Light switches are mostly functional. But if the basic variety in white plastic feels a bit plain, you can opt for something more decorative and stylish. Replacing a light switch involves working with electricity, so to keep you and your home safe, we recommend getting a Part P qualified electrician out to help you.
After switching off the mains power, your electrician will isolate the circuit and unscrew the faceplate. They’ll pull the cores from the terminals and connect these to the new switch. Once they’ve secured each connection, they’ll push the cable back into the mounting box and fit the new faceplate. Lastly, your electrician will switch the mains power back on and test your light switch before they go.
We make sure our tradespeople abide by the highest levels of service and standards – both in work and demeanour. They are honest and fair and will always give you a quote before starting the work. If they’re running late for some reason, they’ll let you know in advance and call before they arrive. All our Local Heroes are polite, friendly and will treat you and your property with respect. Our team vets every single one of them to make sure they have the right qualifications, skills and tools to do the job quickly and professionally.
Your electrician will keep you posted throughout the job, so you’re never left in the dark. Our platform also makes it easy to pay – simply use your debit or credit card to settle up online and we’ll guarantee the work for 12 months.
