Thorough job
Customer Service
Neil flushed out my central heating system and did not leave a mess. It was potentially a messy job since the water in my central heating system was black! I was not able to stay while he worked and he sent me a video of the water coming from the flushed system and it was absolutely sparkling clean. Fantastic attention to detail, and not only that, he actually offered us an alternative for repairing our problem boiler when a fixed price repair would work out cheaper. I respect him and hope his business flourishes. *****

Great work
Customer Service
Neil and his team upgraded our central heating system by fitting a new boiler and radiators for us. They also undertook as a few jobs in our bathroom. We were given welcome advice both prior to the work starting and during it when necessary. Neil has an eye for detail and the standard of work was excellent. The team were all extremely polite and pleasant to have around. They took care to protect our carpets etc and did a good job tidying up after themselves. We’re delighted with the finished job and would happily recommend them.

Brilliant service, professional, helpful, honest, reliable & friendly service
Customer Service
I have nothing but praise for the service I received from Neil McKay & his team at Plumbfaster. I needed a plumber to deal with a boiler emergency that was causing flooding to my neighbours below me. Very grateful for the amazing customer service & workmanship and helpful explanations of the work being carried out and consciousness of current Covid-19 restrictions. First Class service, I would highly recommend Plumbfaster.

Fantastic with agreed work + extra done very quickly and in budget
Customer Service
Did an amazing and very thorough job on extremely short notice in the midst of lockdown, getting a new boiler installed in a day and leaving us with hot water again after another plumber fell through. Highly recommend Neil, he goes above and beyond every step of the way!

Excellent and first class replacement of boiler
Customer Service
A very professional and competent installer. Despite the Covid -19 restrictions, after diagnosing that our existing boiler was not worth repairing because of its age and potential for further breakdowns, in a very short time he was able to source and install a new replacement. Neil gave a schedule to which he adhered. He displayed his expertise by discussing clearly his programme and despite some complications, was able to complete the task in one day. He exhibited a friendly and frank attitude at all stages of the installation which was neat and tidy. The clean up and disposal of old materials were excellent as was the quality of workmanship. His equipment and tools were comprehensive and of high quality. The cost of the work was both reasonable and good value.

Quality work from Plumbmaster
Customer Service
Total replacement of bathroom removing all existing fittings and fitting of new shower, sink, toilet. All electrical work and tiling carried out. Very pleased with the result. Neil discussed all work in advance and readjusted when we requested slight changes. Would highly recommend

Reliable and thorough workmanship
Customer Service
The work was a revision to my existing system to put in a magnetic unit to collect sludge he also replace 3 very old radiators - 2 were like for like but the third one was not the correct size so Neil calculated the correct size for the area it was in and replaced it so now the house is so much warmer

Hi Lesley , thank you for choosing plumb faster to carry out your work , it was a pleasure and always thank you for the coffee(s). See you for next years service .
Trustworthy and Reliable
Customer Service
I'd highly recommend Neil. He came around same day to check out what was wrong with the boiler and gave easily understandable information so we could make the right choice of what to do; including a choice of new boilers. He got on with the awkward job quickly, discussing regulations and what the options were (he had to drill new vent holes and block up the old ones). Neil did a really neat job (better than what was there before) and left the place spotless. We had a few questions a few days later and he came around and helped us sort out a couple of things. Trustworthy tradesman. I've referred other people to Neil and hope to get him in for some planned work early in the new year.
