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.
