Rewiring a house is one of the most important jobs you can do to your house. It’s not like plumbing in that if you get a leak you can see it and do a repair so it is crucial in terms of safety that all electrical work is carried out by a competent and qualified electrician.


SO HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO REWIRE A HOUSE?

Clearly costs will vary depending on which part of the country you are in and whether you are in the city or the countryside.

The average costs of carrying out a complete rewire to a 3 bed 1930’s terrace house is 2,750 - 3,500. These costs should include for a new consumer unit, testing and certification at the end of the job.


VARIABLES THAT EFFECT THE COST OF YOUR REWIRE

Clearly one of the biggest variables is if the property is empty or not. It’s a lot easier and faster for the electricians to rewire an empty house than one that is occupied with carpets and furniture. That being the case if you have an empty property make sure you drive your point home to ensure you get a better deal.

Another big time saver for the electricians is the use of surface back boxes but it does mean that instead of having flush sockets with the back box buried in the wall you are left with ugly white plastic boxes.

Maybe you don’t mind having surface back boxes and if that’s the case that fine but make sure you discuss these kind of details before you accept any quotes. Just so you know the best rewires will have all the cabling and back boxes concealed within the fabric of the building.


OTHER VARIABLES THAT WILL EFFECT THE COSTS


OTHER ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS

It used to be that an electrical installation consisted merely of lighting and ring main circuits with a consumer unit but times have changed and now there are a number of other considerations that you should consider if your property is due a rewire.

For example, do you require costs for:

That’s some list of add-ons but believe it or not any or all of those items could be included in a rewire and is one of the reasons why no two electrical rewire jobs are the same.
