Latest Reviews and Feedback

Michael recently installed a full central heating system in my Aunts home replacing her existing hot water boiler and storage heaters. My Aunt is an elderly lady who whilst being quite independent needs the assurance that she is dealing with a trustworthy tradesman. Michael is exactly that. He was very prompt in providing a very competitive and detailed quote, plus went to great lengths to explain what the installation entailed. During the installation he was a very tidy worker, kept my Aunt and I fully informed of his progress and completed the work in a timely manner to a high standard. We would fully recommend Michael.

Fantastic service - came the very next day, called to let us know that he was on the way and fixed the problem before there was time for the kettle to boil. Highly recommended.

Mike is one of the good guys in the Plumbing world. He did the work to a very high standard, communicated with me very well about what he was doing and why. The quote was what I expected for a new boiler and the added touches like a 7 year warranty and happy to advise on other things sets him apart. I will use Mike for the rest of his Plumbing working life, and will recommend to friends in the area. A nice conscientious guy!

Michael arrived bang on time, was really friendly and kept me well informed about progress. My toilet flush had been very weak and he had all the replacement parts to fix it there and then. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic response, Michael was nearby and managed to get to our house within 2 minutes to fix a split bathroom tap joint which was leaking through the ceiling below. It was quickly fixed with no mess, a great service.

Just had Michael round to sort out an insistent leaky tap. He's prompt, courteous, efficient and friendly. Kept in contact on the day so I knew when to expect him, told me exactly what he was doing and charged a reasonable price. He's cat and dog friendly, trustworthy, cleans up and does a great job too. I've needed to find a decent plumber for a couple of years now and will definitely hang on to him now I've found him and am very happy to recommend him.

Michael came to my home on a Sunday Emergency call-out. It was a lovely hot day, the first this year when I know he had hoped to have a family afternoon. He nevertheless repaired a very insistent leak and kept his good humour throughout, saving my downstairs flooring with his prompt action. He has a friendly nature and we easily found common topics of interest to chat about even though the age gap between us is considerable. He also took care to ensure he was not overcharging me, and that was very kind. Oh importantly, the job was well done.

Michael Gardener arrived as agreed and quickly identified the problem, fitted the new parts and efficiently effected the repair leaving the area very clean and tidy. Michael was extremely helpful, pleasant, polite as well as most professional in his approach. I consider that the charge for the work undertaken was reasonable and the discount offered was as published in the LGB therefore based on my experience of his work and his standards I am happy to give him a strong recommendation.

Michael came on an emergency call for a toilet. He was very polite and arrived when he said he would. He quickly fixed the problem and the total charge was less than the quote.

Great service, friendly, tidy and reliable.  I had three jobs done, new hot water tank, kitchen taps fitted and toilet fixed. All work carried out to highest standards thoroughly recommend Michael and will be using again .

Michael removed our gas fireplace for us. Very polite and friendly, arranged to do the job within a week of me calling. Great service and good price. Definitely happy to use him again and to recommend him to others.

VM 01 16

Michael delivered an excellent service. He responded promptly, gave me an idea of the price (which was pretty much what I paid), and he was friendly and efficient. He did a number of plumbing jobs for me and was honest enough to tell me I didn't need new taps for the repair, even though he had bought some with him. Michael's service was excellent and his price was competitive and fair. I will certainly use him again. 

MG 08 15

We needed Michael's help twice in the last few months. It is clear that Michael believes in doing the best job possible for his customers and that the reputation of his company is most important to him. We would not hesitate to recommend his services.

A7 carried out a complete bathroom refit for us and to our delight it was completed on time to the required standard and at the agreed price. I would like to mention that the service was customer focused and would use him again. I was particularly impressed by the free technical advice he had given me prior to advising him of any work doing.

RD 01 12

I called out Michael to fix a dripping tap. Due to complications with the tap and the sink, we ended up replacing the whole sink. Michael appeared on time and acted in a friendly and professional manner. Throughout the installation, Michael was extremely helpful in getting the extra parts and explaining what he was doing and why as he went along. I am very happy with the new sink, the price charged was very fair, so I will definitely be contacting Michael again for any future plumbing work.
