About

My name is David English I have over 20 years experience in this industry. I'm a very hard working trustworthy person and I would treat your property with the same respect that I would my own home.
Most of my work comes from word of mouth and I think that says a lot.
The main services that I provide are the installation of TV aerials and satellite dishes for Freeview and satellite TV (Sky and Freesat)
Before I worked in this industry I worked in the building trade, during this time I picked up a Lot of tips from the trade. This has helped me in many aspects of the services that I offer. Including the demand for people wanting their flat screen TVs hung on the wall, Cables discreetly hidden in the walls and cables put under the floorboards and so on.
Some of the other services that I offer include installing telephone, CAT5 , CAT6 data points.
Installing all your media and data cables during the first fix of your refurbishment then doing the final fix and a signal test at the end of the refurbishment.

David did a great job, even better than I’d hoped for

David created an alcove in an internal wall and attached a 32in tv to an extending swivel bracket so that the tv can be pulled out and viewed from any angle. He communicated with us clearly regarding his availability, made recommendations on the most appropriate tv and once the job was underway got on with it with minimal fuss and mess. When he realised he could achieve a smarter finish to the alcove even though it would take more effort on his part, David went the extra mile and we are thrilled with the result. And he is also a thoroughly nice chap.

New TV/FM aerial and signal amplifier/distribution box.

Our TV/FM aerial had not been working for some time. English Installations identified a fault with our TV signal amplifier/distribution box, which he replaced. He also explained that our existing aerial was too old to receive many current services, and recommended this should be replaced too. They carried out all this work smoothly and efficiently, and everything is now working again. We are very pleased, and would highly recommend English Installations to anyone needing similar work done.

David quoted promptly. He set an installation date, arrived exactly on time and completed the job cleanly, quickly and professionally. I have used his services a couple of years ago and was pleased with that so I was confident he would do a good job this time. Highly recommend.

David provided a fast, efficient and friendly service to review my TV aerial and did the whole job within two hours. What impressed me most was that rather than persuading me to buy a new aerial he reassured me that the existing one was fine and had a good signal. He ran a new cable from the roof into my house and got rid of all the old redundant ones. Thanks David! Sarah P

Dave English reconnected our TV, programme recorders, DVD player and net flix stick all of which were disconnected after an environmental emergency. Service was prompt, on time, efficient and effective. Notes and instructions were drawn up to enable absent family members to follow the set up. I strongly recommend his service.

David replaced our old tv aerial. He turned up at the agreed time and was very careful in taking ladders through the house to access the roof. The work was carried out quickly and efficiently and to the agreed price. David also helped out with a couple of technical tips to make using the TV easier. We were impressed with David’s work and his pleasant and helpful manner - his customers service was excellent. I can strongly recommend David English Installations.

David's approach was faultless, couldn't ask for more. He reinstated a long lost TV reception for my elderly and distinctly non-technical relative with great patience, explaining issues as he worked. I unreservedly recommend.

Efficient, reliable, helpful. And nice! My TV aerial packed up. David sorted it quickly and easily. Options and pricing were clearly quoted beforehand. I then needed a CAT cable running up to my loft, and fast (in the middle of building works) - despite being fully booked, he squeezed me in. I'd recommend him and would use him again without hesitation.

David did the work to budget and schedule. He clearly knew what he was doing right from the start-even if I did not! While he was happy to explain anything I asked I felt that his explanations were a bit rushed the first time he came though that was partly because I gave him a deadline which he had not expected. After his second visit I was starting to feel more comfortable with the setup though Sky still had to complete their side of the work. David was always polite, punctual, helpful and tidy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
