Why choose us?
I used Jason this week to replace a shower, sort out a leak in our bathroom and replace a toilet cistern. I have to say that he first came round the week before and quoted for the work and at this point I found him to be on time and polite, he sent me the quote within a matter of hours and we went ahead with the work. I arrived home from work to find the work completed within the timescales and there was not a sign of mess anywhere which is unusual these days when you have tradesman in, trust me I know. Jason also had to undertaken a little extra work on one of the issues and again didnt charge anymore and only told me when he had completed it. I would not have any issues recomending JAS Plumbing and we will be having him back to replace our downstairs and upstairs bathrooms as soon as we can.
