While rewiring involves a lot disruption and inconvenience, a fire caused by old and damaged wiring would cause significantly more. You should have your wiring checked by a qualified Manchester house rewire electrician regularly and act on any recommendations.
If it is possible for new cables to be fed through cavity walls, under floors or over ceilings it is theoretically possible to rewire a house without damaging any plaster. Realistically however a full house rewire in Manchester will have to involve some plaster removal. We keep such removal to a minimum and will make the site good when the rewiring has been concluded.
If only some of the wiring in a premises needs to be replaced a partial rewire might be a good option. It is important to have the whole of the electrical system inspected, but any parts of the system found to be safe would not need to be replaced in most circumstances.
A partial rewire might involve a single room if the wiring in the rest of the property is sound. However you must ensure that the rest of the wiring in the house is completely safe so always seek advice from a qualified house rewire electrician. Manchester householders can check with our team for any advice they require.
There are regulations which are applicable to a partial or full house rewire. Manchester householders must inform their local department of building control before starting work. However if the electrician completing the installation is registered with the NICEIC or ELECSA they can self-certify their work and simplify the paperwork.
When wiring is damaged or faulty short circuits can cause sparks and wires can overheat. This can cause the insulation material surrounding the wires or combustible material within the walls to catch fire resulting in a hazardous blaze.
A preliminary visual inspection identifies frayed, exposed or broken wires, rust, water damage, and corrosion. The circuit breaker is then tested to ensure it has the required capacity, before power outlets are inspected to ensure correctly wired and everything is earthed appropriately.
Your electrician should, as a matter of routine, produce an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) confirming their work conforms to BS 7671. You may also need a Building Regulations Certificate confirming that the installation is compliant with applicable building regulations.
At the risk of sounding obvious, any new wiring and other new elements will be regarded as a new installation. Any parts of the old installation which remain after a partial rewiring will not.
Some wall damage is likely. A local house rewire electrician will cause the minimum damage possible but some drilling and plaster removal will probably be necessary. We will, however make everything on site good before we sign off on the job.
