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.

Combi boiler replaced: The company arrived as planned and put down plastic coatings and dust sheets from front door to kitchen.  I left them to  it as had to go to work.  On my return the job was finished and the kitchen was as I left it.  Very neat and tidy and respectful company.

Replace Worcester Bosch for new one.  Same make: Workmanship was fantastic.  Floor protection, didn't stop for T breaks.  Pleasant, courteous.  Easy to talk to and explained everything - clean & tidy.  Even hoovered by Henry, so no complaints.  Price compared to other installers was so much cheaper and guarantee is 8 years.
