When is Rewiring Necessary?

How do you know when it's time to call a House Rewire Electrician?

If a property has not already been rewired within the last 25-30 years, the chances are it will need upgrading at least in part in order to bring it up to current standards. The wiring may be potentially dangerous and may not be able to cope with the demands of modern living.

If you plan major remodelling work that constitutes a material alteration as defined by the Building Regulations, it is likely that you will need to rewire part, if not all, of the property, including upgrading the consumer unit (fuse box).

If you are extending your home, or converting an attic or garage, this will constitute new work and therefore all of the new wiring will have to conform to Part P: Electrical Safety, and all existing wiring will have to be improved to ensure that it is able to carry the additional loads safely, it is earthed to current requirements and that cross bonding is satisfactory.

Where you are extending or remodelling, the rest of the existing wiring does not have to be upgraded, except where upgrading is required by the energy efficiency requirements of the Building Regulations, i.e. central heating controls.

How Much Does Rewiring A House Cost?

How Much Should You Budget For Your House Rewire?

House Electrical Rewiring Prices

Many UK homes have old electrical wiring and getting your home rewired is a great way of adding value and ensuring safe and reliable operation. Electrical rewiring costs will vary depending on some factors including:

The size of your house (naturally a three bedroom house will cost more than a one bedroom flat).

Whether the home is occupied during the rewiring (House Rewire Electricians Oxford will work faster in an empty property).

The specification of fittings and fixtures you choose (stainless steel versus white PVC sockets etc.).

The number of socket outlets etc. and other extras such as security lighting or outside power points.

Where you live in the UK because of regional variances in contractor costs across the country.

Below are guide prices for rewiring different home types and sizes including an average two-bed terraced house, three-bed semi-detached house, and an average four-bed detached house.

House Rewire Electrician Oxford

Two bed terraced house:

A total rewire of a two-bed terraced house including kitchen and bathroom should cost between £2,000 and £3,000 depending on where you live in the UK and the size of the business you hire. An average of £2,500 is a commonly quoted price with the job taking between 5 and eight days to complete. The price will typically include:

Renewing all the wiring from the electricity meter to the consumer unit.
Installing a new consumer unit.
Standard white finish electrical accessories such as socket outlets and switches.
Circuit testing and final installation certification.
The price excludes plastering and decorating which will be required to finish the job. Your electrician may be able to provide a quote for this type of work. The electrician will ensure the installation meets current standards.

Three-bed semi detached house:

A total electrical rewiring project for a 3-bed semi will involve removing old wiring and fittings and then running new cables and installing new fittings. The price includes supplying a new consumer unit and assumes the work will be in an empty house. The price includes the minor plastering work required to fill in the holes chased in the wall for the conduit. The homeowner is responsible for painting and decorating.

The price for rewiring will be between £3,000 and £4,000 depending on regional variances across the UK. You should expect the work to finish within 6 to 10 days.

Four-bed detached house:

The bigger the house, the longer it will take an electrician to rewire. An average detached house with four bedrooms will have about ten rooms in total, including two bathrooms. An electrician will need about 10 to 15 days to complete the rewire.

Expect to pay between £3,500 and £5,000 for the complete rewire of up to 10 rooms including replacing all the fixtures and wiring with new, and issue of a test certificate on completion.

OXFORD HOUSE UPDATE TIPS

Home rewiring projects do more than increase the beauty of your home. Hiring an electrician can increase your home's worth and make your house energy efficient. In the article that follows you will learn some great home improvement ideas and learn how to see a project through.

Improve the look of your home by adding an unusual addition. Consider installing built-in shelving in your library or a wine cellar inside your basement. These impressive additions will not only please you, but they will substantially increase the value of your home.

Aluminium tape can be useful for patching roof cracks. Make sure that the surface is dry and clean, and then simply peel back the tape and press it on there like you're using duct tape. Those cracks will be sealed and waterproofed, with little time or effort involved.

New flooring is a good way to make your rooms feel new. Trusted flooring companies can install carpet, hardwood or tile in a day or two, or you can do it yourself with the help of an electrical contractor in Oxford.

Give the bubble in your old vinyl floor covering a shot! If these bubbles exist, it is a simple fix to just cut into the bubble and release the excess air that has been trapped. This will temporarily flatten the bubble. Inject glue into it to hold it to the floor after you have cut it. Purchase the type of glue that fills a syringe to complete your project.

Make puncture holes in paint can rims with a nail. The channel into which the lid fits typically fills with paint, and when you make an attempt to replace that lid, paint spills onto the can sides. With a nail, several holes can be made in the perimeter allow the channel to stay clear.

Use wallpaper to dress up an old bookcase. Pick an interesting and unique design. Place the wallpaper behind your bookcase, then you will see the design as you stack books. This little glimpse of wallpaper will attract attention from across the room.

Downspouts, gutters and chimneys are often overlooked when performing updates and maintenance each year. It is important that these areas of your home are maintained so they function properly. If you do not clean out your chimney regularly, it can cause a fire; if you do not clean your gutters, it may cause water to overflow and flood your home. Get your house rewired by an electrical contractor too.

When planning a home rewire improvement project, make a to-do list and ask an electrician in Oxford to verify you have not forgotten anything. Although you don't want to include anyone else, this is necessary, because if a crucial step is omitted, you may end up spending more than necessary or even cause damage to your home.

Before painting your home's walls, thoroughly clean them. The paint will stick better, and you may not have to repaint or touch up too often by undertaking this preparation work.

If you have a tired, dated kitchen, consider a new sink. This can instantly improve your kitchen's look. You can get new sinks in many colors, which gives you a chance to add some rewire to the decor of your kitchen.

Always accentuate your home's unique selling points. For example, ensure all great views are unobstructed by window coverings. You have to enhance what's in your home. A potential buyer is more likely to recognize the value of your home if it is looking its best.

Do you love the outdoors, but hate bugs? Try installing an enclosure with a screen onto your home. It can serve as a nice area in which to relax alone or with family members, while avoiding annoying bugs. A ceiling fan will increase your comfort. Consult a home rewire electrical contractor for your electrical needs as well.

Getting a home improvement project finished is a great way to make sure that your home is more valuable and can save energy too. The article you've just read has provided you with some excellent project ideas that you can tackle. There is also some great advice to get you underway. Begin today if you want to reap all of the benefits possible.
