Service provided was new bathroom and a onsuite shower. Including a new central heating and boiler installed. Very pleased about the works done. It was my first time to and Joe was always polite and patient with my decisions as it wasn't as planned as his usual work is. Overall i would recommend this company to anyone.

We needed a new LPG boiler to replace our old oil boiler and had had two quotes, one from an ex colleague which was horrendously expensive and one from a local guy of whom we had no experience, that quote was reasonable and affordable. We then talked to some friends and mentioned we were looking at replacing the boiler and they recommended Dean Gas. We contacted James and he came straight out to look at the job. We were immediately impressed with how professional and knowledgeable he was. He promised to come back with a quote promptly and we received it within 3 days, that also impressed us as many of the firms we had contacted could not be bothered to even talk to us! Having studied the two quotes we decided that we had the most confidence in Dean Gas. It was slightly more expensive than the other one but James, as an accredited Worcester Bosch installer, could offer an 8 year warranty! He also found an innovative method on installing the flue which reduced the cost. They arrived on Monday and worked like Trojans! By Wednesday lunchtime the job was finished. Every day they cleaned up after themselves and took all the rubbish away. They were absolutely marvellous. Needless to say we were delighted and have no hesitation in recommending them, we will have them back to service it on a regular basis.

My enquiry was dealt with extremely quickly and conveniently and I was kept informed throughout. The job was done efficiently and the cost was reasonable. I was very pleased overall and will continue to use this plumbing service.

In July 2014 Geoff Thompson and his son Sam replaced our 10 year old Worcester Bosch boiler with a new Vaillant boiler. They are Accredited Installers of both makes. They provided a competitive fixed price quote. It took two days and they were on time, efficient, professional, personable and left us clean and tidy. One couldn't ask for anything more.

Extremely knowledgeable, conscientious & professional service. Really cared about the quality of the work carried out. Really nice people. I learned an awful lot about central heating systems. Would recommend them without hesitation. Not just for a central heating power flush but for all plumbing related work.

I contacted Stephen to repair a fault on a combi boiler and test and certify the gas installation on a house that I rent out. I'd previously been let down by another company and definitely didn't want to use one of the national companies, so when a friend recommended Stephen I gave him a call. Stephen arrived early and as a tradesman myself I could immediately tell that he was at ease with fault-finding. He worked quickly, tidily and methodically to diagnose and repair the fault. The boiler was working perfectly by the time he left. His work included the boiler service and repair, the flue gas test, a chemical flush and the Gas Safe certificate, all completed in a timely and professional manner. I found his price very reasonable too. I'll have no hesitation in using Stephen's services again and cannot recommend him highly enough.

Had my gas boiler serviced, came within 24 hours, charged average cost, worked for an hour and was clean and tidy. Well pleased and checked my gas fire as well.

Lee turned up on time to provide us with a quote for having our boiler replaced and five new radiators fitted. His quote was the lowest of four that we received and he started work the next Saturday. Lee and his colleagues were polite and easy to have in the house. They cleaned up after themselves when leaving and completed most of the work in a day. We offered to pay Lee at the end of the first day but he refused to take the full amount until he'd finished. We had a problem with the boiler the day after it was fitted (a fault with the boiler, not with his work) - he called the manufacturer straight away and came to meet them at the house to fix the problem first thing the next day. He really went over and above for us and even offered to come back and take the radiators off the walls for us in a few weeks when we plaster the walls, free of charge. Overall the service was quick, friendly, great value and I will definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

Excellent service, very knowledgeable, quick, efficient, tidy and reasonably priced. Matt caries out service and repair, rather than pushing for replacement. Also gives recommendations based on current regulations but doesn't push to upgrade if the installation still meets the regs in force at the time of installation. Not only that, he's very good with exuberant puppies!

It's nearly impossible to find an Aga Rayburn Engineer in London... and even more difficult to find someone to service their Irish cousin a Stanley Brandon. We called Staunch and Flow on the off chance they may know of somebody. They had no experience of Stanley products but agreed to undertake the service. Mary Clare was helpful and efficient, even sending an email the night before the appointment to remind me to turn the Stanley off (so that it was cool enough for the engineer to work on). The engineer turned up on time, was smart, polite and undertook a very thorough service. He diagnosed a fault and helped us find a workaround until the new part arrives. Staunch and Flow are efficient and thorough - almost the exact opposite of most other plumbers we have used. They are not the cheapest, but you do get what you pay for.
