Most companies that carry out aerial repairs and maintenance will provide you with an over the telephone quote even before they arrive at your home to carry out those aerial repairs and maintenance. Most repair calls are in the range of 35 and 40, although you should confirm a general price before their arrival.
Some instances or issues that can happen that require aerial repairs and maintenance include:
Digital reception issues:
* pix-elation, where the picture freezes and breaks up into squares or small blocks;
* missing channels - where you are only receiving a fraction of the channels you should be receiving or no channels at all
Issues with analogue reception:
* Color loss;
* Shadowing or an additional picture in the background;
* Snowy or grainy picture
* Ghosting or a reflection of pictures;
These issues can be repaired by a good technician who will perform an on site diagnosis and then ensure that everything is properly aligned using a signal meter. If anything is loose that needs tightening or if cables are loose or connections are faulty, these are all simple and quick repairs.
Reputable companies will attempt to perform the repairs by using the existing equipment in order to save you money, but keep in mind that if more work is required, you should request a quote before proceeding to have the repairs done. At times, repair work required is dependent upon the age or quality of what you already have in place. Sometimes it is a better use of your money to replace the current system instead of attempting to repair it.
