Plumbing franchises are one of the trades of Home Improvement, and plumbing businesses may not necessarily be just about plumbing. As a Plumbing franchisee, you might find jobs in other aspects of home improvement as well, such as gas, electrical and chimney sweeping. Home services franchises have diversified to include a range of services for clients, ensuring year-round business for franchisees.

Types of Plumbing Franchises

Plumbing and drainage related franchises can usually be run serving clients from commercial, domestic or both sectors. Plumbing generally refers to anything around working with pipes, so that includes gas, water and sanitation including drains, so its easy to see the potential market demand.

Frequently councils might outsource businesses for drainage cleaning, unblocking and the same can be said in a residential setting. Landlords will be responsible for repairing any problems with a property both before, during and after tenancy. Whilst the tenant is invariably responsible for the day to day upkeep of the property, things do go wrong and boilers may fail, pipes may burst and radiators may fail. It cannot always be said that it is a resident's responsibility to clear their gutter or drains, so which is why there will always be constant demand for plumbing and drainage related services. Here are some of the top types of plumbing franchises:

  • Drainage Franchises - Either in a domestic or commercial setting. The latter often allowing for repeat income from commercial clients. Top franchises include Dyno Rod and Metro Plumb.
  • Plumbing Franchises - May be diversified to allow year round business in all aspects of home improvement including chimney sweeping, security installations and electrical.
  • Security Franchises - Franchisees may be trained to fit security alarms and other safety devices in order to maximise the business a franchisee can obtain within their territory.

Benefit from a range of different clients, including councils, landlords and home owners. Even a small franchise territory can have considerable client potential.

Advantages of a Plumbing Franchise

If you enjoy working flexible hours and love meeting people, then a plumbing franchise could be right up your street. Whilst the admin work will usually be done from home (either by you, a team member or hired staff), work will certainly be carried out in the field. That means plumbing franchises are a good example of van based franchises. A van may or may not be included as part of the franchise investment, and you may need your own van to run the business. However many van based franchises will have agreements in place with vehicle leasing companies, and banks usually favour franchises thanks to their successful nature over business start-ups.

With a Plumbing Franchise, you'll benefit from clients in both commercial and domestic setting (depending on the franchise model), providing a range of services. Every day will be different and you'll be out and about in the field - fantastic if you're looking for a franchise you can run outdoors.

Disadvantages of Plumbing Franchises

One of the main concerns of people entering the home improvement sector is the competition. Many feel that there may already be sufficient supply to meet the demand, deeming setting up their own business ineffective. But because franchising is all about scaling a business, and establishing a powerful brand, as a franchise network grows its message resonates louder and can be heard across the country. As more and more franchisees join a franchise network, the effect of franchising can be heard by more and more people. By joining a plumbing franchise, your monthly franchise fees usually contribute to a group marketing fund which the franchisor can use to promote the franchise network as a whole. This might include TV adverts, leaflet distribution and so much more - marketing that solo tradesman struggle to afford. It's easy to see just how important franchising is for businesses, because it has a positive effect on everyone in the network.
