Bathroom Refit
Customer Service
Mark came out and quoted to rip out bathroom completely. Board ceiling and add spotlights. Fully tile walls and floor. Fit walk in shower, sink and toilet with units and tall storage cabinet. Work carried out meticulously and professionally. Always cleaned up after themselves at end of day. We are very happy with end results and would recommend to anyone. Will be using in future for any other plumbing jobs for sure.

Excellent overall experience

The initial visit and diagnosis was thorough and explained to me in detail. The resulting quote was timely and itemised. When on site, Mark & Co were extremely polite, tidy, thoughtful and thorough. The invoice was timely and accurate. A pleasure to work with.

Really helpful over Bank Holiday

They are doing our bathroom this week and went out of their way to help with a piece of prep work in a bank holiday Monday. Really really appreciated and so grateful.

Boiler Repair
Customer Service
Our Gloworm is 25 years old and I have used Optimum a few times over the years. They are honest and thorough workers, providing full details of the issues and options. This last repair required a replacement board which was sourced and fitted within 24 hours. I have recommended them to several friends and they've sorted issues for them that other heating engineers couldn't.

Excellent service again
Customer Service
Simon and Luke once again have done a great job for me. This time to replace a radiator and add some extra pipework. Great job, very clean and tidy conscientious workmen even doing an extra small job to make sure everything was perfect. Thanks again. Pat

Replacement Boiler
Customer Service
Optimum installed our new boiler with efficiency and care. The work was completed within the time we had been given and they went above and beyond to ensure that we were not without heating overnight. They were very tidy, considerate and polite while they were inside our house. We would recommend them.

High quality, reliable and fast
Customer Service
I have been working with Optimum for more than 5 years, they installed the central heating system in my rental property in Peterborough, many years ago. On this occasion I had an emergency which required the fitting of new bath taps, Optimum managed to find the original make and style of tap and had it fitted within a few hours, the Tenant was very impressed!, they always do such a great job and their prices are always fair, would highly recommend Optimum

Boiler fitted
Customer Service
Mark and his team fitted us a new boiler after the old one broke. They offered a reasonable quote and went the extra mile to make sure that everything was completed. The job was complicated due to existing issues within our plumbing which they remedied for us. The job was longer however we paid what was agreed, and they worked so hard. We have used them again since as we were so impressed with them.

New bathroom, new kitchen, new boiler
Customer Service
Mark and Bradley were a pleasure to have on site, even though the house was upside down. Made the distruption as little as possible. Very Hard working. Did a very thorough job. Advised what as needed for the work. Worked with what we'd asked for unless we were wrong then gave the most sensible way to do it. Our bathroom completely done by them is impressive. Marks details to finish makes the most of the tiling. The copper pipe work in the new kitchen looked so neat I was reluctant to put cupboards in front of them. Mark serviced and repair my gas hob. It is working more than good as new. He new boiler is working well and out of the way in the attic. We didn't know we needed a new boiler but are so pleased with it. The plinth radiators free up room for cupboards in the kitchen. They worked with other tradesmen that needed to be on site. It all went smoothly. Mark will do anything he can to help and make the job run smoothly with you having the finish you have asked for. We couldn't have asked for any better. So please they worked for us. I am passing on their details whenever I am asked.
