About me…

I live in a small village near Hungerford, west Berkshire nowadays, but I have many close links with Reading, Berkshire, including many customers in the area.

I have been in the building industry most of my life although I started off as mechanical and electrical engineer. I have four children who have all grown up and left home now.

I started my own plumbing business in my early 20s and have been self-employed continuously since then. In the late 1980s I set up a bathroom shop where we designed and fitted luxury bathrooms working out of a showroom in Chobham, Surrey. I sold my share of the business to my business partner after seven or eight years having learned I like working with my hands rather than running a larger business with several employees. 

I traded for many years in the same business (bathroom design and installation) as a sole trader designing and actually fitting the bathrooms myself before finding my knees were suffering from the physical work and the constant stair-climbing in particular. So I stopped fitting bathrooms and decided to specialise in central heating boiler repair and maintenance. 

I’ve been repairing and servicing gas boilers to the exclusion of everything else for 18 years now and it love this type of work, finding I have a natural talent for homing in on the reasons why a boiler (or anything else) doesn’t work. These days I specialise in the very well-made older boilers from the 80s, 90s and early 20s, the type of boiler younger engineers tend to condemn as needing replacement as too old to repair. Often not the case.
