Do your premises need rewiring?

Our electricians can carry out a periodic electrical test and inspection on your property to determine its condition. Cables, switches, socket-outlets and other accessories deteriorate with use and misuse, and require regular checking. All houses should have their electrical systems checked at least every ten years. Commercial properties every 5 years or less in some cases.

There are several indicators that an experienced electrician will look for to determine the age of your electrical system and whether your property needs rewiring:

Spot the signs:

  • Cables coated in black rubber - black rubber was phased out in the 1960's. Cables coated in lead or a fabric are even older. Modern cables use PVC insulation.
  • A fusebox with a wooden back, cast iron switches, a haphazard mixture of circuit boxes
  • Older round pin sockets and round light switches, braided flex hanging from ceiling roses to light fittings, black switches, sockets mounted in skirting boards
  • Wall mounted light switches in bathrooms


If any of these features are present in your house, your wiring system is probably many decades old. Safety in your home is vital, and we strongly recommend that you contact us so we can carry out any electrical improvement work.
