HB Plumbing & Heating Ltd derives from the surnames of the directors Houldsworth & Backhouse.
We are both local lads, born and bred around Bentham, both of us have at least 20 years experience in the plumbing and heating trade....having served our time for local plumbing firms, so we are well known and trusted in the area. We found ourselves working together for a local company and seemed to work very well together so decided to go into business ourselves in June 2004 and we've never really looked back since. Initially it was just the two of us but it wasn't long before we couldn't cope with the work load and had to take more staff on. We now have another two qualified plumbers in the team making it four of us in total. We feel we are a nice sized company which is big enough to cope but small enough to care.
We have undertaken all kinds of jobs over the years from repairs/installations in old cottages through to full renovations of country homes, modern mansions and work in the Borough Hotel, Lancaster, which consisted of the fitting of a new heating hot and cold system, right through to the tiling of all natural stone wet rooms throughout.
We are all fully City and Guilds qualified and have had additional training for the organisations mentioned below - doing our training through training bodies such as LOGIC and BPEC. All these additional qualifications require retraining every five years meaning that we are always up to speed with new regulations etc.
We are members of various organisations which means we can install and fully certify work in gas, oil and solid fuel systems.
