About JK Electrical

I began a four-year apprenticeship in 1976 and became a time-served electrician in 1980. I was fortunate to have worked with 'old school' electricians who not only passed me their knowledge, experience and expertise, but who also taught me the intrinsic value of always taking pride in the quality of one's workmanship. As can be verified by the testimonials provided on this site by many satisfied customers, my workmanship is of a high standard and I am always striving to achieve excellence in my work and in the level of customer service that I provide.

I'm BS 7671 qualified and possess additional qualifications in inspection and testing of electrical installations. All work undertaken is carried-out in full compliance with the IET 17th edition (third amendment) wiring regulations.

While I'm happy to provide customers with a rough estimate of what the potential cost of a job is likely to be, I cannot provide fixed-price quotations for any work other than Electrical Installation Condition Reports without having first carried-out a visual inspection of your existing electrical installation.

F.A.O. Landlords .....

If you are looking for an approved electrician to undertake an Electrical Installation Condition Report, I draw your attention to Annex A of the Scottish Government's Guidance on Electrical Installations and Appliances in Private Rented Property. As per the guidance, if the electrician carrying-out the EICR is not either SELECT or NICEIC registered, they should then be able to satisfy all ten conditions as listed on page 13. If they cannot do so, they should not be considered competent to carry-out Electrical Installation Condition Reports.

Documentary evidence of my competence to carry out Electrical Installation Condition Reports for the purposes of assessing the safety of electrical installations, fittings and fixtures in private rented property can be supplied on request.
