Latest Reviews and Feedback

After reading the many great reviews I decided to contact Sam. As we have had a nightmare getting a new bathroom installed by some cowboys (after getting their details via recommendation). The pipes were making an awful noise when flushing the loo and the washers on my shower attachment kept going (causing a drip). Sam came out and he was prompt, friendly and did his best to correct the two issues. Would recommend Sam to anyone looking for a plumber!! Thank you for all your help Sam. I think we finally have some silence from the pipes. Fingers crossed:-)

Whilst waiting on another job, Sam was willing to come over and take a look at a leak coming through my ceiling. He arranged for his colleague Luke to come out and fix the issue within 2 days. Both Luke and Sam were very professional, polite and willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything was working correctly and I was happy. Can't recommend them both highly enough.

PW 11 19

Recommended by a local plumbing shop. After a nightmare scenario with a rogue trading company I was left in the cold as neither the installation was correct nor could I seek compensation as the company went into liquidation. Sam was fantastic both in communication about getting the job done and getting the mess sorted out. He has a “no-nonsense” approach and is meticulous in what he does, taking pride in making the job neat and tidy. I’m so impressed with his work and quote that I’m looking to get him in again in the new year to do some more jobs. Thoroughly recommended!

ME 11 19

Cannot recommend highly enough! Polite, efficient, prompt and reasonable. A really good plumber with an excellent work ethic.

MS 11 19

Sam came out with fairly short notice to service my boiler - and I am so glad I did. He found the fault quickly and reassured me on a way forward at a decent cost. Very much recommend anyone local to call Sam for their boiler needs.

SJ 10 19

Sam came to the house as we had various plumbing problems that needed fixing. He was a charming young man very polite and courteous. The best thing is that he fixed most of the plumbing jobs and will be returning to fix the rest. Wonderful service and I highly recommend him.

SK 10 19

Review no. 2 Following Sams visit and his estimate for installing a new boiler and flushing out our heating system I have to give more great feedback. Sam and his partner arrived as planned on the 4th October and installed and commissioned our lovely new boiler, flushed out our system and got the heating and hot water up and running. A great job again, on time, on budget and as promised. More great service from this firm and another really happy customer. Thanks again Sam, and hopefully we will only see you again next year for the first service (which is a bonus as it’s complimentary).

DP 10 19

Lovely, friendly man. No job to small or too tough. Great job replacing kitchen mixer tap and water heater service. Gave great advice for further plumbing/heating improvements on my old terrace house.

SC 09 19

Excellent service. Great communication. Reasonably priced. What more can you ask? First class!           

LG 09 19

SJW completed an annual service on my boilers and attended to some other plumbing issues. Sam was prompt, professional and very pleasant to work with. The work was carried out quickly, competently and cleanly. I cannot recommend him and his company highly enough. Full five stars.

LT 09 19

Our pump was playing up plus had an outage on our boiler. Spoke with Sam Monday morning based on his replies and other firms in this book not bothering to return calls and was booked in for that Wednesday. This guy gets customer service and I can genuinely see why he has had such great reviews. Not only did he know his stuff but he kept me up to speed with his arrival time, his quote was accurate both in terms of job time and price and got to say his work was brilliant. We have been dithering about getting a new boiler for a while. Because of his attitude approach and customer focus he’s landed that bit of work as well. Watch out for the follow up review after 4th October when our new Worcester boiler is up and running. A couple of firms on here can learn a lot from this very able professional - thanks Sam.

DP 09 19

Sam has installed Heating systems, underfloor heating, bathrooms,toilets and kitchen plumbing for us over the past 3 years, I would highly recommend getting a quote from him! His work is fantastic, he is conscientious and friendly with it.

MG 09 19

Smart, punctual, personable and efficient - no hesitation about recommending Sam to anyone.               

RC 08 19

I had my boiler serviced by Sam, excellent service and let me know when he was arriving, he also did a small plumbing job at the same time, I highly recommend him.

AS 07 19

Sam came out very promptly when we found we had problems with our old boiler and we are very pleased with his work installing a new boiler, pump and controls. Sam's approach was caring and professional and it was a pleasure to have him and Lewis working in our home.

GJ 07 19

Sam is very professional and friendly. He would go out of his way to ensure job is done properly and customer is happy. I used his services to repair my electric water tank and he did a great job. I would highly recommend Sam, no doubt.

HN 07 19

I had a new combi boiler installed and new radiators installed throughout the house and Sam was very professional in installing it. The work was extremely neat. His communication was brilliant and the finish was to a very high standard. I highly recommend Sam and I will definitely use him again in the future! Thanks!

FR 07 19

Excellent service. Prompt telephone response and arrived at agreed appointment time. Good explanation of issue and action required. I would use this firm again as professional and reliable. In fact a ‘ turn to’ company for help and work.

FD 06 19

Sam Walker fitted a new water softener in our house this week.  His quote was very competitive   He was very efficient and friendly and we are happy with the result.  I would certainly recommend his services.

JU 06 19

Had a problem with our boiler (the central heating was stuck on and the house was trying to cook us alive!). Called Sam (on a recommendation from a friend) and he came round the next day to have a look at the boiler. Sam arrived when he said he would, quickly diagnosed the fault (faulty 2-port valve), replaced the faulty part and got the system back to working order on the same day. Sam was polite and professional and got the job done quickly without causing any mess or disturbance. The final bill was in line with the Sam's estimate and overall seemed like a fair price for his work. Would definitely use Sam again and recommend him to others who are looking for a trustworthy and professional boiler engineer.

As 06 19

Sam came out within a few days of emailing him for a quote appointment and was able quickly to discern the issue with the kitchen pipes. Although, not intended in the quote, Sam also kindly checked out the dishwasher which had been displaying error lights and not running. He was fiddled with the connections for a few minutes and got the dishwasher running without requiring another visit and would have been able to fit another dishwasher if necessary. Sam was able to come back within a couple weeks of the quote to complete the pipe repairs and was quick and efficient at this as well. He made sure the pipes did not leak after the repair was complete and left no mess behind. I am very happy with his work and recommend him to anyone looking for great service.

LV 05 19

Sam came out to me within 30 minutes of calling yesterday when I was left with no hot water. Very professional, quick and clean but also a lovely guy who was great with my two young boys. Highly recommended!

MM 05 19

Having read many glowing reviews, I called Sam to service the boiler. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out many faults/shortcuts other gas companies have done and advised replacing a vintage pump and broken valve which he did later in the week. He is friendly, polite, pro, and will let you know what he's doing as he's working on the fix.

WL 05 19

Can't recommend Sam highly enough! He came out at short notice on a Saturday for me and really helped me out. Was impressed by his knowledge and experience and have already rebooked him for some other non urgent work at my house. Would definitely recommend.

JG 05 19

Brilliant plumber, really honest and a decent price. Came out as an emergency and was here within 20 mins. Would definitely recommend Sam.

SD 05 19

Sam was very amenable, he came within 3 hours to a non emergency leak. He fixed the issue and was very happy to look at other ongoing issues. I would recommend Sam to anyone who has any plumbing issues.

NL 05 19

Sam did a great job I rang him in the morning and he arrived early afternoon identified problem and got new part from my local plumber shop and fixed pipe all good. 10 out of 10, many thanks Sam.

JF 05 19

Great service from Sam today for my boiler service which he fitted a year ago. I would definitely recommend him and he kindly resealed my shower for me while he was here!

CM 04 19

Excellent and swift work from Sam. Pleasure to have him around. Can’t fault him.                                 

PM 04 19

Called out Sam to service the boiler. Arrived on time, polite, gave the boiler a thorough service. Identified a fault and gave me a quote by text shortly after visit to rectify. Most professional plumber I have used and will be using again.

AR 04 19

Efficient, friendly and reliable. Definitely worth considering Sam as your "main" plumber rather than second choice.

SA 04 19

Had an emergency issues which I thought stemmed from my boiler. However being without a boiler for five days I called Sam and he came out within an hour. Issue was with the gas supply coming into the home. Part was ordered and fitted immediately. Sam has also worked for two other members of my family and I would have no issue recommending him.

JB 04 19

Sam has serviced and repaired our ageing warm-air gas boiler and gas water heater for the last four years. Always on time, always courteous and very enthusiastic about his job. I am very happy to recommend Sam!

JR 04 19

Sam came out the same day when my underfloor heating stopped working and fixed the problem quickly and efficiently. He has also replaced a faulty shower pump in the same efficient manner. Sam is always punctual, polite and tidy. I would highly recommend him for any plumbing needs.

MM 04 19

SJW Plumbing & Heating installed my new Active Heating Thermostat, Sam completed the job swiftly while keeping me informed of the work being carried out, kept everything looking neat and ensured it was set up/working correctly. Highly recommended. Will use again.

RC 04 19

Sam recently installed our new heating system and we are over the moon with his service. He spent valuable time going through our requirements and his communication throughout the works was fantastic. He was honest, reliable and very neat and tidy. We would highly recommend him.

Mr 03 19

He is the man for all your plumbing needs. Prices are reasonable and got all the work done in a timely fashion and didn’t mess me around with anything.

BN 03 19

I would recommend Sam Walker of SJW as he carried out the work at my home in a very efficient, quick and tidy manner. He charged a very good price and was also a very nice person to meet.

GB 03 19

Sam fitted a new boiler for me, at first it presented a few problems which he resolved. He was pleasant, polite and professional. He takes customer service seriously which is rare nowadays. I would highly recommend this business.

JW 03 19

Sam carried out a service for me. He was very efficient and kept me informed of problems he had found. He sorted the problems and I think perhaps liaised with boiler manufacturer when it was something he did not have to do. In doing this Sam actually saved me money in so far as advising me that a plan I had taken out was unnecessary as the boiler itself was covered for more years than I had realised. As well as this he is very pleasant and presentable and I will certainly call upon him in future should I have any difficulties and would recommend him unreservedly.

AB 03 19

Sam was on time and charged as quoted. The industry needs more Sam’s, would highly recommend as honest, conscientious, tidy and polite. Don’t hesitate to call and book.

DJ 03 19

Sam has just fixed my 'very old' boiler. The work was carried out in a most professional and friendly way, keeping me fully informed of what he was doing and why. First class service - highly recommended. Will use again.

BC 03 19

Sam is brilliant, he’s managed to get me out of a jam a couple of times with the plumbing and heating at the house. Very professional and personable, I would certainly recommend him to all.

AJ 03 19

Sam is a very pleasant and reliable man. He always calls when he says and has been very helpfull.I would always be happy to recommend him. Nothing is too much trouble.

JT 03 19

Sam fixed a few plumbing issues for me recently, a new descaler on my boiler, a new valve on a heated towel rail and a fixed a dripping tap. He was super tidy, and quick, and charged a very reasonable price. He clearly is very skilled and experienced, he turned up when he said he would, and I'd have no hesitation in recommending this very personable, cheerful and polite man to anyone.

RD 03 19

I really want to really highly recommend Sam and his team for doing such a great job fitting in a new boiler system and getting the heat back on for my mum. He went above and beyond helping us after a bad experience with another plumber,and we can’t thank him enough sorting it out! They are very quick and efficient,it’s such a neat job and both very tidy. If you need a job doing I can honestly recommend him most highly. What Lovely guys, thank you!

LG 03 19

We had a new boiler fitted three years ago and had THREE different plumbers in to 'fix' the issues that arose from the poor installation. SJW were recommended to us and, after several overlooked problems were rectified - and an efficient control system installed - the heating/hot water system is faultless. If you need a truly professional plumber/heating engineer then look no further than SJW. Highly Recommended.

MO 03 19

Sam has done a few plumbing jobs for me recently, He sorted a rare problem with ease that a previous cowboy had left behind. He was extremely knowledgable and quick at a fair price.

Sam has been twice to my house now. He is always smiling, friendly, reliable and professional. The last job he did for me was particularly difficult but for Sam, no problem. He comes highly recommended by me.

KB 03 19

Sam Walker is a lovely chap. He’s friendly and very professional.  I contacted him as my grandfather was in hospital after suffering a stroke and as he was being taken into hospital he had a leak from the pipe work in his kitchen ceiling.  His neighbour called out some cowboy who charged the earth and didn’t even fix it properly but switched his heating off. Sam came out and was able to power flush the system for us, change the 2 two port valves and service the boiler to ensure it was safe for my grandad. He also re did the pipe work in the ceiling as the cowboy had piped it up wrong. He restored the heating to the property which in turn allowed social services to allow my grandad home. 

I find Sam to be trustworthy, punctual and professional as well as communicating well with regards to keeping me updated on the status of the job. 

I would highly recommend Sam to anyone!!

OD 03 19

Sam from SJW Plumbing replaced an old boiler with a new model and installed smart controls to go with the new installation. Both he and his team were very professional.

Sam J. Walker was recommended to me by the offices of Warfield Park, Bracknell. I have used his services twice recently, the first time to change a bathroom tap and then to find and order a new water softener to replace my old one which was beyond repair. I am very pleased with the work he has done on both occasions, he is a very reliable, pleasant qualified professional. He works fast, and his fees are very competitive. I shall use his services for the maintenance of my new gas boiler and of course whenever I have a plumbing or gas problem. I have therefore no hesitation in recommending his SJW Company.

AM 02 19

I had leak, unknown to me, from the in loop water filter from the mains in to my flat which decide to start at around 10pm at night. I had been recommend to Sam previously but never had to use him, so thought I'd give him a try as he was local. He came over as soon as he could and quickly identified the problem. He had parts on him to do the job and had the lead fix in around 20 minutes, he even helped me with removing the carpets that had been socked in the leak. Considering the time of night and the speed in which he got to me I thought the charge was very reasonable. Very professional and would recommend to anyone, I've even got him coming round next week to fit a new radiator.
