Latest Reviews and Feedback

We were left with no hot water when our boiler stopped working and we then discovered that the immersion heater wouldn't work either. I picked Mike almost at random as he was fairly local and am so pleased that I did. Although busy on another job, he came the next evening, explained what needed doing and installed a new immersion heater which has worked perfectly since. Based on this, I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Michael replaced the radiator valves, installed thermostatic valves upstairs and removed and flushed a radiator that was only half working. As part of this he had to drain and refill the system and eliminate some difficult to eliminate air blocks. All of the work was carried out very professionally and diligently and I would happily use MRK Plumbing again and recommend them. Michael was very persistent in ensuring that he fixed some difficult problems due to air blockages.

JI 03 24

Mike was very professional and replaced my kitchen tap quickly. He also fixed a leak in the cloakroom sink, going above and beyond to ensure I wouldn't have any further problems. This was really appreciated. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

AD 02 24

I feel sure you must have received many references for the father and son team of Michael & Tom Keeler. I am adding my praise for the excellent work the have done for me over the past year or so. Care and responsible approach to jobs they do me is their key.

DD 01 24

We have used Mike for his plumbing services several times before. This time he sorted a leaking kitchen sink waste quickly and effectively - Many thanks!

CS 01 24

Michael fixed a problematic toilet efficiently and swiftly. Always leaves your home spotless. Would definitely recommend.

EH 07 23

Michael successfully fixed our kitchen drain pipe fault, he came out at short notice and left everything clean and tidy. He has done several jobs for us over the years and we have been extremely pleased with his work.

SM 07 23

It’s easy to find tradespeople that do an okay job but to find one that consistently goes above and beyond is rare! Mike Keeller is that rare breed, he has been my plumber for 10 years and recently completed a major job at my house tracing a shower leak and replacing a rusted, calcified, leaking water tank. Mike worked diligently over a number of days to rectify the problems, leaving the area clean and tidy after completing the work. He really optimises the true meaning of customer service to get the job done in the quickest time possible and going beyond reasonable expectations to ensure this. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for a truly professional plumber.

AK 07 23

Michael Keeler has been doing various plumbing jobs for the last 10 years in my house. He is always keen to provide a great service and is very knowledgeable about difficult plumbing problems. Michael does not take any shortcuts and is only interested in doing a great job, never worried how long it will take him. His invoice is what he quotes and is always reasonable. I can recommend Michael, as he is courteous, friendly and leaves the workplace clean and tidy. Best thing is, he comes very quickly and fits in any job into his busy schedule!

GN 01 24

Michael did a great job replacing a kitchen tap, sorting out the trap under the sink, and replacing a ballcock in the loft. Very easy to get on with an high quality of work - won't hesitate to use him again!

AB 11 23

Mike Keeler has been helping me with my plumbing maintenance issues for many years now. His work is always to a high standard and he is always very organised and trustworthy to have around. I would highly recommend Mike, he works hard and is very knowledgeable of plumbing issues.

SC 09 23

I have just had this business fit out one of our bathrooms and both my wife and I consider the workman ship and the attention to detail to be 1st class. I have used the company before and they never fail to work to high standards. Michael is the plumber and will tackle most odd jobs and his son is a fully qualified electrician, The charges are also very reasonable. They should be highly recomended and problems can safely be left in their hands.

DD 09 23

Mike Keeler has been helping with my home plumbing issues for a few years now. He responds quickly and his prices are reasonable. . I would be happy to recommend him to anyone as he is reliable, friendly and trustworthy. He doesn’t mind taking on smaller jobs to help people and cares about customer satisfaction.

GW 08 23

All work carried out to a high standard. Michael also took time to identify the source of a leak in a bathroom and has given us ideas in how it can be fixed.

SM 07 23

I obtained Michael's name from the Little Green Book, which proved a worthwhile exercise. He was very thorough in finding the source of our problem and by taking a systematic approach he was able to resolve it. He went out of his way to complete the work for us on a Saturday morning, which had not been planned. He was very prompt and good with his communications and was easy to talk to, giving one confidence.

DN 07 23

Mike was determined to rectify a series of cold water problems that had resulted in loss of pressure. He was polite and detailed in his explanation of each course of action taken to solve the problem. We would highly recommend Mike.

BM 06 23

Michael has been amazing helping us with a nightmare leak which took some time to be detected! He’s been so good we are going to have him back to do all further plumbing jobs.

ES 06 23

We had a leaky bath tap. Michael came to the rescue on the same day, fixed our tap even though it wasn’t straightforward and came back a few days later to make good and also fix a couple of other bits that needed attention. I cannot recommend this business enough. Michael is thorough, knowledgeable, trustworthy and friendly!

MS 06 23

Michael has undertaken several jobs and has always provided an excellent and professional service. His most recent job regarding a poor cold water tap flow proved somewhat of a challenge but with patience and perseverance Michael resolved the problem. I would not hesitate to recommend Michael.

AJ 06 23

Just had another excellent central heating service from Michael Keeler of MRK Plumbing & Maintenance Services.

SL 05 23

Michael came out the same day as I called him, investigated the issue with our toilet, also noticed that are basin taps were stiff and then came back with a new ball valve and tap cartridges and fitted them. He also sorted out some really bad water stains in the bath while he was here! We have used MRK Plumbing services before and they are quick to respond, identify and solve the issue, very approachable and tidy. Would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

HS 04 23

Michael was fantastic and definitely would not hesitate to use his services again or recommend him to others. Our upstairs pipes were blocked leaving us without the use of our main bathroom and en-suite. The job ended up not to be a pleasant one but this did not phase Michael, I think other plumbers would have walked away. Michael is very polite and friendly, cleans up thoroughly and his prices are fair. Thank you Michael for saving our Xmas!

DP 01 23

Mike had done lots of work for us over the last 10 years, including two full bathrooms and countless repairs and adaptions. Everything has been done to an outstanding quality. You don't tell Mike what you want doing, you tell him what you want to achieve and he will know the best thing to do and you won't be disappointed.

MK 12 22

Michael Keeler provides an excellent and highly skilled service. We have used him on a number of occasions and we have never been disappointed.

AH 12 22

Mike Keeler has just completed renovation of our kitchen and utility room. He has done an excellent job and his attention to detail is second to none. He went out of his way to minimise the inconveniences associated with periodically having to turn off power and water. He is a clean and tidy worker and his van is stocked with a range of tools for addressing any arising problem.

JC 11 22

I highly recommend MRK Plumbing. I’ve been using them for years. They are responsive, flexible, totally trustworthy and reasonably priced.

AJ 10 22

It should have been a simple job replacing a ball cock. But the toilet in the ensuite was installed more that 25 years ago and built in, and the builder did not provide an access hatch. Mike did a fantastic job cutting open the pebble covered worktop, making the repair and then reinstating the work top. Thank you Mike.

MG 07 22

We called out Michael for an emergency involving a leaking mains water pipe underneath our floorboards. Somehow he managed to fit us in between other commitments and carried out the repair to a very high standard. He was careful and meticulous, cleared up after completing the job, even helped to re-lay the carpet. It was a relief to have the problem dealt with so quickly and competently. Special thanks to Kim too, for her pleasant and helpful manner in taking our phone call.

JC 07 22

I can recommend Mike to you as he always is fair with requirements of the job, the time it will take and the charges. He has done various jobs around the clinic and cottage and I would not use anyone else now.

JW 07 22

Mike Keeler has just completed my kitchen renovation and he has done an excellent job. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. His attention to detail, the professional finish and also his excellent advice has made the whole process easier and I am very pleased with the result.

BP 07 22

Excellent work, Michael was not phased by problems, always found a solution, and left everything clean and tidy.

LC 03 22

I fully recommend the excellent plumbing services offered by Mike Keeler. He has done many jobs for me over the years, from fitting a new ensuite, to replacing toilets, fitting washing machines pipes etc and replacing Kitchen worktops. He is an excellent very conscientious worker producing a quality job.

PM 03 22

Mike has done two jobs for us, replacing broken rollers on our shower door and resealing the frame then fitting a replacement cloakroom vanity cabinet and a new tap. He takes great pride in his work and provides a quality service at a very reasonable price. He is easy to work with and leaves the job clean and tidy. Highly recommended.

PH 11 21

We suffered a leak which had soaked an internal wall. Its source could have been in several places. A lot of careful work was needed to gain sufficient access to identify the problem, and the repair was complicated. He had to visit several suppliers on a Saturday to find the parts needed to repair it, and then a few more hours to complete the work. Mike did a great job, leaving everything neater than we could have hoped for, given the potential damage that we had anticipated, and for a reasonable price. We have used Mike for several small jobs previously, and would highly recommend him for any plumbing work.

MB 11 21

Michael has helped us out with plumbing services on several occasions. A couple of them were emergency situations with water leaks and Michael responded very rapidly on these occasions, which was much appreciated. I have found his work to be excellent and we appreciate his friendly and helpful approach.

PB 10 21

Mike has carried out a lot of work for us over the years, all to the highest quality and recently resolved a serious leak which was threatening to bring down our lounge ceiling. First, he stabilised the situation, then whilst investigating he found 2 leaks and fixed them both. Once fixed, he then made good everything including making a fantastic job of re-boarding the lounge ceiling ready for the plasterers. If you need a plumber, look no further! PS - His son Tom is an excellent electrician too!

TC 10 21

Excellent service from Michael. Emergency job with leak on the house side of stopcock. Michael was able to help and was very professional in his approach and the work that he completed. Will happily use Michael in future if we have other plumbing jobs and would strongly recommend his service to others.

JS 10 21

MRK Plumbing, I highly commend Michael for an excellent job, which was more complicated than first suggested. He was logical and patient and corrected the problem, all done in a friendly manner.

JB 07 21

Mike and Kim are brilliant. Really friendly, reliable and professional. They’ve completed a number of jobs for us, from simple to complex, and nothing is too much trouble. The standard of work is very high and competitively priced. It’s so reassuring to know that when we need a plumber, we’ve already found an absolute cracker!

AR 07 21

Mike installed a new acrylic bath panel to replace our existing cracked one. There were actually lots of challenges to overcome as the design was very different from the original and the space to manoeuvre was very tight. Mike's experience showed in his ability to foresee difficulties and devise solutions before acting. As the new panel was set back further Mike even neatened up our flooring trim so that it didn't stick out and look silly. He was also willing to do quick add-on jobs such as cutting the old panel in half for us and adjusting a kitchen cabinet door. Mike is friendly and professional and I recommend him most highly.

LB 06 21

We have used this service for more than 10 years, from small emergency jobs such as leaking toilets and taps to larger ones. Last month Michael completed a whole bathroom refit. Michael used his knowledge to offer further ideas to our design which resulted in a room that surpassed our expectations. He was meticulous in his detail; working efficiently and with minimal disruption, knowing that we were also having to work at home.

RB 05 21

We have used Mike on several occasions over the years, and recently asked him to help us refurbish our ensuite bathroom. From start to finish he did a very thorough job for us. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and his attention to detail is first class. He is a pleasure to have around, works incredibly hard, and the end result is outstanding. He also went the extra mile by helping us with work in the adjoining bedroom, and in sorting out some other minor plumbing jobs around the house. Would highly recommend.

AP 04 21

We really appreciated the professionalism and attention to detail with which Mike approached our bathroom renovation. To ensure our satisfaction he worked closely with us on the details of the design and layout. It was a pleasure to have him working in our home and we are thrilled with the result.

DH 03 21

I have to say that it has been a pleasure dealing with Mike and his business, from the moment I used the Little Green Book to find a plumber, to the rapid reaction to our needs (even though Christmas was only a couple of days away) and on to the efficient execution of the discovery and repair work that Mike carried out. We will happily be using MRK Plumbing again when needed.

TJ 12 20

Michael has done a number of jobs for me over the years and I have always been very happy with the quality of his work. He always arrives when he says he will, explains clearly what he is doing and leaves the place clean and tidy when he has finished. In my experience he is honest and trustworthy and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

MN 11 20

To be honest, the thought of having another plumber into our property of 30 years fills me with dread. We have had many problems with several plumbing cock-ups from a number of plumbers. (ceilings down, twice, walls re-plastered and flooring removed twice). However, Michael Keeler or "Super Plumb," as we now call him, new exactly what he was talking about and explained every detail of what he was going to do (repairing and replacing taps and fitting captive wastes and not to mention finding two more leaks!) His 35 years of experience certainly shows and we would highly recommend him to anyone needing a competent, reliable and professional plumber.

PL 11 20

Michael responded quickly to my call to repair a leaking tap. The work was efficiently and satisfactorily carried out and I would highly recommend.

AJ 10 20

We have had Mike as our plumber for a number of years and a number of jobs. His workmanship is of the highest standard, he leaves absolutely no trace of mess, and is a joy to have in the house. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

JC 10 20

Michael has done a couple of jobs for me now and would highly recommend him to anyone he even came out in the evening after work very considerate in helping his customers ASAP good work.

LB 10 20

I should like to highlight the exceptional work quality of my plumber Michael Keeler of MRK Plumbing and Maintenance Services of 143 Barkham Road WOKINGHAM Berkshire RG41 2RS. He is a superb plumber, very efficient and dedicated to satisfying the needs of his customers . I would not hesitate to recommend Michael's work.

PT 07 20

Repaired tap and cleaned out the U bend; fitted new shower unit and loo seat. If you need a plumber look no further – excellent old-school plumber.

JF 07 20

Called him on the morning of Good Friday, with a blockage problem. Turned up about mid-day, and all sorted my mid-afternoon. Very friendly, and obviously knows what he is doing. Would highly recommend.

AP 04 20

I first contacted MRK when I realised our shower replacement was a little more than a routine DIY task. When Michael called to see the job he was more than helpful. He was enthusiastic, offered some sound advice. Replacing our shower was a difficult task which required a number of skills and a lot of experience which Michael had. His work is very high standard and we were really pleased with the completed job. He always cleaned up after work and was respectful of our home whilst working here. I have no hesitation in recommending MRK and will be using his services hopefully again in the new year.

I have just had my kitchen and breakfast room renovated, this included new ceiling, plastering, new floor, new kitchen and a total rewire.Through a recommendation I used MRK Plumbing & Maintenance Services the owner Mike recommended Lambourn Property Services Ltd for the Electrical work. Both company's were excellent.The work is of a very high standard, finished on time and to quote. I have used many builder's over the years with varying degrees of success! This time I hit the jackpot, I cannot recommend them high enough, not only because of the high standard but also the helpfulness. I needed a fair amount of help with planning the lay out and general design of the kitchen both Mike and Electrician Sam were very patient and had good ideas.Tom the electrician under Sam's supervision did a grand job. Mike the builder has performed a miracle, the old kitchen was in a sorry state with wonky walls and ceiling joist so uneven they had to be replaced. He is a perfectionist. Tom and Sam replaced the main fuse board, put two sets of down lighters in the kitchen plus re-siting sockets and switches, adding extra sockets and switches.They also installed under cupboard lighting and cabinet lighting, two way switches and dimmer switches plus an outside security light. Everything is in the right place for me and all the fitting straight and level? I would like to add that having seen previous work carried out by Mike Keeler I felt confident enough to leave him to do the job whilst I went away for a month. I was not disappointed. 

GB 07 19

I have a beautiful ensuite bathroom thanks to Michael who was recommended to me by my daughter. He's very knowledgeable and at the planning stage he recommended a different size/shape shower cubicle to the one I was going to have and I'm pleased I took notice of him because it's definitely made the room more aesthetically pleasing. He also replaced two radiators and laid the new flooring. The finished product looks terrific and I am very impressed with his attention to detail and the fact that he puts down lots of dust sheets and tidies up as he works.

JN 05 19

Over the years we've used Michael for everything from general plumbing issues such as replacing a water softener, outside tap and kitchen sink to three complete bathroom refurbishments which included floor and wall tiling. He has a good knowledge of all products available, comes up with good ideas at the bathroom planning stage and completes all work to a very high standard leaving his work area clean and tidy at the end of each day. He's a pleasure to have in our home.

JH 05 19

NC 12 18

Michael has just completed a bathroom makeover which was far from straightforward. The end result is amazing, thanks to his attention to detail. This is not the first time Michael has worked for us, he is a real craftsman with many years of experience and I would highly recommend him.

CR 08 18

Michael has just refitted our ensuite to a very high standard. This included extending a wall to enlarge the space, and renewing all the plaster board on every wall. He replaced the floorboards and refitted new flooring. The ceiling and the walls were then replastered to a very high standard by his colleague. Walls were all tiled and new shower, toilet etc were fitted. Michael is a perfectionist, he does a job as if it's his own home. They made sure everywhere was cleaned and tidy before they left every evening. Michael is someone that you can trust explicitly. Michael and his colleague are polite, courteous and have good personalities. We are so pleased for what they have done to our ensuite, we cannot thank them enough. Very highly recommended.

DM 07 18

Mike has done a great job re-fitting our downstairs cloakroom and sorting out our extractor fans and piping in both our bathrooms. He had good advice and ideas at the planning stage and working with his regular supplier enabled us to borrow samples to check out our choices. We did have to wait for him to fit us in but I can honestly say it was worth it. The work has been finished to a high standard and he is one of the tidiest tradesmen we have used. He also ensured everything was put away and cleaned where possible at the end of each working day. At the end of the job all debris and old materials were taken away. We would be happy to use him again and recommend him to other people.

CP 07 18

Micheal Keeler - I had an emergency last night and after trying a few other plumbers, was able get him to sort my problem out within 2 hours. He was very efficient and did a very good job.

Mark followed up on a call regarding a problem with our toilet, looked at and resolved within an hour. Clean and tidy work would happily recommend.

RT 12 17

Mike seems very experienced and will happily try to solve anything that is not straight forward so you can have what you want. An example of this is that we now have a fabulous power shower where I thought we could only have electric due to piping/pressure etc.

JC 06 17

Michael is someone who really knows his job and is full of all sorts of useful tips about things in the house in general. Skilled at his job, helpful, clean, tidy and pleasant to have around. We're very pleased with all the varied work he did

DW 12 16

Excellent service at a reasonable cost. Michael responded to our urgent need for help within the hour and did a first class job. Highly recommended.

JR 11 16

Good plumbers seem very difficult to find and after 3 we contacted didn't even bother to ring back we decided to try the Green Book. We chose Michael due to the good reviews he had had and it was an inspired choice. He sorted out two toilets and replaced a radiator on his first visit and we were so pleased with his work that we had him back to treat, drain down, re dose and refill the heating system which is now working efficiently again. In our experience he is prompt, arrives when he says he will, does a thorough job without taking any shortcuts and works as cleanly as if he were in his own house. We would thoroughly recommend him.

AT 11 16

We have used Mike over the last 10 years after finding him in the Little Green Book when we moved into this house. He has renewed our bathroom, kitchen and just recently our en-suite, all the work is completed to a very high standard and Mike has a very good attention to detail, he wants everything to be perfect as if it was his own house. He has also helped us out on other plumbing problems as and when they have arisen such as new pumps leaking showers and burst pipes, We are very pleased with all the work he has done for us. 

RH 05 16

I wanted to find an honest, experienced and skilled local plumber and that is what I got. Michael answered my call late on Friday and came to fix our tricky little leak early on Saturday morning. It was by no means a straightforward job, but Michael tackled each challenge with calm assurance and left me in no doubt of his abilities. His advice was sound, I was happy with the work and the charge was reasonable.

SR 04 16

Michael was very open and honest about a number of plumbing issues we had. The quality of the work he carried out for us was outstanding. He went over and above what we expecting of him, but stuck to his original quote. One job he suggested we could do ourselves, which he advised us on while he was with us, saving us money. Would highly recommend, and will certainly use in the future. Thanks Michael.

AP 04 16

Michael Keeler has organised and carried out the complete rebuild of our ensuite shower and toilet, including the moving of the wall by nine inches to expand the space, levelling and strengthening of the floor prior to fully tiling the room. He has arranged for all electrics to be updated from a qualified electrician and has supplied an excellent plasterer to re plaster the adjoining bedroom, remove artex and re-plaster and paint. At all times the dust and debris have been removed daily. He has worked on it and coordinated all our other requirements, all those working have shown care and consideration as well as provided an excellent standard of work. I recommend them for every bit of the work they have done for us. It has been a pleasure to receive such a high level of skilled work from Michael and his colleagues.

PM 03 16

Michael replaced some radiators and valves. He came out very quickly to estimate and the work was carried out in a short space of time. The final bill was exactly as estimated and everywhere was left neat and tidy. I would be happy to recommend his services and happy to call on him again in the future.
 

FC 11 15

Michael spent two days with us replacing bath and shower panels, installing a new extractor fan and making good several unfinished DIY jobs. His work was of the highest quality, he managed to provide us with solutions to difficult problems that other tradesmen had swerved and he maintained a clean work area throughout. His final invoice was exactly what he had quoted us, despite completing a few extra jobs along the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Michael for bathroom, kitchen and general maintenance projects.

NH 09 15

Came on a Saturday afternoon, very efficient.  Explained everything that needed to be done.  Nice chap to have in your home.
