Electrical Inspections in Sheffield

Rewiring a property is one of the largest maintenance jobs home owners face and possibly the most disruptive to the existing interior decoration. Good maintenance, upgrades and frequent inspections can stretch the need for homeowners to undertake such a large rewiring job. It’s broadly considered that most properties should be rewired every 25 years, however as previously explained with good maintenance and regular inspections homeowners could expect up to 40 years hassle free.

Inquiries have to be made to the person responsible for the electrical installation with regard to the provision of diagrams, design criteria, electrical power supply and earthing preparations.
Diagrams, charts or tables need to be accessible to reveal the type and composition of circuits, identification of protective units for shock protection, isolation and switching and a description of the system used for fault safeguard.
I needed some second fix works carrying out including sockets for appliances and a couple of light fittings installed including 4 spotlights. Chris was unable to install the sockets because the wall was lined with plywood (I did not make Chris aware of this) Chris did however successfully install the socket for the fire and fit the two light fittings in the dining room and landing. The spotlights in the kitchen were fitted but it doesn’t appear a hole saw was used on the newly plastered ceiling and there has been a LOT of making good to do (plaster repairs) around the fittings which isn’t ideal.
He was punctual, polite and tidied up when he had finished, he even made a fuss of our little dog! We were having our cooker connected, having just moved in. I thought the price was a bit steep at £45, considering he was only here for ten, fifteen minutes, but appreciate that it is quite probably the going rate for the job, and we needed it doing ASAP. We would definitely ask him again if we need anything else doing, but I would get a couple of other quotes as well.
