This is the second time we have used Mark's services and as per his first visit we were not disappointed. we contacted him with a leak from an overflow on the outside of the property. After a quick look he was able to identify the problem, contacted us the same day with costings for the job and made the appointment for the work to be carried out. Two days later the problem had been resolved. All work carried out very professionally on time and at a very good price. his work area was left spotless as per first visit. I would recommend Mark's services without hesitation and if required would definitely use again.

I had been struggling with hot water pressure within my 1 bedroom flat. I contacted Mark by phone and explained the issues of power of shower and at the taps etc.
Mark was able to explain why water pressure was not very good on the hot taps and how to best fix the issue.
Mark then got prices for me for materials needed for an unvented cylinder and then arranged a date for work to completed.
Mark showed up very punctual to complete the work and it was all completed within one day! Changing the tank and changing the shower.

Mark was very clean while he works and lays a sheets/plastic down to protect the flooring which was excellent. He even took away the old tank for me also which again was a massive help! Once complete he showed me everything he had done and explained how to use the new system which was very simple.

Now showering is perfect with the higher pressure and also with the hot taps in bathroom and kitchen.

Thank you Mark!

Downstairs W.C. cistern repairs. Contacted Mark to have work carried out, he was happy to call round at a time that suited us and arrived when he said he would. He had a good look at the job and advised me of what was required to repair it. Once again he arranged a time to suite us and arrived on time. Completed the work quickly and very professionally, protection put down and area left spotless on completion. Checked everything before leaving and explained the repair process carried out. Would definitely use again and recommend his services without hesitation.

Mark replaced our boiler and flushed out all radiators plus repositioning the valves for better flow and more efficient heating. He came when he said he would and worked until the job was complete.We are very happy with his work and service and we’re very pleased with a very reasonable price. We would certainly recommend Mark and happy to use him again.

From initial conversation Mark gave me good and reliable advice. I trusted his opinion and he guided me through the process.

There were a few problems with the wiring and plumbing in the house and Mark and his team fixed them without a question.

I would highly recommend MVW plumbing and will definitely use them again.

Mark @ MVW upgraded my central Heating system ~5yrs ago, and when I needed the same done again in another property, I included them in the tender process. Email/SMS communications where prompt as were arrangements for site visits. Marks quote was detailed and competitive, and options given clear and concise.

I chose Mark to carryout the work, based on knowledge of the previous job he had done, and also that he was the most comprehensive in the information he provided.

The job was the replacement of an existing System boiler that was 20yrs old with an up to date model. He took just over a full day to install, and the following day was used to cleanup, test and repair the external brickwork that was moved as the flue had to be re-positioned. In addition, he replaced an existing faulty radiator valve free of charge.

Prompt, clean, responsive and reliable, I highly recommend using Mark @ MVW plumbing whenever you have the need for a heating Engineer/Plumber in the future."

Mark replaced old non condensing boiler with new combi boiler and hive system, removed redundant pipe work and back boiler, repositioned pipe work for forthcoming new kitchen, and emptied stagnant water from redundant cold water tank in attic. It was clear from the outset that he understood the remit straight away, and quoted a very competitive and fair price. The workmanship was done to a high standard, and although some of the tasks were demanding given the condition of the property Mark never appeared to get flustered and resolved all issues. Have absolutely no hesitations in contacting Mark in the future to service boiler, and for bathroom/wc renovations. Credit to his profession.

Mark is the best plumber we've ever had. His attention to detail and professionalism is outstanding and he always responds quickly to enquiries and visits promptly even when he's very busy. He goes the extra mile in researching and recommending affordable products where required and is always cheerful and accommodating. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Mark did several jobs for us: he fixed a long-term problem with the toilet's connection to the outflow pipe, he replaced the piping in the bathroom sink (misfitted by another plumber, long ago) and he replaced the taps in the bathroom and kitchen. All jobs were completed in one day despite the toilet in particular being quite tricky (it had an earlier plumber stumped).

Mark communicated with us very clearly from the start, with a detailed quote allowing for a couple of different options. He was very friendly and pleasant, arrived when he said he would, and he used a facemask while in the house (without us asking), which was appreciated. After the job was completed, we noticed a leak which may have been related to the new taps, and when we mentioned this to Mark he came back immediately (first thing the next morning) and sorted it out, no further charge.

I'd definitely recommend his services.

Review Comments
My CH system needed a clean. Mark had advised me to avoid using a powerflush system because having microbore, it could lead to blocked pipes and a very expensive fix. So Mark instead we had to remove each radiator and flush it out with water. Good job too as most ran black for tens of minutes.
He then gave the system a final chemical clean and drain before filling and adding corrosion inhibitor and then checking for leaks after re-pressurising the system.

It was a full day to do over a dozen rads but Mark worked really hard.

I can now look forward to winter knowing I have a clean system which will help reduce my gas bill, give my boiler a longer life and give me a nice warm house.

Mark replaced a water tank in our flat, and I was very pleased and reassured by his professionalism from start to finish (ie initial assessment, quote, descriptions and explanations of procedures, etc).

He also repaired my bathroom sink taps, and again, went over everything very clearly for us.

I'm planning work on my kitchen and bathroom and will definitely be asking Mark to do it if he's available!

I have had two showers replaced recently by MVW Plumbing and Heating Services. I cannot recommend Mark highly enough. He is very reliable. His time keeping is impeccable and the work carried out was of a very high standard. I’d never heard of Mark until I did an internet search, but now I wouldn’t choose anyone else but Mark to do any plumbing and heating repairs I may need in the future.

After having tried 5 other plumbers of this trusted trader scheme I can only state Mark is the most reliable plumber I have ever met! This is my experience.
He not only came exactly on the dot when he promised and suggested the time he also was most helpful. He worked most efficiently and he even came on his birthday when his help was needed! Who would have done that?
I can full-heartedly recommend him to everyone. Thanks Mark!

Having previously used MVW Plumbing and Heating to install a new central heating system we were keen to use him to install a new bathroom for us. Once again he did an excellent job, was punctual, tidy and professional. We would happily use him again and have recommended him to a number of friends and neighbours.

Mark has done plumbing work for us 3 times now. We have known Mark for around 16 years, and trust him explicitly. Moreover, he is always pleasant, professional and punctual. Mark is tidy, he uses dust sheets so there is never any mess made. We have always been delighted with any CH & plumbing work carried out by him.

Mark McBride of MVW Plumbing & Heating Services was recommended to us by a tradesman. He was v thorough in checking safety compliance of existing gas fires thus giving us confidence in proceeding with a new gas boiler. This was cleverly installed in an unused part of roof place behind the bathroom. His advice & recommendations were key to the job’s success. Also he organised a roofer to assist with the flue plus an electrician for boiler controls.

His specification fully meets our requirements and allows for future extension of a radiator circuit. Being an old building there were difficulties which were all solved. During installation he always left us with facilities minimising disruption and tidied up well afterwards. Some months later he returned to make sure the new system was functioning properly. Generally he’s good at explaining everything and is most professional & trustworthy - so we have no hesitation in recommending MVW.

I had the pleasure to hire him and I would do it again. We had to replace our backboiler for a combiboiler and Mark was brilliant, quick, effective and tidy. He really knows what he's doing at all times. I would really recommend him!
