New toilet

Resolved with a smile

“Thank you so much Lawrence, a prompt response after our initial call, a problem all resolved with a smile and some very good advice as well, Apologies for the Labrador apprentice!!!”

Excellent service

“I would also like to thank you for the excellent service you provided – life has been difficult for our family lately with my father’s recent hospitalisation and my mother’s dementia, so your understanding, prompt and efficient service was very much appreciated – we will not hesitate to use you again in the future and to recommend you to our family and friends. With grateful thanks”

New Bolier

” Hi Sarah, I hope all is well. I would like to thank Lawrence for the quick and accurate way the work was carried out, and will certainly recommend Christy Plumbing and Heating to anyone asking in the surrounding area.  I have to say the boiler has never been so quiet since it was installed in 2009, and we’ve all noted the hot water supply is much more stable, especially when using other appliances, while the shower is running. Thanks again for your prompt action, it is very much appreciated by all in the household.
