After having a nightmare time with another plumbing firm. We called Steve to come take a look at our boiler. He fitted us in super quick. Ordered us the part and even fitted it the same day for us so he could get our boiler back up and running for us. Great price. Great service would highly recommend.
Phenomenal! Sorted the problem we had quickly and serviced for an amazing price
Great service and have recommended to friends and family.
Called Steve out at short notice. Arrived on time. Diagnosed the fault. Quoted for repair and service on my Bosch boiler. Job done within two hours. Fair price and excellent service. Booked my next service in 2025. Good to find someone who does what he says he will do.
Steve has done a really professional job, really nice chap and very accommodating. Would definitely recommend him.
Had new gas pipes renewed, and a boiler serviced. Very pleased with his work and price. I would highly recommend him, and very reliable.
Well, what can I say about Steve and his work? only this! We had the pleasure of having Steve, the master plumber, work on both fitting our shower and repairing our kitchen, and we couldn't be happier with the results! Steve's professionalism, expertise, and attention to detail truly sets him apart. Very fairly priced to boot! From the moment he arrived, Steve impressed us with his punctuality and friendly demeanour. He took the time to thoroughly assess our needs and provided clear explanations of the necessary repairs and improvements. Throughout the entire process, Steve demonstrated exceptional skill and craftsmanship. His workmanship in both the shower install and kitchen repair was impeccable, leaving us with fixtures that not only function flawlessly but also enhance the overall aesthetics of our home. Moreover, Steve's dedication to ensuring our satisfaction was evident every step of the way. He went above and beyond to address any concerns we had and made sure everything was completed to perfection. In addition to his technical prowess, Steve's professionalism and respectful attitude made the entire experience stress-free and enjoyable. He treated our home with the utmost care and left the work areas immaculately clean upon completion. Thanks Steve!!!
Steve provided an excellent service from start to finish, we had a tricky bathroom leak which meant re-routing the pipes and Steve carried out the work quickly and to a high standard. The cost was also very reasonable, I would definitely recommend Steve and wouldn't hesitate to ask him to do any work in the future.
Steve installed a new 250 litre unvented cylinder, moved the original boiler and adapted all the pipework as part of our planned house modernisation. This resulted in mains pressure hot water and a huge improvement in our shower performance. We highly recommend Steve and will work with him again for annual servicing and also updating bathrooms. Thank you.
Steve did a great job for us replacing a radiator and kitchen tap and priced his work very fairly. Steve phoned beforehand to say he was running slightly late which we also appreciated. Highly recommended - a great guy to deal with.
Excellent work, friendly and knew what he was doing. Explained what he was going to be doing beforehand. Will definitely recommend and use again.
Steve was friendly, reliable, reasonably priced. Would recommend.
What a star!! Rang at 4.30pm and he came out same day on his way home to isolate a leaking radiator so we still had heating. Slotted us in within in his busy schedule to fit a new radiator a few days later. Very friendly, professional and reasonably priced, I would definitely recommend him and will not hesitate to call him if I need an emergency plumber. Thank you
Steve did a fantastic job, was extremely knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. Will certainly be using him going forward.
Super Steve strikes again. Just brilliant, cant say anymore!
Steve went above and beyond to help us with a few gas related issues, working tirelessly to get us up and running before Christmas and ensuring we weren't left without heating and hot water. He also fixed a gas leak, re-routing pipework which was neatly and professionally done. Steve is honest and reliable and we already have him lined up to carry out some plumbing work for us. We've recommended him to friends and really can't praise him, and his work enough. A genuinely nice guy who cares about doing a good job.
Great service from Steve as always, great prices and expert service from a someone you can trust!
Steve even found me cheaper items and did a really good neat professional job fitting a bathroom suite.
Fantastic prompt service. Responded quickly to all messages and calls. Replaced my boiler very professionally and very quickly so I wasn't left in the cold. Very fair with pricing. First class service, highly recommended!
Second job Steve has done for me and can not fault his work, very professional and highly recommend.
Came when carrying out work nearby and got heating working again. Arranged appointment for service and possible repair. He replaced valve and carried out full boiler service and checks. Excellent service and first rate guy, no relation but much talk about clan McDonald.
I cannot recommend Steve highly enough! He's prompt, thorough, clean and tidy, and fair. As well as doing the job at hand, he's always happy to give plenty of heating advice. Will always try Steve first!
We had a leaking bathroom toilet. Steve came out at short notice, diagnosed the problem and fixed it for a very fair price.
Steve was recommended to me by a work colleague a few years ago and I have used him ever since because he is reliable, friendly and fair priced so will continue to use Steve. Highly recommended.
A very professional, fast and efficient service. Steve is a very knowledgeable tradesman, his work is of a high standard and I will be happy to recommend him to friends/colleagues without reservation.
Having been let down by my usual gas engineer, I looked on Derbyshire trusted trader and found Steve. He came in 2 days after I rang him to service my boiler. I found him to be friendly and professional. The price was very fair. I will definitely be using him again.
Steve helped out in an emergency by repairing our boiler. Faultless service: professional, reliable, good communication, willing to put the extra effort in and all for a fair price where we could have been taken advantage of. Highly recommended and will use again.
Steve came out to help me at very short notice on a Saturday morning. He fixed the problem. Excellent service. Very professional and knowledgeable. Thank you.
Steve was really friendly and helpful. Got the job done very efficiently and also gave me some much appreciated advice about my boiler too! I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Steve was very patient in helping us to fix the problem, thanks for his persistence we will have a much warmer winter this year. He is professional and give us the assurance he's able to help. I would recommend Steve to any residents nearby.
Steve turned up at short notice, identified the cause of the leaks in our toilet and was quite quickly able to solve the problem with the minimum of mess. Steve was friendly and polite and we would not hesitate to use him again.
Steve McDonald serviced my boiler efficiently and quickly leaving no mess. Very good service.
Great service, friendly engineer, will definitely use again. Steve was very prompt and affordable. Highly recommend.
Steve provides a first class service. He responded straight away when we reported a leak and found the time to come round and repair it the same day. He was extremely helpful and friendly, provided advice and put right some earlier plumbing work which was faulty. He has also resealed our shower unit. Steve kept us informed at all times. He is highly professional, accommodating and an excellent craftsman. We will recommend him to our friends and will definitely be calling on him in the future.
Steve was recommended to us from our estate. We had a few quotes and he was by far the cheapest for combining jobs. Unfortunately, he had a problem fitting our hob due to missing parts which was not his fault. He booked in to come back and did not charge us extra which he would have been within his right to do. Very happy with the completed jobs and we will definitely use him again and recommend his services!
Steve fitted a hot water cylinder for me, found Steve to be very professional and thorough, I was kept informed throughout. I would happily recommend Steve.
Highly recommend Steve McDonald. He is reliable, efficient and very thorough in his work. I can't rate him high enough, he is a top class engineer, who has, outstanding, work ethics, he does not cut corners and will ensure, he's checked and maintained every part. I will definitely use him again, as it gives me peace of mind to know that he ensured my boiler was safe, clean, and working efficiently.
Friendly, honest and well mannered tradesman who genuinely wants to do a great job for his customers. I wouldn't go anywhere else for plumbing or heating issues and would highly recommend.
I have used Steve for a number of jobs, and he always provides an excellent service, explains the problem and the solution well and then just gets on and does it. I have recommended him to a number of friends and will continue to as good reliable plumber s are like gold dust.
Steve has just replaced our old boiler and very tired radiators. He has done a brilliant job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. We went for a Worcester boiler with the Drayton programmer and thermo valves, which allow you to control the heating room by room - A real step into the 21st century for us and has improved our way of living, as well as energy usage and bills! Also want to thank Chris - a friend of Steve and fellow plumber, who was a big help on the job. They both went above and beyond to make sure the job was completed on time and to a high standard. Trustworthy traders and will be my go to guys if I need any plumbing work in the future! Thank you.
Steve is very professional, knowledgeable and super friendly. We've used his services twice now and will happy book him in for any further works needed.
Excellent as always. I have Steve on speed dial as my tenants always seem to have issues. Doesn't keep you waiting- always on time. Even cleans up after himself.
Steve came out to fit our new en suite- His price was really good so we kept him on to do other things that needed doing, leaky taps, boiler service. Discounted gas fire ready for a new one etc. No job is too small or big. Very friendly service. We would highly recommend Steve.
Steve offers an incredible service, he'll make sure you get exactly what you need but will never overcharge or make you pay for something unnecessary. Always on time, keeps you thoroughly updated throughout the process and does a great job. Steve has installed our shower, replaced and rearranged our under sink plumbing and fixed various other issues. Would highly recommend.
Thank god for Steve-after having no heating throughout winter last year Steve tirelessly worked many days on our system to get to the bottom of it. Highly recommend. Thanks Steve.
Steve has done several jobs for us including boiler servicing however on moving to our new home we had several jobs to do whilst installing our new kitchen and did a great job working flexibly with our electrician and plasterer! Would definitely recommend.
I've known Steve for several years. In October 2022 he fitted me a new combi boiler and I have just arranged for him to service it. He is a genuinely honest, kind and very friendly person. I'm very wary of people in general, especially trades persons, but in Steve I had great faith before his work and was extremely happy afterwards.
Steve is very thorough and reliable, does good quality work at a fair price.
Called Steve as my soft close toilet seat wasn't closing softly! He called by and tightened and adjusted a couple of screws and hey presto it was working again. I live on my own, so don't have a man about the house. Will call on him if I need him again and will definitely recommend. Thank you Steve
Steve was professional, knowledgeable, tidy and very reasonably priced. Would use again and recommend.
Phoned Steve after an eviction on my rental property, he arrived within the hour and got us out of a mess we had water running down the exterior walls from the boiler. He did quite a few jobs for us whilst he was there, he is an amazing plumber and all round nice guy. Making suggestions on things to do that made things easier for us I would highly recommend him and he will be my new go to plumber.
It is so difficult these days to find a good tradesman, Steve is friendly, approachable and very competitive prices. He takes pride in his work and leaves the place tidy. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to family and friends.
I have used Steve many times for our plumbing and quite honestly I wouldn't use any one else he is reliable trustworthy and hardworking and charges a fair price without ripping you off like some do. Thanks again Steve for a great job and for coming out so quickly to mend our leak, we really do appreciate it.
Needed a radiator taking off and the system rebalanced. He fit me in around other work, great comms, great work, will use again.
Really nice, friendly tradesman who couldn't do enough to make sure he got things right. Quick turnaround and confident he's done a great job. Can't recommend highly enough. Nice to get an honest, reliable tradesman.
Steve was very polite and professional and arrived on time! The price was competitive and he did an excellent job. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Steve and will definitely call him again when I next need a plumber.
This week Steve fitted a boiler for my daughter. I was working on the house too .I could not rate him higher. First rate work. Proper precision. And mega clean and tidy. I work a lot on family homes, and ones I own. He is 100% quality. Thanks. Martin.
Top job, thank you! Steve came within an hour of calling him with our bathroom sink tap emergency; we have a toddler so needed to address the issue promptly. Steve kindly responded and fixed it for us without any hassle, providing a new tap and installing everything perfectly. Great customer service too, unlike some of the other companies I've rung around. Will definitely use him again and recommend Steve to our family and friends. Top job indeed!
Very quick response time and very professional from start to finish. Would not hesitate to use again.
Reliable and knowledgeable turns up at short notice diagnosed the problem in a short time and fixed the problem on the date and time quoted. Would use Steve again.
It is the second time we have used Steve following a recommendation by a friend. He has been quick to respond to our requests especially when we had a leak. He's a friendly, tidy worker who explains clearly what the options are and at a fair price. It's a relief to know who to contact in future for any plumbing issues and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Steve has helped me out on a number of occasions over the past few years, including a leaky bath, tap replacement, a leaky radiator, boiler servicing, and a broken shower. He is always very willing to help out, often at short-notice, and provides a friendly and efficient service, along with the most cost-effective solution to a problem. Very happy to recommend.
We found Steve on trusted traders and are so glad we did! He arrived promptly and diagnosed the problem quickly. After replacing the defective part we had hot water again! He's honest, reliable and charged a very fair fee for his work. We'll definitely keep his details and are happy to recommend him to anyone who needs a good plumber/heating engineer.
Steve was recommended by a friend, he is a kind, honest, down-to-earth plumber. He gave brilliant advice and various options to choose from without any pressure when he installed my new boiler and radiator valves which has since been hugely cost efficient, his work is very clean and precise. He has since fixed an issue with my toilet system which again was no hassle for him as he's always happy to help. Overall, Steve provides excellent service and I would highly recommend to anybody.
Came out at short notice. Sorted my problem and went above and beyond to help. I would not hesitate to use Steve again or recommend him to others. You will not be disappointed with his work or level of service given. He kept me updated of progress. Price was very reasonable and Steve a genuinely all round nice guy. Thanks for a great job and great service Steve and for going the extra mile to sort my problem out it was much appreciated.
Steve serviced my boiler and did a great job. He was very friendly and explained what he was doing and why. He answered my questions about the boiler and gave some good recommendations for future service dates. I will definitely use Steve again.
I would highly recommend Steve, he has done work for us on two occasions both of which were urgent and he came out super quickly. One issue was fairly complex but he found the problem and fixed it within a couple of days. His pricing is fair and transparent and I wouldn't hesitate to call him as/when needed in the future.
Great service, friendly engineer, would definitely use again.
Very prompt, reliable and affordable. Highly recommend.
Steve refurbished a Shower Cubicle in April and he has just completed a complete Bathroom Refurbishment. We are highly delighted with the work done on both refurbishments. We cannot speak highly enough of his work ethic and friendly manner. So conscientious, has always done a great job, if task in hand was not possible Steve will work to find a solution that he was happy with. Work was explained and updated with what was happening each day. Every where was always left tidy each day bathroom, garage and drive way swept where he had worked. Nothing was too much trouble. If anything plumbing related we certainly know who we will call. It was a pleasure to have Steve in our home. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone who requires a plumber.
Steve was recommended by a friend, he did not disappoint. Beautiful bathroom, despite all the hurdles my old house threw at him, Steve remained a real gentleman.
