Electrical Rewiring in Sheffield
Why do I need to Rewire?
You may need a rewire in the following circumstances:
An outdated fuse box/consumer unit A mixture of styles of switches and sockets
Non-PVCu-insulated wiring (particularly rubber, fabric or lead-insulated wiring) Old-style round pin sockets and dolly switches
The Cost of a Rewire
The cost of a rewiring project will change according to the level of restorative decoration work needed and the size of the property For this reason, it will pay to obtain the advice of an electrician as early in refurbishment works as possible.
I needed some second fix works carrying out including sockets for appliances and a couple of light fittings installed including 4 spotlights. Chris was unable to install the sockets because the wall was lined with plywood (I did not make Chris aware of this) Chris did however successfully install the socket for the fire and fit the two light fittings in the dining room and landing. The spotlights in the kitchen were fitted but it doesn’t appear a hole saw was used on the newly plastered ceiling and there has been a LOT of making good to do (plaster repairs) around the fittings which isn’t ideal.
He was punctual, polite and tidied up when he had finished, he even made a fuss of our little dog! We were having our cooker connected, having just moved in. I thought the price was a bit steep at £45, considering he was only here for ten, fifteen minutes, but appreciate that it is quite probably the going rate for the job, and we needed it doing ASAP. We would definitely ask him again if we need anything else doing, but I would get a couple of other quotes as well.
