  • Undetected leak in wall

    10Verified Review

    Simon from Baker Smith came out with the plan of fixing the leak in my bathroom wall. Sadly it seems the leak is coming from the flat above, so no work took place. Simon went to visit the neighbour to detect the leak and make them aware of it. He was very courteous and talked me through all scenarios.

  • Leaking pipe (and boiler servicing)

    10Verified Review

    Initially we called Baker Smith because the boiler needed servicing. Luke attended and sorted the problem quickly and efficiently. He clearly explained the problem and made sure to check the rads were working well. We were very pleased with the work, so subsequently called BS to get a leaking pipe fixed and a shower enclosure fitted. Tom was equally as helpful and we were delighted with the result in both cases. Communication by head office was excellent and we would definitely use Baker Smith again in the future. Highly recommended.

  • Broken Click-Clack Bathroom Sink Plug Replacement

    10Verified Review

    John's initial contact was the speediest and promptest service I have ever experienced, including Liam who was sent out and works through jobs that should be simple but due to at times the way things have been previously installed can intail all round trickyness. This company is honest with their time and do not take advantage when there could be a opportunity to long out a job! There may be more competitive prices out there but you are getting a very professional ran company including clear and transparent billing/invoicing. You will be service faster than a 999 call and aided with immediate effect!

  • Concealed toilet cistern repair


    Baker Smith were quick to respond to my enquiry and were professional and courteous. I did have to chase them up a few times to find out when they would come to actually do the repair once they had been out to see what needed to be done but they were always apologetic and came back quickly to answer my questions. They ended up carrying out the cistern replacement in a timely manner and it was completed to a high standard. I would recommend Baker Ross and use them again for future repairs. Thank you.
