Plumbing is a crucial part of your home and it’s important to ensure everything is working correctly and any issues are dealt with quickly. From the bath and shower, to the boiler system, plumbing is essential to the day to day running of your home.
Pipes bring fresh water into your home and take away waste from toilets and sinks, which mean they must remain separate to avoid contamination. That makes it essential to have a professional plumber take care of any problems.
Why would I need a plumber?
At one stage or another every homeowner will need professional plumbing services. Every now and then you could find a leaking tap or pipe that needs fixing, or your boiler could breakdown.
Reasons that you could need a plumber include:
Boilers are one of the most important appliances in our homes, providing heat and hot water throughout the year. Therefore, it’s essential that they’re well maintained and serviced at least once a year. With the boiler system there are many parts including the pipework, and any problem must be quickly dealt with to avoid inconvenience.
Tap and pipe leaks
It’s not uncommon to find a leak from your pipework or a tap. This can cause water to seep through the walls or floor, creating moisture and mould. If an issue isn’t dealt with quickly it can become extremely costly, sometimes resulting in hundreds of pounds to have walls and ceilings renovated.
Installation of new pipes
Plumbers don’t just deal with problems that arise, but also replace and install new pipework to your home’s needs. You may want a radiator or sink relocated, meaning the pipework will have to be extended or shortened and correctly installed.
General plumbing quotes
Finding a plumber isn’t easy and you need to hire someone you feel comfortable with and know is a reputable trade professional.

Energy Performance of Houses
Properties are given an energy rating dependent on exactly how efficient they are and ratings are shown in the information below. This ranges from A, by far the most energy efficient, to G, the least efficient. With a higher rating you're more likely to have less expensive energy bills as more heat will likely be retained in the home. You'll be able to increase your home's efficiency with insulation such as double glazing, loft lagging or wall cavity insulation.
