A rewire is when all the electrical wiring in your property is replaced and the equipment is upgraded.
You should get a full rewire around every 25 years.
Wire deterioration can become a massive problem. Over time your cables will deteriorate, that’s a fact. This can lead to the wires becoming a fire hazard.
The best way to find out if you’re unsure is to give us a call. We can discuss it or you can send us a photo and we’ll be able to tell you.
The cost will depend on the spec of your house. For example a three bedroom house in Edinburgh will cost somewhere in the range of between £3000-£5000.
A full rewire will normally take approximately 1 week.
Yes, but temporary supplies can be installed.
Many people rewire before putting their house up for sale as it makes it easier, but it probably won’t increase the property value.
Not usually, however, insurers now generally insist on an up to date safety certificate for your electrics.
Not in the majority of cases
Doing your own rewire is possible but you won’t be qualified for sign-off. Rewires are difficult work and can go wrong so we don’t recommend it as a DIY job.

We highly recommend Keith Gunn Electrical Solutions!"

"First time we've used KGES and we're very impressed with the people and their processes. They carried out electrical certification and arranged for gas certification as well. We were particularly impressed with the communications when a glitch arose with online certification. We'll certainly be using them in future ... and they're right across the road!"

"Following a recommendation from an Edinburgh Facebook group, I got in touch with Keith Gunn electrical to fit two chandeliers. Simon responded to my enquiry promptly. He even shifted things around to fit us in on the same day as the ceiling roses are fitted. The lovely guy (think he’s called Scott) who came to fit the chandeliers arrived at times agreed and did an excellent job. We’re really pleased with the results!"
