Mick ripped out 2 bathrooms for us and made everything good (including constructing new stud walls and niches himself) before fitting new bathrooms for us. He was courteous and reliable throughout, plus neat and tidy both during his work and in clearing up each day. He worked calmly and efficiently, and his experience means that he always seems able to find workarounds for the inevitable issues that crop up during a project. It is also helpful that he does most of the work himself, eg. carpentry, which means that you are not having to liaise with too many different tradesmen. Importantly, it is clear that he also has a reliable team of people around him to do the bits where he does need assistance - eg. electrics, plastering etc - which means the chances of significant delays to a project are small. Our two bathrooms took a total of 4.5 weeks although this would have been <4 weeks if our tiler had not been slightly delayed. We are very pleased with the quality of Mick's work and the look of the finished bathrooms. We are so glad that we chose Mick over other companies that we got quotes from, as I am sure that few, if any of them, would have had his attention to detail or ability to do the job in such a no-fuss, efficient manner Thanks again!

All Advice by Michael Frith Plumbing Advice

Sometimes you need a little bit of advice before hiring a trade. Our community of professional trades are here to help.

How long does it take to fit a new bathroom?

This normally depends on the size of the bathroom and the amount of work required, At Michael Frith Plumbing i normally allow 10 days for most complete bathroom refurbishment jobs. This would include the ripping out of existing bathroom products and alteration of any pipework and electrics to suit the new installation, preparing walls and floors for tiling or other coverings, installation of bathroom suite and shower products, clearing site and rubbish removal. A basic straight swap bathroom suite without any major alterations or tiling would take approximately 2 to 3 days.

What is the best way to update bathroom tiles without replacing them?

If you dont want to remove existing tiles, one option would be to clean out the existing grout & replace with a new colour, although this is a long and tedious job. Other & better options are to cover with decorative waterproof wall panels or to skim over with plaster and decorate, with any of the last options to get the best finish it would be preferable to remove any existing sanitary ware and radiators including wc suites and wash basins, but as with any work involved in your bathroom or anywhere in your house i would always get professional advise, it will probably end up saving you money

What is the best type of flooring for a bathroom?

I would normally recommend either tiling in either ceramic, porcelain or stone tile with the option of electric underfloor heating. Vinyl or laminate flooring suitable for bathrooms is another option & normally cheaper than tiling, most of the above are also available in non slip options. I would personally steer clear of carpets in bathrooms.

Michael Frith Plumbing Recommendations

Worked on a project with Michael Frith Plumbing posted 24/05/2019

Mick passed a painting job on to me in an ensuite bathroom after having completed a refit.. it was lovely to go into a very clean and tidy well fitted bathroom.. which meant I could get straight on with my own work. I would definitely highly recommend him and would gladly paint any project he has been working on .

Worked on a project with Michael Frith Plumbing posted 17/05/2019

mick is a very polite and personable guy and is very essy to to talk to. he even had the patience to show me how to correctly fit a toilet. even though i asked lots of questions as i want to know how to do.it right..nothing i asked was too much hassle for him

Worked on multiple projects with Michael Frith Plumbing posted 17/05/2019

I have known Mick for a number of years now and we have worked together on a few jobs, he would ask me to do the tiling on projects when he was very busy. It was a pleasure to work with Mick, his attention to detail and professionalism was always first class, always tidy, reliable and his customers requirements were always his main concern. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mick to any future clients.
