ALWAYS HIRE A PROFESSIONAL
The following would be incorporated in a standard rewire:
- Installation of new cabling and accessories to meet current standards and regulations.
- Increased quantities of socket outlets to meet modern requirements.
- Upgrading of consumer units to ensure electrical safety
- Installations of smoke and heat detectors – if required – to meet recommended safety levels.
Rewiring a property requires time, training and skill. It is definitely not a job for an amateur or an unqualified contractor. Since 2005, UK law has required all homeowners to employ a registered electrician to carry out any domestic work. A common occurrence now is that when property owners come to sell their homes Electrical certification will be asked for as part of your home report, this will be for any alteration that may have been undertaken, all alterations to electrical systems should include test certification as standard, this is an industry regulation, any “tradesman” carrying out works and not certifying works is doing so illegally, it is important to remember that only electricians registered with NICEIC and/or SELECT have the authority to complete or sign off electrical certification. Every member of NICEIC or SELECT will be able to provide a company specific membership number.
And because we're members of NICEIC, the rewiring will be covered by a six-year guarantee.
COST OF A DOMESTIC REWIRE
The cost of rewiring will depend on the size of the premises and specific requirements. For a 3-bedroom semi-detached home, the average cost for rewiring is usually about £1995. A full program of works will be planned based on your requirements but generally speaking 90% of the works will be completed on day 1, we guarantee that full power and facilities will be restored before the end of any working day and your home will be habitable. Typically a rewire would include plasterwork and any remedial repairs (if any) to a point where only redecoration is required, depending on the construction of the property this can in some cases be minimal, it is always our aim to complete rewire works in the least disruptive manner possible, we fully appreciate the time and effort spent in today’s society to upgrade and modernize your home, we will actively discuss and explain all options and outcomes prior to works being carried out.
