Our company is family run, it was started by our father Peter Brayford back in 1963.
It started off as a plumbing, decorating and property repairs business. In 1985 Peter junior started working for the business straight from school, where he did a full apprenticeship as a plumbing and heating engineer. He was contracted out to British Gas for ten years. In 1992 Richard joined the family business after doing an apprenticeship as an electrician. We worked together training in plumbing, heating, gas, oil, building maintenance and electrical work.
Richard and Peter took over the business in the year 2000 where we upheld the tradition of the company and expanded into other fields of work. Solar installations, swimming pools and spas are now an established part of our business as well as the plumbing and heating, electrical, gas and oil. We are members of Corgi for the gas including LPG, with Oftec for the oil and the UK Trades Confederation for the electrical work, which is inspected annually and gives us a rating for all work carried out by the business.
We pride ourselves on having a reliable reputation, we still do work for customers that our father first worked for back in 1963.
Our solar reputation is growing fast, and now along with our own work we are approved contractors to three other solar companies, this takes us the length and breadth of the country. We have even worked as far away as Bordeaux in France.
The solar panels and solar compatible condensing boilers we are currently installing, in our opinion, are the best on the market that is why we give a FULL TWO YEAR GUARANTEE on all our work. We are so impressed with the products we install we even have them fitted at our own home.
With fuel costs spiraling out of control and the damage to the environment caused by these same fuels, we are convinced that solar and condensing boilers are the way forward.
