Not a Fan of this Fan!
We had an interesting one this week, when we arrived to replace an elderly lady’s ceiling fan with a normal light fitting.
When Currelec arrived we found the original fan had been installed by cutting a circle right through the plaster, then bolting the fan to a joist, then the area around the fan AND the screw heads had been filled in.
WITH CAR BODY FILLER!
Someone had already made attempts to remove it, but the whole thing was stuck fast & weighed a ton. So we chiselled the filler from around the base, then had to cut and drill the base into pieces, destroying it, to get it down.
All this left a 9 inch hole in the ceiling, so we moved the new light a few inches away, so the lady could get a plasterer to repair the ceiling.
As we left, the lady, looking at the box of mangled metal bits, chopped wires and filler, said “Do you think anyone would buy that old fan?”…….
