  • Repairs to Hot Water System

    10Verified Review

    Our gas boiler system was working for central heating purposes but was not producing hot water. The immersion heater backup had also failed. Umbrella responded quickly when we called them and soon identified several issues. The repairs were carried out quickly and efficiently and there service in general was without fault. I would definitely recommend them.

    10Verified Review

    Because of the drainage problem, the boiler service was brought forward, and both jobs were completed at short notice.

  • Decoration of communal area in block of flats.

    10Verified Review

    The lads carried out an excellent job painting and decorating the large communal areas in our apartment block. They finished ahead of schedule, and were polite and friendly throughout. They cleaned up every day before they left, and the place was left immaculate. We will definitely use Umbrella Improvements again for any future work.

  • Bathroom fitting and improvements

    10Verified Review

    Listened to what we wanted. Prepared to 'improve' what we wanted. Did not push us to change the things that were already satisfactory. Work done efficiently and on time. Very satisfied with outcome. Would use again.

  • House renovation

    10Verified Review

    I have used Steve and his gang several times over the last few years as I have purchased a lovely house that had been bodged at every turn. If it wasn't for Steve and his team I am not sure where we would be! I have found them to be incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, they have organised the complete redecoration of the house. Installed a new boiler. Installed new shower and bath. Installed a heated towel rail and replaced another leaking one. Fixed toilets etc etc. The list goes on. They are very reasonably priced and always willing to help. 100% recommend.
