Abbeycliffe Plumbing in Thorpe Hesley, Rotherham
Hired Gary to fit toilet/vanity sink.
Had water running from my kitchen ceiling below the bathroom as he was about to leave.
Had to call the next morning as there was still water leaking and the toilet cistern was hanging off the wall. He came back and within minutes of him leaving we had 2 leaks on the sink.
He bluntly refused to accept anything was wrong. He had used silicone all over the joins to try and stop the leak rather than fit the correct pipe/fittings.
As he’d pushed the waste pipe in the wall the outside pipe had pushed out so was no longer connected! His solution was to fill around the waste with tonnes of silicone and hope for the best!
I also bought a new toilet waste pipe for my new toilet and he put the old one on and put mine in the boot of his car! Got him on ring video stealing it!
Toilet now needs taking out as he hasn’t even used washers on the seat fittings so the seats coming off and can only be tightened by fully removing the toilet!
All the work Gary Lawton did has had to be ripped out & redone at our expense. Wall panels fitted incorrectly, huge gaps, not watertight, for a shower. Instead of doing things the right way he botched things. He broke the shower door we bought, went off to buy an inferior one not fit for purpose, fitted it the wrong way round & left it unsecured (He couldn't work out how to work round a small window) nothing fitted correctly, hv photos, happy to share. @A C Bathrooms hv been very helpful helping us get reputable, competent plumbers. Spoke to Gary Lawton, not interested, he threatened Police & Solicitors if I went public. He gets glowing reviews for fitting taps & basic stuff, anything more is beyond him. Tried uploading photos, will add later if it's been unsuccessful.
