Hi guys


I am in Wellington (Northland) and am hoping someone can recommend a good RG6 cable installer that can move a sky cable (from satellite)  on the roof.


Current setup: My current SKY RG6 cable from the satellite goes along/under the chimney flashing which is under the roof. The cable then goes through the sarking and roof cavity (very small as flat pitch roof) to where the decoder is. 


The chimney is now partially demolished and will be gone completely. The area will be expanded and become a room.


The builder has said that the RG6 cable won't be able to stay and is a leak risk when the new roof sheets gets installed. He has suggested that the cable get cut and run properly through a side penetration (through sofiet)  rather than existing roof. He will cut the cable but make it accessible for joining.  He is putting the roof on the framing from tomorrow.


Requirements: - I need someone to run some RG6 from the satellite dish to where the cut cable will be left and join everything up. Running new cable all the way through is not possible.

Call SKY and ask them how much?  It's their cable and SAT Dish. They usually like single runs from the dish to the decoder (i.e. no joins).
