My parents are having a complete new oil fired central heating installation - new boiler, new pipework and new rads.
The company is registered with HETAS, OFTEC,CORGI & NICEIC but some of the copper piping is dented, slightly flattened on bends in places and at a couple of points where it will join the radiator the piping is almost the shape of an egg timer. Photos below - I hope.
I have plenty more photos if wanted.
A couple of building contractors doing other work have commented that they have not seen anything like it before - but they were not plumbers - so, any professional advice would be greatly appreciated !

Photos are in my album if you just click on the PipG

I must admit it's not an exam quality piece of pipework, however, I've seen far worse.
However, you must never chase heating pipes into the wall like that - big problems!!
For a start the bricks and plaster will draw the heat out of the pipes and warm up the wall lovely!!.
The plaster will also crack and soon fall off.
So for me the pipework is a pass - but it fails by being chased into the wall which in turn makes it a dogrough job.
Servotech,
