Over the years safety standards have become more stringent and the NICEIC recommend a periodic test and inspection every ten years to make sure everything is still in order, complies to regulations and more importantly, safe. Throughout the life of a house the electrical installation can deteriorate, old rubber cables become brittle and dangerous and have to be replaced, vermin attack cables in the loft space and the DIY enthusiasts and “cowboys” make alterations which do not comply with current regulations.
Some customers call on us to find faults in the home, add more sockets and lights or make electrical repairs. However, our scope of work is not limited to existing houses. Alan Manchip Electrical Contractors can work with your architect or direct for the client to carry out the electrical work for new build houses and extensions to existing houses. If you want an extra socket in the kitchen or a whole new house, we have the qualifications and the expertise to carry out the work.
