Four jobs for a domestic electrician

Are you based in Oxford and looking for an electrical contractor? At Roberts we are members of NICEIC’s domestic installer scheme, and these are the kinds of jobs we do:
Bathrooms and kitchens – from fitting new cookers to installing electric showers, both these rooms require a great deal of attention when it comes to their electrics. Bathrooms and kitchens usually have more high powered electrical appliances than any other area of the house, and often contain some items that require specialist wiring. Domestic electricians will be able to undertake all this plus lighting, ventilation, and heated towel rail functions, for example.
Wiring and re-wiring – updating the electrical system of a whole house can be a big undertaking, but vital if your wiring is old and potentially unsafe. If you’ve just moved house it can be wise to get the wiring checked as previous occupiers may have taken shortcuts with electrical wiring (sometimes literally, where wires cross the wall diagonally, for example), and this may put you and your household in danger.
Extending power supply – whether it’s to your shed, garage, or new extension, our electricians deal with this kind of job on a regular basis. Make sure that any person or company you allow to undertake electrical wiring work like this is registered under the Competent Persons scheme which ensures your work will be certified under Building Regulations.
Fault finding and repair – if you notice anything odd or faulty with your electrical wiring make sure you find a qualified professional straight away. From lights that blow bulbs too often, or don’t come on at all, to sparks from plug sockets, loose wiring or other electrical faults can be dangerous, but are often easily fixed.
