Full & Partial Rewires – what does it cost to rewire?

What does it cost to rewire a home or commercial property?

Rewires can be large and complex jobs, but not always. ┬áSo in truth, it’s hard to give a reliable cost to rewire without a formal survey (it’s also highly unprofessional). If done correctly, by properly trained and qualified electricians, there is no reason why a rewire wouldn’t last for over 30 years, so it’s worth getting right.

WBES has strong experience in partially or completely rewiring homes and commercial properties, but whatever the  size of the rewire project, it starts with the survey.

Rewire Surveys – (critical to give a cost to rewire)

It is vital for the customer to be involved at the rewiring survey stage. It is afterall, your home or business. In order to ensure that you are happy with where electrical points and light switches are located, WBES electricians will rely on your input as to how you use the space. All of which will impact on the cost to rewire the property.

As an example, where a room has multiple entrance points, will you want to be able to operate the lighting from whichever entry point you come into that room from? Where will you be positioning your furniture and devices? This will tell us where you need power points and importantly how many. Having only one power point where the television is going to be situated is just not going to work. Our electricians need to know this detail so we can design the rewire of your house to your specification.

If someone gives you a cost to rewire your house, without having even seen it, or much less asked how many rooms you have, treat with caution!! The survey is critical to make sure the cost to rewire doesn’t start low and then increase!
