The Small Job Plumber

After a decade's worth of experience in plumbing and bathroom fitting, I feel that I have identified a need for a particular type of tradesman. One who is versatile, capable of venturing into 'other' trades if necessary and available at short notice for all those awkward jobs. I am that man.

About The Small Job Plumber

After ten years in the offshore oil industry where I learnt much of my engineering/construction principles, I turned to plumbing as a way of making my living onshore whilst I could watch my young family grow.

I quickly gained my NVQ Level III in Plumbing whilst also working as a tiler and plasterer, which were skills I developed as necessary to embark on my work as, principally, a bathroom fitter. I have completed hundreds of bathroom conversions, from tiny understairs cloakrooms to luxury wet rooms as well as adapted bathrooms for the disabled, the elderly and for those of reduced mobility.

Whilst these conversions have been the mainstay of my business for many years, I have also completed numerous central heating systems, kitchen installations, boiler replacements and repairs as well as converting and decorating adjoining rooms as part of a wider remit.

During my time performing these, sometimes considerable projects, I have found that there is a need for a somewhat more flexible approach that I have often, due to my commitments, been unable to fulfil. However, I have now scaled back my bathroom installations in order to fill this gap.

So, consequently I now offer a 'Small Job' service with a plumbing bias, since that is my speciality. The moving of a basin or toilet in the bathroom; replacing a bath with a shower ; re-arranging of a kitchen to accommodate the moving of a sink; replacing of a solid floor, either, wood, laminate or tiles; tiling a splashback; erecting stud walls in order to create another room; fitting of an outside tap; re-routing existing pipework to allow other work to be completed; the fitting of blinds or curtain rails; assembly of flat-packed furniture; making good after other trades; decorating. In fact, anything that others are too busy or unwilling to do.
