Bathroom revamp

Jamie had previously fitted a boiler system for me, so I know the standard of his workmanship. I asked him to totally strip back and revamp my upstairs bathroom/shower room. I ordered all materials (with Jamie's recommended suppliers) and he provided all the services, plumbing, tiling, joinery, electrical work and most importantly all waste collection. The results are fantastic and the workmanship is of a high standard. I would have no hesitaion in recommending J.McCartney as a supplier.

I have no hesitation in recommending this company, from estimate to completion this job was handled efficiently and pleasantly at all times. I might add that my wife and I have high standards and at no time during this work were we concerned. We would safely recommend Jamie and his team to anyone and will use them in any future work.

New full central heating installation

I used this company for a recent new full central heating installation in a large top floor flat. From the initial quote to commissioning the system, Jamie and his team were professional, punctual, hard working and efficient. Communication was excellent, and the job was completed in 3 days. Jamie returned a few days later to check everything was in order and to sign off the system. I'm delighted with the job, and have no hesitation in recommending Jamie and his Company. I will certainly use them for any future plumbing or heating requirements.

We were very unfortunate with the purchase of our first home. Upon receiving the keys we noticed straight away that the boiler was located behind kitchen units and a splashback (which was a health and safety nightmare never mind a practical one). We must have had over 15 gas engineers out to inspect the property but Jamie is the only person who we trusted because he listened to our concerns/ needs, explained everything to us in simple terms and advised us of our options rather than telling us what he wanted to do. Jamie was true to his word and provided a quote and his availability within a matter of hours (knowing we needed the job completing ASAP to allow us to move into our new home). Jamie visited our second floor flat in busy street on three occasions. First occasion to remove the old boiler in order to allow the joiner to prepare the space. Second occasion to install the boiler and drill a new flue hole (new boiler was in a new location). Third occasion to check the boiler was working and complete a chemical flush. On all occasions Jamie was very professional, he removed any rubbish (including the old boiler) and left the place clean and tidy. Jamie respected our home, listened to and answered our concerns and helped us in our time of need and for that we are grateful. We are looking forward to moving into our new home and will 100% be using his services on a yearly basis to service the boiler and any other plumbing jobs we require. We would 100% recommend Jamie.

Jamie has now installed 2 boilers and a mixer shower at 2 rental properties. In every aspect of his work Jamie is calm, efficient and highly professional. He attended the properties, called to offer his advice and provided written detailed quotes promptly, giving dates when he could carry out the work. He arrived as arranged and carried out each job for the price quoted. When one of the old boilers broke down he even offered to provide electric heaters to the Tenant until the new boiler could be fitted - much appreciated. After the installation, all necessary documentation for guarantees and Landlords Certificates were forwarded to me. I would not hesitate to recommend Jamie to anyone.

Jamie installed a new boiler, changed a mixer shower, and sorted out a couple of stubborn radiators for us. He responded to our queries promptly, arrived on time and did a very professional job within the time frame and budget quoted. Would highly recommend.

I inherited an old boiler when I bought my home, it was never quite right but Jamie did a great job servicing it and keeping it going. This year it finally gave up and I had no hesitation in asking Jamie to see if it could be fixed and, if not, quote for a replacement. He responded quickly to my email, arrived when he said he would, checked out the old boiler and, as it wasn't economical to fix, booked in a date to install a replacement. He provided some advice on the options and a couple of quotes. I checked out the options myself and discussed with a friend down south who had a new boiler recently, we concluded Jamie had recommended the right option for me and the quotes were very reasonable and professionally presented. Jamie completed the installation quickly and efficiently, he took all the rubbish away and left the work area tidy, provided comprehensive paperwork and answered all the questions I had. It was the middle of lockdown and I was completely reassured by his attention to safety and respect for me and my home. He returned a couple of weeks later as planned, to check the filter and flush the heating system, again he arrived on time and completed the job quickly and efficiently. I am delighted to recommend Jamie as a trustworthy, reliable and professional tradesman.

Did exactly what he said he'd do, when he said he'd do it, at the price quoted.

Jamie and his assistant Andrew replaced my central heating system entirely, and I'm entirely satisfied with their work.

Jamie has helped me out on numerous occasions. Many call outs have been minor problems which, nevertheless, have defeated seasoned plumbers. Every time jobs have been completed quickly with minimal fuss at a very fair price. I am most grateful for the maintenance work on my boiler. Prior to Jamie's intervention, even the Worcester engineers had difficulty resolving recurrent problems. I wholeheartedly recommend his services.

Jamie and Darren completed a complete boiler replacement in just a day and a half. They removed all the old tanks, sealed off piping and fitted a new Windsor Bosch combi boiler. I also asked them if they could move the stop cock to a more accessible location, which they did. All round an excellent, professional, pleasant and tidy job carried out. Would have no issue recommending these guys.
