I would like to say a big thank you to Dan, Clive, the lovely ladies that work in the office and all the supporting professionals that helped to make our bathroom look amazing. I am still walking in there and cannot actually believe that this is my bathroom. They were all so professional making sure that we were happy every step off the way, and nothing was too much trouble. I cannot praise this company high enough and if you are thinking of having a bathroom fitted or know someone that is then please look no further and use these guys. Not only did I end up with a fantastic bathroom at the end of the re-fit, we were also left with a hamper with lots of bathroom accessories in it, such a lovely touch. A great big Thank You, once again for all your hard work and commitment, it is very much appreciated. Happy customers!

We have just had a complete new Gas central heating system installed by Clive and (young) Dan and we are over the moon with the results. I applaud their hard work, communication and professional work. Each day they left the house as they found it, which was a tall order considering the amount of work that needed to be completed!! The house was turned upside down with minimal disruption, I continued to work at home throughout the 6 days. 110% recommended Clive and his team

Allen & Clarke have been a joy to work with from start to finish on the complete overhaul of our plumbing and heating system. They have done a fantastic job and we’re delighted with the result. The communication is always friendly, the engineers were punctual, they were mindful of social distancing, worked tirelessly and went above and beyond what was required. Highly recommended!
