David called me morning of 27/08 reference my request for an electrician. He agreed to visit that morning and within one hour he had fully rectified our problem by replacing the light switch in our bathroom. The work was performed swiftly and efficiently at reasonable cost. We have added a new name to our list of reliable services.

Was contacted by David from WG Electrical within a day or so of posting on Rated People. The work was carried out promptly, to a very high standard at the agreed price and everything was left clean and tidy. I will be recommending WG Electrical to my friends.

A 3 bed house, not a rental property. The electrician said that without 3 fire alarms (kitchen, entrance and upstairs landing), the council will not pass the electrical conditional certificate. Is that possible ? right price ? cannot battery powered fire alarms be used ? Thanks

    There is no obligation for a private house owner to install heat/ smoke detectors entirely their own choice The council has no input to an electrical condition report it is purely what it says it is An Electrical Condition Report and nowhere in BS7671 does it state that smoke alarms need to be installed other than when the house has been Rewired or under gone other major renovations Your insurance company may offer reduced premiums if they are installed Regards David

Hi. My GF and I have just bought our first home, a 1950s former council house. We began preparing the property for redecoration last week e.g. stripping walls and ceilings before today an electrician mentioned the risk of asbestos in artex. We had a full survey of the property carried out before purchasing and the surveyor didn't specifically mention this was a problem (although he isn't ARCA trained). I am now somewhat concerned. The ceilings I have stripped already were papered and looked like they had been painted over. The others look like they are painted straight onto the ceiling. Is there a cheap way to tell if they contain asbestos or not? Cheers

    If any of the houses still belong to the council they will be able to tell you if the contain any asbestos Sometimes asbestos cement boards were used for ceilings if you look under the floor boards upstairs you can see if this is the case Regards David
