Tackling plumbing and heating jobs, servicing central heating systems, fixing boilers and maintaining indoor and outdoor swimming pools and hot tubs is all in a day’s work for talented James Rothwell.

Grafter James spent four years living on Lanzarote where he built a successful company specialising in pool construction, maintenance and servicing, plus changing chemicals in hot tubs and Jacuzzis.

Now he can offer that expertise to pool owners in the Ribble Valley, alongside his other skills.

Fitting new bathroom suites is another of his services. 

The pictures, right, show a new disabled access bathroom installation, with walk-in shower and seat which he fitted for Joan Lawless, of Bamber Bridge. 

She said: “James has been brilliant. He’s a clean worker and I’m happy to recommend him.” 

James has plenty of experience – at one point he was installing up to 50 bathrooms a year for the now defunct Dolphin Bathrooms. 

“People can do everything from the comfort of their own home with us,” says friendly James. 

“At our first consultation I will take the details from the client and design a floor plan and then I’ll return with catalogues so they can choose all their fittings, right down to a light switch. If people miss something out, I bring it to their attention.”

Whatever your budget, give James a call. He adds: “I will deal with the suppliers. When you call me in there is no stress and no fuss.”

If your gas boiler has a fault, the odds are that James can fix it.

For five years he worked for boiler maker Alpha Heating Innovation, fixing 1,500-2,000 boilers a year.

“I have the right equipment to do all the diagnostic tests,” he says. 

James, 44, has technical details for every make of boiler in the UK on his mobile phone and can obtain rare parts to extend the life of outdated boilers. He has 17 years’ experience, is Gas Safe registered and employs two engineers, Jake McCann, above right, and Liam Tomlinson. They look after boilers in 1,000 properties for five estate agents and provide landlord gas safety certificates. The team also service and replace gas fires and are B & Q Homefit-approved installers for Focal Point Fires. 

As well as servicing and repairs, they do boiler installations and install central heating. 

A call-out service is offered for emergency leaks and boiler problems. 

Senior citizens and disabled people also receive discounts.

“Just ring us and we will do our best to help you out,” says James.
