Gas Boiler replacement
Customer Service
Our old gas boiler required urgent replacement. I chose Richard Carbin Ltd based on our decision to install a Worcester boiler, and the reviews on Which of the local company. From a request to visit and advise us in early August to the removal of the old boiler and installation of the new system by mid-September, the team from Richard Cabin Ltd, led by Joe Carbin, were thoroughly professional and their work excellent. Highly recommended!

New Gas Boiler
Customer Service
We used this Company to install a replacement boiler for us and found them to be professional throughout. They answered the phone, returned calls promptly and turned up when they said they would. The installer carried out the work very neat and tidy manner. We cannot recommend this company highly enough and have already recommended them to many of our friends.
New Worcester Bosch Boiler
Customer Service
Joe Carbin's team recently replaced my 16 year old, oil boiler and installed a new external Worcester Bosch boiler in 2 days. The task also included building a new concrete plinth, new piping and a magnetic filter. The 2 man team were very efficient, good-humoured and cleaned-up each day after the task. I was kept informed of how the task was progressing and I had every trust in the team delivery on time, to performance and within budget. I have used Joe Carbin's company for a few house tasks now, and I recommend the company for all local projects.
Excellent boiler/central heating installation
Customer Service
The team fitted a new Worcester Bosch boiler for me, and central heating system. They also installed an oil tank and plinth for it. The work was competitively priced and carried out to a high standard. The engineers were prompt, helpful and very professional. I will certainly use Richard Carbin Ltd again and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thoroughly reliable and would thoroughly recommend
Customer Service
We have no hesitation in recommending this company. They stick to their estimates, arrive when they say they will,clear up afterwards and carry on working regardless of how late in the day it gets. The standard of their work is excellent.

Shower Room Conversion
Customer Service
The standard of work produced by the tradesmen who started the conversion was first class. It was never too much trouble to let me know what was happening or going to happen and what they would do. From start to finish the standard and quality of work was first class In fact it was a total delight to have them working in my home. I would recommend this company to everybody who wants a first class job carried out by first class tradesmen, in a first class fashion. If there was a higher class then that is where they would be.

Mr Kinder. Thank you for your very kind comments, it was a pleasure working with you. Best regards Joe Carbin
A superb service in Somerset
Customer Service
We called out this company on returning home to find water coming through a hole in the kitchen ceiling. A plumber called Joe arrived within minutes and confirmed the source of the trouble. The location of the leak was in an extremely difficult confined space to work but with skill and determination he replaced the broken parts which had been incorrectly fitted imperial to metric with compatible parts. He also improved matters by installing a better valve on the hot water feed. I was impressed by his calm, personable nature, non time wasting efficiency and tidiness. I would thoroughly recommend this company and in all honesty can say this is one bill I'll be glad to pay. Whatever the current labour rates may be I am confident that I can rate service, quality and value as 5 star

Revamped bathroom, new shower-room, revamped downstairs loo and new kitchen
Customer Service
Richard Carbin Ltd have recently carried out a variety of works in our old cottage. Revamping the ancient bathroom, installing a new shower room, sorting out the ancient pipework and tiling in the downstairs loo, revamping the plumbing in the new kitchen and installing a new boiler and radiators. At all times they are highly efficient, prompt, polite, unflappable (despite many difficulties not of their making) - and tidy, removing all their gubbins at the end of each day's work. We can't recommend them highly enough and wouldn't dream of using any other firm for this kind of work. They are great and very reasonably prices considering the quality of their work. Five Gold Stars!
