What Are Remedial Works?

Remedial work is the process of undertaking corrective actions in order to rectify an issue which could be potentially dangerous or just non-compliant. Remedial work is therefore used to fix issues that arise during your EICR or any other assessments which you may have undertaken on your electrical system.

The team at IPF Electrical are experienced in many areas of remedial work, having worked on a vast amount of projects. We can guarantee that there is no job too big or too small that we cannot handle.

How Much Do Remedial Works Cost?

Our pricing structure at IPF Electrical is based around fixed costs. We understand the need to be transparent. We also never want our customers to feel like they cannot ask us for help. When it comes to remedial work, we are able to show you the issues, and this will relate to a specific fixed cost to ensure there are no surprises.

To further support our customers, we also ensure we take images of before and after the remedial work has been carried out. This way we can build trust, and reassure our clients that work has been completed to a high standard.

How Does This Affect My EICR

During the EICR assessment, there is a grading system to identify which items are more serious than others, Codes C1 or C2 will automatically result in an unsatisfactory certificate, please see chart below. After the necessary remedial works have been completed you will have a satisfactory certificate issued within 5 working days.
