James was employed to do a complete rewire of a 1960's bungalow. He is a very conscientious worker who always arrived on time and often worked late to get the job done. He is a very polite and thoughtful young man whose main aim was to do the job as we wanted it done. However he was not afraid to make suggestions, which often were better than our own. He did a very good job for a very sensible price and we have no hesitation in recommending him to any future employers.

I can't really put a rating as Macs Flooring didn't fit it but i wish they had as the man that did it was rubbish and I'm totally fed.

We have worked with and alongside various reputable companies for the past 10 years. We cover all aspects of electrical testing, installation works and fault finding. We provide a very reliable service with reasonable quotes.

These guys are top of their game! I needed a full 3 storey house rewire! 1st 2nd fix. ASAP! They were on site within 24hrs. Stayed in digs to get the job completed. These guys worked with my team and nothing was a problem. At the end of it all they issue you a pass certificate. I will be using these guys in the future. You need good sparkys fast and reliable, then these are your boys!

My name is Ian Stewart and I have been a self employed tiler for the last 12 years. My specialities are in Travertine, and reproduction Victorian floors. However I am more than happy to tile floors, bathrooms, kitchens and conservatories.

Jamie, the boiler was not on the quote because the boiler was not broken - its a brand new boiler and was working fine until you "fixed" the downstairs socket by taking the feed to the boiler and putting it to the socket leaving me with a working socket (great!) but no boiler (not so great). You can't fix one thing by breaking another and expect me to be pleased with the result. You only had to come back three times because you kept leaving mid job because of some crisis.

I am a limited company with 14 years of experience specialising in CCTV/aerial/satellite/network & AV installations. I will provide a free no obligation quote & have flexible availability to suit your needs.

Joe did a great job, he is friendly and knowledgeable. Quote came in fast which was a very good price. He was available within the same week to install the screen and projector. Cables were tidied away neatly and left the area clean and tidy. Very happy with the result. I would recommend his services.

The work was completed to an excellent standard and they always left the house clean and tidy at the end of every day taking away any rubbish with them. I highly recommend Paul and his team .

Really quick reply which I needed to enable me to exchange on my new house. The sellers were satisfied with his work and quote for a new consumer unit and asked him to do it, again really quickly.

Charlie responded to an emergency call for a lighting problem. He did a very good job and as a result I agreed for further work to be done that was needed. This was back in March. It is now July and as yet no work has been started despite agreeing to dates which Charlie has changed and put back. Whilst I would recommend his work, sadly his organisation, planning and committment lets him down. Be aware of this.
