How Much To Rewire a One Bed Flat?

One bedroom flats can be very easy to rewire depending on the flat position.

A typical starting cost to rewire a one bedroom flat would be £1995+VAT.

A one bedroom flat will typically consist of a new consumer unit and around 6-8 circuits including lighting and sockets,

We would expect a one bedroom flat to have around 15 double sockets.

Top floor flats are the easiest electrical rewires providing there is attic space above, and as such have the lowest cost.

HomeRewire Scotland will rewire most one bedroom flats in one day, including plastering repairs.

If the property is occupied you should allow an additional £500+VAT approximately.

How Much to Rewire a Three Bed Flat?

Three bedroom semi detached homes are really popular.

These typically start from £2995+VAT and would include around 9-12 circuits as well as external lighting and occasionally an outbuilding or garage.

A garage installation can add around £300-750+VAT depending whether the garage is attached to the property or not. Rewiring of three bedroom houses may still be complete in one day including plaster repairs.

This depends if the rewiring is straightforward.

If not, rewiring may require a few hours on the second day.

The big difference in difficulty with these properties comes with the wall type and whether its plasterboard or brick which can make a difference to the price and timescale.

If the property is occupied you should allow an additional £500-700+VAT.

How Much to Rewire a Five Bedroom Detached House?

Generally the bigger the house the more work is involved.

It will cost more to rewire and take longer to complete.

Larger homes may have up to 25 circuits and required additional consumer units and sub-mains cables.

A five bedroom home can typically cost around £4995+VAT for a standard specification.

It’s common for larger homes to have many extras including networking cables, additional lighting, downlight and other additional items which can add to the cost.

Most properties of this size will have a garage which can add £300-750+VAT depending on whether we have to bury the cable.

We still pride ourselves in being extremely quick in these larger properties and can completely rewire some 5 bedroom homes in just three days including plaster repairs.

If the property is occupied you should allow an additional £700-1000+VAT.

It’s important to arrange a survey to get an accurate quote for your rewiring works.

HomeRewire Scotland can issue remote guide quotes based off the address and any images you can send.

This is a great way to get an initial cost for rewiring and then arrange your onsite quotation.

Properties come in all different shapes and sizes, and our pricing strategy really depends on the ease of works.

We may survey your home and discover that it’s very straightforward and then be able to offer you a quote lower than all guide prices stated.

On the other hand it could be a very difficult project, and need an extensive budget.
