We bought a house that needed a complete renovation. We knew that the electrics were in a mess so we engaged an electrician who only carries out electrical reports to assess the house. He left a long list of required changes and said that the house needed re-wiring and a new fuse box. We asked Ian to give a quote for the re-wire. Ian highlighted the same problems but said that some of the items required by the earlier electrician applied to commercial not domestic properties under current regulations. We thought that seemed encouraging and suggested he had good current knowledge. Ian is also friendly, has a positive attitude, inspires confidence and explains things in an understandable way. He carried out all the work required and according to timetable and was generally helpful and thorough. We discussed where new light fittings, sockets and switches should go and we have found that all his suggestions were good and we now have light switches where they are more useful. Whilst Ian was working on the electrics we also had a plumber who was installing the new bathroom so they had to work together around the electrics. The plumber commented to me (sounding impressed) that ‘Ian does things by the book doesn’t he’. I heard that the plumber later asked Ian to carry out re-wiring at his own house, so I thought that was another vote of confidence. We have since had Ian back for some other electrical work and we will be happy to use him in the future.

Ian completely rewired a large house in West Ealing; he worked to a very high standard, was punctual, reliable and the work was reasonably priced. I highly recommend him.

Ian not only booked me in at short notice, he was also kind enough to give me an out of usual hours appointment due to my work commitments. Courteous, efficient and reasonably priced, he comes highly recommended in my book.

Ian arrived on time, he is courteous and pleasant to deal with. Nothing is too much trouble. He sorted out a problem that others had failed to diagnose or cure. Very highly recommended.

Ian completely rewired my newly purchased flat, fitted LED spotlights in the hall, bathroom and kitchen, fitted smoke and heat alarms, carbon monoxide alarm, bathroom fan, and electrical work in the newly fitted kitchen and worked well with the heating engineer and kitchen fitter. I wholeheartedly recommend him and he's very pleasant to have around.

I asked Ian to bring my elderly friend's home up to current electrical standards and fit a new socket. Ian was professional, worked non-stop, did it all for what I thought was a very fair price and sent all the necessary paperwork and certifications through really speedily. However I was most impressed by his behaviour towards my friend who has dementia and finds changes in her routine and strangers on the premise, stressful. Ian was endlessly kind and courteous and didn't mind her constant interruptions at all. He explained he had an elderly relative who was confused and was used to doing things for her and experiencing the tensions this sometimes causes. Highly recommended.

I have employed Ian before so, when a smoke alarm problem popped up on Monday afternoon, a quick call to Ian followed by an email with the details sent him dashing into action. Ian viewed the situation, recommended alternatives and, by Wednesday had got all the parts and fixed the problem, all neat and tidy and no mess. He also pointed out some things that were needed to meet current electrical safety regulations and he sorted those as well. Ian explained everything and made sure the equipment instructions were handed over and noted. Fantastic. A top notch trader whom I can heartily recommend every time.

Ian supplied and fitted 3 out of date mains connected smoke alarms for me, fixed 2 outside lights and tidied up my fuse board. He came round when he said he would, went and bought the alarms and came back and finished the job quickly. All without fuss and at a reasonable price. This is the second time I have used Ian and I have confidence in his skill and competence and would not hesitate to use him again and recommend him to others.
