Hello, my name is Michael and I have, in one form or another, been in the business for more than 30 years and have always been involved in property maintenance in one form or another.
At present I have interests ranging from property acquisitions, development & management of properties, property maintenance, plumbing, gas & central heating works, painting & decorating and most household jobs, big or small.
Established in 1977, as a one man business in Primrose Hill, North London, The Posh Plumber is now a well established Plumbing & Heating company covering the North London areas. I have been a resident in Muswell Hill since 1987.
The Posh Plumber remains a small family concern. Small enough to 'care' and large enough to respond to "on demand" service. My aim is to give customers a prompt, quality service at a very competitive price. Whether it's a dripping tap, new bathroom, broken down boiler or any associated works, I am always happy to help and advise. I try to ensure all calls are answered in person, but occasionally, it may be necessary to leave a message, text, or email me.
I was educated at a public boarding school in Epping Forest, Essex and originally began my working life, suited and booted in a central london office intending to train as an accountant, but I soon tired of office work and after a brief period of trying a number of different jobs including diamond ring cutter, salesman, book-keeper, clerk and labourer, settled into the life of a self-employed tradesman, first becoming a handyman, then a painter and decorator, followed by plumber and finally becoming a Gas Safe qualified and registered engineer.
I have lived in Muswell Hill since 1987 with my Australian partner, Sally Fox, who is actively involved with the local church and local schools and various societies. We have three children aged 17, 15 and 12.
My interests include digital photography, apple computers, gadgets, big boys toys, diy, foreign travel, foreign films, people watching and architecture and of late, producing a raft of small, work related websites in order to boost my online presence and enhance my search engine rankings.
I am qualified to work on boilers, water heaters, gas fires, gas cookers, meters and Unvented Hot water cylinders as well as all bathroom and shower works. I also undertake work on all Saniflo macerators.
I attend manufacturers training programs in order to keep up to date with the changing technology and have recently attended courses at Worcester, Vaillant, Baxi-Potterton, Ariston and Honeywell training centres in order to compliment my knowledge on condensing boiler installations and servicing, unvented hot water cylinder servicing, central heating controls, energy efficiency and boiler repairs. Upcoming courses will include solar technology and electric boilers.
Hopefully, now you know a bit about me, you’ll make use of my services!
