Efficient and professional
Customer Service
I needed a radiator replaced and found the quote and replacement process quick and painless at what seemed to me to be a reasonable price. I'm very happy with the finished job.

Excellent work from start to finish
Customer Service
J Child replaced our old gas boiler and cylinder with a combi; replaced a shower unit; and fitted a larger radiator in the hall over 2 days in August 2022. We are very impressed with the whole experience, starting with John Child’s initial survey and advice. Allan and apprentice Mikey worked steadily and efficiently throughout the installation. All non-‘black-bin’ rubbish was removed before they completed the job. Very pleased indeed. Highly recommend.

Excellent Service

We've used John for two years now, to service our boiler and do some works on our underfloor heating system. He has been excellent, with no fuss whatsoever. He's very prompt, gets on with the job in hand very professionally leaves no mess - couldn't ask for better. Communications with the office are very easy. Thoroughly recommended.

Investigate and repair leak under bath. Supply and fit new isolation valve and mapress fitting.
Customer Service
We found drips on our sitting room ceiling on Saturday. We were able to isolate the leak and contacted half a dozen plumbers. J Child were quick to respond and able to come on Tuesday. On the phone, they explained their pricing structure which seemed fair. They arrived promptly, identified and carried out the repair necessary to the copper pipe, and re-aligned another isolation valve which had been poorly installed in this new build. The bath panel could not be replaced yet as the floor was still drying out, but Allan showed me an Amazon link to buy new bath panel clips which had broken when I had taken it off at the weekend. I was very pleased with the service and price and would not hesitate to use them again.

Good work, finished quickly
Customer Service
John fitted electric underfloor heating to my small study/bedroom. It was professionally done and he and the floorer liaised about how they might deal with possible issues with the (minimally) raised height of the floor, because of the insulation boards. There were no subsequent problems. John also very kindly returned to walk me through setting the highly complex floor thermostat once the floor had been laid. I found the WhatsApp film he took of me setting the thermostat, and he talking me through every step, very useful indeed. I really appreciated that. The work was to budget and within schedule. I would recommend John.

Superb professional service.
Customer Service
I had a hole-in-the-wall gas fire installed which initially required two separate visits and liaison with a builder completing an external chimney. John was helpful and knowledgeable from the outset and coordinated effectively with the builder. Due to unforeseen circumstances, it was necessary to change the date for fitting the fire and John was flexible and accommodating. The work was of a very high standard, John cleaned up after himself, leaving everything in very good order and as important the price was exceptionally reasonable. I would highly recommend this company to anyone and based on my positive experience have already scheduled in servicing for the fire as well as the central heating.

Excellent Service
Customer Service
As always excellent service from J Childs Mechanical Plumbing Gas Ltd. Booked in for a routine boiler service, I mucked up the dates and due to work commitments couldn't be available for the date originally agreed. They sorted someone to come out to me saving me from rearranging another date and time off work. Thank you. The gentleman who came out to do the service was very polite and the work was done efficiently and quickly.

Excellent service
Customer Service
Can't criticise these people. We had a boiler problem which meant we were without heat, and they fitted us in the next day, which we really appreciated as the weather was cold. The work was done quickly and efficiently, and an option we had to decide upon was explained clearly. Highly recommended.
