Replace two radiators and valves
The service was excellent. He was on time and very efficient. Sam was extremely polite, clear and very informative about the work he was carrying out and why I had been having problems. I would highly recommend him and will certainly be using him for any future plumbing or heating works.
Sam's done lots of work for me over the past few years, including basic servicing, breakdown callouts, thermostat installation and even a complete boiler replacement. He's always on time, his work is top quality and he's a decent bloke too. 100% recommended.
Sam got back to my message super quick and fixed my boiler the same day! Very professional and clearly knows his stuff. Would highly recommend.
Installing Tado Smart Thermostat
Sam methodically worked through the process of getting a Tado smart thermostat to work with my heating system, which another engineer could not get to function. I was really impressed with Sam's knowledge, commitment to finding a solution to the problem and his quality of work. Would definitely recommend.
Plumbing Advice and Boiler Servicing
I would highly recommend Sam. It was necessary for me to sort advice from Sam regarding the plumbing/mains feed within my flat; due to plumbing issues observed, of which are affecting me, from a neighbouring flat. Sam is a great problem solver; he listened, thought through the issues carefully, offering me solutions and options with estimated costs. Sam's experience is apparent and his knowledge within his field is reassuring. Trustworthy and honest, thanks Sam.
