I used a roofer to clean the moss off my roof and they did an excellent job at a very reasonable price.  The firm is from Llangefni Anglesey and the prop. is Anthony Evans Tel 01248 489108.
They do work all over N West Wales and I've seen them in the area very recently.

I've used Matt Richardson (07940 432881) a couple of times and was very impressed with the quality of the work & attitude of his workers. I thought his prices were very reasonable too.

I get all my car work done at Llandudno Motors. They look after me superbly, tell me when I should buy original replacement parts or when I can buy equally good copies far cheaper. Labour charges are very reasonable and you can save a fortune compared to main dealers.

I would endorse them too..
Having been in the motor trade I know  an honest garage ( or otherwise)  when I see one .
Being too lazy/old to do my own repairs I'm happy to give them my business

The useful and informative discussion about my £100+ per hour plumbing bill seems to have been removed ( no names were mentioned). Presumably the moderator is a plumber ?
What are acceptable rates for skilled tradesmen ? Isn't that part of the perception of who is good or bad too ?

Our usual plumber Michael Ludenbach, has sadly had to stop working as a plumber due to his knees. A great shame as I have worked with him on some jobs and without doubt is the best person I have ever worked with! He is German and has a great logical way of doing things! Luckily he trained an apprentice who has now taken over the business, he will be my choice next time I have a plumbing job that needs doing!

It took me ages to find this post and when I did it didn't have a recommendation.
I would suggest this whole topic is best suited as a sticky in "Ask a local" and hopefully there would be more input then too.

Now, does anyone know an outside painter/decorator that isn't fully booked for months and if possible has ready access to a cherry picker as the height of my roof is three storeys plus a finial on the top of the eves.
Thanks in anticipation Dave

My neighbour phoned me and said that his TV reception was awful, the picture was breaking up and often the screen would go blank and a notice on the screen would say  no signal or poor reception and he wondered if I was having a similar problem with my TV.   I said I was having a similar problem so my neighbour said that he would get a TV engineer in that had been recommended to him.
My neighbour was thrilled with the results so I used his  engineer to fix my TV's and we are equally pleased with our results too. 
I could recommend him to anyone as he is very good and his prices are reasonable too.  He is Mark Worthington    Tel  07824 340449

We decided to have heat pump and air con installed and the chap who did it was outstanding, both in terms of workmanship and price.

His name is Mike, and the company is:
Northwest Airconditioning Ltd

145A Ashley Road

Hale

Altrincham

Cheshire
 WA14 2UN

Heat pump systems heat your house using heat extracted from the outside air. They can extract heat down to -15C and, in summer, work in reverse to keep the house pleasantly cool. Cost: about the same a single double glazed window.

That is really good to know Ian. The wires on mine snapped last year and I looked for someone then but to no avail. I then thought of doing it myself, however, it looked a bit complex with 'cones' and 'a spring that can kill you' (as one YouTube user described it  :laugh:). So I did a 'bodge' job using some electrical wire and block cable connectors which sort of works but I will give this chap a go.

Hello!

Anyone able to recommend a chimney specialist? Needs repointing, flashing renewing and cowls installing. Has come up on a survey as being a source of damp on our 1930s proposed purchase.

Also, guttering for bay window and general replacement of original cast iron gutters.

Thanks, Stuart

We can highly recommend T.J. Evans Roofing Ltd. 0791 9074891.

They have done numerous jobs for us, roofing, flat roofs, guttering, barge boards and chimneys.

T. J and his men have finally stopped our chimneys leaking after many others have tried and failed. The house is very old and is a listed building, therefore no task is easy !

Another one from me. The driveway on our new house is tight and could do with widening. Its previously been hit by a vehicle and the missus track record doesnt bode well.
So I need a Stonemason and an Iron gate fabricator. Any recommendations? Thanks.

As a further recommendation, two years after the kitchen was fitted, we had a small problem with two of the kitchen cabinet doors, I was going to repair them myself, just a bit of glue, but I phoned Darus first for advice, he came round, phoned the supplier, and arranged to replace every door, all eighteen of them, now that's what I call after sales service.

May I ask if anyone has any recent experience of a GOOD plumbing and heating engineer.
Please don't reply with 'British Gas' as I'm not able use them at this point, because I don't have the monthly plan.

Since the great Brian Thomas gave up dealing with gas, it has been nigh on impossible to get a reliable or even basically competent firm (or individual)  to service my boiler and fix some issues with my underfloor heating flow temperature.

The first local firm made the boiler problem worse whilst servicing it.
The 2nd guy basically told me to sod off as he was too busy to take on any work.
The 3rd company misdiagnosed the problem, lied about what parts needed replacing, and never turned up for the next appointment in any case.
The guy who came today left a gas leak when he left, as he never even checked the meter before he left... which is an absolute BASIC requirement of any gas work.  That's now fixed, but I can't rely on him to complete the job.

The cold weather is fast approaching, it wasn't a priority before, but now is quickly becoming one.

No idea Fester but I would hazard a guess that he is. He was originally brought in to do the gas inspection required to rent the house so he would have to hold certification to do that I would expect.

That wasn’t an option for me, Fester.

For all the retailer knows, I could be a strapping 6’ 3” twenty five year old.

When we had both Homebase and B&Q, I seem to recall these fence panels were half this price.

That's because they were rubbish.

My neighbour who does some gardening for us brought me 2 of those fence panels, he got them from Mostyn Broadway, somewhere near that medical centre.
They were about £20 each I think.   Me and him fitted them.

Thanks, Fester.

That was probably Crest which has since closed down.

B&Q sell them but I was wondering if there was anywhere else?

Can anyone recommend a good computer repair shop?  My laptop starts up, then freezes, then the screen goes blank.  Worked perfectly well last time I used it, a few weeks ago.  It is only used when out on motorsport events, to work out results.  I have previously had all my computer work done in a shop in Colwyn Bay but I am told that has been sold and I have been told that the new owners are nowhere near as capable and helpful as the previous owners.

I am looking for someone who can do a reliable job so everything works fine again - it may be a simple job or it may mean new parts - I don't know, as I have no idea when it comes to programming and sorting out issues with computers!

Thanks in anticipation.
Dave

Morning everyone. Hope you all survived the floods as we did until a pipe on the bathroom radiator decided to leak while we were in Switzerland despite having been put there 7years ago!
When things have dried off we will need a plasterer and a painter and decorator.
Can anyone help with recommendations for these skills please?
I realise we could be in a long queue as so many homes have had flooding in the area but we are anxious to avoid a dodgy repair job.

I have just read Dave's post above this from last August about the computer shop in Colwyn Bay. They did a great job on my computer recently and even managed to save all my photos. The mobile phone shop nearby has also done a good job for me recently repairing a cracked screen. We are very thankful for these Colwyn Bay skills!

Thanks Hollins ... good to know that they still do a good job.  I cannot remember how my laptop problem was solved but it was something simple, bit like me!!!
