Must admit I was very impressed. The guys arrived on time and went about their business to a very high standard.

We’re toasting another landmark year of landfill savings at Plastic Surgeon, as we’ve surpassed our previous year’s achievements once again.
Through our repair capabilities – where we advocate a repair over replacement approach – we succeed in preventing thousands of tonnes of waste heading for landfill every year.
The positive environmental aspects are one of the primary benefits of our services. If we take construction sites as an example, they’re busy places and damage is an inevitable consequence of having multiple trades doing active work on site. With such a volume of traffic, it’s unavoidable that accidents and subsequent damage occurs.
Without repair, something such as a cracked bath in a new build or damaged cladding on a commercial site, would be simply ripped out and sent to the tip. However, through the utilisation of our services, our repair technicians can come in and fix it, meaning 1) waste is reduced and 2) the cost of a replacement item is saved.
We use our bespoke Visibility system to meticulously track our repairs, including landfill savings and myriad other details. The great thing about such comprehensive reporting is that it allows us to use the minutiae to paint the bigger picture, enabling us to determine that across 2018 we improved our total by 9% when compared against 2017; saving 3,783 tonnes.
Now, that may look like mere numbers on a page to you, so to try and help you visualise it, let’s turn it into double decker buses.
A new Routemaster bus weighs approximately 12.65 tonnes, so if we divide 3,783 by that figure, it equates to 299 double decker buses. Can you picture 299 double deckers side-by-side? It’s huge!
748,399 individual repairs helped contribute to that figure, including 27,997 internal doors, 14,667 windows and 12,195 external doors, as well as 3,728 baths.
Totalling up our repairs is always a rewarding experience, and it enables us to appreciate just what we’ve achieved over the year. We’re delighted to have surpassed our previous total again, so here’s to a successful 2019 and saving even more waste from heading to landfill.

The guys who came were lovely and did an excellent job. I can’t even tell that there was a gouge in my bath.

From the first contact until the job was completed I was made to feel a valued customer. Contact was first class with a time slot for the job to take place, the operative was very friendly and helpful too.

We had some screw holes repaired in the framework of one of our patio doors and after the repair no-one can tell the holes were ever there.

I would recommend this company to everyone, the service was excellent and the job was 100%. Really nice company to deal with and the person who did the job was very happy in his work.

The finisher was very neat and organised, with a resulting repair that is almost impossible to distingish from the original door.
