Ashley goes above and beyond the call of duty. He worked long days to get our new gas boiler fitted in time for the next phase in our refurb. Polite, knowledgable, tidy and patient, he genuinely cares about his customers. Highly recommend

I had received quotes from several installers, however Ashley came up with a better way to install the boiler which was far better and less intrusive. His work is impeccable from installation to completion he was very neat and tidy. All through the process he kept me informed with regular updates. He was efficient, energetic and always cleaned up at the end of the day. He has since ensured regular updates. I have no hesitation in recommending Ashley , brilliant!

Ashley was brilliant. He knows his stuff and diagnosed and fixed the problem straight away. He was very tidy (even took his boots off each time he went to his van and back). The house is lovely and toastie now, really can feel the difference. We would recommend highly.

Highly recommend Ashley, he fitted a complete new combi boiler and 7 rad central heating system and removed our old warm air heating system and filled in all the air vents - there were a lot. He kept in contact all along, updating us of everything he was doing, his time keeping was brilliant and he was always on the end of the phone to answer any questions we had and he was incredibly neat and tidy. The best thing was the quote we were given at the very beginning was the price we paid not a penny more.

I asked Ashley to install central heating after speaking with him and finding him polite and clear. He undertook the work, which was more involved than either of us expected, with care, precision and a very welcome amount of communication to let me know what was going on which I appreciated a lot. His advice and explanations were helpful and his work was tidy, which went for how he left his working equipment at the end of the day as well. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
