Very efficient team at ACT. We had a break in and Zul and his co-worker were very quick to come and make the front door usable and secure until the glass arrived. Again they were super quick to install the double glazed front door and clean up afterwards. Highly recommend this firm.

Amazing professional service from Zul. Awoke at 6am last Saturday morning to go on holiday to find water in kitchen coming through roof. Zul arrived at 6.30am to fix damaged valley and broken tiles. Top man Mr Simpkin
Friendly, prompt and professional - what more could you want from a local firm. I needed some ridge-tiles replaced before the rain and out of the four companies I emailed and phoned, Zul was the only one who replied to me straight away and gave me a date he could get to me. He and his team not only replaced the broken tiles but carried out extra work which I couldn't get to. I can't recommend him enough and shall be using ActDirect again. Thank you Zul.

Zul and his team of professionals are excellent. They have helped us for years with any repairs we needed: locks, doors, bathrooms, flooring, appliances, the list is long and they can do everything! Lately they fully renovated a house to extremely high standards. They are very punctual and the work is done with great care. I definitely recommend Act Direct.

Brilliant service. Zul came out that evening to assess a leak and was back on my doorstep before 9am the following day to fix it. Personable and reliable plumber, I recommend him highly. EDIT: 3 weeks later, Zul came out to check on another plumbing issue, fixed it in 20 minutes and didn't charge me! Thanks so much Zul.

Fantastic service from both Zul & Leo. We had water escaping from an unknown source. One phone call and in the space of no time Zul and Leo attended, found the source of the leak and repaired. Very courteous and polite, explaining clearly what the issue was. Even after they ensured that they cleaned up spotlessly! Would 100% recommend for any maintenance work your property requires.

I can honestly say that Zul and his team from ACT Direct have been nothing short of a god send. Our hotel in the Cotswolds had some problems with the roof. After struggling with a number of tradesman who had let us down. One call to Zul on a Friday evening and he was there within 30 mins. Not only did he diagnose and repair the roof so we could continue trading without affecting our guest experience. to my utter astonishment they were also able to fix everything else including general plumbing and heating issues. In this day and age it is difficult to find quality people who care and know what they are doing. Zul and his team are knowledgeable and true experts in their field. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I could have saved myself a lot of time and money had I come across ACT a few months ago. They are second to none! 'Better call Zul' I will certainly will be for the rest of my life!
I found Zul and Liam to be good people operating a professional service and responsible business. Undertaking complicated plumbing and boiler installation, they worked efficiently with follow up checks. I shall be using them for a new bathroom.
