FAQ

The recommended length of time is usually 25 years.

From £2500 – but it does depend on how many bedrooms your house has and what is required so this is by no means an accurate quote but should give you a rough idea of what to expect as an absolute minimum.

Any savvy home buyer will find out how old the wiring is so if you are on the 25 year mark they will know that once they have bought the house, they have a bill coming to get the wiring fixed.

 

In terms of house insurance most insurers will ask for an electrical safety certificate, so it is highly recommended to have one.

Unfortunately yes, it’s a bit messy but we are seriously clean and tidy installers so we will clean up after ourselves!

We do, we find that top floor flats are easier, whilst middle floor flats are harder with no easy access to above or below.

Technically yes, you can but it can be a very tricky job.  We won’t know what we would be faced with, if the previous installer has not previously labelled all items clearly then we could be in trouble.  This also means escalating costs for you if we open the can of worms and we get met with a mess.  9 time out of 10 we say no to this type of work for this reason.

Having newer wiring can make the system run more efficiently which can make bills cheaper!  We can also fit energy saving items such as lamps to help you consume less electricity.

We would recommend letting them know it might be a bit noisy whilst we carry out the work.

Yes to do a full job.

It depends on how big your house is, but on average it can take about 3-5 days. Sometimes we will need to carefully chisel a channel into the wall, we don’t plaster this up again.

We get that its not as enjoyable as purchasing a holiday but it is one of those things you just have to do. We wouldn’t recommend doing your own rewiring as it has to be professional signed off.  You can read out blog post about it here.

You can also help make the job a lot easier for us by moving furniture to make sure we have clear access and lifting carpets.

You will have to move furniture to help us prepare but don’t worry, we will send you a document about how best to do this.

Power can be on overnight, however during the day we can leave essentials such as fridges with power.

Deteriorating electrical wires can become a fire hazard. If cables are deteriorating it can cause arcing which can create a fire. Aluminium cabling also has a higher chance of catching on fire. If you are unsure of what type of cables you have, just give us a call and we can take a look.

Sometimes a date is on the consumer unit but we can tell by looking at the installation as to roughly when it was last done.

We will let you know it is there, carry out a test to be sure and then we will deal with it.  We are highly trained in this scenario.

This team rewired my entire house. I was impressed start to finish. He was very professional and punctual which made the whole experience so much easier. They worked around my busy schedule and fit in other workers while renovating my house. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an electrician in Cardiff and would use him again in the future.
