    New double plug socket

    Electricians

    Please can you tell me how much it would cost to have a new double plug socket fitted on a wall to use for a wall mounted TV. It would involve the cables being hidden in the wall and the wall replastered and made good again?

    "It depends where the nearest socket is and if you have the basic safety requirements to make alterations(an RCD and a reliable earth)

    So expect to pay around £65-£100"

    "Hi there,
    I’m Nathan from NK electrical,

    Most electricians will not make good. However some like myself can do that but it’s a lot more time involve and may need to do two coats to make good.

    With that’s being said your looking about £120 to chase and run cable to make good 1 coat about £50. and to come back with a second coat I I would charge another call out free £70."

    "Hi Lisa assuming there’s a socket outlet close by I would say a rough cost of £120 to chase in for a flush finish and a plaster finish (plaster will have to be possibly sanded and decorated by yourself)"

    "Your looking at making a cavity in the wall deep enough to take the cables and mechanical protection (capping)
    So it can take a lot longer

    I would say £100"

    "I would say the electrical side will cost about £285. Including materials you would have to get an estimate for the plastering"

    "Hi
    It depends where the nearest socket in the room
    And how much chasing is involved
    You are looking at 100-160 if you have a socket very close
    Or between 160 -250 if long cable run"

    "Hi Lisa.
    I assume that you
    already updated your electric wiring in place
    My estimate would be 350 pounds included material and skimme the new channel for chasing the cable for new socket."
