We had a boiler replaced. They turned up on time and the two plumbers were professional, hardworking, polite and tidied up after themselves. I thoroughly recommend James W Alexander and would definitely use them again.

James Alexander fitted a kitchen for me which involved : ripping out an old kitchen, installation of all appliances, units and even a tiled flooring. The work was carried out efficiently, completed earlier than I expected.
All the tradesmen involved were very respectful of the environment they were working in, leaving the property immaculate.Their professionalism instilled confidence in me that the job would be completed to a high standard.
James oversaw all the work, constantly on call to answer any queries. Nothing was too much trouble for him, even collecting heavy tiles for my new floor.
Working with a very hardworking, personable and pleasant group of people ensured the process of installing a new kitchen was stress free.

Jim and his team installed a Magnet kitchen. As well as carrying out works required which included joinery, plumbing, gas and electrical work, a new floor had to unexpectedly be fitted (due to displaced pipes). Jim contacted me to explain the reason for the additional works and and the work was carried out without affecting the end date.

The team were everything you could ask for; professional, friendly , reliable, prompt and tidy!

I will definitely go to back for any future works needed.

The staff are excellent, from Anne at reception to all the various men sorting out my plumbing problems over the years. Arriving on time, very polite, friendly and tidy. Problems always sorted out with a smile. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Jim's team installed our new kitchen so some of the spend figure is included in that, and some was for additional work (flooring, electrics etc.) My wife and I are delighted at the quality of the work carried out - good old-fashioned craftsmanship which you don't come across much nowadays. The joins on the new Minerva worktop were invisible after they'd finished! They also threw resources at it when the initial strip out and install took place, so disruption minimised. The photo doesn't do justice to the installation as we still have to complete the re-decoration, but I'd happily go back to James Alexander for our next home improvement.

All work was carried out to a high standard by helpful and friendly tradesmen.

Jim’s company was subcontracted by Magnet to fit our kitchen. We needed much more work to be carried out before, during and after the fitting. Jim and his team rose to the challenge and carried out all the works whilst he continually reassured us that everything would be fine. How right he was. All his workforce performed their numerous and varied tasks with professionalism and were a joy to have in our home. No matter what we asked of the Jim and his team, they would do it. We now have a kitchen that we are delighted with and it draws many admiring comments. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jim and his team, when he says it’ll be fine, it was!

My job involved replacing the kitchen tap and one of the bathroom taps. I phoned James W Alexander and was able to fix up an appointment for the following day. Ian came out and replaced both taps quickly and efficiently. He was friendly and polite and cleared away all rubbish caused by the installation work. I found that all staff that I had contact with were professional and helpful, and would certainly recommend the company.

Replacement of conventional gas boiler with new condensing boiler

First class service from start to finish. When our 22 year old boiler finally packed in, we had a visit the next day which confirmed that this was beyond repair and then the following day to survey and discuss options. We decided to go with the Worcester Bosch Greenstar condensing boiler (which is more efficient than conventional) and would come with 10 year guarantee. The workmen were very professional, clean, tidy, courteous at all times. Particularly pleasing was having this work completed before we headed off for a short holiday we had planned. Also how they managed to conceal the new condensate pipe. More than happy to recommend.

Complete refurbishment of bathroom

Every one of their people was diligent and attentive throughout. Quite apart from the quality of the workmanship, everyone was extremely pleasant to deal with, and when things didn't go exactly to plan, they showed great tenacity in resolving the issues.

Disconnect and remove existing combi boiler and supply and install new Worcester combi boiler: It was a pleasure to deal with this company.  From attending to give an estimate through to completion - they were courteous, tidy and considerate.
