Domestic rewiring

We Provide Domestic Rewiring Services Throughout Norfolk

Ensuring your home is properly wired is essential for the safety of your family and your property. This is because old or faulty electrics can pose a serious fire hazard.

As well as being a fire hazard, which could cause potential injury or electrocution, old wiring presents another problem. Old wires are not fit for purpose because they can’t cope with the high electrical demands of today. 

We know that domestic rewiring can be disruptive, stressful and often takes time; in some cases up to 10-12 days. But we always strive to reduce this disruption by carrying out extensive preparations, providing clear-up and being as communicative with you as possible. 

Wherever you are in the East Anglia region, we can help you with domestic rewiring, full- and part- rewiring, electrical testing and inspection, and more.

How Do I Know If My Home Needs Rewiring?

This is a question we get asked a lot. It can be hard to know what state your wiring is in, due to their placement behind the walls. Though it’s important to remember that just because wiring is old, not all old wires will be unsafe. 

When deciding if your home would benefit from domestic rewiring, consider the following:

Has your home been rewired since the 1960s, or is your home more than 25 years old?

If your home is over two decades old or hasn’t been rewired since the 1960s, then check the rubber casing of your electrical wires for signs of degradation.

Is your electricity meter or fuse box up-to-date?

Modern fuse boxes and meters will have circuit breakers and residual current devices (RCDs). Check any exposed wiring to ensure cables are grey or white PVC insulated.

Are your lights faulty or do you have several which have stopped working?

This could be a sign that you need a domestic rewire. We recommend arranging an electrical inspection as soon as you are able.

Has your home ever experienced water or flood damage?

If yes, it’s likely the electrics have been damaged and will need to be checked.

Are you currently buying a home or extending your property?

This is the perfect time to ensure your existing electrics are safe and that all new wiring conforms to Part P: Electrical Safety. You can also customise your home with design fixtures and fittings that suit you.

Have recent electrical inspections or testing revealed that your cable insulation is below the acceptable level?

If yes, then it is vital you replace your wiring as soon as possible. Old cable insulation is no longer fit for purpose and can often disintegrate or crumble. 

If you’re unsure of the condition of your cable insulation, we can perform electrical tests or carry out a full electrical inspection.

Reasons To Carry Out a Domestic Rewire In Norfolk

Due to the disruption it can pose, it can be tempting to ignore rewiring or to put it off. But doing so can place you, your family and your home at risk. 

Here are a few more reasons to consider a rewire:

  • Many areas in and around Norfolk have experienced heavy flood damage since the 1960s. For this reason alone it is worth considering our domestic rewriting services.
  • If your home has an old-style fuse box then it’s likely your property requires a complete rewire. You can identify old-style fuse boxes easily as they often have a wooden base and large white ceramic fuses or rewirable fuses attached. 
  • Another identifying feature which will inform you if your electrics are out of date are old round pin sockets, rubber or fabric insulated cabling (used until the 1960s), and lead cabling (used until the 1950s). If your wiring is this old then we strongly advise you to hire an expert to perform an electrical inspection because your wires will have deteriorated over time.
  • On average, the rewire of a small home in Norfolk can cost anywhere between £1,800 – £4,000. For larger homes it can be as high as £9,000. But rewiring should be considered as an investment. This is because it can actually increase the value of your home or make it more desirable when selling.
  • We do our best to keep disruption down to a minimum and our service includes clearing as we go; so that you and your family can continue to carry out your everyday activities as normal as possible.
