I needed a new fuse box fitted but some additional faults were found before the job could be completed.
Outdoor lighting has become very popular in recent years. There are many variants of lighting for your home such as standard security lighting including floodlights, driveway illumination, lighting for decking, lights for summer houses, sheds, a garage or that infamous “man cave”. If you want to go for something a little bit special, you can have landscape lighting which has all the benefits of safety and security but with the correct placement and design can transform your home and the ambience.
Lighting the outside of your property can echo the internal design and décor of your home and can now be regarded as an extra room of your house. During the winter months it can bring a festive mood over the Christmas season and through the summer it can turn your outside areas into a Mediterranean paradise where you can host garden parties and drink cocktails all night.
Outdoor lighting also has a very practical benefit, particularly during the darker, colder months. It will illuminate the ground to prevent you and your loved ones from slipping or tripping.
Even if you live in a safe area, you can never be too careful when it comes to security at your home. Outdoor lighting can help deter criminals and provide you with the ability to see threats before they get to your doors or windows. With motion detector floodlighting, you can be alerted of anyone approaching your property.
When choosing to have any kind of outdoor lighting added to your home, it is important to remember that it will need regular maintenance to check for any exposed or damaged cables and expired lamps. I see many dangerous outdoor electrical works on properties throughout Bexley and South East London. There are increasing numbers of people who are prepared to tinker with outdoor lighting as the perception of fire decreases with outside installations. Remember with outdoor installations, resistance to weather is a must - the correct cables and sockets must be used and these are just the basics.
Once you have had your outside space transformed with your chosen lighting by a qualified electrician, you can then relax and enjoy your social gatherings with friends and family with peace of mind that electrically you are safe.
