Electrical Safety In Your House Or Business

NICEIC logo - The mark of registered electrical engineers

If you are considering doing any work on your home or in your business that involves changing, adding or repairing anything electrical.

DO NOT MESS WITH ELECTRICITY UNLESS YOU ARE QUALIFIED OR COMPETENT TO DO SO  !!!

If you are consulting with any other contractor, electrician or someone has recommended a friend of a friend then please make sure you know they are a qualified and competent individual or company.

Our certified electricians are members of the NICEIC; the UK’S leading regulatory body for the electrical industry.

McGinley’s is registered with The Federation of Master Builders, Trust a mark.gov, and we are fully insured. Our lead electrician is fully qualified, with years of hands-on industry experience in a wide range of electrical projects.  We only work with experienced or qualified suppliers.

We provide quotes and issue contracts, based on the customer’s requirements which makes it clear exactly when projects will be completed, and they include all estimated costs.

Because we’re a family run business, the person you talk to about your electrical needs is the same person who is directly responsible for the work happening as you have planned it.

We create the contract from the customer’s needs and specifications, we deliver projects on time and on budget.  In circumstances where the unexpected happens, we keep our customers fully informed, and they are in control of making the right decision for them.  The work stops until the customer signs an additional works contract, this ensures that you, the customer are in control of the whole project. Unexpected circumstances might include the following examples: no earthing on current wiring system, no earthing on water & gas, electrical fuse boards not up to current building safety regulations (RCD), gas piping not up to current safety standards.   In these types of circumstances, it would be unsafe to continue work as planned, extra procedures would need to be implemented to ensure the safety of all those using the home/building. It is illegal for contractors to carry out work which does not conform to current safety regulations, we take our responsibilities on these matters seriously.

When we survey and we discover things which may be revealed during the project, we inform customers and advise them of any contingency pricing to cover possible additional work.  We take pride in keeping our customers fully informed, we would love to guarantee a price set in stone, but with the nature and variability of houses and buildings, it’s not always possible to estimate every detail, as details sometimes only reveal themselves mid-project.  

Payment is made in stages-we never require full payment up front on any project.  You will pay a deposit to secure the time period of work, this means we block out our diary for your project.  

There are different payment options available, depending on the project.  Smaller projects would normally be a deposit and payment on completion.

Or regular payments spread over the duration of the job- this will be agreed on before McGinleys commence.

For example, if there was a larger project such as kitchen refurbishment (including plastering, electrics, plumbing etc) which might take 6 weeks, total cost was £20k, that would mean a deposit of £2,000, and payments of £2,571 per week, final payment of £2,571. The final payment only happens once all snagging items are clear and the customer is satisfied with the complete project.

We’re here to provide a service to you, to help alter, build or repair your home or business with the skills that have grown and been developed over years of trading in the building and construction industry.  We hope that this page has given you a better insight into the level of service you can expect to receive from us, we look forward to talking to you should you feel we are suited to your needs.  Below are the final few pictures that indicate some of the work we can cover.  We thank you for visiting our site and invite you to click on any of the images below if you wish to contact us.
