Often, older electrical wiring does not support the level of electrical equipment that a family home needs these days.
Electrical fault finding is not always easy but being able to identify electrical faults and then understand how to correct them, in particular those associated with electrical faults in fuse boxes or appliances in the home is vital.
When renovating a property, it is important to determine as early in the process as possible, whether rewiring will be needed, as the fabric, décor and fittings of the building are likely to be disrupted.
Rewiring a house is categorised as first fix and second fix. First fix is generally taken to mean the works before plastering. Running new cabling will involve lifting floor coverings, floorboards, and possibly skirting boards, as well as routing out channels in the walls. First fix work also involves fitting new back boxes for sockets and switches.
Second fix takes place once the building has been re- plastered, flooring replaced, ceilings filled and made good, and so on, and might include installing a new consumer unit. As our electrical engineers work you will have electrical power in your home during the rewire.
