If you’re thinking you need a rewire but not sure, here are a few signs what you should look out for.
The rewiring would be required if the electrical wiring in your property is old or inadequate, otherwise over time this could cause an urgent safety matter. The first sign to check is the color of the cables, if you find black colored / black sheathed cables entering the consumer unit, then this is an immediate sign that the wiring needs checking professionally.
Modern electrical cables are either grey or white and are insulated by a coating of PVC – the old black cables were insulated with rubber which perishes and decays with age. if you had a fuse board replacement you would still have the problems. These black rubber coated wires could be up to 40 years old, over the time the deterioration allows the conductors inside the cable to meet. This can manifest itself as a blown fuse, but if you replace the fuse it will simply blow again. The only solution is to replace the wiring, contact us for a free electrical survey or read on for other signs to watch out for.
Other items to look out for include metal conduits running to the sockets or lights, aluminium cable (in use primarily from the 1950s to the 1970s), lead sheathed cables (common in the 1930s) for socket circuits. Sockets on skirting boards with no on/off switch, and an rewireable fuse board.
Are you looking to sell or rent soon?
Modern properties place a much higher demand on the electrical system than in years past, if you think, the wiring was designed for the property and what it would be used for, but say your property was built in the 60’s they never had microwaves and dvd’s, so over the years with all the technology being added to the house it will be putting a lot more strain on your electrical wiring, if you have old wiring it is probably an accident waiting to happen.
50% of new homeowners require additional socket outlets within twelve months of purchase of a new dwelling. There is a minimum number of sockets that should be installed in a house, Smaller Dwellings Room size Typically 4-12m²: Living Room 4, Single Bedroom 2, Kitchens 6.
Even if the safety issues aren’t enough to convince you, you will have to get your electrics updated before you sell your house or rent it out, a basic electrical periodic inspection report will reveal any inadequate or defective electrical systems and prove if a building or home is electrically safe. No mortgage lender will lend money on a property that could be a potential fire hazard. If you keep on top of the electrical maintenance, you could see any problems before its to late.

Kevin, Lee and their team did a full re wire of our house in August 2015. Their team of 5 were very efficient and complete the job within 3 days. Their work was of a high standard and the price was very reasonable. All of the team were polite and helpful, fully explained what they would do and how they would do it with as minimal disruption to us as a family as possible! We would highly recommend their team!Jennie, Stretford
K & L Electrical have worked on this retirement complex since 2008. Firstly, as a sub contractor for 10 new bungalows being built and once these were completed the organisation then asked them to carry out routine and non routine work to 99 of our other properties, our 32 bed care home and an administration building. They are pleasant electricians who are prompt, knowledgeable and tidy in their work. We will continue to use them for the foreseeable future.Danny Kenny, Wallasey

Me and my wife contacted lee, regarding doing some electrical work prior to our fitted kitchen being installed, he arrived on time, he and his team we very clean, tidy, and worked alongside other tradesmen to complete our dream kitchen. Any questions we asked were answered and explained fully, we found him very approachable, friendly, and most importantly, he quoted a very good price, and stuck to that price. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering any kind of electrical work in their homes. And we will definitely be using them again in the future. Great job guys.Stephen And Stephanie, Wigan
