These guys are amazing. They arrived on-time, were polite/friendly, and finished quickly. Given the current state of things, they provided no contact service, work face masks, and gloves. Excellent service!

We have used Boston Standard Company for all our heating, AC and plumbing for several years now. As a retired general contractor doing residential renovations for 40 years, I would say they deserve 5 stars. Everyone who has come to our home and all the office staff have been professional, kind and knowledgeable. They have stayed in touch all the way along the process, from scheduling to actual on-site work. They have always been on time and proficient at fixing our problems and meeting all our needs. I would give them 6 stars if possible. and still they exceed expectations a year after I wrote this review and they just finished replacing 2 faucets.

Very professional plumber group. Every step, from setting up an appointment, to the job itself was executed at 5 star levels. Install was thorough and the follow up after the job included a specific write up with many pictures to confirm findings. Best option in town.

I have had great luck with the plumbers sent to my home. Not only did Elvis m. and Frank M. take time to explain everything they, like the other people in your company were friendly and cooperative and worked fast and efficiently. Your workers are your strongest value to your company.

Common Plumbing Questions

Find answers to your questions about plumbing service below.

How much should a plumber cost?

How much a plumber costs can depend on the job.

Plumbers typically charge either a set service fee or an hourly rate. The average cost per hour can range from $45 to $400, with the typical job, such as repairing a toilet, costing a customer between $175 and $450. The average service fee for a plumber is usually $300.

What are common plumbing problems?

Common plumbing problems include the following:

• Poor water pressure
• Clogged sink and bathtub drains
• Constantly running toilets
• Jammed garbage disposals

Many of these modern, domestic inconveniences arise from normal, everyday use: calcium buildup in the faucet, hair in the shower drain, or leaky valves in the toilet.

While homeowners can attempt to fix some of these common plumbing problems, a professional plumbing service may offer safer, more effective solutions.

Why is my plumbing backing up?

Your plumbing may be backing up because it’s clogged.

When water backs up out of a drain or plumbing fixture, such as the toilet, tub, or faucet, it’s usually a sign that your main sewer line is clogged. If your drains are making a gurgling sound and the water in the toilet or faucets is bubbling, then it’s likely time to call a professional plumber in to clear the sewer line.

Will a small water leak seal itself?

No, a small water leak will not seal itself.

Even the smallest of water leaks can pose a huge threat to your home or business: water damage. The cost of repairs and restorations could only go up as the leak grows bigger—and they usually do.

Applying an epoxy, such as plumber’s putty or caulk, to the leaky pipe can be a temporary, DIY fix until you can call a professional plumber for a permanent solution.

Does home insurance cover plumbing problems?

Yes, home insurance covers some plumbing problems.

Homeowners’ insurance typically covers plumbing problems that occur suddenly and without warning, for example burst pipes or exploded dishwashers. However, most homeowners’ insurance covers only water removal and mold prevention services and drywall, floor, and carpet replacement. The cost of replacing the pipe or appliance that caused the water damage usually isn’t covered.

Insurance companies usually will not cover plumbing problems resulting from neglect or normal wear and tear because they consider homeowners responsible for keeping up their properties, including the plumbing. This is especially the case with broken pipes in northern climates. If the insurance company finds that a homeowner’s pipe burst because they didn’t heat their home, the company would likely deny the claim.

How can you prevent plumbing problems?

Property owners can avoid plumbing problems by taking preventative measures. Common inconveniences, for example, a jammed garbage disposal or clogged shower drain, can be prevented by taking simple steps like not putting greasy, sticky, starchy, or hard items in the disposal and placing mesh screens over the shower drains.

Insulating pipes can help prevent them from bursting.

Regular inspections by a professional plumber can help homeowners spot and fix hidden issues like leaky pipes before they become big, expensive messes.
