1. How do we know if we really need a rewire?
The condition of the installation will depend on its age, the level of wear and tear and the quality of the original installation. It is often the case that installations carried out as long ago as the 1970’s can be brought up to current standards without the upheaval and cost of a rewire. We can advise on the most cost effective way to bring your installation up-to-date.:

2. How can we be sure that you know what you are doing?

This is an important question that more people should ask before committing to electrical work. Natec Electrical Solutions are approved by the The Electrical Contractors Association and Part 'P' ELECSA. This means that we have demonstrated that our work is of the highest standard and that we have the qualification and resource to maintain that standard. We undergo an annual review by an ELECSA engineer who can select and inspect various types of our installations at random.

3. Do you belong to any Electrical Industry Associations ?

Yes we are members of the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA).  This association monitor's the work of its members and are there to advise and assist the electrical companies to carry out good work. The contractors work is randomly checked and if shoddy work is found, that contractor will not be allowed to be a member of that association.
