About Us

We install quality bathrooms from start to finish, with all the bits in between taken care of.

We provide advice and guidance during a free site survey, and we have a blog with lots of articles that cover frequently asked questions and show you examples of our recent work.

We install bathrooms from start to finish, supplying all the necessary trades and project managing the whole process, so you don’t have to! We normally supply & fit bathroom suites but in this example we fitted a customer-supplied suite.

We work to detailed, itemized estimates with fixed costs, so you can budget properly without fear of unexpected skyrocketing prices.

Our focus is on doing a proper job for a fair price in a reasonable time – see here for more info or contact me for a quote.

Combining A Toilet & Bathroom Into One (Case Study)

Prior to work beginning, a free site survey was carried out where I discussed the customers’ needs.

I looked at the existing plumbing & drainage facilities which would affect the layout & positioning of the new suite and worked with the customer & my local bathroom supplier to produce a scheme that suited the customers’ tastes, and budget.

Plans were drawn up, costs, schedules and payment terms were agreed and then work began….

The tiles were stripped back, and the walls were then reboarded prior to tiling.

As well as the rest of the walls and the floor.
