Re-wiring a house in Edinburgh.

Many properties in Edinburgh will be at the stage where they now require to be rewired.  In most cases unless you have an electrical background, people are not aware that their home may be unsafe due to the condition of the wiring or the accessories used.  The only time this comes to the owners attention is either when they are having work carried out, a fault arises or thankfully, in a few cases only, a fires starts in the property. 

To only way to be absolutely sure whether your property needs to be rewired is to have an EICR carried out.  An Electrical Installation Condition Report is a test that is carried out by qualified, SELECT registered electrician that produces an in-depth document on the quality of your installation.  

The typical timescale of a rewire in your Edinburgh property from start to finish is around 5-8 working days. You can see below points that you will need to take into consideration before starting a rewire in your property.

  • The cost of a rewire can dramatically alter with the specification and finish that you decide on.  This will however, all be thoroughly explained in the quotation.

  • All our electricians take the upmost care and attention whilst doing their job, but we would respectfully suggest that you that you remove valuables and lift carpets where possible, during the duration of the works.

  • Having your Edinburgh property fully rewired will as you can imagine,  cause a considerable amount of dust and disruption to your household, IES will use dust sheets and all our power tools have hoover attachments to reduce the effects.

  • Ideal Electrical Solutions can provide a plasterer to fill in any raggles or damaged plasterwork, ensuring you that you get the best finish as possible.
