Home Electrical Repairs

What's in a rewire?

Every rewire is generally different, but a typical full household rewire generally includes a new consumer unit (metal, dual RCD protected), sockets, switches and pendants throughout rooms. Here at Leading Electrical Solutions we only use the best products to ensure a high quality finish throughout your home or premises. If you have specific needs to be met such as chrome down lights and so forth, your quote can be tailored to suit to ensure you are more than satisfied with the end product. Any thoughts you may have can be discussed with our staff who will gladly help.


We can arrange a site visit where our fully qualified and insured engineers can assess the job at hand and give you a pretty accurate estimation of how long the rewire would take. In general, the average timescale on a home rewire is around 5 days. Our costs are highly competitive and in terms of value for money – we won’t be beaten!

Rewire stages in detail

The rewire is carried out in 3 stages. Firstly, we begin with the ‘first fix’. This involves the strip out of all the old wiring, running new cables in along with new back boxes to accomodate the new sockets and switches.

Secondly, is the ‘second fix’ stage. This is where all sockets, switches, lights etc are connected and installed.

The final stage of a rewire is a complete test of the installation to confirm that the new wiring and outlets are up to the required standard. On completion, the Qualified Supervisor issues you an Installation Condition Report which highlights the work done and the recommended date of your next Electrical Installation Condition Report and offer our professional advice.
