Joel sorted out some problems after building work left us without lights in several rooms. He was quick to respond to the query, clear and transparent about his pricing and easy to arrange a date with. He was on time, friendly and helpful, explaining the problems he found along the way. Thankfully an easy job for him, which he carried out quickly, efficiently and professionally. Highly recommend, and have already recommended to friends locally.

Thanks so much for the review. Discussing technical issues and solutions to customers without it sounding like gobbledygook can be challenging. It's good to hear you felt that I was able to communicate with clarity. Thank you for recommending me.

Joel just fitted a new cooker hood after our old one broke down. He came to check out the job and gave helpful advice on what to order. He came to do the job itself very promptly and worked with care on a tricky fit. Everything was left very tidy afterwards. I would recommend Joel highly.

We recently purchased a Victorian conversion flat, and Joel has performed a number of jobs for us, including installing lights and electrical sockets, relocating a fuse board, running ethernet cable, and more. Throughout, he has been fast, professional and cost-effective. He's also just a generally nice guy. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

I contacted Joel to replace a socket, broken extractor and faulty kitchen lighting. He responded straight away, turned up on time and was very easy to deal with. He made really useful suggestions about how the lighting could be improved aesthetically and made more efficient he then quoted for the job the same day. On the day the work was to be done, he arrived again on time and completed the work without a hitch and with no mess left. I received the certificate for the work the same day it was completed. Joel is very friendly and helpful and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him in the future and can heartily recommend him.

Asked Joel to quote for both some works to the common parts of my block (lighting upgrade and integrated smoke alarms) as well as some lighting repairs and upgrades to my own flat. Joel was responsive from the first enquiry (not every contractor I contacted bothered to reply either way); turned up as expected to quote, clear and helpful in discussing the work required and how to resolve issues in the most cost effective way. Transparent, reasonable pricing. Pleasure to have in my home, very tidy and diligent. Got the job done exactly as I wanted. No hesitation in recommending him.

I would highly recommend Joel: his work is highly professional, he does the job and also goes the extra mile. He is extremely helpful and explains everything very clearly. Given electricity is a very important and risky thing, it is important to feel you are in safe hands. Joel is a rare find and I hope he never leaves the country!

Joel turned upon time each day and finished the agreed scope of work exactly when he predicted. I greatly appreciated his honesty and transparency throughout, especially when telling me that certain things I asked about where in fact not needed (an apparently rare quality nowadays). I couldn't recommend him enough, and will use his services again in the future.
