Another recommendation for Steve 07711 670651. Repaired the boiler quickly and efficiently and now we're warm and cosy again.

We have just used David O'Brien (07960 938621) to have our bathroom remodelled (including new shower, toilet, lighting etc) and can completely recommend him for both quality of work and excellence of service.

This is another Lou and I can also recommend David for fixing a v irritating 'hammering' in our bathroom. Good guy.

After finding a recommendation for plumber Steve Hibert (07711670651) on virtual norwood I would like to put my own recommendation in. He has been round today to my house to service the boiler and sort out the radiators and he has done a fantastic job. Great quality work, efficient and really good value for money. Not to mention he is a really nice guy, and was here on time! Which gives him a ton of brownie points as far as I am concerned!
I will happily use him again and as a local worksman would definitely recommend him. You cant go wrong.

I have to recommend Christian too.

My boiler recently packed in at my tenant's property and I had 2 engineers look at it, one of them claimed to have fixed it, levied his invoice and less than 24 hours later, there was no hot water, again. A second tried to convince me it was irreparable!

Thankfully I found Christian on this site, he came round that evening and fixed it for a reasonable rate. Would definitely recommend.

His number is 07859 063388.

After all the good reviews for Steve Hibert, I gave him a call to get a quote for a boiler service. After a few days of silence and no response to the messages I left on his mobile and landline, I couldn't be bothered any more.

Instead I've used http://www.plumbercrystalpalace.co.uk/ It's a website run by Service Team (0207 437 0236) and they sent round Ufuk from Riverside Plumbing and Heating, www.we-are-gas-safe.co.uk. As it was a service of the boiler that was required, rather than any kind of emergency, I expected to have to wait a week or so, but the job was done the next day. Ufuk arrived bang on time, did an excellent job and was very reasonably priced (80 plus VAT).

I can thoroughly recommend Steve Gore of SJ Building Maintenance of West Norwood (tel. 07979 621400). Steve has just completed installing an en suite shower/WC in a bedroom and refurbing our main bathroom. He is more than competent in plumbing, carpentry and general building work but uses a friendly electrician to do the specialist stuff. Steve is reliable and pleasant to deal with, always turns up on time and discusses any issues with you before going ahead. Even better, his price was very competitive and we are more than happy with the high standard of finish. Please do PM me if you need any more info.

Blocked Drain Problem - sorted!


Having recently moved I've had lots trades people that I found via VN carrying out work and I'm not sure if this is the best place to post another review but we had a problem with blocked drains and Don The Drain (as recommended by Carrie of [b][ name removed - previous issue ][/b] fame who also gets a massive thumbs up by me on this site) was brilliant. He came round on a Saturday morning, sorted the problem in a flash and gave us a few helpful tips for the new (well very old and rickety) house.

Howdy folks,

I have not read this whole thread so not sure if repeating what others have posted but...

I have to recommend Robert Glassbrook and his hilariously garrulous colleague Doug.

They did the plumbing for a bathroom install in my flat earlier this year and I promised to recommend them on here as others had to lead me to them.

Their work was spot on.

Robert Glassbrook: 07711201041



Does anyone know if Robert Glassbrook is still recommended ?  I'm looking for someone groovy to install a new shower unit.


Many thanks for any feedback! :)
