Customer reviews for this trader
A few days before Christmas we experienced a leak, which appeared to be coming from the cold water tank located in our roof space. It was a bad time of the year to call out a plumber at short notice, but we rang Chris to see if he could help. We were lucky because Chris and Dave were in a position to respond very quickly and they soon arrived at our house. They quickly identified the problem and rectified it in a very efficient manner, for which we were extremely grateful, particularly with this problem occurring as we approached a very busy time of the year.It was the first time Chris and Dave had done any work for us and we were very impressed with their friendly and professional manner. We will certainly use Chris and Dave's excellent services again and would strongly recommend them.
Would strongly recommend Chris to anyone looking for an honest and professional plumber.
Contacted Chris with a plumbing issue. He was here within 1 hour and the job completed 45 minutes after. 1 other job we weren't charged for. Very happy with the service provided, we will be using Chris again.
The Thornton's are always our first call for plumbing and have been so for at least 15 years. Always on time and do a good job at a good price.
Excellent. Came when he said he would. Highly recommend.
Excellent job, very satisfied.
Chris is a very Trusted person who was efficient and cleaned up afterwards. I would recommend to anyone, great job.
Chris and Dave are a good team and undertake and complete the work to a very good standard I would recommend this firm without hesitation.
Excellent service and workmanship. Very friendly and considerate and helpful.
Prompt, clean workers, kept me informed. Worked efficiently and quickly to get my boiler back up and running. Good service.
These guys were brilliant. Very fast and very neat and tidy job. I was very happy with the service I received.
Chris always does a good job at a fair price. He will always come out for an emergency and responds quickly. I have used him for several years and have always been impressed by standard of work.
The work was carried out quickly and cleanly. We were consulted throughout the whole process.
We had several small plumbing jobs that needed doing - Chris and his son had done some work for us last year and we were very pleased with it so we contacted them again. All the jobs were completed to our satisfaction - they went to the trouble of finding genuine replacement parts for our bathroom taps rather than just using anything that would fit. Would definitely recommend them.
I phoned Chris at around 4.30 on Tuesday afternoon as my water pipes were making a horrendous noise. Despite the fact that he had finished work for the day, he made a special trip to see us to try and work out what the problem could be. He managed to find out the cause and gave us a temporary fix until he could arrange for new parts to be sourced and fitted. He came back on Friday and within 20-30 minutes had changed the part that was causing the problem and we've had no problems since. Excellent service and great price too.
There was water running down our kitchen walls but the original installer of the shower refused to help so we rang Chris who found the leak and repaired it. He returned several days later to finish the job when everything had dried out.
Chris and his son answered my call at very short notice. Identified the problem and arranged for new fitting ASAP. Polite, clean and tidy workers, much better than many in Derby. Would highly recommend Chris Thornton to anyone.
Chris and the gas engineer arrived at the arranged time. Very friendly, but very efficient. Price paid was as expected. Very satisfied, would definitely use again.
I required a new shower unit in my bathroom and was given a recommendation by a friend. I chose this plumbing service which were excellent in carrying out the job with an attractive and up to date shower system. I would highly recommend this company.
Helpful and efficient as on previous visit.
Dave Thornton of Chris Thornton Plumbing Ltd offered me a fast emergency call out which I declined due to my not wanting to disturb the jobs he currently had on and mine not being a major emergency due to warm winter weather. We agreed a mutual appointment within 48 hrs of my calling him. He found the problem and affected a good repair to an aged boiler. Had no problems since.
Old boiler condemned. Replaced with a new boiler in days changing their work rota's to fit us in. Not leaving us in the cold. Did a wonderful job. No mess, cleaned up, very friendly and efficient. Felt safe true Trusted Trader would recommend.
No problems, excellent team. We went to the Trusted Trader website because we wanted a reliable, professional service and they lived up to the standard we expected.
Service was very prompt, courteous and fair price for a good service.
Very efficient and friendly, prompt attention. Fair pricing.
Great advice, on time, tidy and someone I would fully recommend and use again.
Very professional, approachable and with an abundance of experience and technical expertise. When I first spoke to David on the telephone he listened with interest and enthusiasm and suggested possible faults and solutions as to why my central heating was not working. He came the next morning with his son to do the repairs and although the job turned out to be more involved than first thought, they stuck at it until it was completed. They completed all of the work with a can do attitude, nothing was too much trouble for them and they remained pleasant and polite at all times. Their high standards of professional practice and their down to earth approach are refreshing and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Fast, efficient and helpful - such a relief to have good professional help.
We have used Chris Thornton & his son David for ever 20 years. He is totally reliable, trustworthy & fair. He put us in a new central heating system back in 2007 while we were on holiday & we left the keys, out home was immaculate on return.
We have used Chris for 16 years and have always been completely satisfied with the work done and general level of service. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Polite, friendly and professional. Phoned ahead to advise of time of arrival. Left the kitchen clean. Excellent work, and would definitely recommend and use again.
Diagnosed 23rd June, installed 2/3 July. Really felt in capable, caring hands.
Totally satisfied, he attended within 20 minutes of my call - Thank you Chris Thornton Plumbing - all the best!
Great service, completely satisfied with service. Polite, fast, and gets the job done, would highly recommend.
Very friendly and helpful. The work was done quickly and efficiently and both problems are now fixed.
Very polite and friendly. Tidy workers.
Invariably helpful and can recommend him.
I have used this firm for many years and have always had good service and have been very satisfied.
I have been using Chris and Dave Thornton for my plumbing works for several years and would be pleased to recommend them to others.
Chris and his son came when they said they would. Worked well, no trouble and charged a fair price. Wash basin started to run slow again after a few days. They came next day and fixed it at no extra charge. Would use them again.
