based in Wilmington, and there are plumbing professionals from other parts of the state, even as far west as Asheville, who are willing to work on homes in the Wilmington area. Citizens of surrounding areas, from coastal towns to communities further inland, are likely to find a reputable plumbing contractor to help solve residential plumbing problems. Whether you’re in Wrightsville Beach or Wrightsboro, quick access to state highways and Interstate 40 makes the greater Wilmington area an easy place for plumbers to work.

Local plumbers are available to service all of Wilmington’s neighborhoods, including the popular River’s Edge area. This family-friendly space is known for its exceptional public and private schools, shopping malls, and restaurants. Homes here lean toward the classic, regal side of the architecture spectrum, but many are new and only require routine plumbing maintenance, such as clearing clogged drains. Like River’s Edge, The Cape is another neighborhood with great schools and shops. Residences here are lower-priced and tend to make great starter homes for young singles, couples, and families, so it’s important to keep plumbing functioning perfectly. Houses here sell quickly, so you want yours to be good to go.
