As Edinburgh’s rewire and electrical experts we work on projects across the region, both big, small, commercial & residential.
With home renovations and extensions in the Edinburgh region rising year on year we are seeing a huge growth in the rewire sector especially with the renovation of older & period properties (in keeping with Edinburgh’s rich architectural landscape).
So are you looking to renovate? Our friendly and efficient team are rewire professionals and we are only too happy to help you plan and cost the electrical side of any renovation or extension project. We advise all our customers to factor any rewire work they have planned into renovations from the outset, both in terms of budget and project planning. If your renovation project includes work which constitutes a major, material alteration as defined by Building Regulations, it’s therefore likely you will be looking at upgrading your fuse box and a partial or full rewire of your Edinburgh home. You can generally work to the rule that if your electrical system is older than 25 years then it may possibly need a rewire, but it will definitely need a full electrical inspection. Other instances where you will definitely require a rewire is after flood or fire damage, if electrical installation has become unsafe, with the installation of several new circuits or with the upgrade of the property too. If in doubt we can arrange an electrical inspection of your Edinburgh property where one of our friendly team can best advise you of your options and answer any questions you may have.
It is worth bearing in mind that if you are looking to convert your attic or garage or extend your Edinburgh home then this will constitute new work and all new rewiring will have to confirm with the current electrical safety guidelines All existing wiring will also need to be checked (and if required improved) to ensure it can safely handle any additional electrical loads.
Carrying out a partial or full rewire will often involve creating new circuits or a change to your fuse box. Any work of this nature is notifiable to your local building control department but along with our DC Electrical peace of mind guarantee this is something we can help with. As NICEIC registered electrical contractors we operate at the highest of standards and all our work is covered by the Platinum Promise guarantee as well as our own 5 year guarantee available as standard on all of our rewire work carried out.
