Planning a kitchen refit or an extension can often require additional plumbing and pipework. Planning your pipework can save a lot of trouble and additional cost. Where do you want appliances that need a water supply? Where will your waste water go?
Note: Plumbing should be installed before any wallpaper, fixtures or cabinets are installed. This makes it easier to make changes during the planning and in the earlier stages of installation. Know your water pressure – some kitchen taps and washing machines need a minimum pressure to work so bear this in mind before purchasing.
Our extensive kitchen appliance installation experience means we can fit anything from a new sink, water filtration system, waste disposal units, dishwasher or washing machine.

One problem that homeowners often neglect to have fixed is a leak at the base of a toilet. The leak often appears small or insignificant, but over time the water ingress can rot the subfloor and/or the finished floor. The same can be applied to a leak on a kitchen sink or a wash hand basin. It is always recommended that a qualified plumber check out any issue as someone unaware of the damage this kind of problem can create, may try to seal this themselves, sometimes making it worse. It is always cheaper to repair the leak early on rather than having to replace floorboards or kitchen cabinets/work surfaces.
EMERGENCY CALL OUT
Burst and Leaking pipes need to be dealt with straight away, as they can lead to structural and electrical damage to your home or property. If you have a plumbing emergency where water is coming through a ceiling or bursting from a pipe:
- DO Turn off the water at the main shutoff valve (stopcock) – the main valve can usually be found near the water meter or under the sink.
- DO turn electric off at the source – the main fuse box. If you are unable to access the fuse box, call your power provider and request that they turn off the electricity until the leak is resolved.
- DO Catch the water. Placing a bucket to catch the leaking water can limit the amount of water damage.
- DO NOT try to fix or turn on any light fixture if water is present. Call a qualified electrician once the leak has been dealt with.
- DO NOT ignore a leaking pipe. The leak often appears small or insignificant, but over time the water ingress can rot the floor/surface around it giving you an expensive job to replace.
