UK electricians claim that fixing dangerous botched DIY jobs accounts for a quarter of business

Business is booming for UK tradesmen due to Britain’s do-it-yourself attitude, according to a new survey. Commissioned by leading business insurance broker, Swinton Commercial, the snap-shot study, which took a sample of 100 tradesmen and women from across the UK, found that over 60% of UK electricians reported that callouts to repair failed DIY attempts accounted for up to 25% of their workload, while 27% said they could account for as much as 45% of callouts.
