We just moved into a new house in Muswell Hill and have had BT Vision installed - but can't get the Freeview channels as the cable from the TV aerial doesn't have the correct connector to plug into the back of the set-top box (and needs extending). There may be further problems with the aerial, as I'm unable to test reception. So best case scenario is a new bit of cable plus the connector; worst case scenario is a new aerial.
In a word: brilliant. Job carried out quickly and to the agreed quote, even though the work turned out to be more complicated than anticipated. Really polite and friendly - would have no hesitation in recommending his services.
I live in a modern-ish (built about 1999) flat an a purpose built low level block in Friern Barnet. I have recessed ceiling lighting, 240v, throught the flat. One of the lights has started recently to continuosly trip the fuse out in the consumer unit. I reset the fuse, turn on the lights and it goes again immediately. I am pretty sure it is down to one particular fitting. A builder friend who is not an electrician says that he thinks that as the fitting gets hot it burns through the insulation on the wires carrying the current and if they touch the fitting they short out. that's just his guess but reckons it's not an uncommon explanation. Who can help?
The job that needed doing was a pretty simple one but I am not an electrician so I found Graham on this site. I described what was going wrong with my lights over the phone to him. He turned up when he said he would, fixed the problem quickly, with a minimum of fuss. He didn't try to sell me anything i didn't need. He was polite, good value for money and I would use his services again happily. Thanks Graham.

Just a N.I.C.E I.C Cert required for a 2 bed flat in North london-N10 as old one expired.is price £130-150? please quote. Flat sold so no work creators please.
Wrong N.I.C.E.I.C. Cert with false report, I specifically asked for "no job creators" and got a dishonest job creator who put no labelling on my consumer unit when there was clearly labelling etc I had to send photos to his wofw and she had to get him to re write a new electric cert. He caused me a lot of stress. One of the most annoying tradesman i have ever come across in 18 years as a landlord in london. Andy Skipwith will verify that I am very honest and helpful and decent but this trademan made me boil
