“We manage five blocks of flats in Harrow. Built in the mid-seventies, with little street lighting in the development, a good, reliable security lighting to front and back of properties was urgently needed. DKP Electrics did a totally professional installation. Now everyone feels safer. We have no hesitation in recommending them.”
MJG, Director, Harrow HA2
“We had a new extension built and DKP electrics were recommended to us, they had some brilliant ideas and examples for us to look at. We found them to be the most professional, friendly and reliable electricians, nothing was too much trouble. A fantastic job inside and out.”
Sean & Norma, Sandhurst
“Our house needed a complete rewire. DKP Electrics and their team of workers carried out the work quickly and professionally with minimal disruption, we were very happy with how the job was completed.”
Anonymous, East London
“DKP Electrics have done several pieces of work for us over the years, which includes doing a great job of installing external decking up lighters throughout our garden.”
Mr E.Cummins, N16
“The electrics in my house were, quite frankly, a mess... the tragic result of hiring some dodgy builders! DKP Electrics came around and explained in plain english what needed to be done, and then quickly and efficiently worked through my home to make everything work properly and safely. They are completely trustworthy, reliable and was a pleasure to have working in my home. I thoroughly recommend him.”
Helen, St Albans
“I first came to DKP Electrics through a friend's recommendation and used them for the first time in 2009 to install spotlights in our bedroom and replace our plastic sockets with chrome equivalents throughout our home. I must say the prices are very reasonable and the work was completed to a high standard. So much so that I'm planning to have them assist with some major re-modelling work for our main bathroom in 2013. I highly recommend them for a friendly, responsive and competitively priced service. You won't be disappointed.”
Mr Steven Carroll, Radlett, WD7
“My fuse box kept tripping out the lights, their electrician found the problem and explained exactly what was wrong. I will use again.”
Mrs Landsburg, Borehamwood, WD6
“DKP Electricians rewired my loft conversion with phone line, internet, lights and an electric shower, very pleased, they were very professional.”
Rita Dudhia, Palmers Green, N13
“I was burgled and decided to have cctv installed. I now feel safer and best of all no one has attempted to break in again, my cameras record and i can check them with my phone when I'm out, very happy, money well spent.”
Mrs J Carroll, Kingston, KT1

We have installed LED lighting to create many different lighting effects in sky lights, bedroom cupboards, floating ceilings, bathrooms & mirrors, kitchens, cabinets, gardens, the list is endless. This is one example of LED lighting we installed in a bathroom recessed shelf near Richmond TW9. We can install most colours tailored to what you require including colour changing lighting. These can be controlled via wall switches or smart phone devices, timers or with independent on/off switches.
This is an example of a fuse board (consumer unit) installed in Watford WD18 after fully rewiring the property. The cover has been removed to show you a neat and organised arrangement of the unseen wiring which is a reflection on all the unseen work we carry out. No bodge jobs behind the scenes where the customer can not see the work. We continue this quality throughout all our installation work big or small. This fuse board was particularly restricted on space, there are some more examples on our gallery page & Google listing.
This picture shows 6 LED downlights installed in a dining area with 4 ceiling speakers (only 2 can be seen) in Harrow HA3. We had to adapt the usual layout of the downlights in this to a 2 in 4 out because the joist and wooden noggins inside the the old cottage ceiling were blocking every way we wanted to position the lights, eventually ending up with this arrangement. There are a few clever ways to get around awkwardly positioned joists which we use in these situations to make them look good. The customer was very happy with the end result especially after seeing how difficult it was. All lights fire rated and fitted with LED programmable dimmers.
Here is another angle of the electrics we installed in a kitchen in Harrow, Middlesex. 10 downlights are fitted with a mains powered heat detector and ceiling speakers. The kitchen was new and fully rewired with new socket positions, cooker circuit & appliances. All electrics are installed in compliance with current wiring regulations tested and NICEIC certificated. We also take care of notifying Building Control for all our work where required, so with the electrics there is no other involvement of council inspectors, we take care of it all.
Here are 3 stages of work from a property in Harrow. We started our work once the brick work and roof were complete. At this stage we ran all wiring for electrics. Once we installed the wiring the plastering was carried out. Then the kitchen installed, once the kitchen was in we finish off the electrics, test and switch on, Finished! We carry out all work to a high standard and are professionals in every aspect of the electrical wiring throughout the job. We also carry out many complex wiring jobs to run specialist equipment, so if you have something which might be a little unusual or out of the ordinary, I am sure we can customise the wiring to suit.
We carry out fault finding (diagnostic work) on circuits which are nuisance tripping or where they may show a fault when tested. We would consider this one of our specialist areas and can repair most types of faults, although some faults are unrepairable and can need completely rewiring. In the case above we attended a property in Watford WD19 and located a cable in the wall which had a screw in it, this broke the earth wire within leaving the circuit only half earthed. We were able to find and fix this cable on the day. Always be aware with fault finding, it can be very time consuming work. Always get electrical faults sorted out before any major work is undertaken.
Here we have installed an electric induction hob and double oven in Uxbridge UB10 each requiring their own dedicated power supply circuit. When it comes to installing new electric hobs and ovens, bare in mind you must ensure the cabling can handle the power load of the new appliance, not all appliances have the same power rating. We also install power to gas hobs & ovens which need power for the ignition.
This is an Electric Underfloor Heating mat installed in a loft conversion bathroom near Kensington SW3, not all underfloor heating needs this type of yellow matting but for this particular installation it was used to counter any possible movement whilst the new structure settled over the coming months. If you are having electric underfloor heating installed, make sure it is carried out by a professional installer. Badly installed UFH wont show up straight away and usually surfaces a few years later, it can be an expensive job to make good so get it right in the beginning. We also carry out repairs on faulty electric underfloor heating mats, although they are quite often beyond repair if installed badly. We have specialist in house equipment to help carry out this work.
This was a meter we relocated from a cupboard taking up space in a house in Fulham SW6. We relocated it to a waterproof enclosure outside. We carry out all electrical work after the Electric Supply main fuse head and meter. This covers upgrading/replacing old cloth cabling, splitting power supplies and installing fused isolation switches.
This is an example of LED lighting fitted in 2 separate bedrooms in Rickmansworth WD3. We can install most colours tailored to what you require including colour changing lighting. These can be controlled via wall switches or smart phone devices, timers or with independent on/off switches.
This is an emergency call out we attended on Christmas Eve in Richmond SW14 where the immersion tank burnt out an isolation switch. This was due to the extra usage it was getting because of guests staying for the Christmas Holidays. We also see a lot of burnt out cooker and shower switches where power ratings of the electrical devices are not taken into account when initially installed.
We can install any heating timer, programmer or thermostat you require. Wired, wireless or smart programmers, we have fitted many over the years and have also tailed wiring to suit some high powered commercial switching arrangements. We also work along side highly professional gas installers who we can follow up on this work if it becomes a gas or plumbing issue without you looking for any further tradesmen.
Here we have installed brick lights to a garden wall in Colindale, London NW9. This was controlled via wireless switching to avoid running additional wiring back into the house.
This is an indoor monitor installed in Pinner HA4 with an out side camera bell to monitor people knocking at the door. You can see who is knocking and if you decide to respond to them, talk two way. Door unlocking functions and multiple door bells and monitors are available. There are different types of systems available to suit the individual property as well as CCTV.
This is one example of an old fuse box in operation at a rented property in Fulham SW6. Although we carry many spare & obsolete parts, some fuse boxes just can't be brought up to current standards without replacing. One thing you need to take into account if you still have an old fuse board is although it may still work, tripping times are now faster in new units and will protect you and sensitive equipment from getting damaged in the event of a fault or power serge.
This is an example of old wiring we came across in Eastcote HA4 where you can see the outer red sheaf has become so brittle with age it's cracked. To add, this had an old wooden back box in the wall which could fuel a fire if something was to happen. This property was eventually rewired replacing all wooden back boxes with modern metal types.
Here we installed isolation switches in a commercial building in Watford WD23 supplying power to various parts of the building. This is all 3 phase switch gear and equipment.
This is an example of outside lighting installed for a garden party in Harrow HA1. This is a nice example of where giving your garden some light can bring it to life and extend your living space.
This is an underfloor heating repair we carried out in Ealing W5. We traced the fault to an area under the toilet where the cable from the mat was floating freely across a gap in the sub main flooring. With no screen or adhesive surrounding the cable it burnt out. This is an example of where someone has tried to install electrical equipment/wiring without the knowledge and experience of the job in hand. All our electricians are professional time served engineers.
This is an isolation switch in Kensington SW10 which only on a visual inspection, (which is part of an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) carried out every 5 years on rent properties) was it discovered. It was a rented property we took over work on, which previously had a maintenance company looking after it. This melted cable was festering for quite a while to get to this stage but was not discovered probably due to minimal or inadequate inspection work. Left any longer and it could have resulted in a serious fire in the communal area at the main entrance escape route. We repaired this immediately.
We carry out all electrical work in loft areas safely and are aware of all dangerous present. All of our installation work is left safe even were the customer can not see it, All unseen work is carried out to the same standard as that on show. All electrical connections are completely enclosed, downlights are covered to prevent fires and no work is carried out which may compromise the structure of your roof or ceiling.
Earth bonding to gas & water pipes must be present where ever electric is present whether it is a domestic or commercial premises. Earth bonding is there for safety and can protect you from getting electrocuted. Without earth bonding to gas & water pipes the fuse board may not trip out in time in the event of a fault. If you are unsure we can check this and in some cases test for its presence if it can not be found. As part of this type of work we also check the main incoming earth, it is not uncommon for this to snap off over time or sometimes not be present at all.
This is a marina where we installed a power hook-up point for the boats to plug in to charge batteries and use power whilst docked. This was installed in Harefield Ubridge UB9.
Here is a before and after picture of a fuse board replacement carried out in Uxbridge UB9 2008.
This is an electric underfloor heating foil mat installed for wood flooring in Ruislip HA4. In some cases the mats need to be ultra thin to avoid raising the floor level. If needed, we can install electric underfloor heating mats to tackle this issue.
These are a few examples of old fuse boards which do not have the safety features the current consumer units now have. We test all the electrical wiring prior to this work to avoid nuisance tripping after the new fuse broad is installed. This is because newer fuse boards are more sensitive for safety purposes. We consider it bad practice do a straight forward replacement and would never approach this work without testing first for potential issues.
Here is a damaged cable we were called out to repair in Ealing W5 which was nicked by a lawn mower whilst the owner was gardening. It is a steel armoured cable used for running power outside and can withstand a lot of damage associated with outside activities. This cable was not badly damaged and could be easily repaired. Ideally it should have been buried in this particulate installation.
This is a security light we installed in Watford WD18 with an override function to keep it on throughout the night if needed.
This is a gas hob and cooker extractor fan installed in Ealing W5. The gas hob was installed by a gas company we work closely with, we installed all new electrics in this kitchen including the power supply for the gas hob ignition & extractor hood fan. The extractor hood fan was vented through ducting to an outside wall vent.
This is one of the covers we fit in a loft to prevent loft insulation coming in contact with the top of downlights. Loft insulation laying on hot downlights is one of the biggest causes of house fires. Covers are rarely used by DIY enthusiasts and builders, if you have downlights it is recommended that you get them checked to prevent a potential fire.
Here we installed garden lighting in a North London property and carried out fault finding work on the patio step lights. Once the fault was traced we replaced all faulty wiring and installed wireless switching to control the lights from each level of the house. This was in preparation for summer.
This was a call out in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire WD3, to a downlight not working. Initially this would come on for a few minutes then stop working, then one day stopped working all together. When we removed the fitting we discovered it had over heated and melted the cables in the ceiling. We replaced all of the lights with safer fittings.
This was a call out to a property in Radlett WD7. The socket stopped working about a year before we were called out. We removed it to check what was wrong to find the wires had melted inside. This socket was previously overloaded with an oil heater, and 8 way extension lead which caused the wires to melt. The wires were repaired and a new socket installed.
This is a control panel we installed in brewery in East London when they first started up their business. The panel was salvaged from by the owner from another company and we installed it to run the various equipment used in the Beer making process. This included equipment such as heated tanks, pumps, refrigeration room, waterproof switches & sockets and an office area. We were using mainly 3 phases star delta equipment.
This is a commercial railway arch in East London were we installed 3 phase isolation equipment and many new circuits throughout the premises to power water heaters, pumps, office equipment and a cold room. This was a new business we helped get off the ground and on its ways to a successful future brewing beer.
Here is an example of melted wiring in Watford, Hertfordshire, due to over heating in downlights
This is an example of melted wiring in Ealing due to over heating in downlights
These are 2 Sub main fused switches installed in the basement of a block of flats.
This is a before and after picture of a fuse cupboard we rewired with electrics installed by the owner in the 1940's. It was all original wiring and fuse box equipment. One socket had recently caused a fire in a bedroom. The house in Ruislip HA4 was built by the owner and his friends after work, they use to work in the old Kodak building in Headstone Drive, Harrow, HA1. The picture also shows a close up of the new fuse board with no cover, this is to show neat work on every job where you would not usually look.
This is a kitchen in Ruislip HA4 which we rewired installing new sockets, under unit LED lighting, appliances & LED downlights.
This is a before and after picture of an old obsolete bathroom fan we upgraded. Old fans can be difficult to replace especially when they are so big like this one.
This is an electric underfloor heating programmer which caught fire in Kensington because the mat it was supplying was too powerful. The power requirements for the mat need to be calculated before it is installed. This is not an uncommon sight where someone inexperienced has agreed to install underfloor heating.
