Very happy with the service Jamie provided. Needed a new boiler which involved a bit of problem solving and Jamie found a better more cost effective solution than I had been advised by anyone else.

I contacted Jamie to install a new boiler for me after my old one packed in. He was professional in all aspects of the service, from sticking to the appointments he made with me, doing what he said he would do when he said he would do it, giving me a lot of confidence that things would go smoothly and in fact they did, which significantly reduced my anxiety levels! The boiler is fabulous, the new HIVE smart thermostat is wonderful and I could not be happier with the work done. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

I used J McCartney (Plumbing & Heating Limited) to replace our old and inefficient boiler. Jamie was fantastic at talking us through available options and recommending correct size of boiler to suit our needs. He answered all our questions honestly and in full and even took time to explain the controls. Fitting was completed as agreed with minimal mess and disruption and all rubbish was taken away. A genuine business I would have no hesitation in recommending to others.

I used J McCartney (Plumbing & Heating Limited) to install a top of the range boiler and a new radiator for our kitchen which was being redone. Jamie was very efficient. He turned up on time and worked quickly and efficiently and explained throughout the progress he was making. Jamie also put new valves on our older radiators throughout the house which were broken. A year later we have had no issues with the boiler or radiators and we intend to use Jamie in the future. He came highly recommended through word of mouth and lived up to all our expectations.

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 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.

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.

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.

Would have no issue recommending these guys.

Jamie has now refurbished both our downstairs bathroom in Q4 2018 and the upstairs bathroom in April 2019 . We are delighted with the result of both as we now have high quality wetrooms which will last a long time. Clearly there is an awful lot of disruption to the household routine when you have this type of work done , and through good planning , Jamie kept this to the bare minimum . All his tradesmen , whether joiner , plasterer , electrician , tiler , or plumber , were experienced and provided a quality job . His pricing was competitive and there was no extra cost , the invoice was as estimated . We would have no hesitation in recommending Jamie to any prospective customers who want to refurbish their bathrooms .

I was very pleased with the boiler installation Jamie and team did for me. He provided a competitive quote and gave me some good advice on the available boiler options. He suggested a Vaillant Ecofit boiler, as they are Vaillant accredited this came with a 7 year guarantee instead of the usual 2. The work was done within a week of my accepting his quote which was excellent as my old boiler was on its last legs. He arrived on time the 3 times he visited the work was done to a high standard and in a very professional manner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jamie and team for any plumbing and heating work. I will certainly be choosing them for the servicing of the boiler and any additional plumbing work I may require in future.

Contacted Jamie to install a new boiler the week running up to Christmas after our existing semi commercial boiler broke down and we were unable to get replacement parts. Jamie was extremely informative with his advise regarding various brands and boilers and equivalent output needed for the size of property. We were happy to leave Jamie with our property keys to install the boiler when we were away for our Christmas break. Jamie kept us informed every step of the way and we were delighted to come home to a clean and tidy house and having no mess to clean up. Couldn't recommend Jamie highly enough and we appreciated him working over the holidays to get my heating up and running again.

In summary, Jamie delivered a really good service. He obviously really knows his technical stuff, is experienced but also knows about new innovations. Our old boiler, on a vented system, broke in the midst of a really cold spell. We sought 3 quotes and Jamie's was competitive and comprehensive and was he able to give us a date. Jamie gave very good advice on what to replace our old system with (a good sized combi) and was able to recommend a brilliant thermostat you can control from a phone - which gives a really user friendly way of setting and adapting central heating routines. He and his colleague dismantled the old system and installed the new one very cleanly and efficiently; returning a week later to flush the system and complete some tasks. The new system is a transformation: heating and hot water are completely transformed and the family are delighted. So, nothing but praise for Jamie and his company. Really efficient and sound. I will be using him for annual servicing.

Jamie offered a very competitive price after clearly laying out my options for a new boiler. The installation took place within a couple of days of the quote (much needed as no central heating at this time) and was carried out efficiently and cleanly. When an under floor cracked pipe was identified by Jamie, he immediately contacted me and then proceeded to find and rectify the problem with the minimum fuss - and at no extra cost. A very professional and personable service - I have no hesitation in recommending Jamie to anyone looking for a new boiler installation.

Jamie carried out a whole range of work for us during a house renovation. This included completely replacing a bathroom, en-suite and a WC, replacing all radiators, replacing mains gas piping to kitchen, and replacing all gas and water piping in the kitchen. He was very helpful and flexible over what was a large project. The results looked good. Jamie was easy to work with and, after a major project, he charged exactly what he originally quoted.

After my boiler broke, I called out J McCartney to have a look. Jamie was very polite and professional and quickly diagnosed the issue, offering 2 solutions of fixing the problem or replacing the boiler and provided 2 separate quotes for each job with the decision in our hands. As our boiler was quite an old system we elected for the replacement and had a date booked in for the work. I had mentioned it would be good if he could keep us in mind for any cancellations that came up and true to his word a couple of days later I received a call advising they had a cancellation and could they come round to do the work. The work was done professionally to a high standard, Jamie did advise that as this was a cancellation it may take slightly longer as the electrician required was already busy, so I was made aware in advance that it may take 2 days rather than the 1 to complete which was no problem but I did appreciate him being upfront that the duration of the job would change and why. The work was completed to a very high standard and Jamie was very clear on what work was required and the time it would take to complete. I would happily recommend J McCartney Plumbing and will be using them again in the future for any plumbing work we require.
