We are experienced in all types of domestic wiring, from single apartments to full size dwellings and multi-occupancy units; including smoke detection, amenity and security lighting. All our rewires come with complete NAPIT certification and Part P registration.
Part P documentation is your guarantee that you are using a competent, qualified electrician who has the knowledge, skill and experience to safely carry out your electrical work. We register your works with building control at your local council - a legal requirement for most electrical works carried out in the home.
Making changes to the electrical installation in your own home should only be carried out by a competent person with full knowledge of the relevant regulations.
We can provide help and advice with alterations to your wiring in kitchens and bathrooms, with fuse board replacements, earthing and bonding or the installation of earthing rods.
How Often Should A Rewire Be Done?
There are many different opinions about how often you should rewire a house:
- After a specific time period usually about 25 years.
- When a specific problem requires the householder to replace the wiring. This is a similar argument to only servicing your car after it breaks down.
- Only when you have specific types of wiring, for instance rubber insulated wiring, otherwise wait for a problem. Rubber insulated wiring shows the wiring is old – rubber insulation has not been used in the UK since the early 60’s.
- When a series of problems suggest the need for a rewire, for instance constantly tripping RCDs or constantly blowing fuses
- When an electrical test and inspection says that a rewire is needed. Electricians can carry out an inspection of a house to assess the state of the wiring, if the inspection fails a rewire may be needed.
Think of your house in a similar way to how you treat your car – do you wait for a problem before putting your car into the garage? Do you regularly service your car?
The householder should remember that faulty electrical wiring can cause fires or damage electrical appliances when making the decision over whether to do a rewire.
