REWIRING YOUR HOUSE
If you’re extending your property or moving into an older house, you may need to rewire the electrics. A simple survey will tell you if it’s something you must do.

Why you may need to rewire your house

Rewiring your house is a major undertaking and can be an intrusive activity. We are always mindful of this and will seek to cause the minimum amount of disruption. Using dust sheets and shoe protectors to reduce the amount of dirt, keeping everything as tidy as possible as we work.
