There was always great communication surrounding job. Responses to questions we had were always very quick.We vacated the property for two weeks whilst work was done.

Following the installation of a new boiler, the electrical configuration required rewiring to enable the generation of heat for the room radiators and hot water cylinder, both independently and together. Mike was excellent at communicating the electrical requirements with myself and the boiler engineer (Simon, Sygas Ltd). Now in my mid-seventies, it is a relief not to be facing another winter without heating. Mike is a very professional and experienced electrician and I thoroughly recommend him.S SolomonS Solomon ★★★★★ I recently bought my first home (a flat) and it needed quite a lot of work doing. Including a re-wire, new electric heating, kitchen, new flooring, wallpaper stripping, plastering and painting. Mike from Amara Electrical Contractors was the exceptionally professional and put all of the contractors I had to deal with over approximately a 5 month period to shame. Mike completed a re-wire, installing a new fuse box, installing electrical appliances for the kitchen, removal/disconnection of old storage heaters and installation of new lights, where needed. He was extremely polite, and alway happy to fully explain a situation before expecting me to make a decision. The work was always done to a high standard and always taking into consideration that he was ultimately working on my home. I felt he understood that it's not just a job and for the customer, they want their home to be looked after. He was always happy to answer my questions along the way and always kept me updated. I would definitely recommend Mike (and Amara Electrical Contractors) if you want to know you'll get a professional job done.Helen SolomonHelen Solomon ★★★★★ I have used Amara several times for several different jobs and Mike has always done a great job to a high standard of work.

I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.Ann TavernerAnn Taverner ★★★★★ Mike has been extremely helpful with an intermittent fault. Came very quickly and has given good advice without charging. Willing to come back again if the fault reoccurs.

Highly recommended!Paul MaunderPaul Maunder ★★★★★ Mike was a pleasure to deal with from the initial quote to the finished job. His quote was the best value and was given to us the same day as he came to look at the job. We wanted a rewire of the downstairs sockets and some lighting putting in, everything was done to a very high standard and a few issues with our existing wiring were dealt with in a professional manner. I'll be going to Mike again for any future work I need doing 🙂Marianna BebuMarianna Bebu ★★★★★ Mike recently completed a full re-wire on our house and we are delighted with the results. From our first email, to saying goodbye he was polite, contentious and hard working. Mike originally undertook an electricity report for us which raised a few issues, including how we had numerous 'dead' plugs and how our electrics were at least 35/40 years old. We then decided to upgrade the whole system by undertaking a re-wire (inc. patch plastering) and installing outdoor lights plus two smoke detectors. He explained everything in enough detail to ensure we understood the process and no silly questions were too silly! He responded quickly to all our enquiries and kept us updated throughout the work. We will certainly look to hire Mike again to help us when we undertake any further electricity work.
