Feedback for ST SHAW & SON LTD

Not happy with work done . Condensate pipe frozen for 5 days so no heating for 5 days. No heating for 3 days in feb 2010 and 6 days in dec 2010, called office and 7 days latter still not received a response. spoke to worcester bosch who advised of correct install techniques so this pipe should have been lagged. 2) Plastic pipe used for central heating was on view inside property and looks like a bodge.Leaks on joins of plastic pipe like a yellow stain looks like a bodge.
4) New radiators fitted weren't level and look a mess.
5) New Rad werent up to required output for bathroom size
6)Wesley fitted roof boiler flue, but hole in membrane is very messy and water is leaking in around flue into loft.
7) floor boards were cut and were refitted very poorly. ie no suport around holes cut. so floorboards are now unsafe.
8) the soil pipe fitted didnt have any roding points ( so will have to be redone to satisfy building control ), the face of one brick was totally blown off, and other holes made werent sealed allowing damp and water into building.

I could expect this standard of work from a diy bodger but not from a corgi registered plumber. The job was a total bodge, the term slap dash give me the cash come to mind.I have asked corgi to check the installation.
I ddint realise how poor the quality of their workmanship was until we started having problems with the heating. At 4K THIS WORKMASHIP IS VERY POOR.
