I have someone fitting my small bathroom who is a plumber from Iran. He will fit a new bath, sink, toilet flush (toilet ok) a shower and some tiles - I'm not sure what to pay him - we know him from church & he just says "pay me what you think" I don't want to exploit him but want to save a bit of money if I can. We live in the Borough of Greenwich (south east London). Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks
Maybe ask him how long it will take and come up with a day rate that seems fair - it sometimes easier to guess at a day rate than "what is the job worth?". Then offer him the number of days he's estimated times the day rate, then it won't cost you more if he overruns but you'll know what you've given him was fair based on his own estimation of the work (unless some obvious hurdle comes up that you think fairly took more time to fix, then I'd pay more).
Think we paid around 3-3.5k for fitting for each of the ensuite and the main bathroom. Had them done separately. That was just fitting/labour and inc fitting bath/bath cubicle, overhead shower, sink with unit, toilet with unit, wall cupboard, tiling/panels, flooring, new radiators, ceilings being smoothed and painted, some walls painted, and extractor fans and lighting.
