  • Rewiring detached garage

    10Verified Review

    I had an outline idea of what was required but James put forward helpful suggestions. I had a vague plan for installing power down to the end of the garden at a point in the future which James took on board by providing a solution which could accommodate such a development but without unnecessary cost and complexity right now. James installed the new wiring to my kitchen refit a couple of years ago. In both of these instances I found his prices to be fair and he completed what he said he would do in a timely manner.
