Why do I need to Rewire?
If a property hasn’t been rewired in the last 15 years or so, there’s a chance that the majority of the current wiring will need upgrading in order to comply with current standards.
If you’re considering significant refurbishments that constitute a material alterationalteration as defined in Part 2 of The Building Regulations 20102010, there’s a strong possibility of needing a replacement consumer unit (fuse box) along with substantial, if not full, rewiring.
Extensions and conversions constitute new work, and will need to therefore meet the Part P: Electrical Safety guidelines entirely. To make sure that cross bonding and earthing requirements are met and also that the extra load produced by the new work is managed safely, all existing wiring must be brought up to standard.
At Manchester Electrical Services Ltd, we can usually determine whether or not a property has been recently rewired through checking the fuse box, electricity meter and also any exposed areas. To prevent unexpected surprises, it’s a good plan to have an inspection undertaken if you are looking at buying a property. For instance, a complete rewire may be required if the house features a mixture of sockets and switches, surface-mounted wiring or an out-of-date consumer unit.
You may need a rewire in the following circumstances:
A mixture of styles of switches and sockets
Old-style round pin sockets and dolly switches
Refurbishments constituting a material alteration
An outdated fuse box/consumer unit
Non-PVCu-insulated wiring (particularly rubber, fabric or lead-insulated wiring)
The Cost of a Rewire
The price of a rewiring project can vary according to the level of restorative decoration work necessary and the dimensions of the property That is why, it will pay to get the advice of an electrician as early in refurbishment works as you possibly can.
