They gave a prompt, fair quotation for the work to be done. Turned up on time and took only as long as they said they would to complete the job very well. They were courteous, tidy and cleaned up well too.

Identified need for new ball valve and replaced it and - see below ...
Having completed the work needed Nigel then spotted we still had a leak somewhere in the system. He searched meticulously, constantly checking all possibilities inside the property and finally located and repaired the elusive leak. Nigel will be the first person I would call if I need any of his skills.

Leaking toilet cistern
Trader said he would come on the 6th - didn't. Phoned him again on the 7th he came and effected a repair. Still leaking. Came and tried to repair it again later that day. Phoned him on the 8th to say it was still leaking. He said he would order a new ball. Heard nothing back. Phoned him again on the 13th. He said he would come on the 14th. He didn't. We haven't heard from him since. Had to get another plumber out as we were losing a lot of water. He fixed it in two minutes - a nut needed to be tightened. We have been quite satisfied with the trader in the past but this was unacceptable.

New bath and old shower taken out. New kitchen sink and assocated plumbing
Nigel is a nice guy and was very prompt however ..... Every pipe that he installed had to be re-done at least once. The shower was not screwed into the wall correctly which I noticed he did not tell me. No wall plugs were used and screws just placed loosely inside hoping I would not realise. The bath leaked to which I was told its sorted. It leaked again and then he came back and fixed it. No apology. The sink leaked on two occasions after being told it was put right. I have just found about three weeks after the work was complete a fresh leak from the plug hole. I would not recommend.

Ordered and fitted replacement oven door latch.
Delighted to have cooker latch repaired and pleased that Nigel was willing to take on what some might consider a minor task, not worth their time. Thank you very much. Will know who to call in future.

Leak caused by the pressure in boiler being too high.
I called just before 6 pm hoping that I'd be able to get an emergency call out, he was with me within 10-15 minutes. He talked me through the problem so I knew what to do/not to do next time and fixed my boiler and leak quickly. Very friendly and professional service. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
