Upgrade the wiring in your property, to increase the safety to you and your family in your home

Faulty or deteriorating electrical wiring is a serious hazard, but how do you know when is the right time to rewire your property?

It is hard to give a definitive answer, wear and tear can vary depending on quality of installation and materials used, and doesn't always necessarily depend on age of the wiring installation.

Old wiring installations aren't necessarily faulty, but we always recommend to look at the wiring if you own, or thinking of buying, a property where it hasn't been looked at in over 25 or 30 years.

The cost of rewiring your property can vary, but we take a sensible and straight forward approach on prices. Why not contact us for an informal discussion.

  • You should be able to tell if your house has recently been re-wired by looking at the wiring near the fuse box (or consumer units as they are now known). If you can see an old-fashioned fuse box, with big white ceramic-style fuses, then there is a good chance your property needs a complete rewiring.
  • Modern-day electrical installations are wired in white or grey coloured PVCu insulated cable, and a modern consumer unit will have circuit breakers and residual circuit devices (RCDs).
  • Re-wiring a property can cause major disruption in a house, it is recommended to vacate any rooms while work is carried out. If you're thinking about re-decorating or re-plastering rooms, this needs to be done after all re-wiring work is finished.
  • If you're thinking "can I do it myself?", unfortunately the answer is no. It needs to be carried out by a qualified electrician as any major changes to your property's wiring needs to confirm with Part P of the Building Regulations.
