Strict covid-19 rules at the start of lockdown were restrictive but simple to understand.

Back to business as usual – almost!

Plumbing and heating services

Thus far we have focused on emergency repairs and boiler servicing but we're pleased to announce that we are now offering a full range of all our services - subject to our usual covid-19 working practices of course, including use of PPE and hand sanitiser, and social distancing. So, if a dripping tap or a temperamental toilet has been driving you mad, or you just want to do some proactive maintenance or home improvement such as a powerflush or having a new shower installed, you can now get that sorted!
