Essex Electrical Contractors with the highest standards

Customer service IS customer satisfaction

Your custom is greatly valued no matter the size of the contract. Whether it’s the smallest socket change in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex or full rewiring work in a large office block in Central London… you always get a thorough job and excellent workmanship to suit. Because customer satisfaction is hugely important to us. So, what you can’t see will be completed to as high a standard as what you can… making maintenance a doddle.

…and customer satisfaction is Platinum!

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

In the event that your 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 your works compliant. How’s that for peace of mind!

Thank you for ensuring the wiring has been put in very discretely and so the electrical works looks as if it was part of the original building works.

Thank you very much indeed.

    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.
