We found Richard to be an excellent electrician. Richard was very competitively priced, both very proactive & friendly, and also explained in a clear and concise manner the works that were required to be done. Richard completed the works to a very high standard, and we will be using his services again. Rob & Tracey.

Very capable and professional, Richard and Peter attended as agreed, completed the job very tidily and speedily. When an unexpected wiring problem was found, they gave me the opportunity to do some of the prep work myself to save them time and hence of course save me some costs! I would have no hesitation in recommending Galvin Electrical to anyone needing some electrical work done in their home.

Can't rate this company highly enough. Richard and his team were professional from start to finish. I advertised my job on Friday Richard got in touch straight away, I sent pictures & videos of the work I needed doing asap as I didn't want to hold my builder up. Richard sent me through a fixed quote which I was more than happy the work was started and finished on Monday. Excellent.

How much should it cost for the installation of an outdoor plug socket in a small outhouse located adjoining house wall

  • Richard Galvin's Answer
    Tue 21 Jun 2016 16:52pm

    including the waterproof socket approx £100-120 as it will require a minor works certificate as it is a modification to an existing circuit. You will therefore require a PART P electrician holding a relevant competent person scheme membership.

Want to run 8.5kw shower and power points in buildings,,,is it poss to do this??

  • Richard Galvin's Answer
    Tue 21 Jun 2016 14:28pm

    Hi You will need to assess the total load that is likely to be placed upon the circuit and then calculate the size of cable (Steel wire armoured) that is required. because of the distance you need to comply with the current regulations taking into account external influences and the voltage drop that will occur.
