Responsive, reliable quality work. I use Coulson for a variety of small electrical, plumbing and building work on a regular basis in my own home and in a number of rental properties. They provide estimates they stick to. They arrive when arranged and are polite to deal with. I would thoroughly recommend them.

central Heating restored
Customer Service
Unexpectedly our central heating boiler needed renewal. The work was done promptly and satisfactorily. We had a clear explanation of the work to be done and the choices we could make. The system was checked thoroughly on completion and is running well to date.

competent and cheerful work
Customer Service
An old gas boiler was replaced. The work was done cheerfully and competently and took the time allowed, two days. One small unpredictable fault, a leak in an old pipe which had not been replaced during the work, developed later. But Coulson's came and fixed it promptly without any shilly shallying.

Used this firm over 40 years in 3 different houses
Customer Service
They modernised my en-suite bathroom in 2014 removing a Jacuzzi, laying a sloping floor to provide a wet room for a walk-in shower, building an airing cupboard plus a cupboard for the washing machine. Also installed a sensowash ( W.C. cum Bidet). In 2015 in the cloakroom they replaced the bath with a walk-in shower. They arrived at agreed times and tidied up very well at the end of each day. I was kept informed of progress and any problems.
