Feedback / Testimonials
Sheila Bell, Falkirk said on 11/02/2021:
Just getting around to recommending Franco and Alan for providing first class workmanship. Have used their services over the years and have been really pleased with the service they provide. Our latest contact was on Christmas Eve, when Franco, despite officially being on holiday, came out to attend to a dripping radiator! Thanks again!
David Bell, Larbert said on 18/01/2021:
Had a problem with our central heating boiler continually losing pressure over past few months so called on Franco of PF Plumbing, Heating & Gas Services to hopefully resolve issue. Despite being extremely busy Franco came out at short notice where he considered options which would either confirm boiler fault or prove leak into pipework or radiators? Although we will possibly have to renew combi boiler in time Franco did manage to repair our system without any coercion for us to replace prematurely. Great service from a true gent, much appreciated.
Mrs Ross, Larbert said on 08/01/2021:
Outstanding service from Franco after our boiler broke down just after New Year’s. Initially we had gone with another company who left us without heating in freezing conditions for 5 days. Not only did Franco make time to come first thing the next morning, he managed to get our heating back up and running within a couple of hours. Top service from someone who really knows what he is doing and who cares about the work. I’m very grateful and would highly recommend him to everyone.
Lynn Hunter, Grangemouth said on 04/01/2021:
Outstanding service from Franco when a boiler broke down in one of my rentals just before Christmas. After frantically calling round various Trusty gas engineers, Franco called me back. Despite being flat out busy he made time to call in and check the boiler. He identified the problem and returned first thing next morning with the part. Another problem cropped up while he was there but he resolved it there and then. Top service from a top engineer. I’m very grateful. Thank you Franco.
Lynn Hunter, Grangemouth said on 28/11/2020:
Huge thanks to Franco for stepping up to an emergency boiler breakdown at one of my tenancies. Despite being flat out busy he made time to call in and identify the fault yesterday. He returned with required parts this morning and it’s back up and running again. I’ve used Franco several times over the last 12 years and he has huge knowledge and experience. I’ve no hesitation in recommending Franco. 10/10 all day long.
Wallace Grieve, Larbert said on 18/10/2020:
Leaving our boiler in care of a major service provider came back to bite us when our heating system failed due to lack of proper care. With our son being in the vulnerable category recovering chemotherapy we were in dire need of hot water and heating. Franco from PF Heating immediately responded to our call and set us up temporarily with hot water until he could schedule in the install of the new boiler and tank. Where the major service provider washed their hands of our situation showing no empathy Franco completed the works in a 10 day turnaround despite having a heavy work schedule. Franco was extremely knowledgeable and his work was of a highly professional standard with care to the property during works which included covering the carpets and tidying behind him. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for anyone needing works done.
Jim Saunders, Falkirk said on 12/10/2020:
Franco and Alan, recently carried out a storage tank and HW cylinder replacement, together with a complex reconfiguration of the pipework, pump, motorised valves, sludge filter and renewed all the associated electrics. everything was done with the minimum of disruption, and the quality of the workmanship is second to none.
Verified Customer, Larbert said on 03/09/2020:
New boiler and hot water tank installed. Knowledgable, fairly priced, clean and tidy, very hard working all through the day. Wouldn’t hesitate to contact Franco for work again.
Iain Finlayson, Falkirk said on 18/08/2020:
Franco fitted a combi oil boiler and main boost pump for us, his work is of the highest standard. He was punctual, tidy and easy to communicate with and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him and using his services in the future.
Tam Muirhead, Falkirk said on 20/05/2020:
Have just had my central heating system serviced and Nest control system installed by Franco. He arrived on time and completed the service / installation to an extremely high standard. Having used this company on many occasions I would say they are one, if not the best in the area.
John Bannaghan, Wallacestone said on 19/05/2020:
I noticed my combi boiler was leaking water and found the number for PF Plumbing Heating And Gas Services Ltd on Trustys. I called and Franco provided advice over the phone and arrived very quickly and fixed the issue and also serviced the boiler as requested. Franco also provided advice on a few other questions I had. Overall an excellent job and cost less than expected. I would highly recommend Franco and I will definitely be using him again in the future.
Karen, Grangemouth said on 19/03/2020:
Excellent service. Very responsive, arrives on time, fair price and excellent workmanship. Would highly recommend and will use again.
Stewart Ross, Bo’ness said on 16/03/2020:
We had three quotes for a new heating system. Franco’s quote wasn’t the cheapest but wasn’t the most expensive either. We were impressed with Franco’s knowledge and accepted his quote. We are more than happy with the installation and have no hesitation in recommending him and his colleague Alan. The work was done to a very high standard and we were kept informed at all times as to when we would have water and heating and it was all relatively painless despite it being winter. Very tidy workmen too.
Mrs Stuart, Falkirk said on 20/02/2020:
My parents boiler had stopped working and they had no heating or hot water. When I contacted Franco he made an appointment as soon as he could. They opted for a new boiler and Franco explained in great detail what he would do and sent the quotation very quickly. He managed to re-arrange his diary to install their new boiler (a huge Thank You to his other customer for changing their date). He kept my parents informed and myself at every stage of the process. He started at 8am exactly when he said he would and was extremely tidy. His work was outstanding and my parents will definitely be calling him next year to carry out their service, in fact I will also be getting him in to service our boiler. I highly recommend PF Plumbing, Heating & Gas Services. Thank You!
Kevin Lawless, Grangemouth said on 04/01/2020:
My boiler broke down on New Year’s Day!!! Sent Franco an e-mail as it was the holidays, but he responded very quickly the same day and arranged a time to come out and see what the issue was. Arrived on time as agreed and the problem was rectified within 30 minutes. Great service and very friendly. Will recommend P.F. plumbing to all my family/friends, thank you Franco.
William, Falkirk said on 17/11/2019:
Franco supplied and fitted a Nest system to combi boiler to replace unreliable thermostat that was there. Franco has also installed and serviced combi boiler for our son. Great workmanship and friendly service. Thanks.
Jamie Dickson, Grangemouth said on 07/10/2019:
New boiler fitted in May by Franco and Alan. Arrived on time, very friendly and tidy. Larger gas pipe fitted which involved new carpet being lifted to work under floor. All work completed to very high standard. Would happily recommend P F Plumbing. Great job.
Liz Monro, Rumford said on 11/09/2019:
Franco came out to price supplying and fitting a new boiler for us, we were very impressed by both his knowledge and his quote – which came through quickly via email and was very competitively priced. He then sent email confirmation of our appointment booking to have the boiler fitted, and on the day, arrived at 8 am as arranged. Throughout his work, he advised us what he was doing/ the stage he was at…when water would be on/off etc. When the job was finished, Franco cleaned up and removed all the debris – you’d never have known he was there, except for our shiny new boiler! More than happy to recommend Franco for his excellent work standards and experience…will be in touch next year for our boiler service – thanks again!
Stephanie Moyes, Larbert said on 09/09/2019:
Professional, knowledgeable, tidy, high-quality finish.
Barry Hamilton, Falkirk said on 31/07/2019:
Franco installed a new boiler and changed hot water tank from a vented to an un-vented system. He also fixed the plumbing for a radiator that had been incorrectly installed. I was very impressed with Franco’s knowledge and workmanship. He kept us informed about what he was doing and why. The neatness of the pipework afterwards was much improved in comparison to what it was before. I would happily recommend him to my friends and family.
Ann McGregor, Bonnybridge said on 17/07/2019:
Called PF Plumbing after discovering a leak in my boiler. Franco arrived at the time he said he would, assessed the job and explained the work required. Franco carried out the work efficiently and professionally, leaving the boiler area clean and tidy and the repair done to a very high standard. He took great care in ensuring everything was running as normal before leaving. Great job! I’m delighted with the repair and will continue using Franco for all my gas repairs and services.
Gregor Paterson, Stirling said on 10/07/2019:
What I expect from someone I am paying to carry out work in my home is for them to treat my home and myself with respect and courtesy. Franco ticked those boxes from the first day he came to my house to provide me with a quote for moving my boiler from our kitchen to our garage. He was punctual, efficient, tidy and friendly. It was a pleasure doing business with him. His quote was also very competitive.
Jeanette Johnston, Falkirk said on 05/07/2019:
Excellent service and workmanship. I could not praise Franco high enough. He was exceptionally tidy and meticulous at all times. I am delighted with my new boiler, hot water tank and system. If anyone has any questions to ask, Franco is patient at all times and explains things in ways you understand. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a first-class system done by a first class tradesman.
Richard B, Midlothian said on 01/07/219:
Courteous, reliable, efficient and tidy, with excellent workmanship. Out of several companies approached PF Plumbing was one of the few to quote for our complex larger job. The Installation was precise and well considered. Although not the cheapest PF plumbing are undoubtedly the best plumbers/ heating engineers I have ever come across. Franco, assisted by his colleague Alan, is very personable and helpful. He did a great job installing our heating system and always left the house clean and tidy. He is extremely diligent and produced an excellent result which is a testament to his knowledge and enthusiasm.
Alastair Young, Falkirk said on 25/6/2019:
Recently had a new boiler and hot water tank installed and all work was completed to an excellent standard. Franco kept us up to date with how job was progressing and both he and his colleague Alan worked efficiently and professionally through to completion. Their attention to detail was also impressive and all work areas were left very clean and tidy. This is in fact the second significant gas/boiler job Franco has completed for us. In a previous house our boiler literally ground to a halt and, of the two other engineers who came to inspect the problem, he was the only one who was able to repair. With this proven knowledge and reliability, Franco is our 1st choice for any gas/boiler/heating works in future!
Tom Penman, Larbert said on 20/05/2019:
An excellent service provided by Franco, who gave expert advice and a competitive quote. He replaced our central heating tank, flushed the system and installed a Nest control system. All work was to a very high standard and I have no hesitation in recommending PF Plumbing and Heating Services.
Robert S, Stirling said on 14/05/2019:
I had a leak in my hot water tank and got a quote from my usual plumber that was significantly more than I had anticipated. A colleague recommended PF Plumbing and Franco was extremely helpful, as well as offering a much more competitive quote for the tank replacement work. He was able to offer sound, practical advice as well as being very responsive to questions. I did have to wait almost three weeks between getting the quote and the work being completed but appreciate that it was a large job and there was, of course, procurement time to take into consideration. On the day itself, he arrived early and completed the work in good time. Housekeeping was excellent and everything was in situ for me once I returned home. Very happy indeed with the service and would certainly recommend to others.
Stuart Campbell, Larbert said on 18/03/2019:
My first meeting with Franco was to allow him to provide a quote for fitting new radiator TRV’s, fixing a wrongly fitted valve and installing a NEST system. He provided professional advice on other aspects of my current system as well as providing a competitive quote a few days later. On the day of the install he was on time, neat and provided expert knowledge. Thoroughly recommended and would use again for all plumbing needs.
Ewan Graham, Larbert said on 04/03/2019:
Franco initially provided professional advice on my heating system before sending a competitive quote. Franco (and Allan) then fitted a new water cylinder and replaced all thermostatic radio valves and a new Nest heating control system. The finished job is extremely neat (far superior to the original house builder). They were friendly and courteous and left no mess or damage. Thoroughly recommended and trusted.
Julie, Bonnybridge said on 01/03/2019:
PF Plumbing provided a competitive quote with fast service. Franco and Alan are very professional tradesmen. They fitted a new boiler and fixed a botched installation of a hot water cylinder (by another company). They had to move the flue and did so with minimal disruption. Both Franco and Alan were very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. They left the house exceptionally tidy each night. They explained fully anything I asked or needed to know. I would highly recommend them.
Rob, Balerno said on 06/02/2019:
PF Plumbing recently replaced my combi gas boiler with a new Worcester Bosch 34CDi. Their initial quote was competitive and both Alan & Franco’s workmanship was excellent. The install was quick with minimal disruption. I would highly recommend.
Alistair, Polmont said on 16/01/2019:
Franco recently replaced my vented hot water cylinder with an unvented cylinder. From initially making contact to completion of the job, communication was excellent. Franco and Alan did an excellent job of replacing the cylinder and were very thorough in all aspects of the task. Their workmanship is of a high standard. They left the house clean and tidy each day. They were also happy to answer any questions in relation to the task. Would happily recommend.
Scott Brown, Falkirk said on 22/12/2018:
My boiler was in need of a replacement, so I contacted PF Plumbing heating and gas services Ltd as well as 2 other local businesses whom I’d been recommended for quotes. Franco, the owner, came around to take a look and arrived when he said he would, which these days is a plus point in itself. He then proceeded to examine the state of my existing boiler and setup before recommending to me what he believed needed to be done in order to replace it and going over several options for placement of flu’s and the new boiler as well as options for improving my existing timers etc. He was very informative and took time to fully answer my questions. Afterwards i received a competitively priced and fair quote for the work we had discussed, and he also made himself available to me to answer any follow up questions and queries. As a result of all the above and reviews i had read for his company i decided to give Franco the go ahead to install my new boiler and we agreed a suitable date. On the day of the install Franco and one of his employees came around early in the morning and got to work and had managed to decommission the old boiler very quickly before starting the install of the new one. One thing that impressed me was that i needed to have a new flu installed which was in a different location from the existing one that involved the new flu going through the roof. Franco explained that he may need to cut a large hole in the ceiling in order to gain access to the roof space above to install it but was nice enough to ask permission first rather than just going for it and as such i was able to inform him that i knew of how to get access to the roof space via a different room. Its little things like that which gave me confidence in his work. Throughout the day both Franco and his colleague were always happy to answer any questions i had for them and were also quite informative about the install and what they were doing as they went. When they had finished, they showed me what they had done and it looked to my eyes like a very nice, neat and professional job. Nothing was left behind, and everything had been left clean and tidy. I can highly recommend this company.
Max, Falkirk said on 07/12/2018:
Urgently needed a new boiler installed as the old one was completely broken. Franco came out the same evening to give a quote and thoroughly explained everything that was needed. He was really helpful and answered all of our questions and provided a quote promptly. As different options were discussed, he broke down everything fully and was able to tailor it exactly how we wanted it. Franco and Alan came out as quickly as they could and worked quietly to get everything installed and the system flushed. Really happy with the service and the guarantees that are offered on both boilers and the fitting. Highly recommended!
David Plenderleith, Falkirk said on 28/10/2018:
New Boiler and replacement of 4 radiators fitted by Franco and Alan last week to an extremely high standard. The guy’s arrived on time and carried out the installation in a very professional manner. A great job done and very tidy. We would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking for a new boiler, or indeed, any work on your heating system.
Allan, Falkirk said on 25/10/2018:
Very professional tradesmen, Franco and Alan. Worcester Bosch boiler replacement recently installed. Job done on time and first class, Franco and Alan took the time to run us through all stages of new boiler replacement and function.
Mrs F Boynton, Edinburgh said on 20/09/2018:
Exceptional job done! Franco was so thorough, tidy professional punctual and polite. He installed our Worcester Boiler perfectly, all within the stringent Worcester guidelines. I would seriously recommend you hire this company if you are installing a boiler. I can say this with some authority having had a previous company, supposedly a recommended Worcester Installer! fit our new boiler incorrectly, not once, but twice! It took the intervention of the very helpful Worcester Technical Sales Manager, Mr Dean McGrogan to intervene and we were put in touch with PF Plumbing to resolve the problem. Franco knew exactly what he was doing, from installing the correct pipe work and flue, leaving everything immaculate. So yes, hand on heart, I would completely recommend PF Plumbing and Heating.
Don & Mary, Kincardine said on 30/08/2018:
Franco and Alan have just replaced our boiler and hot water system and extended our central heating. We have been very pleased with their professional workmanship. They worked hard and completed the job within the advised timescale, despite unforeseen complications. They were always considerate, polite and friendly and despite the inevitable turmoil, left eveything tidy. We would recommend them without any reservations.
John & Teresa Bryant, Falkirk said on 20/08/2018:
Within this last month we have needed the services of a Heating engineer (oil fired CH) and a roofer. Trustys.co.uk referred us to a list of local tradesmen from which we contacted two; namely Franco Porco (Heating Engineer) and Robert Campbell (Roofer). In both cases we found their workmanship and professionalism of the highest standard and would be happy to recommend them. Be assured, that we will be using Trustys for any future requirements we might have.
Richard, Falkirk said on 24/06/2018:
Franco and Alan recently replaced all gas piping and installed a new boiler in my house. They are both very professional, knowledgeable and efficient. All work was carried out to a very high standard and with the minimum mess and disruption. I’m very pleased with the service and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. In fact they were recommend to me in the first place!
Debbie, Polmont said on 15/06/2018:
Franco and Alan recently installed a new combi boiler in my elderly mother’s bungalow. They worked extremely hard from 8am to 4pm. They were professional, knowledgeable and cleaned up as they went. Excellent job, I would highly recommend PF Plumbing & Heating Gas Services Ltd.
Ian & Linda, Stenhousemuir said on 11/06/2018:
We have lost count the number of jobs Franco has done for us and our 2 sons over the past 9 years. Franco is an excellent tradesman and person. Franco and Alan’s most recent job, boiler replacement and an upgrade from a bathroom to shower room was done to a very high standard. We would rate this firm ***** 5 stars. Give Franco your work you won’t be disappointed.
Colin, Grangemouth said on 31/05/2018:
Had a problem with central heating boiler. Was previously on a contract. 4 engineers tried to fix the problem but heating was still not working properly. Franco arrived and was impressed when he put on shoe covers and brought his own mat to use! Franco soon found the problem which was a blockage in pipe work. The boiler ran OK but shut down later on. Phoned Franco and he came back next day. He worked hard until he fixed it and now it is better than ever. Would strongly recommend him.
Neil Barclay, Falkirk said on 05/04/2018:
Franco was a superb help on the phone, even before he arrived to fix a failed controller on our gas fire. He was helpful, professional, completed the repair smoothly and without any difficulty. His safety checks were thorough, and he kept me informed about all that was going on. He was a pleasure to have doing the work, and he will be the first person I will contact when a future need arises.
Kirsten Morgan, Reddingmuirhead said on 14/03/2018:
Franco fitted a new combi boiler for us and I am delighted by his work. He went out his way to patch up our existing central heating system until we could get the new boiler in, he gave us a competitive quote without the pressure tactics I’d experienced from another company, his work was neat and tidy and generally nothing has been too much trouble for him. The new boiler is streets ahead of our old one and I look forward to dealing with him in the future.
Jane Anderson, Falkirk said on 01/03/2018:
Discovered my boiler was leaking at 2.30 pm yesterday. I called Franco and he arrived within 10 minutes and boiler was back in business by 3.00 pm. So grateful as this is the worst day since 2010. I wasn’t expecting anyone to come due to the blizzard conditions. Glad I used Trustys and chose Franco.
Jill Clayton, Falkirk said on 27/02/2018:
The service I received from Franco was brilliant, he turned out on a bank holiday after I was left with no heating or hot water by another heating company, he made a temporary repair restoring both. Franco has since replaced my central heating system working in the house while I was away, I came back to a warm, tidy home. I can highly recommend PF Plumbing.
Rhona Stevenson, Edinburgh said on 31/01/2018:
Called PF Plumbing to replace separate central heating and hot water boilers with combi-boiler and install two heated towel rails. Provided a competitive price. Arrived promptly to commence work, very efficient minimising the time that we were without heating. Very clean and tidy in work areas, all old materials removed from site. Good practical demonstration of new system. Both Franco and Alan were most helpful. I would highly recommend Franco’s services.
Terry Hunter, Falkirk said on 04/01/2018:
We had an on-going Central Heating problem over the whole of the Xmas holiday period. After various efforts to repair had failed we decided to replace the boiler as soon as possible. I used Trusty’s website to find a heating engineer and contacted PF Plumbing on 31st Dec.Franco called me back and arranged to come to the house on Jan 2nd and said he could probably install on 3rd. He priced the job and he and Alan came the following day to install the new boiler.
From my first conversation with Franco there was a feelgood factor and I was not disappointed. The job was done efficiently and, above all, cleanly. Also, he did ask various questions to see if the boiler was economically repairable and thus save the expense of a new one. A first class service in all respects.
R Allan, Grangemouth said on 29/12/2017:
PF Plumbing installed a complete new central heating system. They did a first class job and cleaned up after them. I would highly recommend this company.
E McAuley, Grangemouth said on 03/11/2017:
I used PF Plumbing Ltd to install a Worcester Bosch central heating boiler and controls, a radiator and a cooker. They also fitted new valves to existing central heating radiators. They removed a cold water tank and a header tank from the loft and a hot water tank from a bedroom cupboard. Working extremely hard from 8.00am to 4.30pm Franco and Alan completed the work in two days. They took great care with existing furnishings, caused minimum disruption and cleaned up at the end of each day. I was only without water and gas for around an hour over the two days. The quality of their work is outstanding. The house has been very cosy for ten days now. I highly recommend PF Plumbing Heating & Gas Services Ltd.
Customer, Falkirk said on 30/09/2017:
Franco installed a new central heating boiler quickly and efficiently. Removal of old boiler and install of new one done very cleanly and neatly. Excellent job at great price. Have already arranged future plumbing work with them.
Thank you Franco
I & L Anderson, Falkirk said on 22/09/2017:
Franco is by far one of the best,he arrives when he says he will,works in an orderly and tidy manner, ensures everything is working properly before leaving. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to anyone.
Customer, Falkirk said on 10/09/2017:
Excellent service and recommended company.
Professional quote, turned up on day agreed and fitted replacement boiler. Flushed out the system, and checked all was working before finishing.
Very knowledgeable on product, no fuss or mess. Would recommend as a local company if you are considering a new boiler.
John Hamilton, Brightons said on 29/08/2017:
I am now retired but worked as a QS in Falkirk and was involved in umpteen heating contracts. My colleague was a heating expert and highly recommended this company. I kept his name in my diary for many years for future use. My old boiler finally broke down and I contacted Franco of PF Heating. I now have a new boiler fitted with quality controls and fittings and I am delighted with it. Franco (and Alan) were friendly and professional and have done a first class job.
Hew Mathewson, St Johns Road Dental Practice, Edinburgh said on 03/08/2017:
We are delighted with the work that PF did for us. A clear estimate was followed by the work being carried out on the specific date agreed. It was a complex and potentially very messy job job but everything was completed thoughtfully, on time and with no mess.
Douglas Dewar, Larbert said on 10/07/2017:
We have used PF Plumbing and Heating before in our last house and our present one, to install a new gas central heating. The standard of work from Franco and Alan can only be described as perfection. They do a first class job and are also very tidy workers. I can not rate them highly enough. Anyone who gets PF Plumbing and Gas to do a job for them are guaranteed getting it done correctly. I really recommend them very highly.
B Rettie, Grangemouth said on 29/06/2017:
Franco & Alan did extensive work on our new home. Replaced old boiler, removed tank and renewed all pipe work & radiators in the house. They were also happy to work alongside the joiner & electrician who were working in the house at the same time. Excellent job once again from PF Plumbing.
Jacquie McCall, Falkirk said on 25/05/2017:
Contacted P F Plumbing for a quote on a replacement boiler installation and explained that I was getting a new kitchen installed at the same time. Franco was more than happy to work with my joiner and was most helpful when extra work was involved. Would def use again.
M Kiely, Falkirk said on 22/05/2017:
Called Mr Porco two weeks ago to check my central heating boiler which had developed an unusual noise and vibration. He called before the day was out, diagnosed the problem and replaced a part which he carried on his van.
Very quick, efficient and reasonably priced.
Highly recommend this firm.
Elizabeth, Bonnybridge said on 13/05/2017:
PF plumbing and heating recently installed new central heating system including new radiators. They did a first class job, they were professional, knowledgeable and cleaned up as they went. Would happily recommend this company and will not hesitate to use in the future. I have already told all my family and friends how good this company is.
Rhona Lynch, Bishopton said on 30/04/2017:
We instructed Franco Porco ( on the basis of strong recommendations) to install a new Worcester boiler to replace our old one. We were not disappointed. From the outset we found him to be highly professional, very helpful and very knowledgeable about his trade. He arrived early in the morning and worked solidly until the job was completed, taking time to ensure that we were satisfied with his work and showing us how to operate a Nest system which we asked him to install. He also cleaned up meticulously after him ! He gave us an outstanding service and was very friendly and approachable during all our dealings with him. Customer satisfaction is obviously very important to him. His price was reasonable and great value for money. We would have no hesitation in recommending this firm to anyone. An outstanding professional service.
D Macgregor said on 14/04/2017:
Franco supplied and fitted central heating boiler and upgraded system. Prompt efficient service, very good advice and very tidy work. Highly recommend his work.
Doreen Binnie said on 14/04/2017:
Just had a new gas central heating boiler installed in my elderly mother’s home in Grangemouth. PF Plumbing & Heating certainly gave us a competitive quote and a hassle free installation. Franco and his team worked well as we wanted this job carried out as quickly as possible and he certainly fulfilled our requirements. Friendly workers and they cleaned up after them! I would highly recommend this company.
H O Brien said on 04/04/2017:

This is not the first work he has done for us, and as ever the service was very professional and of a very high standard. A realistic quotation, and an excellent new boiler. I would highly recommend Franco.

S Hughes said on 02/03/2017:

Franco Porco, no hassle no mess just an excellent job in installing a new hall radiator, can certainly recommend this guy without hesitation, good price too.
N Wilson said on 31/01/2017:
We have used PF Plumbing on a couple of big jobs now. Franco installed a new boiler and water tank for us when we first moved into our house and most recently installed refurbished cast iron radiators and brass valves. Franco’s skills are exceptional – copper pipework moulded to the shape required and all exact. Hi work has even been commented on by other plumbers we have had to the house.

PF Plumbing Heating and Gas Services Ltd (Franco and Alan) Job done: New boiler installation Feedback: We recently had our old boiler removed and a new Worcester Bosch boiler installed by PF Plumbing Heating and Gas Services Ltd. Initially we organised a number of engineer visits (around 7) for free no-obligation quotations but numerous reasons led us to choose PF Plumbing for the work. The most important reasons worth mentioning are: Franco made time for a visit at a short notice. He was very professional and helpful in explaining all work needing done, how they will carry it out and all sort of costs involved to it. He also patiently answered my queries and helped me to choose the right spec for the boiler; PF Plumbing have great yellow page ratings (later I discovered that they are highly rated on other websites as well); Worcester Bosch Accredited Installer; Best Value-for-Money QUOTE. It was the cheapest when compared to all other Worcester Bosch Accredited Installers. Once we accepted the quote, we mutually agreed on the day and time for the work to be carried out. Franco and Alan arrived on time. Work was carefully planned, every detail discussed and explained. Again we found them very professional, considerate and friendly. Having a new born in a busy household, we felt least inconvenience during whole day and a half. Place was left tidy at the end of the first day and also after completion. All in all, we had exceptionally positive experience and would highly recommend PF Plumbing to all potential clients.

PF Plumbing and Heating. Great job cleaning our pipes after another contractor had failed to diagnose the problem. Fixed in one visit at a reasonable cost. We are getting him back to do some more work but beware he is good so he is a very busy man.
Sheila Moffat, Stirling said on 14/10/2016:
Hi, I recently had a new boiler installed by one of your accredited installers and would like to give feedback on the work which was completed last month. The installer was PF Plumbing installer number 36047949 and I would highly recommend their work. It was a complicated installation, in fact I had to contact you to find an installer who would be willing to complete this installation. When I called plumbers I was told it was too complicated and they would not even quote for the job. But not for Franco of PF Plumbing, he suggested an alternative solution that far exceeded my expectations. His communication prior to the job was excellent and the installation was absolutely perfect. I cannot recommend this installer enough and hope by giving feedback other customers will benefit from his exceptionally high standards. Many thanks
