Kitchen fit quote

A question about : Kitchen fit quote

Can any kitchen fitters let me know if this price is fair.

I'll be ripping out the old units myself.

Fitting 16 units, including wall units and a double oven housing.

3x3m laminate work tops fitted

Install gas hob

Connect electric oven

Plumbing of sink, dishwasher and washing machine

Quoted Ј1500 inc vat

Seems reasonable to me.

Boiler quotes

A question about : Boiler quotes

Finally got some quotes for a replacement boiler, with two different options.

Option 1 is for Worcester 30cdi system boiler with Worcester 250l unvented hot water tank. This would replace my conventional boiler and installation of the new tank in the loft. Pipework will be relatively easy as the loft is directly above the rom the boiler will be in. Cost, fully installed, is Ј2771.60 for the boiler and Ј2226 for the tank.

Option 2 is for a storage combi, Gloworm ultracom 2 35kw, price fully installed Ј2612.

Replacing a ceramic cartridge on a manual shower?

A question about : Replacing a ceramic cartridge on a manual shower?

Got a slight drip on a mixer shower just below the lever/handle. It's a Marflow Consort C72


I can take the cap off to see that there is a slight leak from the cartridge.

How much should something like this cost to get replaced by a plumber? Thanks

New boiler quote

A question about : New boiler quote

Hi all,

I've been given a quote of Ј3500 for the installation of a new combi boiler - a Viessman 35kw. This will involve moving the position of the boiler, new pipework, and decommissioning of an old water tank and boiler, as well as powerflusing and new thermostat etc.

Still, this seems very high to me - what do you think?
