Finding a tradesman for a light switch replacement
It is important to make sure that all of your electrical utilities can function safely, and this includes your light switches. A faulty switch can be more than an inconvenience: it can also be a safety hazard! Alternatively, you may have decided to replace your light switch with an alternative type, such as a dimmer switch. Whatever the reason, you will need to hire a qualified electrician or experienced handyman to get the job done.

What do you need to know about light switch replacement?
Replacing a light switch is a fairly simple job, but there are still rules. The work will need to be done in accordance with Building Regulations in order to make sure the finished product is completely safe. This is another reason to always check the qualifications and experience of your potential hires: the best candidate will know the relevant Building Regulations like the back of their hand.
The cost of a light switch replacement will usually be between £20 and £65. A like-for-like replacement will be the simplest and cheapest option. However, there is a chance that the price will be too low, meaning that your tradesman will charge their minimum callout fee. If this is the case, do not try and argue around the quote, as your tradesman will need to cover their own expenses. Instead, try to think of other jobs that can be done to bridge the price gap.
