What is PVC?

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is typically used in construction as insulation on electrical wires or in flooring for homes, while uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) is used to make windows and doors.

PVC isn’t suitable for door and window construction because of its chemical make-up.

PVC flooring repair cost

PVC is more commonly known as vinyl flooring. PVC flooring, whilst it’s good, may need repairing over time due to wear and tear.

For a repair of PVC flooring over an area of 25 square feet, you’re looking to pay around £75 – £150.  As a per-square-metre cost, you’re looking at roughly £20 per m2, while labour prices are in the region of about £100 – £200 per day.

A popular type of vinyl flooring is Karndean. It is durable and looks authentic and is cheaper than alternatives such as hardwood flooring, which makes it a popular choice for homeowners. Take a look at our cost guide to find out more.

Because vinyl flooring is one of the most reasonably-priced flooring choices, it’s always worth considering whether the flooring should be repaired or replaced. We advise speaking to your local vinyl flooring expert to compare their prices for repair versus replacing the flooring.

Once you’ve found a flooring installer near you, take a look at their profile to check their previous photos and reviews of their work.

pvc wall panelling

PVC wall panelling cost

PVC wall panelling/cladding is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to tiling in bathrooms.

This is because panels come in virtually any colour or design, can be cut to size, are easy to clean and easier to install. It’s a lot easier to replace PVC wall panels than replacing tiles because you don’t have the time-consuming job of grouting, so it’s a great option if you’re someone who likes to update your home a lot.

The cost of PVC bathroom wall panelling is usually between £50 – £150 per m2.

PVC conduit or trunking cost

Cables are normally stored and contained in PVC trunking or conduit during an installation. Occasionally, PVC can splinter and break when exposed to physical stress.

PVC conduit or trunking repair will set you back between £10 – £20 per metre. An electrician will normally do this work and any cabling within the conduit or trunking.

pvc pipe replacement cost

PVC pipe replacement cost

If left unrepaired, pipes can cost a lot more to fix in the long run, with an increased chance of harm to your property.

If your drain issue is too costly to repair, then you should budget for approximately £120 – £600 per metre.
