At Lumino Electrical in Kent our electricians have many years experience conducting full and partial
electrical rewires, in both domestic and commercial premises.
We are an ELECSA Approved Contractor, allowing us to perform your rewire from strip out to signing off and certification. Thus, giving you peace of mind that work has been carried out according to the current regulatory standards.
Do I need a rewire?
If the wiring in your home is very old, or you have had a recent periodic inspection which has returned unacceptable result, then you may require a rewire.
As with all services we can visit your home or business to provide a no obligation quote, outlining the process of works and a detailed breakdown of costs.
What comes next?
Having your home rewired is a major undertaking and as such planning and order of works is key to the job running smoothly. If you have recently purchased a home for example, and believe a rewire may be required, it is best to consider this before filing the house with your possessions!
Unlike some other forms of home improvement, electrical rewiring affects the whole property from top to bottom. Therefore, if a rewire is needed it is wise to hold back on decorating until the project has been completed.
Typically on the first day the power would be turned off, and a temporary supply connected near to the fuse board. The job can then be split into two stages:
The existing installation will be removed where needed, and new cables run through walls and joists to their connection points. This may mean floorboards and carpet has to be lifted, and wall chases to be made with power tools. Rest assured we will undertake these tasks with the usual care and cleanliness we are known for.
At this point a level of plastering will be needed for which a skilled plasterer should be contracted. This will give the best finish for the second fix.
This will see electrical sockets, lighting, switches and other outlets connected.
Before and after the second fix our electricians will test the installation, and an Electrical Installation Report will be issued on job completion.
