Water leak through ceiling

“I had a water leak through a ceiling and had no idea where it was coming from. I called John who visited with a couple of hours. He was very thorough and eventually found the cause, put it right and is coming back to do corrective work to stop it happening again. He was really fantastic, especially as water leaks are a nightmare to locate, especially in a ground floor flat! Tidy, thoughtful and reassuring. Would definitely recommend to others and use again.”
