Are repairs included in the cost of an EICR ?

If there are any minor repairs that can be repaired quickly, we will carry this out as part of the

EICR to ensure a Satisfactory report  however this is down to our discretion and repairs are not

included in the cost of an EICR. 

An EICR is a thorough inspection and testing process only which will highlight any defects which

may give rise to danger, and remedial works required will be quoted for, and this is completely up

to you if you go ahead with the EICR contractor or another electrician of your choice, however they

will need to provide an installation certificate to confirm the remedial works have been carried out,

this must be kept along with the original EICR
