London Electrix Commercial Rewiring

We admit that electrical rewiring could be time-consuming and costly. Rewiring when there’s no sign of any fault doesn’t seem like the right thing to do for most business owners. However, electrical faults don’t give any prior warning before they strike. Ignoring the tiniest lapses or damages to your electrical system poses a lot of threat to you and your staff.

Ignoring these lapses in your electrical system means you’re not prioritising the safety of your staff as well as customers. Rewiring is the right thing to do if you depend on your commercial property to deliver the best service to your customers.

If you ever need quality rewiring service for your commercial property, London Electrix is the best choice for you. A single call or appointment is all you need to get started.

When to know if your commercial property needs rewiring?

It’s difficult to know when to renew the wiring system in your commercial property. However, there are certain signs you need to watch out for. Frequent light dims, circuit trips and flickering power outlets among a host of others.

There is no hardcore rule when it comes to the duration it takes for you to rewire your property. The general rule of thumb is to renew the wiring system in a property that still has its original wiring for at least 20 years. Of course, this depends on wear and tear of materials in the property.

Since it is difficult to determine the age of a building, you might want to take into account the number of years the property has been in use. For rental properties, especially those with changing tenancy, you should look at carrying out an inspection to determine the state of the electrical system once in every five years.

If a property still retains its original wiring after 30 years, it’s a must for you to update important features such as fuse box, switch and load box. Old wiring puts the property at risk, especially if the previous wiring is from a scrappy DIY attempt.

For properties undergoing renovation, Rewiring ensures the entire electrical system along with other fixtures in the house is brand new.

What to do during Rewiring

A rewire project could result in major disruption of your day-to-day activities. You will need to vacate the premises when the installation is being carried out. For a new building, the wiring needs to be done before plastering or additional decoration. This will likely prevent breaking walls to install the components.

At London Electrix, we can help you source for all the items that you will need for the rewiring but we understand that some business owners will want to do it on their own. If that’s the case, we recommend you provide the required number of materials needed to deliver impressive results.

How To Tell How Old Your Building Is

Pinpointing a building’s age is difficult. You could take a wild guess by carefully observing the state of things in the building, from the wall, and ceiling to the floor. Old houses are likely to have cracks on the wall and in some cases, washed off painting.

Every building has certain features that give its age away. Watch out for every tiny detail you can find, and you can tell if the property is 10, 20 or 30 years old. This simple assessment can save you the need to hire an electrician for an inspection.

If you need to inspect before deciding if a rewire is needed, put a call across to us, and we will send a certified electrical inspector your way.

How Long Does It Take To Rewire An Entire Building?

A typical rewiring of a 3-bedroom flat would take as long as 6-10 days. The cost also depends on the size of the building and fixtures that need to be replaced. On the flip side, rewiring could be cost-effective in the long run since it adds more value to your property allowing you to rent out at a higher price.

The satisfaction isn’t in the duration it takes for the project to be completed. Rather, it lies in the work output. London Electrix is one of the best company that can handle a project such as this one.

Hiring An Amateur Vs A Professional

Commercial rewiring projects aren’t for amateurs with little or no industry experience. And neither should you go for cheap labour as it poses a lot of risks. Hiring a handyman is like setting yourself up for heartbreak when nemesis finally strikes.

This is why you will need the hand of an expert for this kind of the project; this way, you get the best quality at the right price, giving you and your staff peace of mind.
