Trade for moving attic door

I want my attic door moved so that I can have a ladder installed...it will require making the ceiling good where the old door was and move lights. What type of tradesman do I need ie a carpenter or a builder - will I also need an electrician?

You would require a builder, as the old position of the door, would required plastering and also a electrician as the wiring would be altered

You require a Muilt skilled builder who has experience doing this kind of work you require.

Should you have difficulty finding one then you will have to get separate trades I.e carpenter,electrian and decorator

a carpenter or builder would do the work but i would have a electrician to undertake your wiring jobs so my best bet is your builder is the best bet because he would get is own electrician in as a matter of safety

Hi.
It looks like you need a handyman with both carpentry skills and good eye for detail to finish it off and fix all the areas on the ceiling after ladder is fitted.
Moving ceiling lights is pretty straightforward but basic electrical knowledge is a must.=

You will need a good builder, who knows carpentry. Also yhe best to have electrician, for your own safety. But some builders can do this jobs, if they are not major.

A carpenter would be best placed to carry out the work but maybe a handyman who carries out carpentry and plastering could do the complete job
