Electrical Contractors with the highest standards

Your custom is greatly valued, so no matter the size of contract, from the smallest socket change to full rewiring work, you get a thorough job. What you can’t see will be as high a standard as what you can, making maintenance a doddle.

Critically, with NICEIC and Part P Domestic Installer accreditation, the electrical projects we design, install and commission have to be of the highest standard to comply fully with appropriate legislation and the NICEIC Platinum Promise.

In the event that the NICEIC registered installer is no longer able to rectify work that is unsafe or does not meet the required regulations, NICEIC will commission remedial work to make the work compliant.

Your willingness to tackle an assortment of tasks – extensive, complex or small – with prompt , pleasant and reliable attention from the staff in your office and those working in my home is as always much appreciated.

    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.
