If a property needs a rewire our Electricians are the right choice for your rewiring requirements. They are fully trained and qualified up to the highest standards including the ability to test and report on the work of a third party electrician. Whether it’s a house, outbuilding or an office. Our electricians provide only the highest level of electrical competency and all are 18th Edition (City & Guilds 2382-18) qualified.
A rewire – Why would I need one?
Your Lambourn property may need a rewire if the electrical wiring is old or insufficient for your needs. The easiest way to check is the colour of the cables. For instance, if you find black coloured cables leading to the consumer unit (fuseboard) then this is an immediate sign that the wiring should have a professional check. Modern cables are either grey or white and insulated by a coating of PVC. The old black cables are rubber (which over time perishes and decays).
An old fuse board is also an indicator that your electrics require upgrading as there could be metal conduits running to sockets and lights.
Look at our 10 point checklist to see if you may need a rewire or electrical test:
- Has your wiring had a check done in the last 10 years by a qualified electrician?
- Does your fuseboard have replaceable fuse wire?
- Do your fuses blow regularly?
- Do you have lights that use twisted old type flex?
- Sockets or plugs – do they also get hot or have burn marks?
- Do you need to use extension leads?
- Do you have flex that is rubber covered?
- Are your cables missing an earth cable?
- Do you also use electrical equipment outside?
- Are you at all concerned about your electrical installation?
If you would like one of our electricians to provide a visual inspection of your electrics or a full EICR (Electrical Installation Condition report) we can provide this for you. We can also advise you of any electrical work that may or may not be needed.
Wiring Checks for New House Buyers –
We are regularly finding when a house survey is being carried out, many surveyors recommend that an electrical report should take place to check the electrics and make sure the purchaser knows of any electrical work needed as soon as possible. If you are buying a property in Lambourn and would like an one of our qualified electricians to carry out a full EICR do contact us. The electrical inspection will assess and identify the condition of the electrical installation at the property. In some cases, which required a lot of work, we have found the cost of this has also had the house purchase price negotiated against.
