C. Stretch Electrical & Carpentry was founded on the Isle of Wight in 2004. It’s founder, Colin Stretch, has over 25 years of experience as a certified Electrician and a lifetime of experience as a Carpenter. He has operated in all fields of electrical contracting including residential, commercial, industrial and explosive atmospheres (oil & gas refineries) in America, Canada, Great Britain and Europe. Colin also has experience and is a certified installer of Solar Electric Panels (Photo Voltaic) and Solar Hot Water (Evacuated Tubes.)

A few years ago, with Colin's lifelong interest in Carpentry, a decision was made to include this skill in his business. Colin's father was a Joiner and some of his earliest memories are of the smell of wood dust and helping his father in the wood shop.  Colin continues to impress his clientele with his perfectionist attitude and honesty.
