Looking for a house rewiring electrician in Bolton? We offer cost-effective electrical rewire services for both new/old domestic and commercial properties.
Electrical rewiring in Bolton is not something you will need to do very often – perhaps only once in a generation, but when it needs to be done, you need to be sure that it has been done right. Old, worn out wiring can be dangerous, but so can wiring that has been incorrectly installed. For the best local house rewire electrician at competitive prices, give us a call – we are always happy to explain what commercial and domestic rewiring involves.
An electrical rewire involves changing some – or even all – of the components such as circuits, sockets and consumer units which make up the electrical system at a premises.
Both commercial and domestic rewiring involve a degree of disruption. It may be necessary to pull wires through walls and under floors. There could be drilling, floorboard lifting and plastering involved. Obviously professional electricians will always endeavour to keep such disruption to a minimum.
It is impossible to give a general timescale for commercial or domestic rewiring work. Obviously the length of time required will vary depending on the size and complexity of the job. If you need electrical rewiring in Bolton, we would be happy to come to assess the work required and give you a good idea of the timescale involved.
The cost of house rewiring and rewiring in commercial premises will vary depending on the amount of work required – as you might expect a large, complicated job will be more expensive than a short, straightforward one. For all electrical rewiring in Bolton, get in touch with us and we would be very happy to give you a quote.
It is unlikely that you could completely rewire a house, or any other space, without needing to do some plastering afterwards. How much plastering is dependent on the design of the space. If we can avoid cutting into walls by passing cables through wall cavities or under floors we will, and of course we will deal with any plastering required to leave your house in a finished condition.
When you rewire your house there is no way of avoiding disruption. For a full house rewire many householders choose to vacate the premises. However, if you are prepared to put up with the inconvenience, staying in the house during domestic rewiring is possible.
We undertake both domestic and commercial electrical rewiring in Bolton, and across the North East. Call us now for more information.

House rewiring in Bolton is a lot of work, disruption and effort. But if it needs to be done, it is very much worth it. Faulty wiring can lead to electrical shocks, damage to appliances and fires. So get your home’s wiring checked by a qualified Bolton house rewire electrician. Replacing faulty wiring is a lot less expensive than replacing your house and contents after an electrical fire.
In theory, if all of the wiring can be passed through cavity walls, under floors or above ceilings this could be achieved. In practice a full house rewire in Bolton is likely to require some plaster removal. We always keep this to a minimum and of course we always make the site good before we leave.
If only a part of the wiring at a premises is unfit for purpose, you might only need a partial rewire. House owners should always get a full survey of their electrical system, but if some or all of the circuits are fine, there is no need to replace them.
If only one room at a property needs new wiring, you can just replace the wiring in that room. It is very important to be certain that the rest of the system is sound, however. For this reason you must always consult a properly qualified house rewire electrician. Bolton homeowners can get all the advice they need from our dedicated team.
There are several regulations you must comply with when undertaking a partial or full house rewire. Bolton homeowners should notify building control before commencing work, but then so long as your electrician is NICEIC or ELECSA registered they are authorised to self-certify their work, greatly reducing the paperwork involved.
If you have faulty wiring inside a wall, there may be a short circuit which causes either a spark, or makes the wires heat up. In either case this could cause either the insulation surrounding the copper wires or other materials within the walls to ignite causing a potentially serious fire.
First a visual inspection reveals any broken or fraying wires, corrosion, rust or water damage. Then the electrician will check to ensure that the circuit breaker has the correct capacity, that all of the outlets are correctly wired and earthed. Any issues will be noted, and a decision made regarding how much of the system needs to be worked on.
Your electrician will provide you with an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), which should show that the installation meets BS 7671. You may also need a Building Regulations Certificate which will confirm that the work has been completed in accordance with building regulations.
All new circuits will indeed be classed as a new installation.
Your local house rewire electrician will always work in such a way as to cause as little damage to the structure of a wall as possible. Some drilling and plaster removal may well be necessary, but any reputable firm will make everything good on completion of the installation.
