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.

Replaced the indoor cable, which had been cut when a door frame was replaced. Diagnosed the problem and re-routed the cable through the door frame and around the room to be as unobtrusive as possible. Removed the old cable and left the room clean and tidy. A professional, helpful and friendly service.

David English of ENGLISH INSTALLATIONS assessed where an updated Virgin Media WIFI system and telephones would need to be installed. He arranged to bring the necessary cable and equipment to upgrade the existing system. He provided an estimate of the cost via email and we agreed to proceed. Mr English arranged the date for upgrading the system and arrived promptly, worked efficiently, explained exactly what he was doing as the work progressed. We found Mr English focused, helpful--especially as we are not up-to-date about the current WIFI and telephone technology. He told us to get back to him with any queries or problems. So far, so good! But should we need to contact him with questions--etc--he said he would be happy to be available.

We have used David English twice now in the last 6 months to install/setup internet in our house. On each occasion he has been outstanding in terms of experience, knowledge and ability, costs and helpfulness. Wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

David was very prompt in his response. Initially, he tried to help over the phone but when that did not work, he came and found the problem which he solved quickly. He is polite and was careful to wear a mask inside the house.

David replaced my terrestrial and satellite aerials/dishes, mounted them in a new better location, and installed 5 new TV points throughout the house. He worked quickly and effectively, and was both tidy and friendly. The charge was exactly what he had estimated, and I would unhesitatingly recommend him. The market in aerial replacement/installation is in my experience often like the Wild West, with false estimates, broken appointments, and shoddy work. I'm glad I found English Aerials!

My mother lost her TV reception last week. I telephoned Mr English on her behalf. He diagnosed the problem accurately and promptly and it was resolved the very same day. He was extremely courteous, helpful, competent and efficient and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Very reassuring to find that a completely unknown can turn out so well. David came as agreed and once I had explained my requirements he very efficiently did everything as asked. Was happy to have him in my house, he cleared up any debris and took photos of the roof aerial, before and after, so I could be assured he had carried out his work as asked. It is always good to have photos. He thoughtfully placed the new wiring from the roof into my house so I don’t have too much wiring to look at from my garden. I will be in touch with him again to sort out my TVs once I have bought a new one. Very happy to recommend.

Contacted David English on 17.03.2021,replied immediately, I needed a new aerial fitted to which David said he could try and fix or replace with a new one, very reassuring to be given 2 options, with 2 price estimates. I took the latter, David arrived on time, quickly to see what the problem was and did the work very efficiently, he did a great job. I trust David completely and would not hesitate to recommend him or if I needed him again. His work was also guaranteed for 5 years.
