Endorsement Reference A great reliable company
Customer Service
I have my 5 boilers serviced every year. Gas safe certificates completed every year for my rental properties and other work as well. I have alway found them friendly, reliable and arrive at the time and day they say they will come. They are also very clean workers and take away all the rubbish from any parts they may fit

Had a leak on Sunday from boiler. Someone came same day and stemmed the leak. Diagnosis was a new immersion and a warning that the problem could also be a crack in the boiler. Came next day with new immersion but he showed me that there was a crack in the boiler where the immersion is attached. Left me with something to empty the boiler as water was still filling it from faulty stop valve. Fitted a new boiler next day and replaced piping and put a new stop cock in at a better place than the original. Cleared up and left the area tidy. Also they look after my central heating on an annual service. Have corrected faulty work from the original installer.
