There are very few experiences that are less stressful for homeowners in Horley and the surrounding Dorking, Reigate and Surrey areas than emergency issues with their plumbing system. From burst pipes to blocked sinks, and from dripping taps to frozen systems, our plumbers understand more than most that the only thing a customer wants under such circumstances is a return to normality.
At D & R Plumbing & Heating Ltd, our accredited NVQ and Gas Safe plumbers form the backbone of our responsive emergency plumbing services. Whatever your emergency might be, our team combines 30 years of trade and industry experience to resolve issues quickly and to return properties to a safe and habitable condition.

After isolating the problem inside your Horley, Dorking or Reigate property, our plumbers perform a thorough inspection of the system to check for further issues. With a clearer picture of the cause of the problem and the damage, we can provide a no-obligation quotation for the repair work and schedule a suitable time to perform it.
