Rewires / Part Rewires

Electrical rewiring involves the replacement of old, dangerous or non-compliant electrical equipment, cables, fittings and fuseboxes.

This work can vary from a full rewire replacing all cables, fittings, distribution equipment etc, to a part rewire which may be the replacement or upgrade of a section of the installation to meet the current regulations.

Does my property need a rewire?                                                                                                Some indication that a property may require a rewire are given below.  Any one of these on its own does not mean your wiring is unsafe however it does indicate that a periodic inspection report would be advisable to determine the condition of the installation.

  • Does the fusebox have replaceable fuse wire
  • Do the plugs or sockets become hot or have scorch marks
  • Do fuses blow regularly
  • Do any of you sockets, switches or light fittings have wooden back plates
  • Do you have lights that use old, twisted type flex
  • Has your wiring been modified in an extensive and unprofessional manner
  • Do you have round pin plugs and sockets
  • Are your cables missing an earth wire
  • Is fabric or rubber covered wiring present in the property

Prior to undertaking a rewire, work is carefully planned in an orderly manner. Every effort is made to minimise disruption to the homeowner, dust sheets and vacuum cleaning equipment are used throughout.
