"Probably it will cost you 300-500£ it s depends on the laborer experience and price.
A laborer with more experience it will charge you more, but the final result will be 100%
A beginner will charge you less, but the final result may be 60-70%"

"It all depends on how high we are talking about and the access to the pipes I.e can it be done off ladders or would you need a tower or even a scaffolding so I would need photos or come and look at it in person."

"Hi Debbie that an impossible question to answer unless someone visit.
1. How many pipes / junctions are involved
2. How easy or hard it is to access
That sort of thing.
I would probable be able to help you or know someone who could.
A Quick Look on wickes website will give you an idea of how much the materials are"

"Extent of Damage: Minor repairs such as sealing leaks or replacing a small section of the pipe will cost less than major repairs or a full replacement.

Pipe Material: The type of material (PVC, cast iron, clay, etc.) will affect the cost of both materials and labor.

Length and Accessibility: Longer pipes and those that are difficult to access (e.g., buried deep underground or under concrete) will be more expensive to refurbish.

Labor Costs: Labor costs can vary significantly depending on your location and the rates of local contractors.

Permits and Inspections: Some areas may require permits and inspections, which can add to the cost.

Additional Features: Installing new features like cleanouts, backflow preventers, or more advanced drainage solutions will increase the overall cost.

Here is a rough breakdown of potential costs:

Minor Repairs: Sealing leaks or patching small sections can cost between $100 to $500.
Pipe Replacement: Replacing a small section (a few feet) can range from $500 to $1,000.
Full Replacement: Replacing an entire drainage system can range from $2,000 to $10,000 or more, depending on the factors mentioned above.
Permits and Inspections: These can add another $100 to $500, depending on local regulations.
To get a more accurate estimate, it’s best to contact a few local plumbing or drainage contractors for quotes. They can assess the specific conditions of your drainage system and provide a more detailed estimate based on your needs."

"Depending on which paint you choose, the prices fluctuate. It requires surface preparation and possibly sanding or grouting. Manpower, travel and working time. approx 80-150 gbp. And for undecoat/primer and gloss or matt materials, for exterior, and sandpaper.
