When is Rewiring Necessary?
Generally speaking, properties that have not been rewired within 25-30 years will need upgrading. This may involve a partial rewire, or a full rewire, depending on the standard of the wiring and circuitry. It is also important to bear in mind the rapid growth in technology, and the increasing options for electrical appliances that simply weren’t around in the early 90s. This could be putting your old electrical systems under stain, increasing the possibility and risk of electrical fires or shocks. As a result, it is essential that your electrics meet current safety standards.Book an engineer Ask us a question
In addition, major renovation work on your home may also mean that a full or partial rewire is necessary.
This is for renovation work that can be defined as ‘material alteration’ by the Building Regulations. In practice, this will usually mean upgrading the fuse board.
For any room extensions, including attic conversions or garage extensions, any new wiring needs to meet Part P (Electrical Safety) of the Building Regulations, and the existing wiring in those rooms will also need to be improved. This is generally to ensure that it can cope with the additional capacity, it is earthed in accordance with current requirements, and it has satisfactory cross bonding.Ask us a question

For a full rewire of a four bedroom home, the costs will typically be more than they would for a two bed property, for example. While a kitchen extension would generally be less than a full property rewire.
