Home and Domestic
Full and Partial Rewires
With charming detail and character-filled rooms, period properties are wonderfully rewarding homes. But while some original features are welcome in older houses, antique wiring can be downright dangerous. Did you know that faulty electrical wiring is responsible for half of all accidental house fires and at least 1 person dies from an electrical accident every day in the UK? If your home has not been professionally rewired in the past 25 years it will not comply with current safety regulations and must be upgraded. First 4 Electrical have over 15 years of experience in full house rewires throughout Newport, can provide competitive quotes and are happy to schedule work to suit you.
Call us to arrange a site visit, where we will professionally assess the condition of your current wiring and provide you with cost and time estimates. Once you’re happy for us to undertake the work, we’ll arrange a project schedule to suit you. All electric cabling will be replaced, and a new metal clad consumer unit will be installed in accordance with Amendment 3 of BS 7671:2008. During the rewire, we’ll need access to all switches and sockets in the property. While we aim to disrupt your living space as little as possible, rewiring does involve underfloor and in-wall access and so it is much better to arrange a rewire before beginning any decorating work when planning a home renovation. We’ll design and implement the new circuit to suit your requirements, fitting faceplates sympathetic to the character of your new home.
First 4 Electrical really shine when it comes to external lighting solutions! From design and planning to the big switch on, the team lend decades of experience coupled with knowledge of lesser known modern lighting options to make your outside space shine. We’ll advise on the right cabling and systems needed and propose additional features for consideration such as brick lights, which look stunning when used to illuminate a red brick wall, or patio flag lights for dramatic up lighting. No matter how large or small your garden, professionally designed and installed lighting can spectacularly alter your outside space as well as offering additional security to your property.
Loft Conversions & Extensions
When extending your home, it’s so important to consider how the space will be used early in the planning stages so you can be sure to include plenty of sockets, USB sockets, light switches, television, telephone and broadband ports. First 4 Electrical have over a decade of experience in wiring extensions and are happy to lend our knowledge to the design of your new living space. We’ll ask key questions, encouraging you to imagine the space in use so you can properly understand and decide on the fixtures required.
