Rewiring a house

The decision to start Rewiring a house is an important one. All properties, whether domestic or commercial, are required to meet legal safety standards. The required standard is compliance with BS7671.Where the electrical installation fails to meet the minimum safety requirements of BS7671 serious consideration should be given to Rewiring a house and replacing the old wiring and accessories such as switches, light points and power outlets etc with new ones.

Decided to rewire your home?

The best way to determine the current state of an installation is to have an NICEIC Periodic Inspection Report. This type of report is often carried out prior to a rewire where there is uncertainty or concern over the condition of the installation. Electric City is happy to carry out this report and advise you accordingly. If it is obvious that rewiring a house is needed, it is not necessary to have the report we can advise and quote for the work required.

Rewiring a house and New Builds – What we do

For both new builds and Rewiring a house we will:

  • Provide a free estimate
  • Design the circuits
  • Install new wiring and accessories
  • Test and certificate the new installation with an NICEIC Certificate as appropriate.


We will issue an NICEIC minor Electrical Installation Works Certificate is on completion of minor works that change the characteristics of that circuit. This includes the completion of any remedial work resulting from a Periodic Inspection Report or alterations to existing circuits such as additional socket outlets or light points. For new circuits, which we install and test, we would supply an Electrical Installation Certificate for this work.

We will always supply a certificate for our work giving you complete peace of mind knowing you are safe and compliant in case you want to sell your home.

Optional Extras

When carrying out a rewire we can also provide computer data cabling and wiring for phone points, TV aerial points, intruder alarm and anything requiring wiring to minimise the disruption to your home.
