— SINCE 2008 —

Sparktacus is a friendly, professional electrical company with integrity
and flair who genuinely care about their customers.



Our staff have a broad skill set and whilst our bread and butter is rewiring, modernising and maintaining domestic and commercial premises of all sizes and types, we also fit fire and security alarms, provide custom audio/visual installations, and we can supply and fit data and telephone systems. Oh, and did we mention lighting? It's our 'thing'.

Our Background

Based in Sussex we can cover a large geographic area for major projects extending to London, Kent and the whole of Sussex.

My electrical career started with a multi-disciplinary apprenticeship in a nuclear power station in the late 80s, I’ve also had a brief attempt at pop stardom and a short stint as a beetle geneticist! I started Sparktacus in 2008 and have watched the company grow steadily ever since.


Roger is an experienced electrician who has previously worked in communications, with stints working for BT as well as a career in sound engineering. Rog is a VW enthusiast and a bon viveur!


Sam's the newest member of the team and currently a second-year apprentice following a stint in the British Army. Sam is something of a music obsessive and part-time biker.
  • We have had various bits of work carried out at our home. All of it has been done to budget and with a friendly competent approach. I recommend Paul and his business.

Sparktacus offer a range of electrical services, from rewiring, lighting and heating to supply of consumer units/fuseboxes, testing and inspection, and telephone, data networks and AV. Contact us for further information.


Sooner or later every property needs to be rewired. All cables have a finite lifespan and in lots of cases there is simply inadequate provision of sockets and lighting. It’s also common to see poor quality, ad-hoc additions that have multiplied over the decades!

Talk to us about your electrics; our advice is free and we’ll always be honest with you.


Although often overlooked lighting is crucially important to the success of all projects. We can offer a well-designed lighting scheme that will add to any interior. A good lighting scheme can alter the mood or even function of a room and should draw on simple design principles that are easy to work with and understand. We’re confident that we can help you to create a beautiful and practical interior where lighting really adds an extra dimension.


There have been a lot of developments in electrical heating in the last few years. Electric heaters are available that look the same as conventional, ‘wet’ radiators and can be controlled very simply from a central timer exactly like gas central heating systems. Lots of properties currently using night storage systems can very easily be upgraded to a modern system. We supply and fit a wide variety of electric heating, please get in touch with us to find out more.


Consumer units/fuseboxes are the brains of your electrical system and it is crucial that they are up to date and contain at least one RCD. Believe it or not, a fuse doesn’t do much to prevent you or your family and pets getting an electric shock. An RCD does and we would always recommend that you have a modern dual-RCD consumer unit installed in your property.


It’s recommended that every domestic property is tested every 10 years. If the property is for the rental market the interval should be shorter or on change of tenancy. We believe that it’s important that all home owners and Landlords look after their electrics. Our test reports are written in plain English detailing what, if any, remedial works need to be carried out.


We have it covered! Roger, a long standing Sparktacus electrician, is highly skilled in these areas having spent a large part of his career working in telecommunications engineering. This part of our business is not merely an add-on, it’s something we know in depth. From a simple extension through to structured data networks and home automation please get in touch.

  • Plenty of good advice and help given, not the usual put a cross where you want the socket! Highly recommended, excellent friendly workmanship and service!

The white stuff

Asbestos. It’s truly horrible stuff and we’ve had the misfortune recently to keep coming across it in an old house we’re rewiring. I’ve never seen it come up in so many guises before, I think it may have been a showhome for the Asbestos Marketing Board! Oh well, all out ...

Did you really have to call your burger van “Salmonella Pitstop”?! Located on one of Dartford’s less salubrious industrial estates, the sangers were great, but perhaps a name that altogether omits direct references to bacteria may suit a food outlet better? Failing that how’s about “The botulism bar” or “Cafe ...

We’ve embarked on an exciting rewire of a Grade II listed house in W. Sussex parts of which date back to the 16th century. I like a bit of wattle and daub, especially their early stuff.

What do you mean you like it dark? You're having some industrial chic!

  • I found Paul and his team very polite and efficient and most importantly for me clean... They left no mess for me to continually clean up.
