Replacement of old Boiler
Customer Service
Coulsons came out to advise us on a replacement boiler. My impressions formed from this initial visit were good. He listened to what I had to say. I wanted the new boiler in the same site as the old one but the piping altered for ease of access. With the removal of the existing boiler, I wanted some old apertures in the wall sealed up. He was extremely knowledgeable and recommended a particular boiler and filter and quoted a total cost for all of the work. There was a change of personnel and David came out to reassess the agreed plan. I thought I would have to go through all the details again. However, he had all the details with him. The initial start date was some months away. However, David was as good as his word. He promised an earlier start if a date became available which it did. Dale was our gas engineer. He gave us a staged timetable for the work. Everything went to plan. The work was completed on time and on budget. It was a professional and also an extremely neat job. Remeha came our to access the work and granted an extended warranty. I am very pleased with the work. From our experience here with this company and particularly with David and Dale I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective customer.

Refurbishment of water tank and central heating plumbing
Customer Service
Arrived on time. Helpful and friendly and Covid secure. Explained what they were doing and why. Gave us options and advice. Always cleared up at end of day. Finished work on time. Solved the unforeseen problems, advised, and fitted two automatic basement pumps. Also repaired niggling household plumbing problems as extras. Outstanding job. Good prices.

Hurrah for a great plumbing service!
Customer Service
The Coulsons plumber arrived when he said he would, worked out the tricky problems with our plumbing and stayed on until everything was checked and working. We are now warm and all the radiators are working. Marvellous!

Excellent Work!
Customer Service
We have used Coulson's for many jobs over the years and always found them to be extremely helpful and professional. This latest work was a large project to lay on a gas supply to our house, install a new boiler and heating system including new radiators throughout. The plumber and his apprentices and others were superb - very hard-working, professional and good to have around the house. We enjoyed having them here. We were very pleased with the end result: we now have an excellent, most efficient heating system. They kept to their original quote and the work was completed on schedule.

Annual boiler service
Customer Service
The engineer was very pleasant and spend time checking things. He was helpful and patient with advice. There was nothing wrong with my boiler. I would recommend Coulsons. They seem very good. I will be invoiced with the correct quote.

Completely reliable
Customer Service
It was very helpful to have only the Facilities Manager to contact in order to organise nearly 20 smallish jobs. He was efficient, thoughtful and considerate throughout, simplifying the life of this 85 year-old. Work was done to budget and on time and the few problems resolved rapidly.

A job well done
Customer Service
Refitting of washroomtoilet. The company worked well with me to achieve the best result for a very small space. The few snags after the fitting were quickly remedied and there was no hesitation in addressing problems with existing equipment which came to light during the fitting. Communication throughout was excellent.
