Here is the scenario. The carpet and the wooden vanity in the bathroom have to be replaced in the bathroom after a sewage backup.

Approximately what cost should I expect to pay to have the American Standard toilet disconnected and then reconnected after the replacement flooring (tile) is put in and to have the old 48-inch vanity disconnected (we will dispose of it) and then replaced (again, after the flooring is put in) with a new vanity (already purchased 48-inch Allen and Roth Ballantyne vanity from Lowe's)?

The new vanity would have to be fit to the wall and perhaps levelled, the existing vanity top would have to be glued to the new vanity, and the faucets (centreset with hot and cold) would have to be connected.

I'm just looking for an approximate idea of plumbing cost (mainly labour presumably).

Hi Nate,

Those are very basic plumbing skills, any "handyman" type could easily do that for you, or with some basic tools and a little patience and learning, you could easily do these things yourself. But, if you DO want to hire it out, you'd be best to find a friend who has a little experience and have them do it, If not, a professional company can come do that for you, around $60-$80 and up per hour here in Sask. If you call in a pro, your min charge will probably be near $120. If someone asked for much more than that, it would be nuts!
