I asked C & R to visit to advise on how to improve the pressure for two showers and install two heated towel rails. Jamie visited punctually and was very professional. He offered suggestions and we discussed the pros and cons, he was open, honest and thorough. We opted for the cylinder removal and a new unvented system to go in the loft. His quote came through three days later and was clear and seemed a good price. We agreed a start date for two weeks later for a two day install. Well everything went as promised. Tommy and Paul turned up on time both days, worked quickly and cleanly, tidied up as they went and were cheerful and polite. The sort of tradesmen you are happy to have in your house. They finished by 5pm on the second day. They thoroughly tested the system and the rest of the house to make sure everything was working properly. They then invited me to inspect the work and explained what they had done and how it all works. The invoice came through a few days later with no hidden extras exactly as quoted. We now have two very good showers and smart heated towel rails. I would thoroughly recommend C &R to everyone. It’s how plumbing and heating should be !

Most recently the trader conducted our annual boiler service which, as ever, was done efficiently and professionally. Previously the trader has completed major works in the renovation and extension of our property - from 2-bed to 4-bed with new open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room - commencing 2017, including new boiler/cylinder installation, new bathroom/ensuites installation, new underfloor pipework for hot/cold water throughout, integrate old with new radiators/central heating system. Communication was excellent throughout, worked well as part of the wider build team, always polite, quick to resolve any issues - will continue to work with this trader for annual services and any future additional work, and would recommend without hesitation.

We had our 21 year old boiler and radiators replaced. I checked many local installers to discuss our options and obtained different quotes. C&R are a small, long established, family team and impressed us the most with their genuine positive can-do attitude and depth of heating system knowledge. Punctual too. They worked very hard and every aspect was carried out to our complete satisfaction. First rate workmanship. No hidden charges or other costs. Excellent follow up service since to check all was well. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

Problem with the bathroom toilet, detected a leak now waiting for a replacement toilet. The service which we have received from C & R has always been excellent, they are reliable, always punctual and leave the site very clean, if it is necessary to leave the house while the work is being carried out I feel confident to leave the house knowing that C & R staff are completely Honest.

I have used C&R for approximately 10 years, both on my personal residential for boiler replacement and servicingproperty, and also on 4 rental properties where they have replaced boilers, along with annual service and safety checks, I provide them tenant contact details, they then liase and book in direct, clients have never said a bad word, totally trust them to leave them unsupervised in any property, and to do an excellent and safe job.
