Does Your Home Need a Rewire?
It's hard to give a definitive answer to this question without carrying out a thorough and professional electrical inspection of your home.
There are a few things you should consider to establish whether a rewire may be a good idea:
First of all, we recommend rewiring your home every 25-30 years or less. This is because wiring, especially in older houses, can potentially be unsafe and unfit for the requirements of today's electronic needs.
If your home has ever been victim to major flood damage, there's a high possibility that you may need to rewire certain parts if not all of your home. If your home is likely to be flooded again, it may be a good idea to raise the fuse box and sockets to above any future expected flood level.
If you're having problems with your lights or if they've stopped working there could be a fault with the wiring. Many wattage ratings are ignored, with can lead to the wires faulting and frying.
If you answered yes to any of the above then we recommend you get in touch with us to arrange an Electrical Inspection.

Electrical Rewiring Safety
As stated before, we recommend a complete rewire around every 25-30 years. It is worth considering having a rewire carried out within the 25 year time-frame though as it can lead to the correction of dangerous faults that might have caused damage or fire otherwise.
Rewiring often brings properties up to modern day standards, improving efficiency and safety whilst also improving the placement of electrical outlets that are more readily required in the modern day.
Having an entire property rewired is a rare occurrence, however it’s always worth considering as it can lead to the correction of dangerous faults that might have caused damage or fire otherwise, especially in older properties.
Electrical rewiring can bring your property up to date with today’s safety standards, whilst improving safety as well as potentially improving the placement of electrical outlets that are more readily required in the modern day.
