Bathroom fitter

Peter was really helpful from day one, providing recommendations for what shower to buy etc. He was also happy for us to buy the bath & vanity ourselves for him to fit as I had seen exactly what I wanted on soak. He even noticed little details like the old air brick & suggested a fan vent to replace it & also when the vanity was in place we all agreed there toilet seat was cheap & ruined the look so he turned up the next day with a replacement! Thank you Peter!

I cannot praise Peter enough. From the moment he came to provide a quote, to the moment he finished his standard is 5 star. He suggestion to have a digital shower, was something I had never heard of, and it is amazing. His quality of work, and value for money is outstanding. I had no worries or issues with giving him me house key for over a week and he would come and go as he pleased, tidying up after himself each day.... he even vacuumed my house when he left. I cannot recommend him enough!

Peter and his son Tom provided an excellent service from start to finish, always explaining the options available and costs involved for the work. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Peter Howell arrived on time, very polite and friendly. Looked at where the problem was and said he had a pump in the van and could fit it today. This was excellent news (not having two showers working). There was another man with Peter and they both started working on the job.. The work was soon done, just over half an hour. All was clean and tidy when they left. Cost was a little more than expected but the relief of getting the showers mended overruled that.

We are very happy with the two bathrooms that Peter and Tom converted to showers. The price was very reasonable and the work was carried out to a high standard. Peter and Tom are very friendly and helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending them .

The standard of work was excellent but very expensive for the actual time it took to complete the job.

SANDIE WYATT's question
Wed 14 Mar 2018 18:44pm
Hi, The radiators in my house have the bleed nuts at the rear (not on the ends unfortunately). On the double radiators there are 2 bleed nuts: one on the rear panel on the inner right hand side and one on the front panel on the inner left hand side. Question: (answer will be obvious to you!) which way do I turn the nuts to let out the air? Also, some of the bleed nuts seem to be stuck. Any ideas on how to loosen them? Many thanks

    Hi sandie unfortunately these type of air vents can be a bit troublesome being that they go directly into the rad rather than in a bleed but on the end of a rad Be carful because if it shears off you will be in a pickle if they appear to be stuck it could just be a build up of paint around them you could try chipping that off with a small screwdriver or something similar If you have success it’s righty tight lefty loose remember if they are a the back of the rad you are working back to front Good luck

    It very much sounds like there could be a leak on the incoming mains water do you know if anyone else nearby is experiencing the same issues
