Topic tags/keywords: electrician contractors professionals electrical contractors local contractors renovation contractors rewire

I am in the process of purchasing a home and it will require a full rewire, would also like an RCD box, outside security lights and extra sockets.
Can anyone recommend me a good electrician and what qualifications the electrician needs to have?

It’s impossible to recommend an electrician without knowing where you are. Local recommendations are essential to finding good tradespeople; it’s not the company it’s the person.

Unfortunately, even with good electricians, sometimes it’s also the ability to effectively communicate your needs to the electrician. The first thing we had done when we moved into our house was have the fuse box replaced with a full panel. The electrician mounted the new panel on the side of the garage and ran conduit over to the old box, using that as a junction box.

There are two things I wish I’d known to ask for:

  • I’ve struggled with getting enough circuits for my rewire through that conduit. Something bigger would have been nice.
  • He used a Square-D Homeline panel. This makes it harder to buy breakers, many are more expensive, and they don’t have more exotic breakers for this panel (specifically, there is no 2 pole AFCI breaker, so I can’t run an Edison AFCI circuit… pull another pair through that conduit).

So, really, at some point we’re back to “get Rex Cauldwell’s Wiring A House and learn how to do it yourself”.

Electricians carrying out work in England and Wales have to comply with Part P of the Building Regulations … A good electrician will not hesitate to provide them.

Yes, it is hard to find useful information online these days. I always take hours to go though all reviews and guides before making the decision.
