Commercial Plumbing

What is the difference between a Residential and Commercial Plumber?

Working as a Plumber in someone’s home usually involves installing or repairing pipework over one or two floors. A Commercial Plumber will often work on a larger scale as the size of the building or project is far greater and is therefore more complex, requiring a good understanding of scope of the project. Holgates Commercial Plumbers are highly skilled and qualified to handle Commercial buildings. Contact Holgates for more information.

Fixing Burst Pipes in Commercial premises

A burst pipe is more likely to occur during the colder, Winter months.  When the water inside pipes starts to freeze, it expands and this causes an increase in pressure inside the pipe, which can cause the pipe to burst. This can happen any time the air surrounding the pipes reaches below freezing. Insulating water pipes can help to prevent them from bursting, but if they do burst, this can cause flooding and result in water damage. Holgates offers an emergency Commercial Plumbing service. Our highly skilled Plumbers can fix anything from minor leaks to replacing worn or damaged pipework.

We carry out one-off Plumbing repairs and installation and can also put together a tailored maintenance programme to suit your individual needs. Contact Holgates by email at or call 01704 880029.
