Is a house rewire messy and disruptive?

When an electrician rewires a house, it is generally considered one of the messiest and disruptive projects you as a  home owner can undertake. To be able to rewire a house it is necessary to create channels through the plaster into the walls and occasionally ceilings to allow the new wiring to be fed through into place for your new rewire installation. Choose the wrong contractor with a sub standard basic and general set of tools and equipment and things can start to become very unpleasant. It can create an incredible amount of dust and extensive disruption. Choose an electrician who works alone or with inexperienced staff and this can go on for a lengthy uncomfortable length of time with limited power available.

To rewire a house it is necessary to gain access to under your flooring. Depending on the construction of your home it is sometimes possible to run some of the wiring under the downstairs floors, but only if they are accessible. Most down stairs floors are built on solid concrete which means the wiring for both upstairs and downstairs would need to be installed under the upstairs floors and loft area.

Furniture, beds and wardrobes will need to be moved about and belongings packed away for a less dust free experience. Not to mention to allow us to complete our job with less obstruction.

As house rewire specialists we are equipped with the latest specialist wall channelling machinery, which not only makes lighter and quicker work of channeling or chasing your walls as it is commonly referred to within the industry. This equipment also makes for a cleaner,  tighter installation to help reduce the following plastering and other costs to bring your house back to being your home.
