Above and beyond
We recently renovated our first house and we had several trades in, no one stood out like Gareth of GB Plumbing. Firstly, when he came round to quote, he took his time and explained every scenario to us as a family. Even if something was a higher price to other plumbers he would explain why he felt he would recommend it, but still give us the choice. Went with GB due to the care and thought he showed, as if it was his own project. In between quotation and start date, he even popped in when I needed help with radiator sizes and positions. When he started the job, he never disappointed; was there when he said, made sure it was completed on time and even came across a couple of unexpected speed bumps... didn’t deter them, just spent more time on it to make sure it was right. During the few days Gareth and his apprentice were here we popped in a few times with our kids and they were great to them. We ended up with a great job done, even better than what we expected, and also better than what they quoted. Other trades since, including our bathroom fitter complemented their work. I have since recommended to my friends and will continue to recommend. Not the cheapest quote we received, but best decision we did putting our new house in their capable hands.

Excellent boiler installation
Gareth helped to explain what boiler we'd need, quoted a very fair price, installed it and improved the pipework. He was professional and a nice bloke, he also did my brother in law's boiler, we recommend him highly.

Great work, reliable.
We cannot recommend Gareth and GB Heating more highly. We used GB Heating for a new boiler installation of a Worcester Bosch, as well as to fix some issues with our heating system. GB were quick, honest and open about the costing, available dates, and attended site early on the specified day and worked hard throughout the day to get our house warm again! GB were the only plumbers that correctly identified the cause of our issues and worked hard to get it fixed for us as quickly as possible on the same day. When they had finished we had heating and hot water for the first time in weeks! Cannot recommend them more highly, the service was friendly, professional and crucially effective!

Replacement of Worcester Bosch boiler
I can not praise Gareth (GB Plumbing & Heating) enough, I had been having problems with my boiler for a while and the worry and stress of making the right decision was totally removed by Gareth's knowledge, ability and patience in explaining. The installation was faultless, you wouldn't know they had even been in the house apart from the wonderful warmth and hot water! The cost and hassle involved in replacing a boiler is a challenge, Gareth made it easy and can not recommend him and his team enough. Thank you.

Fixed a leaking central heating
Gareth came on time to the appointment, he professionally and quickly traced the problem, fixed it and thoroughly cleaned up. Speaking with him I was impressed by his professionalism high standards and most of all knowledge. I have since asked him to quote for a replacements of my boiler and radiators. On the day he worked and fixed the problem and spoke sense. He also cleaned up every vestige of rubble and dirt. Subsequently if I phoned for any further advice on other plumbing matters, he always answered and was helpful. Thoroughly recommend.

I highly recommend Gareth and GB plumbing and heating. The first meeting with Gareth to assess the work to install a new Worcester Bosch combi boiler in the kitchen and repair a leak from a central heating pipe under the bathroom floor (caused by another workman) was very thorough and all my questioned were answered. The team arrived on time, on the agreed day and were very professional, hard working and clean. They were also kind and polite. The work was completed easily within a day. Invoices arrived as agreed and there were no extra costs. The new boiler is great and the leak was fixed. I am very pleased with the company and the workman. Linda

Professional and respectful.
I highly recommend GB Plumbing and Heating. I required a new boiler to be fitted after my old one completely gave up. I received several quotes from various companies and I am someone who is extremely fussy about who I have working in my home. Gareth stood out as a tradesman as he was happy to take the time to answer every question I had. He was extremely polite when discussing things with me and explaining what was required. Importantly he was punctual and very respectful of my property, cleaning up thoroughly after the work was completed. The boiler was fitted in a day as discussed. I have a young baby and I am extremely grateful to GB Plumbing for taking this into consideration and fitting me in. Thank you for all your hard work.

Great customer service, competitive quotation, speedy installation, no mess.
I used Which?'s Trusted Traders website to shortlist local firms. GB Plumbing & Heating responded quickly to my enquiry and their quotation for a new Worcester Bosch boiler was competitive. The work was undertaken in one day and the work area was left clean and tidy. I was kept informed at all stages.
Reliable, professional and excellent work
I had a Worcester Bosch Combi installed by gb plumbing. The work entailed Before, During n After. Before- Gareth came to look at my current system and after a thorough review recommended the Combi system. During - he and his team installed the new system with professionalism, speed and integrity. It was done in less than the planned 2 days. Everything was done methodically from the laying of protection to my flooring, the installation process to completion with all the pipes neatly aligned to the new boiler and all old pipes, boiler and waste were removed seamlessly without even us noticing. Gareth is someone who clearly knows what he is doing. He promised and delivered- Boom boom boom. After- Gareth came over couple of days later without hesitation after I informed him I could not remember how to use the thermostat properly. Gareth is worth his weight in gold. I am very happy with our new boiler in its simplicity and the manner Gareth had installed it. He took the stress out of the process. It’s very refreshing to come across smart and intelligent service providers who know what they are doing in an area that is so specialized and technical. He truly understands what customer service and support is. I strongly recommend Gareth to anyone who is considering a new boiler system. I was very lucky that I found him. Am very pleased indeed. Kudos to someone so young and so technically capable n professional. He delivered n did a fantastic job indeed!! He is truly trustworthy.
Excellent work with professionalism and integrity
We had a Worcester Combi Boiler installed. Gareth recommended the capacity of the boiler after evaluating our needs. I had to give this review because he did an excellent job in the time frame as agreed. He worked tirelessly throughout and delivered with integrity, knowledge and professionalism. We have had poor past experiences with other service providers and it is sooooo amazing and a windfall for us to find people like Gareth who really know what he is doing and did it properly and with real technical knowledge. All the pipes were neatly aligned and everything was cleaned up after the work done. Kudos to Gareth who covered all areas and his ability to think ahead of the curve. We thank god for having found this engineer. He got the job done boom boom boom- 2 days ( or really 1 1/2 days it was completed.) All waste, old tanks n pipes were cleared and discarded by him. Start to finish was fantastic . This is what I call 5 star quality. Everything now is so simplified and excessive pipes we had under the old conventional system was got rid off. Finally I can only say Gareth is truly worth his weight in gold. We will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is looking for a heating engineer. He works with another colleague and both delivered. Thank you Gareth n team. Note: just his boxes of tools that they utilised on the job was awesome!! They are a no nonsense quality driven service providers who are focused on delivering their best in their area of expertise.
Gareth and his team did an impressive work of untangling pipes from the previous boiler installed 15 years back. They cleaned up the previous mess, neatly installed a new shiny boiler, without fuss, efficiently and in time. The price looks competitive, too.
Professional, reliable and extremely competent
Gareth and his team installed a new boiler replacing an old one that happily lived in our kitchen ( so old that no one would service it). At our first meeting it became quickly apparent that Gareth was knowledgeable, experienced, reliable , was open to suggestions , approachable and could work collaboratively. It was clear that the boiler had to be moved to the cellar and potentially, as I was told by a previous engineer, there could be quite a lot of disruptive work both in the cellar and more importantly in the kitchen. I was really impressed by how calmly and thoughtfully Gareth came up with a solution that created no disruption what so ever. After the work was finished I thought he is like Gold Dust. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.
Highly recommended. Great work and professional service. New boiler system
Gareth and his team were excellent from start to finish. We wanted to remove an old badly fitted central heating system to a new combination boiler system. Gareth started with a site visit and discussed the options we had available. He was very knowledgeable and was able to problem solve the job to fit our requirements. Speaking with Gareth it was clear he comes from a place of experience and professionalism. Once the job started, I was impressed by the tidiness of the whole team. The job was completed within the time frame and house was left spotless. I highly recommend GB Plumbing and will be using in the future when I am ready to change the radiators. Thanks again.
Came across Gareth when we were in a panic with our old boiler.......he spotted the problem immediately, and it was something that should have been checked yearly with our British gas service, but wasn't. When the time came to finally get a new boiler, had no hesitation in choosing GB plumbing and heating. Gareth and his team worked really hard, with minimum fuss or mess, and our new boiler is a delight! Gareth is friendly and personal, and I would recommend him unreservedly.
Superb job from a professional and friendly team
In summary: Gareth and his team did a fantastic job to a high standard at a good price! The job was to replace an old gravity-fed central heating system with a new Worcester Bosch combi-boiler and Stelrad radiators throughout the whole house. They were hard-working and focussed on the job, completing it to a high standard in just 2 days while keeping the house as clean as possible. Some highlights: - Gareth gave me a lot of advice choosing the right boiler for my budget and requirements - They managed to conceal pipes that were originally going to be exposed, keeping the look of the room clean - I wanted one of the radiators raised a few inches, and they happily re-mounted and re-plumbed it without any hassle - They covered carpeted areas with non-slip plastic film for protection - Before leaving, they vacuum-cleaned thoroughly to remove any remaining debris Above all, from start to finish Gareth was friendly, honest, and professional.
Outstanding service and a great experience
My elderly mother had a new boiler fitted last week and it couldn't have gone better. The service and works were outstanding. Gareth and his team were reassuring and sympathetic to my mum's needs and concerns. They were the best workmen she has ever had! They were diligent in getting the work done quickly and efficiently, all done with a smile. The whole team worked together well. If there were any problems we were not aware of them. I would definitely recommend Gareth and his team to anyone and would use them again without hesitation. I cannot rate them highly enough - a 6 star rating!
Professional, good work and reliable
We decided that we wanted to replace our old Glowworm boiler with a Worcester Bosch. We picked three local recommended fitters. GB Plumbing was the most efficient and clear at the quote stage. Gareth gave good advice on some issues we had. He was able to fit in our installation quite quickly even though it was December. He and Chris did the boiler installation, system drainage and radiator valve replacements and cleared up well. We had a problem shortly afterwards but they quickly came back to deal with it. This was done in December 2016. We had it serviced by Gareth last year. The boiler has worked very well now for 18 months. Our gas bills have gone right down. Would recommend using GB Pumbing.
Gareth replaced a combi boiler for me some months ago and I was very pleased with the service I received. Gareth took the time to answer my queries to enable me to make an informed choice as to which boiler to go for. The installation process was efficient and really straightforward and everything was left tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending Gareth and his team to anyone.
Totally professional work and would always use Gareth going forwards
I have had Gareth install two domestic boilers for me over the past few months. In each case the quality of service received has been exemplary. Gareth has not only done a high quality installation, he has been prompt, courteous and reliable. I would very strongly recommend him.
Superb work and customer service
Gareth and his team fitted my boiler nearly three years ago (and were superb at the time). Since then there has been excellent follow-up service, particularly getting in touch for annual maintenance and supplying replacement parts. I have recommended this company to friends with confidence!
New Combi Boiler Fitted
New boiler fitted. Very pleased and impressed with the service from start to finish. Gareth walked me through exactly what work would be done and what boiler would be best for my house and sent me a very competitive quote that same day! Gareth and Chris did an amazing job working flat out for five and a half hours without a break, and you wouldn't even know they were here.. no mess at all! Everyone was very friendly and courteous throughout. I paid exactly what he quoted after all the work was completed. Thanks alot for quick turnaround. Highly recommend.
Our conventional boiler died, and we decided to take the plunge and change to an unvented system. Having seen the good reviews, I called Gareth. He completely understood the urgency of the job (three teenage daughters and no hot water!). He provided us with a very detailed quote, started work immediately, and did an amazing job. He had to replace and move both boiler and cylinder to our basement, change the pipes, flush and rebalance all the radiators, and did all this with no mess or disruption. Gareth is a true professional, and his work is of a very high standard. He is happy to tackle a complicated job, and work out solutions to any problems that may arise.
I have read all the reviews about GB Plumbing before I contacted Gareth
It is until he did the job of replacing my old boiler that I found all the positive reviews here are true. They are the honest ongoing testimonials of Gareth's works. He is reliable coz he took the trouble to reply every enquiry I made via emails. A good plumber is always super busy but he is able to fit my job in at his earliest availability which I can't thank you enough. His quote is the best, both money and quality-wise. He first won my confidence by showing me all the relevant certificates and he was the only one to describe mine is a straightforward job whereas others told me the contrary. He replaced the old boiler and some of the pipes behind the kitchen cabinet, secured the flue outside the wall (second floor of a block) . . . efficiently and professionally; job done from 8:30am - 1:30pm. Gareth and Chris kept the job's noise level to the minimum. They covered all the working areas with cardboards and towels, if need be. They bought their own powerful hoover to make clean every corner that they had worked at. The job was completed, mpney paid, bu I still received his email today, informing me that the registration certificate and warranty cert. are still to come. Last but not least, both Gareth and Chris are friendly and polite. Summing up, a truly hassle-free experience. All the best, Chings
A burst pipe somewhere in a bedroom, water running down the wall. I turned the water off and went to Trusted Trader. This was the 5th one I rang. I was so relieved when Gareth said he would come that afternoon. He came as promised, found where the pipe was, he removed an architrave without damage, removed the old piece of lead pipe and capped it off as well as another hot water pipe that I asked him to do. Gareth was straight forward, efficient and a pleasure to have in the house. I would definitely use him again.
Excellent service, highly recommended
GB Plumbing and Heating installed our new boiler and did an excellent job. When Gareth initially attended he clearly explained what would be required, and the options we had for location of both the boiler and pipework. All the work was completed as described, within estimate, and agreed time frame. He even managed to fit the boiler within an existing kitchen cupboard and left the whole work area as clean as when he arrived. I wouldnt hesitate to use GB Plumbing and Heating again, and would recommend for similar work.
Very happy with a boiler replacement
Gareth replaced my ageing boiler with a new Worcester-Bosch combi boiler. He did an excellent job and I couldn't be happier about the work: * Identified all issues with the existing system (such as a lack of drainage for the condensation pipe), explained how they need to be addressed and included it in his quote - no surprises on the day. * Worked efficiently and thoroughly to install the new boiler, fitting it accurately in the tight space available. * Worked to a high standard: The new piping and wires were all lined up properly so the overall result looks very tidy. The soakaway was installed with careful attention so it is barely noticeable. * Moved all of the wiring for the controller from the hot water tank next to the boiler, so I would have an easy time upgrading the controller. * Used floor protection and cleaned up after his work, I didn't have to do as much as mop after him and his colleague. Overall I was very happy with Gareth's work - in terms of speed, efficiency and quality. My heating system is in a much better shape thanks to him and the whole process was as trouble-free as possible.
Couldn't be happier
Gareth and Chris were great. They were very professional and explained what they were doing and listened to what I wanted done. Excellent job and very happy to recommend to friends and neighbours - in fact I already have.
Please use with confidence
Gareth and Jason were excellent from start to finish. The quote for a full boiler installation took 1.5 hours and was extremely detailed. We were given dates and a time frame which were both stuck to and there were no hidden costs that popped up throughout the job. They were really pleasant to have around and made what could have been a stressful few days really easy. I will definitely be using them again - please use with confidence.
Highly professional. When he visited us he pointed out problems and gave solutions that had been missed by others. His quote was lower than others. He arrived on time and completed the work within 48 hours. Work was clean and tidy with minimum disruption. Five stars all round. Highly recommend.
Excellent plumber - only take note of the good reviews, the other one makes no sense
This is the second boiler install by Gareth for me and my family. Always very easy to get along with and build trust. Has excellent knowledge and skill with this trade and gave us full confidence again in his ability to do a great job. Offered loads of good solid advice, and executed the work in good time with no problems. I have him back for any future service jobs and will recommend him to others
I trust a trader!
Very capable tradesmen from start to finish, they changed my immersion heating to a combi , I am a tradesmen myself and know that knowledge and then delivering it to a fast friendly clean high standard is what sets the real tradesmen apart from the rest, and these guys are the real deal, hands down hightly recommended. thanks fellas
Reliable, tidy and friendly
Very efficient, tidy and competent. We had a reasonably straightforward boiler replacement carried out, but other issues the managed to identify and solve other issues with the electrics that have been sorted out. Very pleased with their service and would recommend them highly.
Boiler Installation (Removal of Back Boiler for Combi)
Gareth provided exceptional work and service when installing our boiler. His prices were competitive. His explanation of the work before, during and afterwards was comprehensive. He covered the floors and always cleaned up when he finished for the day. He always arrived at the time he organised beforehand. I would use his services again and would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone needing a boiler installation.
Gareth was quick to respond, competitively priced and had the installation done efficiently and effectively. He and Chris made sure they covered the floors and cleaned up properly then they had finished. I'm very pleased with the work they did.
Takes no responsibility for shoddy workmanship
I can't believe you are featuring Gareth Butcher as a trusted trader. We used his services to install a new Worcester-Bosch combi-boiler and replacement shower in May 2014. I since had to get another plumber, and an electrician, to fix his installation. Various issues with the quality of his work: 1. He installed the condensate pipe to the waste going uphill! After about 2 months the boiler failed with an error code, as the condensate siphon was full. Had to call out a Worcester Bosch engineer to fix this (under warranty). He couldn't believe the pipework had been installed going "uphill", and I had to get another plumber to fix this. 2. Where he removed the control unit for the old boiler, he put on an ill-fitting face plate. When I went to replace it with something better, there were live bare cables behind it (my mains tester screwdriver was glowing), which had not been terminated. I emailed him about this, but no response. I had to get an electrician to tidy this up safely. 3. Where he replaced the shower, he didn't even fill the old screw holes from the old shower. 4. All rubbish was left outside our house. He was more than happy to take the old copper hot water tank, though. 5. We noticed a name and number written on the wall of our airing cupboard. He obviously took a call from another customer, and didn't have any paper to hand, so wrote on our wall.
Brilliant and efficient
From the time Gareth quoted on replacing my boiler, to the fantastic and swift work he and Chris did in replacing it, I knew I had chosen the right engineers. They were considerate, very knowledgeable, kind, clean and did a fantastic job. I know who to contact for any further plumbing work. Thanks so much Gareth and Chris.
Top Quality Heating Engineers

We were impressed by Gareth when he came to survey what we needed and to offer us advice about a new system. It became clear then that he was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. His suggestions were really helpful and when it arrived, the quotation was easy to understand and very clear. The price was competitive. The work was completed on time and efficiently. The overall result was that we now have an excellent system. No mess was left and the team were friendly and helpful. The new pipes are a work of art! Gareth is a perfectionist!
Worcester Bosch boiler and cylinder installation
Gareth is experienced, hard working and reliable. I have a Worcester Bosch boiler and cylinder installed. Gareth worked none stop and completed the installation on time. I would recommend Gareth to the neighbours. Ms Ji from N20
I wanted to find a trustworthy plumber to changed my system boiler to a combination one, and I did have several quotes. However, they all gave me different plans about which boiler I have to choose or where to put the boiler. Gareth's was very straight forward and clear, and most importantly thought things in my position. Before I made decision, I worried our water pressure was not enough with a combi (it was very low when measured via kitchen mixer tap). Only Gareth came to our home again, and managed to measure it from the washing machine side. He is super professional and technological, very good at his job, personally, he is also quite polite, and very patient to his customer. His team completed everything on schedule and well tidied up everywhere. Highly recommend to everyone, actually I have already give his number to any friend who need plumber.
Required a replacement boiler and water softener. Very knowledgeable, received a prompt and competitive quote and a quick appointment (which was kept). Super professional and highly recommended.
We've been an extremely satisfied customer of GB Plumbing and Heating Ltd for over five years. Highly recommended.
P&M Ryan, Bricket Wood
Totally reliable, professional and trustworthy
GB installed our new boiler 5 years ago, we went for the one they recommended and have never had one single problem in all that time. They service it once a year and that's it. We've probably saved the cost of the boiler in insurance and energy savings over that time - brilliant, couldn't recommend them more.
