ABOUT MY BUSINESS
Hi, I'm Shane and I set up SKA Heating and Plumbing in 2015 covering the local Aylesbury area. I run a full service professional heating and plumbing company. I've recently expanded my service to now cover Oxford, Bicester, Buckingham, Milton Keynes, Luton, Dunstable, Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted, Thame, High Wycombe and the surrounding areas.
From minor leaks to major boiler mishaps in both residential and commercial properties, I can take care of all your plumbing and heating needs. I've built longstanding, trusting relationships with many of my clients who not only use me again and again but will also recommend the excellent workmanship that I provide.

LEAK DETECTION AND FIX
You’re a busy person and plumbing problems can't be put off for weeks. When you need a fix, you need it ASAP. Now although there are a number of reasons leaks can occur, I have the right equipment and experience to quickly locate, repair and/or replace the issue fast and effectively. And even if I can't fix the problem there and then, I will temporarily patch your leak and order your specific parts in.
Piece of Mind
I install boilers in new build properties and can replace existing boilers. I also undertake all of the associated plumbing and pipework involved. I also install and replace radiators and radiator valves. I check that your heating is set at the optimum level of comfort for you and can programme your thermostat settings to give you warmth at just the right time when you need it. This means less wastage which could also help to reduce your gas bill.
MAINTENANCE & ANNUAL SERVICING
For Landlords to comply with the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998
As a Landlord, your responsibilities are:
Maintenance: pipework, appliances and chimney/flues need to be maintained safely. Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with the frequency given in the manufacturer’s instructions. If these are not available, you should ask a Gas Safe registered engineer to service them annually.
Gas safety checks: An annual gas safety check should be carried out on each gas appliance/flue. This will ensure gas appliances and fittings are safe to use. There is a legal requirement on you to have all gas appliances safety checked by a registered engineer annually and you also need to maintain gas pipework and flues in a safe condition. This is UK law.
Record: A record of the annual gas safety check should be provided to your existing tenants within 28 days of completion, or to new tenants upon the start of their tenancy. If the rental period is less than 28 days at a time you may display a copy of the record in a prominent position within the dwelling. You’ll need to keep copies of the record for at least 2 years.
Additional info: If a tenant has their own gas appliance that you have not provided, you are responsible only for the maintenance of the gas pipework – not the appliance itself. It’s also a good idea to ensure that your tenants know where/how to turn the gas off and what to do in the event of a gas emergency. Last, but certainly not least, make sure anyone carrying out gas work on your property is Gas Safe registered – this is not only the law, but the most important step to ensuring the safety of your tenants.
TAP, BATH, SHOWER, CISTERN, RADIATORS & PIPEWORK
Comprehensive Professional Service
I am fully trained plumber and heating specialist skilled in up to date methods, techniques and materials which means that my work is carried out to the highest current industry standards. So if you have a tap, bath, shower, cistern, bowl or radiator which needs repair, replacement, a full system flush or a new installation, don't hesitate to contact me today.
I AM GAS SAFE REGISTERED
Don't take the risk with just anyone
The Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in 2009. By law all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register. I am an official gas engineer, registered to work safely and legally on boilers, cookers, fires and all other gas appliances. You can find me by typing in 'SKA' under the business name of the register. My Registration Number is 569955. To find me click the link below.
I AM A BOILER EXPERT
I work with the latest technology
Modern boilers are not the same as they used to be. Most boilers nowadays have serviceable parts which were not invented 10 years ago. Is your plumber up to date in their knowledge of how modern boilers work? My reputation relies on me having the knowledge and skills to deal with new heating and plumbing technology. I have worked on the installation and replacement of most modern boilers ranging from: Vaillant, Worcester Bosh, Baxi, Potterton and Glow-worm.
Leaking pipes don't sleep
Once I know what needs to be done — I'll keep you in the loop and do my best to get it resolved as soon as possible. As a full-service heating and plumbing business, I am happy to guide you through every step of the maintenance or repair process. I am even on hand to help you pick the right bathroom fixtures that I know to be of high quality. And I will be there to fix your emergency leak in the middle of the night.
