Our History

We’ve been serving the people of Plymouth for more than a decade and in that time, we’ve undergone a lot of changes!

When company director Alex Stevens first founded The Plumbing Doctor, he was a sole trader, working within the Plymouth area. The business quickly grew, becoming a limited company in 2012 with a growing team. Now, The Plumbing Doctor is a thriving and well-established local business, serving commercial and domestic customers across Devon and Cornwall.

Over the years, we’ve been lucky enough to work on a wide variety of plumbing projects, from small projects such as leak detection and boiler repairs to bigger works, like bathrooms/kitchens and repairing parts at a sewerage plant. No matter the size and scope of the project, one thing remains the same – our dedication to providing a professional, friendly and high-quality service!
