Electrical Additions & Alterations
It is common for most electrical installations to need some form of addition or alteration during their lifespan. We can help with any type of domestic electrical addition or alteration, from minor work such as adding a new socket outlet, though to more major work such as the addition of a new electrical circuit to better serve your needs.
Before carrying out any additions or alterations on your property we’ll make an assessment of your existing installation in accordance with BS 7671 to ensure that the new work can be added safely. Once we’ve completed your additions or alterations you’ll get a Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificate or an Electrical Installation Certificate depending on the type of work you have had done.
