241 Second Floor, Havelock Rd, Colombo 06 | 077 368 0680
This is a company that provides plumbers, electricians and engineers to fix issues in the home. They’re not the cheapest; but they’re professional, and you can explain the problem to the company in English and they will brief who they send to you.
This is a cool new website that acts as a directory for contractors, handymen, carpenters, movers etc. We haven’t personally tried them out, but they look like they may be worth a shot.
These are all good and reliable electricians. They speak a reasonable amount of English but it’s always helpful to have someone who speaks Sinhalese or Tamil with you.
