What do you need to know about garden/ outdoor light installation or repair?
When having outdoor or garden lighting installed or repaired it is important to make sure your tradesman is a qualified electrician. Your job may well require the installation of new sockets or changes to your circuits, so avoid hiring a cowboy. A good sign to look for is whether or not your tradesman is part of a national electrician’s organisation such as the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC). If you have never had outside or garden lighting before it is a good idea to get your property assessed, since this will highlight if any significant work needs to be done.
For installation work you will usually be charged by the hour, so make sure your choices have an accurate idea of the job at hand. You will also be charged for certain items such as new sockets. Remember that when you get a quote you want a solid quote, not an estimate. Alternatively you may be charged per light. The cost of repair work will depend on the cost of any necessary parts. Remember that with garden related work tradesmen are usually swamped during the warmer months, so you can usually save money by having installations done in the winter.
