New shower pump

I have used Farthings for a few years for annual boiler service, for a shower room refurbishment and the occasional leak. More recently they have replaced a faulty shower pump. They are always easy to contact, answer their phone promptly and provide quick and efficient service. Always a pleasure to deal with.

Replaced shower cabinet

Excellent service from start to finish. Initial visit to advise on options as existing unit was leaking from under the tray. Decided to replace the whole shower cabinet as the existing one was over 25 years old. The work involved both plumbers and electrician and this was coordinated by Farthings. I was kept informed throughout the installation. Great friendly people who fitted in with my other commitments. Removed all the rubbish and left the bathroom clean and tidy. A lovely surprise when I received a bouquet of flowers to thank me for my custom. Great touch. Customer service is first class.

When our boiler failed during really cold weather last February, Farthings attended promptly and we quickly had heating back on. In September it failed again so we decided on a new boiler which Farthings installed. Their service was excellent - friendly, helpful and efficient. We also needed help with a leaking toilet cistern and the prompt response from Farthings was brilliant. Can't recommend them enough, a first class company.

My boiler failed Friday lunchtime. Farthings attended and diagnosed a terminal fault. They then sourced a new boiler 25 miles away and had it running by Saturday lunchtime. Outstanding service! Although I have used Farthings for years for my annual boiler service, I have no service contract with them, or any other connection.

Farthings Plumbing & Heating installed a complete new bathroom for me (new floor, tiling, complete new suit and fixtures and fittings). They were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. From the initial consultation, planning, product offer and highly skilled plumber, tiler & all-rounder (a real craftsman) they cannot be faulted. They started when they said they would, were tidy throughout and went above and beyond. Their level of workmanship was exemplary. I have no hestitation in recommending their services.

Fantastic service all round from Darryl's quote to completion. James, our fitter was first class, he arrived at eight every day and always told us what was happening on the day. He was professional and friendly, he's a credit to the company. We were due to have an extractor fan fitted but when the electrician arrived he found this couldn't be completed as per the original quote. An alternative method was found and completed at no addition cost. We're more than happy with the work completed and would use Farthings again.

Bathroom refit

Farthings have carried out a number of jobs for us, most recently a complete refit of our family bathroom and en-suite. They are a professional outfit. You get a detailed quotation within a couple of days of their visit and they now have a great showroom at their premises in Glenfield which is a great help with choosing products and tiles etc. Their prices are reasonable and comparable. We were allocated Kelvin for our job, who arrived before 8 am every day. His workmanship is of the highest standard with great attention to detail. He is also very engaging, nothing is too much trouble including hoovering carpets at the end of each day. Our 2 bathrooms are fantastic, we could not be more delighted and we do not say that very often! We would definitely use Farthings again and are happy to recommend them.

We had used Farthings on a number of occasions but the last time was to refit our downstairs cloakroom. Farthings came and measured up and produced a plan which was perfect for the room. Once we had agreed to the plan the work was scheduled and completed without a hitch to a very good standard. Their showroom was a great source of inspiration as it contained lots of examples which made the choice of materials so much easier than trying to choose them online or from a catalogue. What was most pleasing is that the whole job was completed by the same person with no hanging around for different trades to complete specific aspects of the fit. The fitter was really good and did a lovely job from start to finish and kept us updated all through the fitting out. Would highly recommend Farthings and indeed we have further work which needs attention and we shan't be looking anywhere else.

Thank you very much for your review. It is lovely to hear such a positive response from the services we provide. Our CAD designs are done individually and often take a lengthy time therefore we are very happy to hear they are appreciated and act as a useful tool for our customers!
