Cost, Specification and Timescale


HomeRewires pricing strategy is slightly different to most due to the volume of rewires we carry out. We aim to have a detailed quote to you within 2 hours of our surveyor visiting your home. When we issue your rewire quote it is a fixed price and will not change unless you make major changes on the day of electrical installation. Our price is mostly derived from the timescale and manpower used.

Here are some typical guide costs for full rewiring including plasterwork repairs. These costs can vary so its always best to carry out a full survey.

Cost to rewire a 1 bed flat - From £1995+Vat
Cost to rewire a 2 bed flat - From £2395+Vat
Cost to rewire a 3 bed flat - From £2695+Vat

Cost to rewire a 2 bed house - From £2995+Vat
Cost to rewire a 3 bed house - From £3395+Vat

The final cost of your project will depend on the difficulty of the rewire in terms of access and whether the property is occupied or unoccupied.
Specific items such as downlight's will add further costs.
Larger and complex projects priced per individually.


Basic rewires include a new consumer unit, wiring for up to ten circuits, all standard accessories such as sockets and switches, plus earth bonding, external lighting and smoke alarms. There is an allowance for each item on the quote, for example we allow up to five double sockets in your lounge. Included in your rewire are fresh new sockets and switches throughout. We insist on using only quality products that will last the test of time. We have preferred manufacturers but can accommodate any specific brands you like. We can install extras such as extractor fans, shaver points, decorative light fittings, flush spotlights, carbon monoxide alarms, bespoke accessories, garage installations, aerial points and networking cables amongst others. Speak to us about anything you are considering, we will gladly offer our advice.


On your initial survey we will estimate a timescale for the project and discuss any limitations or preferences you have. Occupied houses require a little more planning to meet the suggested timescale. Occasionally we might ask you to vacate the property for a night to meet a timescale, although we appreciate this doesn’t suit everyone. We rewire most properties in 1-2 days.
