Rewiring a house or flat – What’s involved?

At some point, you have probably heard of electrical rewiring in Sheffield, but do you know what it actually involves? A full rewire of a home is a fairly major project which will involve installing cables and wiring around your home and joining them to your sockets and fittings.

The great thing about rewiring a house in Sheffield is the fact that you get the chance here to fully map out where you need sockets, switches and light fittings to make your life as easy as possible, and to future-proof your home for modern day living.

You can even think about things such as installing smart home features as part of your rewire, with devices such as automated lighting, speaker systems which are connected to smart devices or smart blinds as part of the rewire.

It is major work, as these cables will need to be laid under floorboards, within walls and across ceilings, so ideally this should be done when a house is empty – as your electrician will need to be able to access floorboards, and will be ‘chasing’ into walls, meaning that redecorating or plastering may need to be undertaken afterwards, therefore you may be required to consider additional contractors such as plasterers and decorators if you do not wish to undertake this work yourself.

full house rewiring in sheffield


Rewires take place in two parts – the first part is known as the first fix and is basically the installation of new cables and wires across the property. Part two, known as second fix is where the electricity is made live and the front faces of sockets, switches and lights are fitted. In between the first and second fix, a lot of work takes place that isn’t related to electrics such as putting back carpets, filling holes and possibly redecorating.

Full house rewiring in Sheffield is usually a long (7-10 working days) and fairly difficult task. It involves few stages such as:

The first stage is the preparation stage, when depending on where the wires go, the ceiling or floor is opened up. Carpets or floors are always covered in order to protect them, all the drywalls are taken off and the wiring plan is made.
When all the old wires and electrical points are taken out. New chasing is made, new holes are drilled and cables are put in.
Then after the walls are plastered, the ceiling and floors recovered and kitchen tops constructed: the cables which are sticking out are connected to switches, sockets, lights, appliances and finally to the consumer unit.

Finally, when everything is connected an inspection is conducted to verify and certify the electrical condition.
