About

Domestic and Commercial Electrician

I'm an NICEIC qualified domestic electrical contractor, based in Houghton le Spring.

I deal with my customers directly because my reputation relies upon delivering a professional, cost affective and dependable service.

All types of domestic and commercial electrical work undertaken including rewires, consumer units, testing, upgrades, fault finding and general maintenance.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions, I look forward to hearing from you.

Darren installed new consumer unit, add socket to radial in kitchen, earth bonded water and gas pipes, replaced light pendants, light switches, sockets, changed some single to double sockets, led light for kitchen, moved landing light from a dangerous position overhanging stairs (when changing light bulb) to a far more accessible position. Darren cleaned up as he went along, there was no mess. He finished all work so that it looked neat and tidy. The work was done to the agreed date, time and budget. Darren was knowledgeable and suggested different options when discussing the work to be done. Communication was good and timely. Certificates for the electrical work and building regulations arrived shortly after the work was completed. Darren was always good humoured, helpful, friendly and interesting. He was also Alzheimer friendly. A pleasure to have around. We discussed further work - replacement of quiet extractor fan for bathroom, dimmable light and alarms. Would highly recommend. 5 stars.

DWS connected up my waterfall pump and lights in my back garden. Darren was the consummate professional, a genuine good guy and his pricing for the work was very fair. I would not want to engage another electrician other than Darren and I have no hesitation in recommending DWS to anyone looking for great service, excellent professionalism, honest and fair pricing.

Part of a new kitchen installation, Darren advised, checked and certified the new work, and installed a new consumer unit, checking and certifying the rest of the house to finish. His friendly and informative manner made this work largely nondispruptive, and he’s neat and tidy while he works. I’d happy recommend Darren to anyone who asked.

Installed external socket, 3 fire alarms and the door bell. Provided advice on the best choice and location for the alarms. Work done as agreed, on schedule and budget despite a "helping hand" from a 4 month old puppy. Fully recommend.

Darren fitted new bathroom lights, replaced external light on the drive and rewired new switches in the hall. He was on time and very professional. Took his time and delivered a really good job. Would recommend him and will certainly use him for future work.

Our property needed a full re-wire and in total we had 4 electricians come out and quote for this job. We decided to go for Darren as his quote was the best value for money and we were impressed by his attention to detail, the suggestions he made and how he listened to our requests. Darren always worked neatly and was considerate checking in with us when he needed to turn the power off. We had several other trades people on the job, all whom he communicated well with. He always showed up when he said he would and we never had to chase him up. We have no hesitation recommending Darren to anyone.

Darren did a partial rewire, he provided a great service and was really helpful, friendly and very reliable. The quote was reasonable and he answered all my questions (and there were a lot) really well, explaining everything. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and will definitely use him in the future when I need any more electrical work doing.

What work did they do? - I contacted DWS to resolve a bundle of issues during the visit, including a blown fuse, repair of several light fittings & sockets, and some snagging issues from the previous electrician. Was it done to the agreed schedule and budget? - Absolutely. The pricing structure was clear, there were no surprises, and Darren's fee was excellent value indeed. It was easy to make the appmt, Darren attended at the agreed time, and worked efficiently and thoroughly. Communication was refreshingly clear and professional throughout the process. What made the trader stand out? Over and above resolving the electrical issues, Darren was helpful and professional, explained what he was doing, and willingly gave really helpful and considered responses/suggestions to my questions about current and future electrical work needed in the property. He gave valuable advice in relation to wiring of our current solar inverter, and also put me in contact with an electrical boiler engineer able to repair our (unusual) electric boiler. I am relieved to have found an electrician who inspires confidence, and I will certainly contact Darren again for help resolving future electrical issues.

came to give a quote shortly after our initial contact, provided the quote promptly and on acceptance of the quote arranged an early date that was suitable for us. arrived promptly on the day of the work. Worked efficiently without fuss and without mess. explained exactly what he was doing and then performed the work to a high standard. When the invoice followed, it was for the exact amount of the quote... no unforeseen extras etc and was entirely reasonable. I will be using his services again.
