Leaking and burst pipe repairs

RJ Martindale offer specialist services to repair leaking and burst pipes to residents local to Manchester and Lancashire.

Leaks in plumbing are very common and very irritating. Not only are leaky pipes a huge inconvenience but they can also create serious damage to your home if left unfixed.

A burst or leaky pipe can be hazardous if it comes into contact with electrical wiring.

We specialise in providing practical and efficient solutions to leaks and burst pipes in the event of emergencies.

Read on to find out more information about our leaking and burst pipes services or contact us today to book a repair.

Burst or cracked pipes

A burst pipe can be the result of lack of maintenance or due to cold temperatures if it freezes. If water in a pipe freezes, it will expand and put your pipes under a lot of pressure.

If a substantial amount of pressure is placed on the pipework, this can create cracks and tears at sensitive areas such as the joint of the pipe.

Our specialist team will minimise any damage that has been caused as a result of burst or cracked pipes by removing excess water and carrying out an efficient pipe repair service.

A complete overhaul of my central heating system was done by Scott and Toby who were exemplary in their professionalism, customer service and standard of work completed. I can wholeheartedly recommend Martindales as the standard of work coupled with highly competitive pricing equals no need to look elsewhere. Thank you again Ryan and team.

New boiler installed and pipe work re-routed and now up and running within a couple of days. The guys were prompt, polite, accommodating, and worked hard throughout both days, (and in particular Scott); to ensure everything was completed on schedule. Good work ethics and team culture was recognised throughout. The boiler (a Viessmann Vitoden 100) is a Which? best buy brand, complete with a 10 year warranty, and Ryan and his team are approved installers, so I am looking forward to years of trouble free service! Price for work was competitive and within my budget. Not quite 5 stars due to a few minor points, but will definitely recommend Ryan and his team, to friends and family. Overall a good job done - thanks.

Leaking or Burst Pipes

Dripping taps

Dripping taps can be a costly nuisance to homeowners. Did you know that on average, dripping taps can waste up to three gallons of water per day? This can run up your water bill unnecessarily.

Our expert team can check your taps for damage and replace anything that needs replacing to make sure that your taps work efficiently and water will not be wasted.

Radiator leaks

A leaking radiator if left unchecked can cause damage to your home and become a hazard if it comes into contact with electrics.

Our specialist engineers have the skill and tools to fix radiator leaks quickly and efficiently.

Leaking or Burst Pipes

Flooding

If your home has fallen victim to a burst pipe flood, this can be very distressing. If you notice a pipe has burst and is causing flooding, it is vital to call out an engineer as soon as possible to try to minimise the damage.

If you require an emergency service because of flooding, contact us and we will send a member of our team out to help as soon as possible.

What areas do you cover?

We cover the Greater Manchester and Lancashire areas, including: Manchester, Bolton, Salford, Oldham, Wigan, Bury and Rochdale.

Is a leaking overflow pipe dangerous?

Getting an overflow problem rectified quickly is important as many fittings attached to the overflow pipe have not been tested for leak issues which means that leaks can happen without you realising.

A leaking overflow pipe can lead to flooding which is extremely dangerous if it comes into contact with electrics. Make sure you seek expert help if you suspect a leaking overflow pipe.

Is a pipe bursting covered by insurance?

Our homecare insurance plans cover burst pipes and leaks. For more information about our homecare insurance plans, contact us.

What happens when a pipe bursts?

When a pipe bursts, it can lead to flooding and damage to the property.

How do you clean up after pipes burst?

The aftermath of a burst pipe can leave a strenuous clean up task in its wake. Make sure you do your best to remove excess water and remove personal items from the affected area.

A dehumidifier is useful for removing moisture from the area.
