    Hi :)

    We have the wiring in place for an external light (as in a cable sticking out of the wall) near the front door. The cable however comes out in an illogical place. How difficult is it for a professional to chase the cable slightly to the left (about 15cms max)? The exterior of the house is pebbledash and needs various patches in places before we paint.

    Thanks

    Easy enough, provided the cable is long enough to reach the new location, and all of it will be horizontally or vertically in line with the new light.

    If it needs jointing / extending or relocating will result in parts of the cable not being in line with the light fitting, it will be significantly more work,
