One of the most difficult task as a homeowner could be the realisation of a full, electrical rewire. Rewiring is a major project to undertake, to have the possibility of disruption in your daily lives and the expensive floor or wall paper you've recently laid has to be removed or altered.
Like most material things in life, general wear and tear plays a huge part on what we deem to the point of replacement or upgrades such as tyres on your car or an old boiler which is now sounding a bit noisy and works less efficiently. Electrical systems are no different and we take it for granted because most of the time, you can't see it!
We at Livvingale recommend that a full rewire of your home every 25 years, not only to improve durability but too also ensure safety within your own home. Over time, cables can deteriorate; this could be because of alterations, additions and the demands loads of the items we now purchase. This means cables that were once safe can become a hazard over time.
Wrongly installed, poor workmanship or lack of understanding could potentially cause electric shocks or even fires. Livvingale are always prepared to advise and protect you from any such event.
During a full rewire, your Cardiff based electrician will:-
If your property is around 25 years old then it is old enough to need rewiring. This means that it is also likely that the building has an internal construction of brick or plaster. For these different materials, we use different strategies. For brick, we use wall chasers with dust extraction and breaking power tools which allow us to work effectively through brick but it can still create some dust. For plaster, we cause as little damage as possible and any damage that does occur will be bonded to make it structurally sound again.
One issue which we may come to is with the fact that floorboards don’t always come up easily however, we do use professional and appropriate tools to establish that the best cuts are made which will, in turn, minimise damage. Once the floorboard has been removed we will route our cables by boring holes in the joist or notching a small part from the timber and replacing with a metal safe plate.
The floorboards are screwed down or nailed once the wiring is complete, back boxes are mounted and we install a protective capping over the cables.
There are so many potential hazards that could arise, but our experience and expertise would put your mind at ease. We pride ourselves on working with you every step of the way and customer satisfaction is of the upmost importance to us.
