What does domestic rewiring consist of?
The amount of work that goes into rewiring a house is unique to every single project, and AMP Manchester have worked on every kind of electrical work imaginable.
Before any rewiring takes place, we’ll conduct a full diagnostic of the existing wiring needs to be done to ascertain what needs to be done. This will involve a fuse board inspection, and inspection of the electricity meter, the light fittings, the existing wiring, checking for any faults and breakages in the power supply and ensuring that it is safe to work on.
It’s worth pointing out that in any new rewiring project, that surface-mounted wiring is not allowed, whether that is rubber insulated cabling, fabric insulated cabling or lead insulated cabling – it either has to be buried in the wall, in the ceiling cavity, behind skirting boards or in the floor cavity. Needless to say, this may involve us making some mess to make access points for the new wiring.
If the wiring that needs installing is in a new build then our work can be relatively straightforward as we will have an empty shell to work with. This not only cuts down on the amount of time it will take us to complete the rewiring, but it will significantly lower your cost, too.
