Many of us have encountered situations where you're faced with the reality of 'getting things fixed'. For instance electrical issues in your home may not constitute having a full rewire of your low voltage electrical system. In turn quite the opposite. Having been told by another electrical contractor that your electrics are unsafe or old, could lead you to feeling fearful and unsettled that you are putting yourself and family at risk. It is always better to seek numerous opinions before deciding which option is best tailored to you.
Livvingale believe that only necessary work should be advised by qualified electricians and that you should not feel forced or pressured into carrying out unnecessary work, we believe that everything is advised rather than enforceable and only in extreme circumstances would we instruct you if there was a serous threat of fire or electric shock. Livvingale would never advise a client to undergo a full rewire unless absolutely needed - subsequently saving you, the customer money. Reducing your overall costs, upheaval of family routines and disruption caused by electrical work being undertaken has a significant impact on our daily lives.
Over the years, Livvingale LTD have worked on many rewiring projects so we are well placed at giving you an accurate estimate of how much, the duration and structure of your rewire. Our projections focus on the time we would spend on-site and how much manpower we would require. Deciding on electrical accessories would always be inclusive as a general rule in the first instance.
We don’t need too much information from you when taking a standard specification survey but it does definitely help us identify if there will be items which wouldn’t be included in our initial quote.
If your home is over 25 years old and has not had any major rewiring done in that time, then it may require certain upgrades to bring it up to the latest standard. Electrical work therefore needs to be compliant with building and electrical regulations. Any retrospective work carried from January 2018 should be adhered too.
Signs that your wiring is ageing might include fabric or rubber casings (as opposed to uPVC), a fuse box with large ceramic switches and general ageing/fraying of wires. You can ask a qualified electrician to perform a full inspection of your wiring and recommend/list any defects any that is required. A written report with Livvingale starts from around *£95.00 – rewiring estimates are free on enquiry or visit.

The bigger your house, the longer it may take to complete your rewiring project.All rewiring projects will be completed safely and professionally. Test certificates are provided on completion.Installing new wiring can be an intensive job – you should remove as much furniture as possible and take up carpets, as it is usually necessary to lift floorboards. Electricians may also need to remove skirting boards or cut into plaster, especially if they are installing new switches or sockets as they modernise the wiring. If your home is undergoing a full rewire, you might want to move out for the time it takes, as you will be without power and the process can be disruptive.
Kitchens are generally where most of the sockets in your home are. To cope with the large number of appliances we use in kitchens, a kitchen rewiring project is particularly common.The average cost to rewire a kitchen ranges between £1,200 and £1,800.
On your initial survey, we will estimate a timescale for the project and discuss any limitations or preferences you have. Full rewires should take approximately 1 week. From your initial survey, we can estimate a realistic timescale for the job. This will also be when we discuss any possible limitations or personal preferences you may have.
