Rewiring & New Wiring – Burford

Rewiring –

Our professional electricians can provide all rewiring services in domestic and commercial properties. If a property requires new wiring or a rewire, our Electricians fully trained and qualified up to the highest standards. This 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.

Why would my property need a Rewire?

If the electrical wiring in your Burford property is old or insufficient for your needs, you may need a part or full rewire. The easiest way to check is to look at the colour of the electrical cables. If you find black coloured cables leading to the consumer unit (fuseboard), this is an immediate sign that the wiring needs to have a professional check. Modern cables are either grey or white and are insulated by a coating of PVC. The old black cables are also rubber which over time perish and decay.

An old fuse board is 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. Are you at all concerned about your electrical installation?
  2. In the last 10 years, has your wiring had a check done by a qualified electrician?
  3. Do your fuses blow often?
  4. Does your fuseboard have replaceable fuse wire?
  5. Do you have flex that is rubber covered?
  6. Do you have lights that use twisted old type flex?
  7. Sockets or plugs – do they get hot or have burn marks?
  8. Do you need to use extension leads?
  9. Are your cables missing an earth cable?
  10. Do you also use electrical equipment outside?

If you would like one of our electricians to provide a visual inspection of your electrics or you would like a full EICR (Electrical Installation Condition report) we can provide this for you and notify you of any electrical work needed.

Wiring Checks for New House Buyers in Burford

If you are buying another property we would always advise that a qualified electrician carries out a full EICR at the property to assess and identify the condition of the installation prior to exchange of contract. Many mortgage surveyors recommend that a report is carried out. This is to ensure that the purchaser knows of any essential electrical work needed. In some cases we have found that where a lot of electrical work needed, the cost of this has been negotiated against the house purchase price.

New Wiring Installations / House Extensions

Our electricians also provide a new wiring installation service. This ranges from one socket, switch or light, to a house extension, or a complete design and installation of the wiring for a new property. No job is too small or too large and our qualified and experienced electricians have a flexible approach to working with both the customer and any other trades which might be needed.

Should the job be of such that the Building Control department have involvement, then we will take care of notifying them and providing all the paperwork requirements to sign off the electrical installation.

External, Garden Lighting & Power

Garden lighting and power is becoming more popular and our electricians can provide design services for your garden and external areas. Our electricians can provide wiring for garden and external installations from PIR security lights through to a complete circuit for mood lighting. We can also install external sockets for outside power and for pumps for water features. Something of which is very 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.
