Some people employ single companies who profess to take care of the entire process of converting your loft.
This may seem like the easy option, however having just one point of contact means you may not be speaking to the professional who will actually be fitting your electrical installation.
Due to this, you could miss out on their expert advice during the design stage. This advice can be crucial when helping decide what you need and where you’d like it fitting.
It also makes it more difficult for you to ensure that quality tradespeople are being used throughout.
Sadly a lot of “one stop shop” companies employ subcontractors on very low money which can in turn reflect on the quality of the installation you receive.
Remember, over 90% of your electrical installation is effectively “invisible” behind walls and under floors. You need to ensure that you are using trades you can trust. (This goes further than just the electrics too, other trades play a huge rule in the finished article!)
Whoever completes your loft conversion electrics should be a fully qualified, insured and registered electrician. Before allowing anyone to begin electrical works on your property, you must always check their credentials on the Registered Competent Person website by clicking here.
You will need to use a registered electrician as the installation of new circuits (which will be required for the loft installation) requires a Part P Building Regulations Notification.
