    Ian from CHAPS was on time, friendly and gave good advice. Serviced the boiler and fixed one simpler leak whilst quoting for fixing one other. Thanks!

    Nothing to say but 'EXCELLENT' about this business. They communicated efficiently before the appointment. They turned up on time. They diagnosed the problem and effected remedial work with no fuss or fumbling. Thjis is what real tradespeople should be like. Why would you go to any other plumber ? I wouldn't !!

    Ian has returned to us to conduct our annual boiler service and we'll be booking him again next year. He responds timeously to emails, give his price up-front, turns up on time and gets the job done with no nonsense or fuss. Professional and friendly - I would recommend this company without reservation.

  • Friendly, professional service

    10Verified Review

    I required a service on my Air Source Heat Pump. I left details of this on checkatrade and Ian from CHAPS contacted me. He asked for as many details as I could give with regards to the job and system. I was very impressed with this as it showed his professionalism and genuine interest in the job. He was able to give me a quote based on this and we agreed a date for him to carry out the work. When carrying out the service, Ian and his associate conducted themselves in a professional and friendly manner. They were very conscientious and thorough. I am very happy with the work they did.

  • Reliable, friendly and efficient!

    10Verified Review

    Ian and his team have been taking care of my heating system - repairs and installation of new boiler - (and other minor plumbing problems) for many years. They are always very serious and reliable and do a great job. I really appreciate that they can also send me quotes in advance to make sure it's fine with my budget. I greatly recommend them!

    As always, efficient and friendly service at a good price. The boiler was installed by CHAPS and maintained by them since. Recommended.

We also carry a building services design service in the company for those who need any type of Plumbing, Water, Air conditioning and drainage services designed in addition to Heating and Gas services.

We will remain open for business to help and assist anyone that needs it until told otherwise or we need to for virus related reasons. 

 Stay safe and healthy everyone.
