Plumber & Gas Engineer Nottingham, Derby, Leicester ...
Hi, my name is Nick Hardy and I am the sole trader of DNH Plumbing & Heating
It all started 17 years ago helping a friend who runs his own plumbing business while his work mate was on holiday. I enjoyed the work and, he appreciated my help. After several more times helping him I swapped textile dyeing for plumbing!
I served my time as an apprentice and have been employed by Upton & Pegg Ltd, R&T Ltd and more recently AM Norris Ltd. I have worked on contracts for new build sites whilst also training apprentices. This involved all aspects of plumbing and gas work which was very satisfying as every house was like a blank canvas.
I took real pride in doing a tidy job, so that the plumbing not only worked as efficiently as possible but looked attractive to the eye also. So much so that the other tradesmen I worked alongside nick-named me the 'pretty-plumber'!
As the building climate started to go into decline I decided to 'go-it-alone' as a sole trader and concentrate on domestic work. Whilst being out in the field with the general public I have noticed the frequent lack of trust which I am ashamed to say is not unfounded. I have been to many homes particularly to the elderly where shocking work has been carried out and horrendously inflated prices have been charged. So please feel free to ask to see my Gas registration card and number & public liability certificate as this will help to stamp out rogue traders.
I find a lot of domestic jobs I do involves problem solving and detective work which I enjoy. The client benefits by my inquisitiveness as, what was perhaps thought to be a massive job, is often not!
Also beneficial to the customer, I think, is the fact that I am a sole trader. Yes, it may take me longer on bigger jobs but I price for the job itself and the customer knows that the buck stops with me! Not a team of plumbers whose ability is of varying standards but the price is cheap only because they can buy the stock in bulk and have the bodies to do the work fast.
I will give you my honest opinion of the work that needs doing and I am more than happy for you to speak to customers that I have worked for.
