Hiring a tradesman for socket installation

It is important for a room to have as many plug sockets as you need it to, not just for the sake of convenience but also to save you from tripping over extension leads. Luckily, installing a new plug socket, or even converting a single socket to a double, is a simple job for a qualified electrician.

For any job, big or small, can help you find the best tradesman to suit you. The Plentific website can instantly generate a bespoke contact list of the best electricians in your local area, each of which will have a professional profile where you can view their qualifications, past projects and customer reviews. Best of all, each and every job booked via Plentific will be covered by the Plentific Guarantee.

What do you need to know about socket installation?

While you may hear that installing a plug socket is a simple DIY job, the truth is that anything can seem simple to a person who already knows what they are doing! If you do not have experience with DIY, or if you do but you have never worked with electrical utilities, your best guarantee of a good finished job will be to hire a local electrician. It is also imperative that electrical products are installed in accordance with building regulations, which a qualified electrician will be well familiar with. Failing to do so can be extremely dangerous for your property.

The cost of installing a socket can vary depending on the state of your utilities, such as the age of your fuse board. You can expect to pay between £40 and £100 to have a professional electrician install a new single socket, and between £60 and £100 for a double socket. You may be able to save money by having a single socket in your room converted into a double.

One thing that you will need to decide on is whether you are happy to leave the new wiring exposed when your socket is installed. Hiding the new wiring with a plastic conduit is a cheap and easy solution, but for a seamless finish you will need to have the wires hidden in the walls and covered up. Depending on how your electrician does this, you may need to hire a handyman or plasterer to fully repair the wall, and a painter to re-decorate it afterwards.
