Tackling electrical repairs on your own is never advisable unless you have a sufficient level of skill and experience. Whether it is a blown bulb or power shortage, Prestige Skills Ltd has the expertise to assist with any urgent electrical work that is required in your home.
When you call Prestige Skills Ltd, you will be greeted by an electrician wearing a full uniform and carrying an ID that can be produced upon request. All our technicians also drive clearly marked vans, giving you the reassurance that you are dealing with a professional and trustworthy company.
No matter the emergency, we will always ensure that any remedial work is fully quoted and approved by you first.
Because we’re an NICEIC Approved Contractor, any work we carry out is protected by the NICEIC Platinum Promise, as well as our own 12-month guarantee.

At Prestige Skills Ltd, our customers’ safety is the number one priority. We will take the time to conduct an electrical safety test with every callout, to ensure that all electrical installations in your home comply with the relevant safety standards. Our electricians have a duty to inform you of anything that poses a risk to your personal safety – such as exposed wiring or an overheated
fuse – and advise on the solutions available, allowing you to make an informed decision.
At Prestige Skills Ltd, we leave no stone unturned when rewiring a property. The first thing we will do when you call us is establish how soon you need any remedial work completed. If the fault poses an imminent risk to your safety – for example, a sparking fuse box that could result in a fire – we will have an electrician on the scene immediately. However, if you simply wish to repair a faulty plug socket, your need for emergency assistance may not be as high. Either way, we will always work to a time that suits you. Here are some of the most common repairs we can assist with:
A power cut can be annoying at the best of times, but it could also indicate that there is a fault with the electrics in your home. Sometimes it will just be a case of flicking the relevant switch in your fuse box, but if you are unsure of the cause or would rather not take the risk, calling a professional is the safest course of action. Our electricians will be able to diagnose the problem and provide a quick fix, or, if necessary, escalate it to your electricity provider.
If your lights are flickering, buzzing, or not turning on and off, it could mean that the wattage is wrong. Alternatively, there may be a bad connection between the bulb and switch. If replacing the bulb does not help, Prestige Skills Ltd will be able to establish the root cause and get your lights shining again.
If you detect a weird fishy smell from a switch or wall socket, it might mean that the connection to an electrical device’s circuit has been damaged – commonly known as ‘arcing’. When this happens, the electricity will jump to complete the circuit, which can result in a fire. allow us to respond promptly in such cases.
