Rewiring Services In Plymouth

Electrical wiring is an integral part of your home and so is rewiring when needed. Faulty or deteriorated electrical systems can pose a safety risk.

If your house needs rewiring, then we can visit your home, perform a survey and provide a fixed price quotation for the work. As well as house rewiring, we can also complete full wiring for new builds and extensions. Furthermore, all our wiring services are fully compliant with building regulations and safety standards for total peace of mind. Upon completion, we will issue an electrical installation certificate to certify the installation is safe to use.

House Rewiring

Over time, the internal wiring of your home will deteriorate. In addition, as electrical standards improve over the years, your wiring may become sub-standard and require upgrading. As a rule of thumb, full house rewiring is usually required approximately every 25 years. This is to ensure it is safe and in line with current electrical standards. We recommend that if the last rewire was around 25 years ago, that you arrange electrical testing periodically to assess its condition. Once this is completed, it can be replaced when necessary.
However, if your home has suffered fire or flood damage, you may need to get partial or full rewiring to rectify any damage to the electrical wiring in your home. Our electrical contractors provide both full and partial rewiring to meet your specific needs. So, if you need house rewiring in Plymouth or South Devon, contact us to arrange a free survey.

Do I Have To Inform Building Control?

Any proposed full or partial rewiring will need to be notified to your local council’s building control. When you use NICEIC Approved Domestic Installers, like us, we can liaise with your local building control department on your behalf, saving you time and effort.

What Does a Rewire Involve?

Rewiring a home is a complex process that is completed in stages. As a result, it can cause a lot of disruption to your home, so you need to be prepared for this. The first stage, also known as the ‘first fix’ involves replacing all the electrical wiring for the main electrical circuits, smoke detectors, lighting, telephone and aerial sockets. This stage will also include the installation of back box fittings for electrical switches and plug sockets. All of this happens before replastering takes place.

The second stage (second fix) takes place after the property has been re-plastered. It involves the fitting of electrical components such as switches, light fittings, plugs, telephone, aerial, sockets, electric showers, extractor fans and replacement consumer units.
