Getting plumbers in Lansing
With pipes freezing in our rough winters and systems in older homes that need to be upgraded or repaired, Lansing knows how to keep plumbers in business.
While all Lansing residents deal with brutal winter conditions, some neighborhoods have their own risks. Lansing has three rivers running through it: the Grand River, Red Cedar River and Sycamore Creek. Houses near these rivers or any other bodies of water heavily rely on sump pumps and are at risk of flooding if that system fails.
Other neighborhoods like Old Town, Northeast Lansing, Downtown and the Historic District all have a large number of older homes that may have failing or obsolete plumbing systems. If you live in an older home, be sure to ask any plumbing company you contact whether they have experience working on older plumbing systems.
The cost of plumbing repairs in Lansing
Many plumbers in Lansing charge hourly, but some charge fixed rates for certain types of repairs. Companies may also charge for travel time or add fees for emergency services. Be sure to ask about any fees or additional charges that will impact the total cost of your plumbing repair.

When comparing companies, make sure they are licensed and insured. The City of Lansing requires a permit if you are installing a water heater, but most repairs do not require a permit. Talk to your plumbing company to see what steps you may need to take before any work is done.
