Rewiring & New Wiring in Westonbirt
Prestige Electrical Services are part of Prestige Services, based locally in Westonbirt. Our electricians carry out all types of rewiring to both domestic and commercial properties. If a property needs a rewire whether it’s a house, outbuilding or an office, our Electricians have had training and qualifications up to the highest standards. This includes, 18th Edition (City & Guilds 2382-18) and the ability to test and report on the work of a third party electrician.
Why would you need a rewire?
Your Westonbirt property may require a rewire if the electrical wiring is old or insufficient for your needs. The easiest way to check is the colour of the cables. If you find black coloured cables leading to the consumer unit (fuse board) then this is an immediate sign that the wiring needs to be professionally checked. Modern cables are either grey or white and insulated by a coating of PVC. The old black cables are rubber which will perish and decay over time.
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 in the last 10 years by a qualified electrician?
- Does your fuse board have replaceable fuse wire?
- Do your fuses blow regularly?
- Do you have lights that use twisted old type flex?
- Sockets or plugs – do they 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 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), then we can provide this for you and notify you of any other electrical work possibly needed.
Wiring Checks for New House Buyers
If you are moving home and purchasing another property, we would recommend that a qualified electrician carries out a full EICR . They can assess and identify the condition of the installation of the property prior to exchanging contracts. We are finding that when the house survey is being carried out many surveyors recommend that an electrical report carries out to make sure that the purchaser knows of any essential electrical work needed as soon as possible. In some cases we have found that where a lot of electrical work is needed, the cost of this has been negotiated against the house purchase price.
New Wiring Installations / House Extensions
Our electricians not only provide rewiring services, but they can also provide a new wiring installation service for your Westonbirt home. This can range from one socket, switch or light, an extension, or a complete design and installation of the electrical wiring for a new property. No job is too small or too large and our qualified and experienced electricians have a completely flexible approach to working with both the customer and any other trades required. Should any electrical works need the Building Control department involved then we will take care of notifying them. We will also provide all of the paperwork needed to sign off the electrical installation.
External, Garden Lighting & Power
We can also provide garden electrical design services for your external areas. Our electricians can provide wiring from a PIR security light through to a complete circuit for mood lighting. We can install external sockets for outside power and for pumps for water features. Something of which is extremely popular when installing Koi ponds.
We can also help with any electrical emergency. Whether it is just advice over the phone for something straightforward i.e. resetting an RCD that has tripped. Or, if it is a more complicated electrical problem then we can arrange for one of our electricians to visit you to repair the issue.
We are fully covered by public liability and professional indemnity insurance. We are also members of the following professional bodies:
