We offer a complete rewiring service for all types of domestic and commercial properties. This also includes advice on the type of installation you may require, installation of all new cabling, correct type of consumer unit for your premises and all electrical accessories, including all up to date safety earth bonding according to IEE Wiring Regulations. You can be confident that all electrical works carried out by us are NICEIC Certificated.

Signs that a rewire is needed:
  • Cables run through our walls and fuse boxes and are hidden away in cupboards, making it all too easy to forget that the electrical wiring does need checking periodically. Cables, sockets and switches all deteriorate with use over time, and require regular checking. All houses should have their electrical wiring checked at least every ten years.
  • Cables coated in black rubber, which was phased out in the 1960s. Cables coated in lead or fabric are even older! Modern cables use PVC installation.
  • A fuse box with a wooden back, cast iron switches and/or a haphazard mixture of circuit boxes.
  • Older round-pin sockets and round light switches, braided flex hanging from ceiling roses to light fittings, black switches, and/or sockets mounted on or in skirting boards.
  • Wall mounted light switches in bathrooms.

Part P imposes the requirement that "fixed electrical installations in dwellings shall be suitably designed, installed, inspected and tested so as to provide reasonable protection against their being the source of a fire or cause of injury to persons". This means that electrical work in dwellings will need to be installed in accordance with BS 7671:2008 (The 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations), including new circuits, extensions to existing circuits and all works in high risk areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.
