Rewiring a House in South East London



If you have bought an old house in south east London, it is quite possible that it will need rewiring. Even if your new home was built within the last thirty  years, it’s likely that it does not conform to the current bs7671 regulations regarding electrical installation laid down by current UK law and therefore could pose a danger to you and your family.

Your building survey won’t indicate the state of the wiring so you should hire reputable electricians in south east London in order to check electrical installation

South London Electricians will always tell you if you really do need a complete rewiring job or a partial job, it is quite possible that the previous owner has already renewed some wiring, sockets, switches etc.

It’s always best to have your home rewired before you move in as there is less mess and disruption to your normal routines, but obviously this isn’t always possible. We recommend that, if you have plans to refurbish, at least have the electrics checked by electricians from south east London before you begin.

When your home is rewired you can update your old fittings by changing the number of sockets you have and moving them to get rid of any trip-hazards from having to use extension leads. You can take power via armored (swa) cables to a shed, garage or elsewhere out in the garden. Updating your fuse board, which may have been over loaded, means that any electrical faults that may have arisen because of your outdated equipment will be fixed at the same time.

If you call us in to have a look at your rewiring job, we will have a chat with you about what your ideas are for sockets, switches and any outdoor wiring and will advise you whether or not it is feasible. We often come across householders whose ideas sound great to them but are impractical – we will explain the problems and discuss what alternatives there are.

South London Electricians offers a full range of domestic rewiring services within south east London (areas we cover). We have many years of practical experience and we’ll complete the work to the highest possible standard.

Please remember, any new wiring needs to conform to building regulations Part P 17th edition. All of our work conforms with the law and is certified as such.
