Latest Reviews and Feedback
Cannot speak highly enough about the manner in which Ollie Howe responded to an urgent request I had with a leaking pipe and to which our Home Insurers had spent two days telling me that wasn't covered by them in my policy! Having located and contacted Ollie, and being fortunate that he had a spare moment in a busy workload, he came around within a short time, identified the extent of the problem very quickly and then set about making the repair. The workmanship was excellent and carried out within a very reasonable price - and moreover we had a proper supply of water again. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in using Ollie's services again and am pleased to give him this reference.
We contacted Oliver Howe of "Howes Heating and Plumbing" to repair a leaking pipe which had developed under the carpet and floor boards on the first floor landing.
He had to drain down the heating system before being able to repair the damaged pipework.
He also removed an old air separator in the airing cupboard and replaced this with a new tower air separator whilst also moving it higher up in the airing cupboard for better effect.
He finally re-filled the heating system with corrosion inhibitor and tested it to ensure it was working properly.
We found Oliver to be a professional, reliable, punctual and very pleasant person to do business with and would certainly use him again should the need arise.
He was extremely helpful giving me advice even before he arrived to investigate my water leak. He was prompt, polite, and clearly someone with high standards. He identified and sorted my problem quickly and at reasonable cost.
I can heartily recommend Ollie Howe. He has helped me on two occasions. Both times he responded very quickly to find the problem. He is a very pleasant young man and very professional.
1: A water leak in the ceiling of a wardrobe was traced to a leaking joint on the water tank in the loft. Ollie then ordered a new tank and installed it. All very neat and good value.
2: My insurance company’s home rescue service does not include “trace and access”. Ollie came round the same morning to expose a leaking mains joint above the kitchen ceiling. He also found us a plasterer to repair the damage after it was fixed.
Oliver installed a new china sink and draining board together with a tap for me. This involved removing the old china sink (a difficult job) together with making sure that the new sink fitted perfectly.
His approach was professional at all times whilst being friendly and helpful, I would and have recommended him to friends and confirm he will be a worthy addition to The Little Green Book.
I would also add this is my first port of call for all of the work I need to be done.
We were recommended to use Oliver Howe by close friends. We needed a problematical downstairs toilet removed and fully replaced with new vanity unit, basin, toilet and part tiling to walls. Despite several delays in obtaining match tiles, which was down to us, Oliver worked around the issues and with great expertise and tenacity, finished the job in the minimum of time, removing all previous toilet ware from site. His work was clean and efficient and the finished job was excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending Oliver to others.
Ollie fitted a new toilet and taps to my bathroom sink. Ollie sourced the toilet and taps to meet my needs and arrived promptly on the time he said he would. He is very tidy when working, putting sheets down on my hallway carpets and clearing up any mess caused. I was very happy with all the work Ollie did and can not fault him in anyway. Ollie is very polite and friendly, and has checked in with me to make sure there were no issues after the work was complete. I would definitely recommend Ollie.
Oliver, of Howes Heating installed a new radiator, replaced another and balanced our central heating system. The system has not been fully functional for many years but now works a treat. Oliver was professional, timely and knowledgable-providing expertise and sound advice. Oliver was punctual and his work was tidy. Communication via the phone and email was always responded to promptly. His charges were highly competitive and he stuck to his original quotes. I would recommend Oliver for central heating jobs.
I work with recommendations as far as possible. I gave him a call about my issue and he quoted well and promptly and came and completed the job, after asking many questions and researching for me. However, while we were waiting for the part, I had a further more serious issue (nothing to do with Ollie), which required even more work.
Again, his integrity and honesty were refreshing. When the replacement parts came in, he did the job as he stated, for the price he stated and was very efficient. He texted each time to say when he was coming and that's when he came.
My original issue was to replace the flush mechanism in my cloakroom toilet and to replace a plunge plug in cloakroom sink. While we waited for the flush mechanism to be ordered, because he said he liked to replace like with like, my rather adventurous Bengal, smashed the cistern lid. We thought it was a simple case of replacing, however, Ollie discovered the the toilets were Dutch, after research and discussing with his suppliers and couldn't be replaced, not even when I emailed Holland myself. That left the toilet to be replaced. Because of the shape of the room and doors etc, it could only be within certain parameters, again, Ollie did the research and I agreed a particular one. The price, including soft close lid was wonderful.
I can honestly say he is worth his weight in gold and have already recommended him to friends, one of whom is looking to have quite a bit of work done.
He works hard and well, full of integrity and leaves everything clean, comes when he says and his quotes are completely open and no hidden extras.
I will most definitely use him for any of my plumbing challenges.
