As local electrical contractor, Durham Electrics is able to offer a full electrical emergency call out service. This is available for your business premises or residential premises.  Our skilled electricians will get your power back on by either a temporary or permanent fix. However, there are some occasions when a secondary visit will be required or there is a power outage on the grid. In these instances we will always let you know the outcome before departure.

As we carry out work on behalf of British Gas, Axa, HomeServe and others you can be assured that all our electricians are DBS checked. We aim to attend emergency call outs within 4 hours.
