    From small beginnings to a one stop shop

    From small beginnings in 1979 as sole trading electricians in Southend, Essex, over the years, Blake Contractors Ltd has expanded to incorporate a separate property maintenance / general building works department and alarm and security division (see sister site Blake Fire & Security Systems) alongside the original Blake Electrical contractors.

    Blake Contractors is a one stop shop for building and electrical work. We are able to handle (almost) anything from small repairs to complete refurbishments, both internally and externally and for domestic or commercial properties.

    Blake's say...

    No ordinary contractors, we’re a family-run business who are big enough to cope, but small enough to care. We have exceptional, professional staff, resources and project management PLUS service with a personal touch.

    Ian Blake – Managing Director

    Why you need building and electrical contractors

    As a contractor rather than just a builder or electrician, everything is undertaken in-house. The nightmare of project management with headaches and time-delays from co-ordinating a list of sub-contractors is our issue not yours. Whether that be in your home, your business or schools across Southend, Essex and London.

    Working with Blakes was a pleasure. Unforeseen variations were notified along with suggested solutions and were very reasonably priced first time. Interim claims for payment were fair. The Blake management were always on hand with good suggestions for the works. Blake completed within the programme and within the budget to a very good standard of finish. I/we would welcome working with Blake again.
