Thanks James, We recently bought an apartment in Woodstock that required substantial updating and up-to-date overall safety certification. We needed to junk and dispose of the storage heaters, which were old and inefficient and on a separate tariff, necessitating reconfiguration of the distribution boards We requested substantial rewiring to accommodate two offices and had ordered a ThermaSkirt central heating system that required electrical connections through four separate circuits needing to be chased into the walls, and included wiring for the thermostats. In short, we had a major project that needed an electrician knowledgeable and competent across a range of professional skills. Being new to the area, we researched customer feedback online and were attracted by James Hawtin’s stellar reputation. It proved an inspired choice. Not only did James do a perfect job, amply demonstrating all the relevant skills, but he proved a valuable source of disinterested advice when discussing options. He proved extremely good at problem solving, which saved us a lot of money. Moreover, his social style in the domestic workplace is admirable, unobtrusive and low key, but friendly and available. He works solidly and expertly with visible concentration of purpose and is notably skilled socially, a quiet pleasure to have around the place. We would certainly use him again and would recommend him without reserve.

Third time we've used Hawtin for electrical work and would always recommend him. The only issue is that the more recommendations he gets the less time he'll have for future bookings! They are efficient, really helpful, and tackled some of the unusual electrical issues that we had with an attitude of really wanting to help get them solved. We have an old terraced house with dodgy wiring galore and he is totally uncomplaining about it. Maybe he likes the challenge!

Had James round to do a small lighting job. The job was done well and quickly and price was reasonable. No complaints. He is our go-to electrician now. We recommend him.

James Hawtin fitted 17 ceilings LED downlights for us on 03/09/21. He also changed and rewired a switch plate from a single to a double. He arrived at the time agreed and worked steadily and efficiently. He had to work around a couple of problems (such as metal beams in awkward places) but overcame these difficulties without fuss or complaint. He cleaned up carefully after his work. we are delighted with his work and the fact that he offers a guarantee of one year on his installations. Thoroughly recommend as a reliable electrician.

The electrical work was well done

Two spotlights were upgraded and one extra light added as the cloakroom has been converted to a shower room. The system was then checked to ensure it satisfied the British Standard and I was emailed the certificate. The (very) small print pointed out that the chases would not be made good, but this was not discussed. So two holes were left in the ceiling where the two lights were moved from. The electrical work was well done and the dust vacuumed up.

Hawtin Electrical carried out a full EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) on a 1930's semi-detached house my partner and I are in the process of buying. We also asked Hawtin to inform us of the work that was needed to bring the electrics up to standard. Whilst I have seen EICR reports before, they have never been as professional as Hawtin’s. It was extremely thorough and very detailed to a high standard. They did an excellent job and their service was very professional. We highly recommend Hawtin Electrical.

James has just fitted a new power outlet and cradle to support a cordless vacuum and adjusted wiring in our kitchen. He willingly also advised (over an above what he charged for) on how I could safely wire in a new outside light. He was courteous, helpful and highly competent. Thank you, and we will happily ask him back for any further electrical work.

James' job was to remove a bedroom ceiling light and replace it with a new fitting. He arrived promptly at the agreed time and completed the job quickly and efficiently within half-hour. This is the third or fourth time I've called on James to complete some electrical work and on each time he has done so to the highest standard. I would certainly use him again and would recommend him.

We've had James Hawtin round several times over the last few months to do various electrical jobs around the house (fixing a dimmer switch, wiring a lamp, sorting out some fuse board issues...). He's always been professional and helpful, and has been good at checking up on longstanding problems. His prices are reasonable and he's been friendly and polite throughout.
