Derek turned up to look at the job fiddled with the pipe made the leak a bit worse than it was and said he would send a quote later that day and he could do it soon That was the last i heard from derek I wouldn't of minded if he just said i don't want the job but instead it all went silent despite me sending a message to ask if he still wanted to quote When i spent the time to be in the house for him to come and look at it it just strikes me as a bit ignorant not to just say i don't want the job.

Friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Job well done

My name is Aidan. I am new to the area but by no means new to plumbing and the building trade. I moved here for love and left behind a very successful bathroom and plumbing installation company. I previously worked as recommended by a showroom company so I spent a lot of time creating beautiful bathrooms. My eye for detail really lent itself to the quality of finish, right across the board with tiling,plastering,plumbing, heating and kitchen fitting. I have worked on bathrooms where the materials chosen cost so much it’s scary. Likewise I can work on a B&Q £400 bathroom bundle. My gas safe certification is about to lapse however my knowledge and qualifications are of the highest standard, as this is a new beginning for me I am reluctant to retake the course right now until I understand how beneficial it will be for me in the future. As for me. I am a young man with 15 years on site experience that has always been willing to work hard and treat people fairly. I more than not keep customers for life and am always more than willing to go out of my way to keep people happy. I usually have my dog with me as he is my best bud and comes everywhere with me. If this is a problem he is more than happy to wait for me in the van. Or if you want to say hi he loves people,kids, dogs. He loves everything. We can’t wait to meet you.

What type of tradesperson do you need?

What type of job is it?

Plumbers - what you need to know

Plumbers are a crucial part of maintaining or building any sort of property. Most people know about one side of the job - unblocking drains and toilets - but it’s far more in-depth than that. If you’re getting a bathroom done you’ll need them to work with an architect or bathroom specialist to figure out the best position for your bath, shower, toilet and sink. They’ll then make sure all the pipes and plumbing are in the right place to fit them all, as well as to produce the best water flow through your home.

What a plumber can help with

  • Installing and repairing bathrooms, radiators, appliances, taps and boilers.
  • Removing blockages in toilets and drainage.
  • Detecting and repairing leaks, in both water and gas systems.
  • Replacing old plumbing.
  • Repairing burst water pipes.

They install radiators and common appliances like dishwashers and washing machines, again, making sure that waste pipes and taps are exactly where they need to be.

Of course there’s also the little jobs like leaky taps and shower heads they can take care of too, but if you’re getting them round for a job like that, it might also be worth booking them in for a boiler check.

Boilers

Boilers need to be serviced once a year by a qualified plumber - look out for the Gas Safe certificate on our tradespeople’s profile pages.

Boilers tend to break down during the winter months when they’re most in use, so it’s a good idea to book a plumber in at the end of summer before they get too busy. They tend to be in-demand once it gets cold, dealing with emergency jobs where heating and hot water need to be restored urgently. If you get ahead of the game with a pre-emptive boiler check you’re also likely to get a better rate.

Costs for common plumbing jobs

We surveyed our tradespeople about the costs of common plumbing jobs – here’s what you can expect to pay.

Some typical jobs Low High
Shower installation £100 £375
Bath installation £150 £375
Toilet installation £100 £300
Water tank installation £150 £375
Radiator installation £150 £150
Taps installation £50 £150
Boiler repair £150 £700
Boiler installation £1300 £3000

The qualifications your plumber needs

Gas Safe

If a tradesperson carries out gas work, they have to be Gas Safe registered. They’ll carry a personal ID card which you can ask to see, so check their licence number and expiry date. When tradespeople join us, we also check this, as only Gas Safe registered tradespeople are able to purchase these types of job.

What is Gas Safe?

”Gas

Gas Safe is the official list of gas engineers who are registered to work safely and legally on boilers, cookers, fires and all other gas appliances.

By law all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register. The Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in 2009.

Planning permission for plumbers

In general, internal works don’t require planning permission unless you’re in a listed building. This includes kitchens and bathrooms, except when they’re part of a house extension.

For more detail, go to Planning Portal

Insurance for plumbers

Anyone who works on your home, including plumbers, should have valid public liability insurance, which protects both tradespeople and homeowners should anything go wrong while on the job.

Accidental damage insurance is also important, so that your house is safe in the event of any unexpected problems.

 

Questions you should ask a plumber
