Lui the Plumber
We engaged Lui to strip out our existing bathroom totally, (wall tiles, floor to ceiling, floor tiles, bath, etc) and replace with new throughout, through installing a corner shower as opposed to a bath.
From the outset Lui provided use with advice and options that we have not considered such as installing a thermostatic shower fitting, fed from the mains, as opposed to our original proposal for an electric shower. he also suggested a further tile type for a couple of flat surfaces within the room which contrasted well with the new wall and the floor tiles and added to the overall finish. The former suggestions had the added benefit of allowing us to have removed the water tank in the loft which created more space in that area.
Problems encountered during the job were dealt with quickly and efficiently. For example when the state of the walls were found to be somewhat worse than anticipated when the tiles started coming off, it necessitated complete removal of previous plaster work back to the original brickwork. This called for the room to be re-plastered and this was organised quickly by Lui to avoid undue delay.
We were sufficiently confident with, and trusting of Lui to provide him with a key to the house so that his access was not dependent upon us.
Lui stated the job as scheduled on 6 September and was with us for some 4 weeks – a wee bit longer than anticipated but this was due entirely to the state of the walls and the time required for the plaster to dry. His work was always clean and tidy and all spoil was removed from the house daily. Lui did the job to a very high standard.
I have no reservations in recommending Lui to undertake such work as he did for us.
