Company info


Foundations Up is the general building company associated with the leading home improvement website, DIY Doctor [founded 1999]. We are the team of experts that provide advice to the hundreds of thousands of people that come to the DIY Doctor website every month and so there is very little we have not seen or overcome. Initially we started by doing the odd job to create content (videos, pictures and written instructions) for the website but eventually, word got out and more and more people asked us to help them, so we had to separate the building company from the DIY website.

While here we are advertising for electrical services, we also complete all kinds of building and renovation work. We are particularly proud to have been asked to be the LoftZone Authorised Installed of their award-winning storage system, and have been specialising in fitting loft hatches, ladders and boarding across Bath, Bristol, Somerset and Wiltshire since 2017.

We cover all aspects of electrical work, as well as many other trades that are required for general building. Some of the things we can assist you with include:

• Minor alterations

Electrical condition reports

• Rewiring and major works

• Certification and testing

• Consumer units (fuse boards)

• Kitchen and bathroom electrics

• Loft lighting and power

To have an in-house electrical service means that we are flexible and responsive while maintaining the highest possible standards of craftsmanship. We can take on a significant project involving building and major alternations which other companies cannot, while we also can continue with the smaller projects and minor alterations.

We are so confident in our work that we offer a lifetime guarantee on all our craftsmanship.

For more information about us, please see the Foundations Up website.

Whether it is something small like adding a loft light or a larger project like a complete re-wire, we would love to hear from you.
