I needed 3 taps replacing in our shop and Andrew was really quick getting back to me with a very good price. He came to do the job for me and one of the taps I'd bought was the wrong size so Andrew got me another one straight away and fitted it. The job was really professionally done to a very high standard. Highly recommend Andrew

Andrew was my second attempt to get my boiler repaired. He took the time to establish what the issue was instead of just trying to get me to buy new which I really appreciated. He kept me informed throughout giving me realist time frames. He also took the time to explain what we needed to do and why. Andrew was very polite in all my interactions with him and the quality of his work is extremely high. I highly recommend Andrew, he is not only skilled but also a decent man and someone you can trust to look after your plumbing and boiler issues.

A shut off tap was no longer working properly and additionally had a leak at its compression joint. It was situated within a cupboard that provided difficult access. Andrew replaced the shut off tap but it later developed another leak at the compression joint. The old pipework was in poor condition and Andrew returned to replace some of that. I now have a working, leak free shut off tap.

Andrew and his team did our new bathroom and changed all the radiators in the house we are having refurbished. They were all very skilled and easy to deal with. They cleaned up and left the place tidied. We are very pleased with our new bathroom and radiators. They also did the plumbing work involved in our new kitchen. They came whenever it was time for them to do their share of the work in the new kitchen. What I liked best in Andrew was that he was very helpful and accommodating. As the refurb progressed, some problems in the house were discovered and Andrew was quick to say yes whenever I asked him to do extra job or fix something that was within his expertise. Of course, we need to pay more than the quote because of the additional work we asked him but the final price was reasonable. Snags that were unavoidable were quickly sorted out. I highly recommend.

I contacted Andrew to fix a leaking kitchen tap and to also do a boiler service. He was both helpful and responsive to find the parts needed for the kitchen tap and provided the quote for the job upfront. Andrew and his team arrived on time and promptly got to work and got the kitchen tap fixed and the boiler service done, and the area was clean after the work was finished. He also invoiced the same amount as the quote provided upfront. Overall I was happy with Andrew and his team’s work and would recommend them.

This is the second time we have used Andrew. Andrew researched electric boilers for us, which helped us decide to connect to the gas network. Andrew then installed everything after the meter had been fitted. Andrew and his colleagues ran the gas pipes through our home, fitted a gas boiler and all the waste pipes needed and connected our central heating. He gave us a clear quote before work started. During the work we added a couple of things so it was slightly more than the original quote but all of the costs were itemised and agreed. The work took slightly longer than Andrew originally anticipated but this did not add to the cost and we were warm in time for Christmas. We like the care that Andrew takes in his work and the way that he respects that he’s working in someone’s home. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Andrew to family or friends.

We found Andrew through Which Trusted Traders. We had some smaller jobs that needed doing (taps replacing) and also our hot water had low pressure. Andrew sorted out our hot water and has also advised us on replacing out electric heating and plumbing systems. We were really impressed; he was honest about not knowing much about electric combi boilers and went away to do some research and speak to his suppliers before sending us a quote and talking us through what we'd need. We will definitely be using him again and would recommend him to all who need a plumber.

We can't recommend Andrew enough... after discovering our heating was broken late into the evening we contacted Andrew and he was with us for 9am. He quickly identified the problem and fixed it - a leak under the floorboards. Andrew left the room as he found it and you would not have known he had to take up part of the carpet and floorboards to access it. Andrew also made a return trip later in the day to ensure the system was working properly. Excellent service and he worked hard to solve the problem. We can't recommend Andrew enough and we will use again.

Following being left without cold water by another plumber we called A R Plumbing & Heating. They were understanding and came to us very quickly. It was apparent from the minute he arrived that he was very efficient and quickly resolved the wrong doing of the previous plumber. We had three issues regarding an installation of a hot drinks tap, replace timer on the boiler and he also resolved the extremely hot water problem. Despite the initial problem of our new tap being older stock he quickly phoned the company to get a resolve. Other parts were ordered and a soon as he was able he returned to finish the job. The plumber also was very careful in the property and cleaned up after himself leaving everything clean and tidy. We would not hesitate to call A R Plumbing back to help in the future and would recommend him to anyone.

A friend recommended Andrew to me, he showed me some pictures of we he had done for him and was very impressed with what he has done. Andrew came across as very friendly and was even available to come out on a Bank Holiday (as it was urgent) to sort my radiators out, replacing all six of them. After installing he tested everything and sorted an old blockage in the system out as well. Andrew is very friendly, works neat and tidy and got on with it.
