Most of our work comes from previous customers or referrals to family and friends, underlining the quality of our work and competitive rates.
We are also trusted by major insurance firms for commercial work including full property renovations following a claim.
Working outside the construction industry, it is a daunting prospect trying to project manage a complete house renovation and extension which would double the size of the property – especially if you happen to be living in the house at the same time with your partner and two young children. It was vitally important that when we started such a large and disruptive project, the people I had working for me were competent, trustworthy, accommodating and approachable. Having had tenders and initial visits from a number of local electrical contractors, New Wire met all of our criteria while being highly competitive on price.
During the initial stages, New Wire sat down with me and while I shared my vision to retro fit and introduce CAT 5e networking capabilities, multi room media, new alarm system, CCTV, thermostatic controls for soon to be fitted water based under floor heating, as well as new lighting, electrical sockets, rewiring and a new circuit box. I put forward plenty of ideas to which New Wire suggested the various ways to achieve what I was looking for along with feedback on ideas where I was looking for advice – advice which was invaluable.
As my family and I were still living in the house, different phases of the house needed to be completed at different times, therefore I could plan most of the times when I felt we would require New Wire’s involvement – however sometimes surprises came up, and when I spoke to New Wire at the offset, they promised that I would never have to have a builder stood around waiting for anything New Wire were involved in – and they were absolutely true to their word. Even when the unforeseen happened – I would call up New Wire with as much notice as possible, explain any deadlines and they would fit me in. The service was better than I could ever imagine and certainly took away a lot of stress.
It really is like dealing with old friends whenever I phone up and ask for that “extra security light” or “additional socket”, and nothing is any trouble.
I recommend New Wire to all my family, friends and colleagues without a second thought. I simply would not trust my wiring and electrics with anyone else.
Kevin Hayward of New Wire Electrical undertook and project managed the full and total refurbishment of our property in Chesterfield during Oct/Nov 2012.
A small kitchen fire had caused a huge amount of smoke damage and as a result the whole house needed:
Total re-wire and new consumer unit
All new double glazed windows and doors
All new internal doors
All new laminate and hardwood flooring
Clean out and replacement of loft insulation
Total new bathroom suite and tiling
Kitchen taken back to brick, re-plastering and ceiling
Fitting of new kitchen including integrated appliances and all tiling
Total house clean and re-decoration
We also discussed with Kevin of taking the opportunity of replacing the old central heating system with a new combination boiler and radiators.
Kevin spent time, prior to the project’s start, with us to discuss what our requirements and wishes were, discussed design elements and gave us excellent advice on all aspects of the project.
All of the work was undertaken exactly as agreed and exactly on time. Kevin understood the need for speed as well as quality as our daughter and grandson live at the property and had to move in with us until it was finished as the house was deemed uninhabitable. Kevin specified 6 weeks from start to hand over of keys and we received the keys one day early! Kevin kept us up to date with the project all the way through and ensured any small issues that came to light were discussed and agreed with us at all times. The house was finished to a very high standard and had been thoroughly cleaned after decoration before handing the keys over to us. We, and our daughter, are ecstatic at the results.
We had no qualms about putting the whole project in Kevin’s capable hands and I would wholeheartedly recommend him and his team to anyone needing anything from a whole house job such as ours to a small one off job. We have subsequently used Kevin and his plumber on a couple of small jobs at our other property.
