6th June 2019: Summer is finally upon us! We have been completing our general plumbing and heating works, and we've included a few photographs of us commissioning our boiler installations - action shots! Typically, we would have a couple of more bathroom-related pictures to show, but we have two larger bathroom projects nearing completion, so we'll upload those once finished - we have included some from a recent bathroom fitting project. After years of customers asking us whether we offer monthly cover plans, primarily for boiler breakdowns, water leaks, no power etc., we will be soon offering this to all previous customers at a reduced rate for the first 24 months. We are finalising the final details and will be offering this within the next 2-3 months. We will also have plans designed for landlords in which we are trialling with Lewis & Foy Lettings. So, I hope all our customers enjoy their summers and (hopefully) their holidays!
28th April 2019: Bonjour! A couple of photographs below document the full bathroom installations we completed over the last couple of weeks - these have been entire rip-outs of the old bathroom suite, including new tiling, electrics, plastering, plumbing - we have also supplied much of the materials and suites too. We have also been working on a light commercial heating installation for new offices ready for freight company based in Liverpool City Centre to move their headquarters too - we'll have more photographs once this is finished entirely. Of course, the usual boiler installations and conversions have been occurring too - we will also be installing the latest Worcester Bosch Style boiler at a customer's home soon - this boiler has not yet been released publicly. Last, but not least, the company received a fantastic review from a longstanding customer, Mr & Mrs Jones:
"After having our bathroom completely refitted we then had the kitchen done. This included three oak floors one in the kitchen the other two in a breakfast room and the garden room. I am delighted with the end product. Tom, Danny and John worked with skill and humour. They kept me informed throughout, offering innovative suggestions where needed. They were ever mindful their workplace was our home. James Foy and his company set a standard other companies can only aspire to." - Len Jones
26th March 2019: It's been a busy few weeks with various substantial projects being undertaken, including our smaller day to day works. We have added a few photographs of our recent boiler installations, replacements and conversions. We have initiated a full property refurbishment with Lewis & Foy Lettings offering the letting. The property had been completely stripped and had laid empty for approximately five years. Our teams are fitting a new kitchen, bathroom, gas central heating and re-wiring - every aspect of refurbishment is being undertaken. Of course, we have been conducting our various gas safety certificates, boiler servicing, general plumbing and heating work. We have also been completing commercial gas works, including commercial gas certificates and commercial boiler repairs. Jonnie, senior electrician of JFE, has been leading the team on a substantial electrical installation for a large brand new club/bar on Hanover Street, Liverpool City Center - we look forward to seeing it on opening night! PS: we are currently looking to hire another full-time electrician!
1st March 2019: Commercial boiler installations completed with lagging!
26th February 2019: Full bathroom installation for probably our most prolific customer Mrs Feldman! It seems that we've been working almost continuously for the last year for her and her family, whether on their families hotels or her private property. We completed a full bathroom for her family, including her new addition! We have also been completing our usual boiler installations, commercial gas certifications, commercial repairs etc - some photos are below (some show the work in progress!). We have also began a full property refurbishment on Romulus Street which will last approx. 4 weeks. This property has been empty for 5 years and is undergoing a full property refurbishment to bring into a high living standard ready for letting.
3rd February 2019: Three full bathroom refurbishments in a single property in Aigburth. Our teams designed, managed and completed the whole project. The ensuite bathroom was especially tough due to the ensuite room containing part of the stairwell. Nevertheless, we achieved the customer's requirements.
30th January 2019: This is our first update for 2019. We started our new year installing a new heating system for a large private nursery in Huyton. Initially, they had a single 120kw boiler which consistently failed, resulting in downtime for the nursery. The radiators are original old cast radiators. While the radiators worked sufficiently, the system water was in relatively poor condition. We cleaned the system to the best of our ability, but to avoid dirty system water circulation through the new boilers, we installed a plate heat exchanger. This effectively created two systems in which the heat exchanges between the two through a highly thermal conductive plate. The new boilers only circulate clean, treated water allowing them to operate efficiently. The new system has redundancy built in with the two boilers working together to adequately heat the system and acting as the primary source for the indirect unvented hot water cylinder. We have worked together with Ideal, the boiler manufactures, to ensure commercial standards have been met, subsequently leading them to extend the warranty for the Nursery. Of course, we have been doing our general domestic home boiler installations for private customers. In regards to bathrooms, we will create another update with these - we're currently finishing 3 bathrooms in the same property.

17th December 2018: A customer in Huyton had expensive electrical heaters throughout her property. These are often fairly unreliable, expensive and usually operate independently of each other, thus your home is often too warm or too cold - never really consistent. We have installed a full central heating for the customer in the current position of their multipoint. During a bathroom refurbishment, Lastly, we installed another Worcester CDI boiler, including replacing 14 radiators.
6th December 2018: A stunning bathroom for a lovely family in Crosby - we are completing their boiler and kitchen, too! We also completed commercial hot water works installing two unvented cylinders, replacing four old hot water cylinders which had deteriorated and provided poor pressure for residents.
16th November 2018: With the winter creeping in we have been occupied with boiler installations and full central heating systems, with us providing all the components including radiators, magnetic filters, wireless thermostatic controllers and boilers. All our installations are boiler plus compliant with the thermostatic programmer containing load compensation. You can view more about Boiler Plus here. We have also been installing our first electric system boiler with an unvented cylinder. This is currently being installed in an apartment on the Albert Dock which maintains no gas supply.
6th November 2018: During this time of the year, people are starting to use their central heating system more frequently. It has usually had limited usage over the summer. We also usually conduct more power flushes during this time of the year too. People will ensure their system is working to its potential ready for the winter. Below is a few snaps of our engineers' power flushing our customers central heating systems. As a precaution, we often install a new magnetic filter onto the current system to help maintain function and keep the heating system relatively clean over time.
5th November 2018: Our customer (who happens to have an OBE, Order of The British Empire - for outstanding contribution to the Civil Service) had a large bedroom area in which an en-suite would be suitable for. We built the entire room from scratch, including all first and second fixed for both plumbing and electrics, including the drainage. We also tiled and fitted all the bathroom furniture. Not a bad review! We have also included other photographs of another bathroom finished for a long standing customer. Mrs. Donnelly left us a review via email:
"James and his team came to build and fit out an ensuite in our main bedroom. The job from beginning to end was carried out with great professionalism and the end result was everything and more than we could have expected. We have no hesitation in recommending this company - they really go the extra mile to make sure the customer is satisfied."
Sue Donnelly OBE
23rd October 2018: A client had an extension built (by another company), and the central heating system kept losing pressure multiple times per day. The extension was of considerable size and the pipework was buried underneath the concrete. This made it impossible to exactly pinpoint the issue - no water was visible on the surface. Using the latest thermal technology we pointed out the exact location of the breakage avoiding unnecessary and expensive excavation.
18th October 2018: Our organisations have been extremely busy commencing a comprehensive property refurbishment of a seven bedroom hotel purveying towards the short stay hotel market, such as Airbnb. We gutted the property entirely and renovated all aspects including heating, electrics, bathrooms and general works. The building is controlled remotely by the owners using WiFi enabled locks and one-time access controls/codes. Aside from this project, we have completed our usual boiler conversions, full central heating installations and unvented cylinder replacements. Of course, we have also completed further bathroom refurbishments. Speaking of bathrooms, for the past five months we have not been accepting invitations for bathroom quotations due to being fully booked for many months. We are happy to announce we are now taking new quotation requests. We have something else unique to our services to announce. During the last six months we have been developing a service many of our landlords have requested whether we offer. The service - property management. We have established a business named 'Lewis & Foy Lettings' with a close associate, William Lewis. William Lewis is a Chartered Surveyor with decades of experience and operates a substantial property & land portfolio throughout Liverpool & Lancashire. We will have further news to announce about this in due time. In the meantime, you can view our website here. We have also expanded our Electrical services through James Foy Electrics - we have had our first two vans signed up, similarly keeping the brand throughout. Jonnie is leading up our electrical team. Oh, we would also like to welcome three new members of staff - Allen, William & Sean. That's it folks!
2nd July 2018: Two jobs worth a special mention. One is a beautiful bathroom installation off Lark Lane in which a Victorian style bathroom has been designed and installed. Looks amazing! The second is a 20 radiator installation with a Worcester GB162 and unvented cylinder installed in a student property near Liverpool City Centre. This provides 500 litres of hot water available instantly on a secondary return.
2nd July 2018: Bathroom installations. Boiler Installations. Plumbing repairs. A selection of photographs from our usual daily work! Keep an eye out for James Foy Electrics new website. We are growing this side of the group rapidly. We are now NICEIC certified Domestic Installers!
5th June 2018: Well... summer has definitely arrived and we're loving the weather. We've been busy with usual boiler installations and conversions recently, which can be a little odd during this time of year. We are currently preparing for large installation works on Denman Drive which will be commencing this month. Anyway, as always we have included photographs of some of our recent plumbing and heating works.
30th April 2018: A boiler installation project on Hutchinson Street, Liverpool City Centre. This property is both the private residence of a loyal customer plus a short term stay rental. We installed 3 ATAG combi boilers, replacing their old combi boilers - one replacement took place in their rental property plus 2 in their private residency. Documented is another 2 boiler conversions from hot water cylinder/system boilers. We installed ATAG boilers in all of these properties - excellent boilers with large 10 year warranty. As stated in earlier updates, we've been gradually increasing on drainage repairs. We replaced another collapsed gully for a lovely family in Huyton. We also worked for Hatfields Jaguar last week, removing drain blockages from their sales showroom on Riverside Drive. Tom also successfully installed his first dishwasher for Police Mutual - hahah!
17th April 2018: It's that time for another update. Below are photographs of some recent plumbing, drainage and heating works we have completed recently. We've been gradually completing more drainage work than usual, including jetting blocked drains clear and replacing collapsed drains throughout Merseyside. We also completed another phase of hot water works at a care home. This comprised of two unvented cylinders linked together, including a secondary return providing many individual rooms with almost instantaneous hot water. Their current hot water system was extremely fragmented and suffered from huge hot water delivery delays, resulting in high water bills. Of course, we have also been completing our usual boiler installations, unvented/open vent installations and general day to day repairs.
16th March 2018: It's been a busy few weeks here at James Foy Plumbing. We have been doing our usual boiler installations, conversions, bathroom installations and unvented hot water works - including many plumbing/heating repairs for our clients, old and new! As always, we've published more photographs of our works. We also welcome a new member of staff David - he will be completing installation works for heating and hot water.
24th January 2018: After the recent festivities everyone is back to usual! We have included some photographs below from our works in January. In November we put a temporary restriction on bathroom quotations due to a full order book. We are now accepting quotations for bathroom, albeit we wouldn't be able to start immediately. We have also successfully won further works in student accommodations in both Liverpool & Manchester with Liberty Living.
12th December 2017: So yeah - the winter has really started now. Seemed to change overnight! Our team has been busy with the usual boiler installations, unvented installations and general plumbing/heating & hot water works. We completed a large drain cleaning job at a student accommodation which took us 3 days to complete - ewww! We also installed a full bathroom with storage under the bath! So anyway, this will probably be the last update until the new year now, so we've included a few photographs of works completed recently. We would like to wish our members of staff, all 21 of them - including their family, a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2018. All have worked extremely hard and are greatly appreciated. Last but not least, we wish to say thank you to all our customers, both old and new, for their loyal custom throughout 2017. We have some exciting changes happening in 2018!
23rd November 2017: Welcome winter! James Foy Plumbing are now officially Worcester Accredited Installers allowing us to offer extended warranties (10 years) and better deals on Worcester products. We also welcome Ashley to our office team! We've been busy doing our usual boiler installations, conversions and repairs - including more and more commercial gas works. Actually been doing many unvented cylinder installations too - I've a feeling it won't be long till we've done most of Wapping Quay! Of course, multiple bathrooms have been completed too but we've temporarily stopped new bathroom quotations as we're fully booked now until April 2018. We will soon be releasing a feature on our website which will allow you to build your own boiler installation package and it'll give you a fairly accurate pricing.
19th October 2017: Our company is delighted to announce the employment of 5 new members of staff - Neil, Andrew, John and Peter. We will also be welcoming a new member to our office team to help Gemma & Claire. The new members of our team will enable us to survey more and complete larger commercial works in the future. You will have started to notice the colder and slightly darker mornings dawning upon us. Although, to some people it will start to signify the run into the new year and Christmas. However, to us it signals our busiest period of the year. Homes throughout the city and local suburbs will begin turning their central heating system on for the first time in months, potentially. If you have an issue with your central heating turning back on, commercial or domestic, give us a call! Below are just a few snaps from recent works. We installed a SalonMaster for Prado in Liverpool One. Prado is a luxury hair dressing salon.
20th September 2017: Hola! This is probably the longest period without any of our usual photos and updates. We've been extremely busy on commercial works in student accommodations and with the installation of two commercial boilers producing 160kW of heating power! This is for a new luxury hotel situated on Dale Street currently being developed. We also installed a new 30 metre flue for the boilers to exhaust into. Of course during this time we've been completing the usual boiler installations, conversions, general heating/plumbing repairs and new bathroom installations. We are also currently hiring more staff. We are looking for a further two bathroom fitters and one, potentially two, further heating engineers - primarily domestic engineers. We are also looking forward to moving into our new office/unit located on Bridal Road. Oh, almost forgot - we will soon be Worcester Accredited.
4th August 2017: Last week was very busy! We completed a commercial boiler installation for a luxury care home in Blundellsands.

14th June 2017: Really busy week - you wouldn't believe it was the summer time! We finished an initial phase of hot water works in the prestigious Formby Hall (PGA Golf Course). They require a huge hot water supply for their commercial kitchens and bathrooms in their downstairs facilities. We installed a large commercial hot water heater running at 52kW of power - purely producing hot water. We liaised with their teams to ensure a smooth transition without any downtime for there busy kitchens and facilities. Next phase will be starting soon! Their grounds are absolutely beautiful and extremely well maintained. Another set of photographs documenting a 15 radiator installation with a large Worcester boiler and cylinder for hot water storage. Of course, we've the usual updates of boiler installations, replacements and full bathroom installations - including many smaller jobs! Well done everyone!

We first and second fixed a new bath, shower enclosure with wall to wall screen, thermostatic shower, toilet and wash hand basin. Of course, we then tiled the whole bathroom - wall and floor. We also created a niche within the showering area which is fully tiled. New spotlights installed too. We completed this bathroom in Aigburth, Liverpool - great result!
14th May 2017: Really hectic week - we fitted 8 boilers for domestic and commercial customers throughout Merseyside.

We also have two bathrooms nearing competition, one of which was extremely designed beautifully by the customer - we simply implemented their desires and plans. Ciaos!

We also removed a chimney breast from one of the bathrooms and fitted gallows brackets to support the remaining chimney making room for their new shower enclosure.
