Renovating an old property can be a challenging endeavour, especially when it comes to addressing electrical wiring issues...

Alan, the owner of a city centre Edinburgh townhouse property, sought a reliable team to handle the complexities of updating the out of date electrical infrastructure.

“Andrew turned up and gave me a reliable quote on the original element of the project and I have been using him ever since.”

“The thing with tradesmen is that it’s not down to just the price. You want a team who will turn up when they say they will, and give you good value for money. It takes a lot of time trying to find tradesmen – so when they do a good job – you stick with them!”  

In the original stages of working with Alan we were modernising the wiring and lighting system along with fitting a new fuse box that adhered to modern safety standards.  Since then though we have been back to update their basement and outdoor wiring and lighting systems throughout the house, providing certifications to show that they adhered to current safety standards for their new Air bnb venture. 

“Since taking over the property, it has been a journey of transforming each room into a haven that we could then call our home.  I then retired last year and we then sought to transform the basement into a self-contained Airbnb, which again required the help of others as we updated the utility into a kitchen and lounge area. Andrew and his Lumen team have been with us throughout the journey and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.”
