Latest Reviews and Feedback

James Guy has just fitted new electric shower. He was really on the ball, did the job efficiently and was very reasonably priced for the work. He then came back and sorted out a small leak in my kitchen and would not take any money for doing it. Would recommend him, and will certainly use him again.

James responded quickly and replaced a ball cock without any problems.  James was very pleasant and explained what needed doing.  I would certainly get James to do other plumbing jobs for us.

James is a genuinely nice man, sorted out our leak, gave a fair price. He was keen to help. He also found another leak that we had not yet noticed and therefore prevented bigger problems later. Based on the small job he has done I am very impressed, I will use again.

We had mishap with one of our radiators coming off the wall. An emergency service stopped the initial leak but we needed some help to repair the plumbing and re-fit the radiator to the wall. 1st Choice Plumbing came to the rescue. Firstly, they were very helpful in accommodating our requirements in coming to view the radiator and provide a quote - and then were ready to spring into action immediately after we had agreed a very reasonable price. They worked quickly and efficiently to repair the broken radiator and also to fix another which was loose and could have potentially suffered the same issue very soon. They tested the system to ensure everything was working correctly and they left everything clean and tidy on completion of the work. All in all, we're really pleased with the service that James delivered for us. I have no hesitation in recommending them for any domestic plumbing jobs you may need doing and will certainly use them again should the need arise.

James was on time for the appointment and was very friendly and got to work straight away. He resolved the problem quickly and efficiently and was very tidy, he knows his job inside out. Would recommend James to my friends and would definitely call him again if I have a problem. Already mentioned some improvements that I may need in the future.

James provided an excellent service for us. He carried out everything we asked for thoroughly and we only have praise for the works he’s done for us. He is friendly, polite and very tidy with his work. I would never hesitate in using him again or recommending him.

James managed to fit in my work at short notice and was charming. He replaced a broken toilet flush and explained the options and got the work done swiftly.

I have no hesitation in recommending James and 1st Choice Plumbing. He is very thorough and conscientious and kept us closely involved by discussing with us before and during the work. James took on a tricky job to replace our hot water tank. This was particularly difficult due to poor access and a tight fit. James discussed options with us in a straightforward manner, he explained the work and steps required and kept us updated on progress throughout. James took great care to complete the work in line with our wishes and to a very high standard. He returned the following day to double-check that everything had been done properly.

James came in March to change a sink and taps, and re-site plumbing for the washing machine. I have delayed posting a review until now so that I can consider the longer term quality of the work. James was friendly and explained everything well without us feeling he was "dumbing it down" for us. He was extremely conscientious in his work and got us to check everything with him when he had finished so that we were all happy that everything was properly sealed etc. Although only three months on, everything continues to be in great working order. We had had a lot of problems with plumbers not turning up to do a quote, or failing to send the quote after visiting. It was a relief to find someone who was true to their word, kept us informed, and provided a high standard of work.

AH 06 17

James supplied and fitted an outdoor tap for us, teeing off the kitchen supply and routing new pipework through external wall. His quotation was detailed and reasonable, he turned up at the appointed day and time and the tap works exactly as it should. He explained what he was doing and how he was doing it and cleaned up after the job. Very courteous and professional throughout.

DO 08 15

After obtaining estimates to repair a leaking radiator at my home I asked James Guy to do the work. This involved flushing out the system, changing the radiator valve and replacing pipe work. 

I believe he charged me a good price for the job, he was punctual, polite and kept me informed throughout.  I was happy with his work and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
