When should an electrician carry out a rewire? All electrical installations, over time, will deteriorate naturally as they are a working mechanism made up of various components and working systems. For wiring systems more than 25 years old we would always recommend having the electrical system checked out at regular intervals. This will help identify any faults or defects which could require improvement. It will also give you an idea of any work that might be required and potential cost if you are considering upgrading the electrical installation or remodelling it to include additional circuits.
A full rewire usually takes place when major building work such as an extension or conversion is being carried out – prior to any plastering or decoration. Other occasions when a rewire might be necessary include; After flood or fire damage If electrical installation has become unsafe Installation of several new circuits Upgrade of building/property

Notification to Building control Carrying out a partial or full rewire will often involve creating new circuits or a consumer unit change. This means the work is notifiable to your local building control department.

Be sure to arrange this with your electrician beforehand and get the appropriate certification for the work afterwards.
