  • Domestic Solar P V panels

    9.75Verified Review

    The job involved removal of a redundant solar hot water panel and fitting of new Photo voltaic units to the roof. The planning was detailed and all otions clearly costed. Work started on the day arranged and the plumbing team removed the old system and disconnected it all safely before the new system was installed and connected. Both teams were the most polite and considerate workers I have come across for a long time and great care was taken to minimise disruption to the household. The cleanliness of the working was very reassuring, as was the careful explanation of each stage of the work.

  • Service Oil Boiler

    10Verified Review

    I called the company in question on the Tuesday (02/08/22) as I wanted to confirm an early appointment which I was able to do. The engineer turned up at the appointed time and date, straight from the start the engineer was very polite he asked me a few questions about the boiler and started the job. I had a few question to ask and the engineer which in turn he was very knowledgeable in his response, when the service was completed the work area was left very clean and tidy.

  • Complete bathroom refit

    10Verified Review

    The complete refit was carried out in a very professional manner from start to finish and at, what we considered to be, a very reasonable cost. In the planning stage Duncan listened carefully to our requirements and responded with sound advice and suggestions. In undertaking the work Lee and his colleagues were very understanding, co-operative, efficient and left the place clean at the end of each day. They all went the extra mile to provide us now with a superb bathroom, very well fitted, comfortable and easy to clean. The body drier is a life changer!!
