Living in London has its advantages, the choice, the variety – but how do you go about finding a plumber in London? Someone local and reputable?
Plumbing problems around the home can strike at any time. From burst pipes to dripping taps, knowing what to do in the event of an emergency can be the difference between a problem solved and a DIY disaster.
Below are a few tried and tested ways to find someone in your area who’s reliable, trustworthy and good at their job. Finding a plumber in London is all about a little research.
For centuries this method of passing on good (and bad) news related to trades people has been effective. Today people are finding a plumber in London on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, because it’s easy to reach out to the wider community. People you trust always provide the best source of information and if you’re looking to employ a tried and tested plumber in your local area then word of mouth is always the best way forward.
Of course, if none of your Facebook friends or Twitter followers know of a local plumbing firm then there are endless lists of companies offering plumbing services in the directories and online. Picking someone who is best for your job is the next challenge, and the answer is on the testimonials page, showing reviews from satisfied customers. Forums and message boards also show you who’s saying what about whom. Often a good plumber will be a name that comes up more than once when you add it to a search engine, so don’t be afraid to ask around online before you invite them into your home for real.
Although it can be tempting to dive in to the first plumber in the phone directory or the friend of a colleague at work, the best advice is always to shop around. Finding a plumber in London who is efficient and value for money depends on getting a few estimates first. Understanding the average price a job should actually cost also helps, so it certainly pays to shop around when it comes to finding an affordable and reliable plumber. Also, remember that this professional person is going to be coming into your home so make sure you feel comfortable with their attitude and their character before you welcome them through your door.
Finally, always ask to see a professional guarantee that a plumber is who they say they are and that they are expertly trained. This is a sure fire way of knowing that you’re finding a plumber in London who has a good reputation and is recognised for carrying out work to industry standards.

Finding a plumber in London is easy when you know how!
Really pleased with the service from the arranging the work to the guy being at my house, had a Toilet installation and Water Tank Repair completed in one afternoon. Engineer was polite and friendly, got on with the work and explained what work would be done. Definitely be using the team at Home-Cure Again.
Polite, clean and helpful engineer who took the time to explain the fault with my boiler. Very good service. I have made an appointment for them to come back to fix a dripping tap in my bathroom.
I woke up to no heating or hot water...in winter! The boiler had no pressure and was showing an error code. I Googled local plumbers and came across Homecure Plumbers website. I called them and made an appointment for that day. The engineer came round and found the issue. I was given a quote which I accepted and he went about fixing the issue. The engineer was polite, informative and efficient. I went from a stressful situation to having no hot water and heating back on within a couple of hours. Will definitely be using Homecure again in the future.
