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.

Whenever it rained etc our freeview would pixelate or disappear entirely. I was sure that it was because the cable from our aerial was not great. I also wanted to get another TV aerial socket installed in our front room because we currently run wires from our one internal socket around the house. We got one estimate from another trader who quoted for going up to the aerial to check/replace and run a new cable from the aerial to the front room. Their quote was very expensive. I asked David to come over and he was very responsive and came over quickly. He took a completely different approach and measured the signal at various places. He confirmed that it was the cable and that he could fix it without going up to the roof. He also confirmed that we didn't actually need another internal socket (unless we really wanted one). He fixed it there and then and did it while my boys were running amok. David is honest, good value and a nice guy.

David installed a new aerial socket on the other side of the room to my existing aerial point, which involved identifying the correct cable coming off the roof aerial, splitting the cable and drilling through the outside wall. Everything was done with minimal disturbance, expert knowledge and a high standard of care all round. Would recommend.

David English solved a problem my daughter-in-law had with a new Sky HD box not working within an existing, extensive distribution system. He was pleasant, came across as honest, and provided a very good service at a good price.

David made good suggestions using his skills in satellite, wall TVs and other system installations on how to optimise my cable set up for cable TV, terrestial and broad band prior to completing a neat job of installing a home cable management system.
