I need an Electrical Inspection and safely certificate for letting my house in Patchway to the local authority.
I am sure that I will need work doing as I have an old style fuse box and most houses seem to have trip switches now.
This tradesman appeared helpful and good value but the work he carried out was exceedingly poor. He caused unnecessary damage to my property which he refused to repair or acknowledge that there was any damage done. The work he did carry out was poor and a number of mistakes were found. He also charged for work charging for new sockets that was not needed. The work he carried out took nearly twice as long as expected and there was no communication during the work.
When I raised the issues he became abusive. Richard
Paul was very professional from start to finish. He helped me save over £100 by suggesting an alterantive to what I had chosen, which has worked out much better than I thought.
He tidied everything up and left the job complete.
Will choose him again for any jobs I need in future.Helen
