Full/Partial Rewires

Full/Partial Rewires

For homeowners a rewire can feel overwhelming, it is the biggest electrical project that can take place at your home, it’s the most disruptive and potentially the messiest. We offer full and partial rewires as required by the homeowner, we use the latest chasing tools coupled with industrial strength vacuum attachments, to alleviate as much mess as is possible. We work efficiently to minimise the disruption and power outages to your home, and we can organise plastering services to repair any cuts and chases made during the process, leaving your home clean and tidy.


How often does a house need to be rewired?

The guidance is that it should be done every 25 years, however it will depend vastly on the condition of the cabling and final accessories (sockets, switches, etc) in your home. You can have this checked over with an Electrical Installation Condition Report, or EICR for short.

Is old wiring really a problem in my home?

Yes, it can be. Some of the old cabling, like vulcanised rubber, was used in houses about 50+ years ago. Over time the rubber breaks down and comes away from the conductors, which can cause arcing, this can cause a house fire. Vulcanised rubber is still found in houses now.

Can I stay in my home whilst it’s being rewired?

You can do; however, we don’t advise it. It’s a large undertaking and normally means turning power off and lifting floorboards, it’s not nice living on what is essentially a building site. The project can be completed quicker if the property is unoccupied too.

What certification should I expect after the rewire is complete?

A rewire is notifiable under local building control laws. You should receive an Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC) and also a building control certificate, which can either be from the local building control or from the electrician’s competent persons scheme like Napit or NICEIC.
