A rewire is a big, messy, and often expensive job and needs to be planned properly by the contractor and householder. A rewire replaces some or all the electrical wiring of a house. A ‘rewire’ is rarely just a rewire; householders often replace or add electrical items, for instance sockets, light switches and fuse boards. How will a rewire effect the householder? In many cases the electrician will need to gain access through the floorboards to run wiring underneath the floors. This means taking up carpets and other flooring materials. It’s not an easy, clean, or tidy task in the majority of cases. One of the messiest jobs involves drilling out channels in the walls to provide room to accommodate the new cabling. This is called chasing out. Imagine chasing out a channel along the middle of just one wall in your home. Imagine the amount of dust and dirt this creates. Now imagine the same happening in each room in your home. This is what could happen when you require a full property rewire. Some people decide to move out while the work is being done. If you have recently bought a house that needs rewiring, we recommend getting the work done before moving in. You can then move in after all the messy work has been completed and concentrate on your own decorating.
Points to consider when having an electrical rewire:
Extra items added during a rewire will cost extra so bear this in mind and keep tabs on what you are adding and how much it costs.
It’s important to know how much redecoration will be likely to be needed post rewire. Most electricians will fill over chases and holes with a bonding coat or filler. This is then ready for a plasterer or decorator to finish.
Do some research:
