We recently had a bathroom fitted by a a company called Cheshire Plumbing Services from Runcorn Liverpool. I say a company but they are basically 2 guys. The list of faults is endless and despite numerous phone calls and many promises to return they still have not. So far we have a leaking shower, toilet moving around, shower fittings loose, sink pug not working, bath taps loose to name but a few faults. My question is can anybody recommend a good relaiable fitter that we can use to correct all of the deficiencies ? Also, can I have suggestions as to how we get some money back from these guys. I really fear for the people who will have bathrooms fitted by them
It's very sad, when a member of the public employs someone and they can't even do the job right, it's not difficult to do a good quality job - with no leaks - most small company's rely on word of mouth, I wonder what they'll do for business in a few years time, unless they trade under a new company name.
If they're trading - report them to trading standards with photo's of the defects. I'm not sure if trading standard would come out to witness the workmanship.
Are you any good at DIY ? as most of things you need putting right, can be done by a capable DIYer. Otherwise I would just ask around neighbours for decent local plumber that they'd recommend.
If it's really shoddy work - I would look into taking them to a Small Claims court. I don't think it costs much, it all depends on how much you paid them, how much you'd get back and how much it is for the court costs - you have to decide whether it's worth persuing.
Many thanks for the advice. We live in Liverpool. We have a friend of friend coming over this weekend to take a look so we'll see what he says. I would try and do it myself I am just a bit worried about getting the glass back into the shower unit. I understand this is difficult to do? Also, when you put the shower base onto the platform is there anything else I could use to bed it instead of sand and cement or is that the best material
