Your Edinburgh Electricians Guide to Extensions & Loft Conversions

Your Edinburgh Electricians Guide to Extensions & Loft Conversions

With the Edinburgh property market booming you may be in a position where you love your current homes location but need more space. Converting your loft or adding an extension can definitely help solve your space issues and will also add value to your property – double win! It is however important to make sure all the work you undertake on your Edinburgh home is completed by a team of professional, fully certified electricians and that’s where team DC Electrical Edinburgh can help.

We fully appreciate that undertaking an extension or loft conversion project is a big job and due to the nature of the work can be disruptive. By forward planning with our expert electrician team we can ensure that your project runs smoothly and stays both on time and on budget. We advise all our Edinburgh customers that this is also the best time to check whether your extension or conversion would require planning permission or would fall under permitted development regulations.  Any work your Edinburgh electrician carries out will be required to comply with building regulations and one of our electrician team can advise if any of the electrical elements of your project are notifiable. As we are NICEIC domestic electrical installers we can complete any certification required and notify your local building control if needed. Once this is all complete you will receive a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate confirming the work has been carried out to the required standard as well as receiving an electrical certificate for the work.If you ever look to rent our or sell your Edinburgh home you will need to provide the certificate so it’s best you keep this in a safe place 

It’s almost certain that your Edinburgh home renovation project will require the addition of extra power and lighting. Once one of our friendly electrician team surveys your requirements we can then advise if it would be best to supply any additional power or lighting via existing circuits or whether a new consumer unit is required. As NICEIC registered electrical contractors you can be rest assured that we will give the best advice and more appropriate advice in relation to your project. This is especially important if you are looking at installing a shower room or bathroom (and the safety implications this will have in relation to your electrical install).

 As a full rewire can be disruptive it would be a smart choice to incorporate any required upgrades to your current electrical system into the same time frame as any extension or building work in your Edinburgh home. Assessing your need for a rewire or electrical upgrade is something we are experts at and we will advise the best course of action for your project.
As Edinburgh’s number one electrician team we want to ensure that any changes to your home add maximum value. We are  committed to making sure your home works for you, not just now, but for years to come. For more details on how we can be part of your next project get in touch today.
