I'm not that flush. ;)
One of my brothers in law is a gas safe registered heating engineer and plumber so he's doing trade price but it still isn't a cheap job, glad I'm not paying full whack.

Thats fairly cheap asfar as a full repipe and system upgrade is concerned. One thing I would recommend with combi boilers is dont be a skin flint when it comes to the boiler. You might save some money in the short term but you'll lose out on a furtune in parts in just a few years. Id recommend sticking to Potterton, Baxi, Glowworm, Worcester or Vailliant. Potterton are owned by baxi and are generally the exact same boilers as their baxi counterparts but tend to be alot cheaper but just as good. You pay for the name sometimes

And stoney, get the to insulate your radiator/water pipes underneath the floor because if they dont and you get a burst pipe for example and your ceiling caves in, your home insurance wont pay out. Plus it all increases the effiency even if only a little bit but every little helps with the price of gas these days

An Inspector earns about twice what i do, I'm just a lowly PC.
The job will be done properly, my missus has nominated herself as project manager and won't stand for a half job.

I was only saying because alot of installers dont fit the insulation amd a lot of people dont realise that their insurance wouldnt pay out foe that kind of situation until its too late :)

I'll make sure that the project manager is duly advised, thanks for the pointers.
