Rewiring

Prestige Electrical Services electricians can provide a rewire and rewiring service to domestic and commercial properties throughout our area.  If a property requires a rewire whether it’s a house, outbuilding or an office Prestige Electrical Services Electricians are the right choice for your rewiring requirements. All our electricians are professionally trained and qualified in all areas of Electrical work ensuring that all works meet the current electrical rules and regulations.

Why would you need a rewire?

Your 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 then this is an immediate sign that the wiring needs to be checked professionally.  Modern cables are either grey or white and are 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:

  1. Has your wiring been checked in the last 10 years by a qualified electrician?
  2. Does your fuseboard have replaceable fuse wire?
  3. Do your fuses blow regularly?
  4. Do you have lights that use twisted old type flex?
  5. Do your sockets or plugs get hot or have burn marks?
  6. Do you need to use extension leads?
  7. Do you have flex that is rubber covered?
  8. Are your cables missing an earth cable?
  9. Do you use electrical equipment outside?
  10. 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 we can provide this service for you and advise you of any electrical work that may or may not be required.

Wiring Checks for New House Buyers

If you are moving home or purchasing another property we would recommend that a qualified electrician carries out a full EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) to assess and identify the condition of the electrical circuits prior to exchange of contracts.  We are now commonly finding that when the house survey is being carried out for the mortgage company many surveyors are recommending that an electrical report is done to ensure that any essential electrical work required is known to the purchaser buying the property as soon as possible. In some cases we have found that where a lot of electrical work is required the cost of this may be renegotiated.
