Excellent tradesman

Philippe is not cheap, but he did an excellent job - he was quick, tidy, timely, professional and fixed everything that needed fixing. A reliable and knowledgeable plumber, I will certainly use him again and can highly recommend him.

Prompt, reliable and pleasant professional.

Philippe fixed our hot water cylinder and switched the old timer for a modern digital control panel; he also replaced our old Consumer Unit and fitted three German electric radiators in our 1980s bungalow which we are modernising. Highly knowledgeable and very well organised, we welcomed and trusted Philippe's recommendations. We were happy for Philippe to have a key to our home and he was most respectful to our house and lifestyle. Tidied up carefully afterwards. Always clear about work needing to be done. Managed our expectations from start to finish of job - worth every penny! We will be inviting Philippe to work with us again.

  • I started the company in 2002 and in the beginning I worked mainly in Brixham and after more than 13 years of recommendations from my customers I now cover all the Torbay area plus Totnes, Dartmouth and Newton abbot.

    I cover all aspects of plumbing, heating and electrical work and I am registered with both Gas Safe Register and NICEIC.

    There are many aspects of my work that I enjoy, the fact that it is customer based and every person has a different requirement that I have to find the answer to. I enjoy the technical skills that I have to employ every day. One simple fact is there is a beginning, a middle and then the end product - I have a sense of accomplishment and the customer has a finished job.

    My customers really appreciate straight talking with no technical jargon and more importantly that I listen to their needs and offer different solutions.

    After my expertise in heating, plumbing and electrical work the fact that I respect my customer's home i.e. not leaving any mess after my work is what they appreciate the most.

    I really find it important to arrive on time or to phone my customers if I am late.

    I work on a trust basis with my customers.

    My father-in-law always says " Value is not what you pay but what you remember ". In other words, my standard of work is remembered long after I have finished the job.
