Cutting corners with tv aerials

Here we have a job that had been booked in with us and the customer had double booked it and forgot to cancel. That’s life annoying but it happens.

Back down to the job it was meant to be a 2 room new tv aerial installation, if this lasts more than a couple of years without experiencing problems they will be lucky.


They have fitted a MZR 12 TV Aerial on the old rusty bracket which will cause problems in the future as it won’t last.

Next issue they have run a new cable down to half way across the wall and then fitted an indoor splitter with a bit of tape round it, this won’t take long to get water in it and destroy it, also it looks an eyesore, this should really have had an external masthead splitter fitted with 2 cables running down.

As you can see off that picture of one of our installs complete sealed unit no water getting into it.

Before you book with these companies or before you let them carry out a job get the engineer to discuss what he is going to do first.

If you need hell get in touch ask for Andy or Bob.

Another rip off tv aerial

Here is another shocking job we came across today this old lady was charged £268.00 for a tv aerial fitted on a chimney on a facia board bracket, no lashing kit.

The bracket was screwed with 2 screws and 2 red wall plugs this job must have cost about £10.00 not bad profit.

The worse part of it he the lady complained there was a problem so he came out and charged a further 68.00 and didn’t get his ladders off.

If you notice this is how a tv aerial on a chimney should be installed lashing kits actually make your chimney solid and don’t allow tv aerials to fall down.

The company who fitted this should hold their heads in shame based in cheadle hulme.
