Latest Reviews and Feedback

I highly recommend this company for your plumbing or heating problems. Dave came at the time requested, ascertained the problem and fixed it with no fuss. He was very good with my elderly mother-in-law too so she felt very comfortable with him being there and unlike some companies he didn't try to rip her off by over-egging the problem. So we wouldn't hesitate to use this company again and if there was a score out of 10, I would give them a 10.

Dave did an excellent job in checking/servicing the boiler and finding the cause of an odd electrical fault in my heating system. He was professional and thorough, taking the time to explain any issues found. Costs were fair. I will definitely be using them again.

Outstanding service from David and Mark for a tricky boiler issue. Totally trustworthy. Excellent communications at all stage of problem determination. Their card is now on my fridge as they will be the first point of call for any future plumbing problems. Very highly recommended.

If you want a plumbing job done to the highest standards, then choose Allwright - not necessarily the cheapest - but first-class workmanship and service.

TL 09 17

A call-out to a badly leaking kitchen tap at my elderly mother's home. It was dealt with promptly by David; my mother was reassured by his manner and approach since, being frail, she is very wary of strangers. The fee was reasonable and I will have no hesitation in using this firm should a future need arise. Allwright Plumbing is highly recommended! 

TR 08 17

Having recently moved into a new property we discovered an issue with the flush in the cloakroom. We were extremely pleased with the service received to quickly identify and rectify the issue with the drain. Very friendly and professional service, taking the time to explain so we could understand the issue and the drainage arrangement in the property. Everything was left extremely clean and tidy. Would definitely use their services again and highly recommend.

CP 08 17

Called Allwright to service boiler and install new gas valve (old one was leaking). Came to inspect the work to check for parts required. Once parts arrived (within a week) installed and serviced boiler. Worked cleanly, explained what was done in non technical terms and left the area tidy when finished. I was very impressed with the speed and professionalism they showed. I would have no hesitation in using them again and recommending them.

DL 08 17

Excellent service with prompt attention, clear explanation of the problem and possible solutions. Arrived on time and worked cleanly, leaving everything clean and tidy afterwards. I have no hesitation in recommending David and Mark.

CA 06 17

I contacted Allwright Plumbing & Drainage Ltd, as our boiler was not coming on when it should, Dave came out promptly, explained what the problem was and arranged to come back in a few days to fit a new PCB cartridge. He arrived on time, fitted the new part and carried out a service on our boiler. He also checked and tested everything was working ok before leaving. Dave was very friendly, efficient, tidy and did an excellent job. I will certainly use them again and would not hesitate in recommending them to others. 

AS 06 17

We have called out Mark and David of Allwright Plumbing a couple of times. Even though it was an emergency – nothing was too much trouble and they were helpful and courteous.

GP 05 17

We had a serious leek with our shower, which we invited Allwright Plumbing to repair for us and that was when David Wright, a co owner of the business, turned up to see what was wrong with our plumbing. He quickly identified the problem and obtained the required part for the repair and after the job was completed, everything was left so very clean and tidy you would not have known any work had been done.  David is very easy to get along with and is very polite and friendly too and so is his brother Mark, who is the other half of the company, both of them really care about their customers and will do all they can to satisfy them, by making sure the job is always done and left, in a perfect condition, but that is what the customer wants, so that's what the customer gets, every time.

BH 05 17

Friendly service. Ensure they work in a tidy environment and clear up afterwards. Kept me informed of what they were doing and of parts they needed to order to complete the job.

MR 05 17

Job done well, thank you! A central heating pipework situation, which with my own DIY experience, I knew would be problematic. Job started as arranged, (early too), examined, considered, discussed as sensible possibilities with very useful advice which I gratefully accepted, then worked on and completed. Initially the draining and finally, filling & venting gave problems and were sorted out in an effective professional way. The work included a small change to the original expectations, to make future work easier. The cost was very reasonable, I will certainly use Allwright again, without hesitation.

AC 05 17

It was a challenging problem that another plumber refused to look at, but Allwright came up with a quick and effective solution. Their attitude was positive and supportive and I very strongly recommend them.

BE 04 17

We live in Cambridge and needed a plumber to sort out a constantly running overflow in my 94 year old mother in law's flat in Reading. Was made aware of Little Green Book by a friend who lives in Reading. Rang Allwright and arranged to travel down to meet them at the flat. Mark arrived on time and did an excellent job at a good price. We were impressed by Mark who explained all that he was doing , was great with mum in law and did a thoroughly clean and professional job. I would recommend without hesitation and would certainly use again. 

DE 03 17

Pleasant man who arrived on time, diagnosed the problem and came back next day with the parts and fixed it. Excellent service.

GB 03 17

Used Allwright Plumbing & Drainage for the first time today for a central heating service and was extremely pleased with the service received. David arrived on time and was friendly, tidy and knowledgeable. Will be using again and would highly recommend.

JH 02 17

David & Mark always arrive at the appointed time. They bring dust sheets and have done a great job of installing a replacement shower. Very pleasant guys and I can find nothing to complain about.

AW 02 17

We can't speak highly enough of David and Mark who came to our rescue when we had been without heating for several days in the recent cold spell. They identified the problem in next to no time and went on to fix it, keeping us informed throughout on what they were doing and why. They took great care over the work, laid dust sheets throughout the house to ensure that everywhere was kept clean and were extremely friendly and polite, a real pleasure to deal with. Look no further if you need competent, honest and friendly plumbers.

MS 02 17

I got David and Mark to come over and replace two new radiators and refit and existing that was leaking. They took the time to make it a job done well, they were very thorough. I asked them to do a service on the boiler for me. I now have hot radiators and a boiler that does not bang anymore BRILLIANT They are polite and easy to get on with.

JB 01 17

I've been using Allwright Plumbing for many years now and have always found them helpful, friendly and trustworthy. They have always solved any plumbing issues I've had quickly and with the minimum fuss.

DR 01 17

The Wright Brothers are spot on. Job done. Everything explained. Both very nice chaps. Used them for three years.

JN 01 17

David and Mark have undertaken several plumbing jobs for me over the years - the last being this week to resolve a problem with a boiler. They have always completed the job efficiently and with a good understanding of the problem. They are trustworthy and I can thoroughly recommend them. A great service.

KH 01 17

Have used them a couple of times and found them to be very friendly and professional.....very happy with the work they have carried out for me and will continue to use them in the future. Highly recommend them!

JW 01 17

I've used Dave and Mark 3 times now. Fantastic service, polite, courteous and always explain exactly what work has been done. Even when things are non-standard (as with our upstairs loo flush system) they have the knowledge and expertise to find and implement a solution. Would thoroughly recommend.

CS 01 17

First time that we have used this company and jumped straight in with a boiler replacement. No hidden costs from their original quote and both David and Mark were a pleasure to deal with. 

BH 01 17

David and Mark have been my salvation.I have had immense central heating problems. I struggled to find companies to come out to me including the company that installed it. Not in the Little Green Book I hasten to add. l would highly recommend this duo for their perseverance to get things right. Nothing has been been too much trouble.

CI 01 17

Excellent service. David and Mark have done a range of jobs for us and we have been very pleased with their work.

PC 01 17

I had a list of plumbing issues including a stop cock leak and replacement of basin drain and tap and toilet cistern inlet. Each job was approached with care, consideration and thoroughness. Would happily use their services again. 

SD 12 16

We've just had a blocked drain gully cleared by Mark from Allwright. He was very quick to identify and fix the problem, explaining everything clearly along the way. I will keep their number to hand for the next time we need help!

LB 12 16

I used the above company to help me clear a blocked drain last weekend. The gentleman who called was charming, helpful and professional. He sorted out the problem in less than half an hour and his charges were very reasonable. I would strongly recommend his company.

HL 12 16

Total heating failure, called Allwright at 16:30 on a Friday. David arrived 08:30 the next day to respond to our emergency despite having a full days work planned. The fault was very obscure and involved painstaking checks in order to restore heating and water. David was very responsive, professional and kind. Totally recommend. 

DB 12 16

2 great guys. Turned up early and did a brilliant job. Explained what they had done. They located problem very quickly. They are now on our speed dial for any future problems.

AW 12 16

Sorted out the leak on the gland on our stop cock at our offices. Very prompt and excellent service, so we had the water supply back on very quickly. Would certainly recommend them.

FA 11 16

Considerate and flexible service, takes the time to explain things, efficient results, highly recommended.

NO 11 16

Used company for a central heating fault. Proved very responsive and helpful, would use them without question again.

CB 11 16

Our boiler broke down last week and we were left with no heating or hot water. Although he had been off sick for two days and had obviously not fully recovered, David Allwright came out first thing the next morning, identified the fault, went and got a new part and fixed the problem. He then apologised for how much it had cost! I think this is customer service beyond the call of duty!

JW 11 16

Always a brilliant, efficient and helpful service and fairly priced . I recommend Allwright to all my friends.

JH 11 16

My boiler broke down a week ago. Consequently, no HOT water /heating... unbelievably several plumbing / engineers declined after an assessment to even consider attempting to diagnose, repair or replace.  DAVE from Allwright Plumbing .. SORTED IT ...AMAZING ..... 

JS 11 16

My first experience dealing with this company was a very positive one. After detecting a faulty programmer, (AP) speedily acquired and fitted the unit and then proceeded to service the boiler and check that all functions were in good working order. During this testing, I was treated to an explanation as to how each process worked and this particularly impressed me. With such an efficient service and most friendly approach I would recommend this company to my friends.

AD 11 16

My hot water cylinder started leaking a week ago. I rang the central heating company that normally serviced my boiler. They do not deal with wet problems and gave me the name of a plumber that could handle such problems. This chap then referred me to another plumber as the job was to big for him. His mate referred me on again. On the fourth referral, I was given Allwright's telephone number. Mark came next day and we agreed a date for the work to start and a price. He also gave me a few advice and the visit was not charged. A few days later, the brothers turned up and they replaced my hot water cylinder. They also noticed a few problem from previous work undertaken by another plumber. Overall, it was an excellent experience and I was happy about the final bill. It is so difficult to get a reliable and trustworthy plumber.

EC 11 16

What a great service. They replied quickly to my panic text message and they had my heating going again by lunch time. Ten out of ten. I can't recommend them enough!

SG 11 16

Over the years we have used David and Mark for all sorts of problems. Each time they attend very quickly after the initial phone call and if they cannot fix it there and then, they will return soon after and rectify the problem. They are the most polite guys who have a very high standard of work. Every job is carried out in the most cost effective way and on completion they leave everything in a clean and tidy state. They are certainly Allwright but my suggestion would be to rename their company TheBest.

LI 10 16

I would highly recommend Allwright Plumbing . After being let down by another plumber I contacted Allwright Plumbing for a complicated boiler move during building work on my house. They turned up when they said they would and even worked over a weekend to make sure I had heating and hot water asap. They are friendly, professional and respectful of your home and extremely tidy! I can not recommend them enough and will using them for the rest of my plumbing work for my extension. 

SB 10 16

I would not hesitate to recommend Mark and Dave for any plumbing job. We had used them once before and were delighted that they were able to install a new kitchen mixer tap at fairly short notice. It was a pretty tricky job in a tight space, given the 'interesting' way the original tap had been plumbed in, and the addition of a water softener, but the brothers worked out how to do it, set to, and made a wonderful job of it, even sorting out a small leak at the same time. As an added bonus, they are hugely entertaining while they work. Reliable, efficient, clean and tidy - and they turn up when they say they will - what more could you want?

SM 10 16

Highly recommend these guys 10/10, the earliest call out by our main supplier was going to be two days away, after calling Allwright Plumbing Mark and Dave came to me within the hour. They checked all the key parts of the heating system and found the problem to be a blockage that had been building up over years, I assumed the pump had broken as it was making an unusual noise and was expecting the worst. After a couple of trips into my very small loft and with Mark and Dave discussing solutions they fixed, cleaned and repaired the blocked pipe, great communication, always letting me know what was happening and what they were doing. Very knowledgeable and competent plumbers.

MK 10 16

These two brothers are better than their name suggests. I have found them to be much more than all right; I have found them to be very good. As well as carrying out small repairs and boiler servicing for me over the last 8 years they have extended the radiator system into another room and changed the hot water tank. Their work is of a very high standard and they are very careful in protecting decoration and carpets and fittings. I would not hesitate in recommending them.

GH 10 16

We have used Allwright Plumbing and Drainage Ltd for some years now, having picked them originally from The Directory. They now regularly service our boiler and repaired it with the minimum of delay when there was a fault. They have also replaced taps for us. They are efficient, punctual and courteous and I would highly recommend them.

JW 10 16

I would highly recommend Allwright Plumbing & Drainage. Mark has fixed a problem with our water tank and David has serviced our boiler. They are both very friendly and efficient and carried out the work to a high standard.

HW 10 16

We have used this business several times in the past. They are very reliable and courteous and always arrive punctually. They assess the problem quickly and outline the fault so you are aware exactly what is involved. All work is carried out effectively and they leave everywhere clean and tidy. The charges are fair for the work done and favourable with other plumbing companies. We have recommended them to several other people who have been equally pleased with their work. They are the plumbers we go to first when something needs attention.

GO 09 16

You couldn't hope to find a more efficient plumbing duo. Dave and his brother Mark answered promptly my "emergency" call for a burst rising-main. They repaired this quickly and expertly without "destroying" the kitchen floor and units, explaining as they went along. They were both pleasant and courteous, and I will certainly recommend them to my own friends and use them in the future. 

GR 09 16

What I like about Allwright is that they turn up when they say they will. They finish the job efficiently and explain what they've done too. David has come round and sorted out my boiler and more recently my shower. He is always punctual and is a pleasure to deal with. 

SG 09 16

I have used Allwright Plumbing & Drainage Ltd on several occasions and have been impressed by their punctuality, tidiness and cleanliness throughout. They make sure everything is in good working order before they leave and, if there is a problem, they stay until it has been remedied. I would highly recommend them and have indeed done so to my friends when they have needed a plumber.

PD 09 16

Great service, came earlier than expected,which was great as we had a leak in the kitchen, fixed the problem, cleaned up, friendly, all at a good price. Finally feel we have found a plumber we can trust! Already getting a quote for other work that needs doing!

SL 09 16

Would recommend Allwright Plumbing & Drainage; turned up when they said they would and the work was carried out without any fuss.

JM 09 16

Simply the best. The brothers are excellent at their job and excellent at dealing with us customers. They have done a whole range of work for me, from fitting a new boiler to changing bath taps. They are my go to plumbers.

KB 08 16

Just to say I would like to recommend Allwrights Plumbing & Drainage Ltd to potential customers. They are efficient & thorough, reasonably priced and they also tidy up very well. I am very satisfied with their work, having used them a few times over the years.

WC 08 16

Highly recommended. Mark and David are very friendly and provided quality work at a good price. I've used Allwright Plumbing services in the past and will definitely do it again if needed. 

CB 07 16

We can not recommend David and Allwright Plumbing highly enough, they have always provided an outstanding service to us - David is extremely efficient, helpful and friendly and explains everything that has been done in detail and he is also VERY tidy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

LR 07 16

I had to have a new hot water cylinder fitted and my shower repaired, I called Allwright Plumbing, David and Mark completed the work, were informative, efficient and very likeable. Everything left clean and tidy. I would recommend them and use them again.

AK 07 16

A plumbing business run by two brothers. Very friendly efficient and responsive. Excellent service. Would recommend.

AS 06 16

Another successful visit from Allwright Plumbing today. Whenever we need them they arrive on time, discuss the options to fix the problem, carry out the work efficiently and leave the repair area clean and tidy. Always courteous and polite, they are our first call whenever we have a plumbing problem. 

AT 06 16

I had to call a plumber due to a leak in the loft. I called Allwright Plumbing & Drainage Ltd (Woodley) to do the work which is local to me. Mark and David arrived punctually and were very efficient, extremely informative and all in all very pleasant. Their work was clean and tidy and very satisfactory. I would recommend them to anybody who wants excellent all round service. 

RG 06 16

My sons gas central heating broke down and he tasked me with getting it repaired. I contacted David at Allwright who quickly diagnosed the fault and gave me a quotation. A few days later David and his brother Mark arrived early morning and worked until 7.30pm. They replaced blocked pipework, renewed a motorised valve and replaced the hot water cylinder which was full of lime scale. They kept me informed of progress during the day. They were clean and tidy and did a thoroughly professional job. I have no hesitation recommending them to your readers.

HR 12 15

We had a problem with our combi-boiler yesterday. I searched in the Reading Little Green Book for a Plumber. I was fortunate enough to phone David & Mark of "Allwright Plumbing & Drainage Limited". They talked me through the boiler fault on the phone and "hey presto", our boiler started working again; with hot water and central heating available again so quickly. I am extremely impressed with the service that I received from these guys over the phone yesterday; they are competent and very helpful. I'd be very happy to recommend them to others and I would contact them again if I ever have another plumbing, central heating problem....very impressed!

HS 12 15

Excellent service. New shower valve fitted, all options etc explained and prompt attention on urgent need of plumber. Very pleased with work and service.

CE 12 15

Dave, with Mark's assistance, tackled my kitchen & cloakroom requests with efficiency & a smile. Nothing was too much trouble & all was cleared away afterwards. No hesitation in using them again & very pleased with the results.

LR 10 14

Just had David and Mark put in a new boiler and give the house a virtual facelift.

A very pleasant, informative, scrupulous, pair if ever there was one.  Never once did they have to go back to fetch tools.

Ten out of ten.
