Excellent job, competitively priced. Darren works hard and has a lot of jobs to get through, which meant I had to wait a little and adjust appointment times slightly, but I regarded this as a plus because a very good tradesman was fitting me into his busy programme. He is very pleasant to deal with.

I didn't proceed with the work in the end, but I would definitely recommend Darren on the basis of his excellent communications, punctuality when he came to do a quote, and overall he came across as a very reliable and experienced contractor when we met. I will definitely contact him again when another job comes up.

Hi, I'm looking at selling my house soon (I bought as new build in 2000). I had some work carried out years ago which to be honest I had clean forgot about, and I'm trying to figure out if I need a Part P Cert for it ... Looking online I don’t think so, but don’t want any nasty surprises down the selling process so thought best to check. 1. Single Socket Spur In the bed room for a TV Taken from a double socket in the bedroom with twin and earth Goes vertically up in the wall cavity into loft space, across the loft floor for a short distance, then back down into the wall cavity for the new socket behind the TV. Approx. 3 meters I would say. 2. House Alarm Twin & earth Fused spur taken from the lighting ring in the loft. And also feeds the bell box on the outside wall, with the cable running over the loft floor. It was done that long ago I've got no chance of tracking the person down who did it, even if I could remember..... But I’m hoping that there both non notifiable pieces of work so I'm ok for selling my home? Thanks for your time. Fin

    Hi Fin If your house was a new build in 2000 then the cabling to your sockets etc should have black & red coloured cables connecting into the sockets and light switches etc. If any of the extra work you have had done has blue & brown cables connected to the accessories then it is post 2005 and, from how you describe it, should have had a minor works certificate issued. As already mentioned by Nigel, if you get yourself a full electrical installation condition report (EICR) then that will report on the entire electrical installation. Regards Darren

Whenever my shower is switched on to either of the hot (red) options it will cut out a minute later and trip the circuit breaker - this also cuts out a pull cord switch in the bathroom. This doesn't happen when using the cold (blue) setting on shower so is the shower faulty or do i have a more serious problem?

    Hi Alan. It sounds to me like the power rating of the shower is too high for the trip switch (MCB) you have installed. I have to assume that the trip switch you have installed is the correct sized MCB for the cable that goes to the shower, so it's likely you have one of three options to alleviate the problem; (1) continue using the shower at a lower temperature and thus drawing less power. (2) Upgrade the cable & MCB supplying the shower to a bigger size to allow full use of existing shower. (3) Replace the shower with a lower rated KW shower. Option 1 is the cheapest, option 3 the next cheapest.
