Due date

Purchased the house 6 months ago, Bathroom had been renovated by previous owner and never used until now. Unable to contact the plumber who installed the bathroom.
The shower rose comes down from the ceiling and it has been leaking. There is a wet stain mark on the ceiling. We cannot access the cavity in the roof as it is a flat roof. Looks like a small man hole will need to be made in the bathroom to access the plumbing. There is the possibility of using the ceiling heat lamp cavity to access the plumbing. The bathroom is on the second level of a terrace house
Vanessa B. left a review for Craig B.
“I could not ask for a nicer more conscientious competent plumber. Craig came out to fix a leak in the ceiling caused by a ceiling mounted shower. He was determined to find the cause which was very difficult to assess due to no access via the roof. A special part was required due to there being a crack in the shower arm. He came back the next day installed it, tested it many times to make sure all was in perfect working order. He was insistent on cleaning up and left it great. I would always use him in future and would recommend him to anyone.”
