Meet Bob, our Installations Manager
Just as important as getting the right products, is making sure they are fitted properly.
We know that for many people installing a bathroom is one of the more complicated and daunting projects in the home. That’s even before the extra technical considerations that come with making it accessible.
Finding an installer you trust is vital so you can be sure everything is safe, works as it should and is all finished to the highest quality.
That’s why we have Bob.
Bob working in the Fine & Able offices
Bob heads up our installation services and manages our network of trusted installers. Whether you have your own preferred tradespeople already, or would like Fine & Able to fully project manage things for you, we have a simple range of services to help you get your bathroom fitted smoothly.
All Fine & Able designs come with carefully considered layout and product advice, including heights specific to you, layout considerations and specialist products.
We produce the floor plans and technical elevations that can be handed to installers to ensure everything on the page becomes a reality just as it should.
These technical drawings cost £99+VAT and are included in your product quote.
Use your own installer/builder
If you already have a preferred builder who knows you and your home, we are very happy to answer any technical questions they might have during the installation, by phone or email.
Access our Trusted Installer Network
We can introduce you to good local tradespeople who you can be confident are fully trained in installing accessible products and safe Covid working practices.
We will provide you with a quote from one of our approved installers and you can decide if you wish to appoint them.
We only work with professionals who we know will take proper care of your home, leave it clean and tidy and complete the work with the highest attention to detail.
Full Project Management
For complete peace of mind, we can provide a dedicated Fine & Able Installation Manager to support you throughout the build.
Bob, or one of his team, will accompany our recommended installer when they come to your home to survey it, visit again during the installation to ensure it meets Fine & Able standards, and be there with you to sign off the project with the installer when it is complete.
This service is charged at a fixed fee of £500+VAT in addition to installer costs.
A little bit about Bob
When he’s not installing beautiful bathrooms, you’ll probably find Bob out sailing on the south coast of England. Perhaps not surprising since, before becoming a bathroom fitter, he was in the Navy.
He has years of experience fitting bathrooms of every shape and size as well as working with people with a variety of access needs. Over the course of his career, Bob has worked with specialist hoist and bathing companies, becoming an accessibility product expert along the way.
Bob loves good design – especially the kind of modern Scandinavian design you can find on Enki - and has completely renovated his own home in the Kent countryside. As a design lover, he welcomes Fine & Able’s modern take on accessibility. However, it was the ethos of the company that really drew him to work for Fine & Able.
“Fine & Able don’t just think about how a person leans on or pulls up from something, but also how people live with the product longer term and how they transition to using it. Every product in the Fine & Able collection is very considered and longevity is central to their thinking every step of the way”.
