Approved Aerial Engineer
Having your aerial and satellite professionally installed is something that requires a specially trained and equipped individual to complete the task. The reason for this is not only would you need to get onto the roof of a building to perform the task, but you would also need the equipment to achieve this, a pair of ladders, a harness, some cat ladders for the roof, a reliable person on the ground to assist if anything went wrong, the equipment to achieve the task – A Digital aerial (a good one that won’t rust in a year or two) the cable, connectors (the ability to put the connectors on correctly to ensure no water penetration), the Tacks to hold the cable in situation on the building (these may need to go into wood, plastic or brick) then there is the know-how of which is the best way to run the cable, do I go under a guttering bracket or follow it around the house and go around it? Do I drill here or there to get the cable through the wall at the bottom of the wall or the top of the wall (do I, try and run cables between the walls?
There really is a minefield of things that can make an aerial job go smoothly without any faults or be a bit of a nightmare! Even to a trained individual they won’t know what to expect until they have got to the property and correctly assessed the job so please be wary of anyone who gives you a straight price for the job over the phone without asking to many questions about where you live, how many TV sockets you would like, what you have already got existing at the property and what you would like to achieve after the installation. Do however listen out for these questions when you call an aerial man because the chances are if they are prompting for you to say these things to them, they know what they are doing and are well equipped before they come to your property so they are enabled to complete the job on their first visit, saving you and them time and money.
