Faulty electric wires and cables can be a fire hazard and can cause electrocution. Old properties are particularly vulnerable as cables can deteriorate with age.
When is Rewiring Necessary?
Properties more than 25 years old are likely to need a full or partial rewire including a modern consumer unit with RCD (residual current device) protection.
Black rubber cables are a good indication that action is needed.
I can offer free advice on this.
I try where possible to avoid causing disruption but it is sometimes necessary to lift floorboards and cut channels in walls. I can use plastic trunking instead and this is at the discretion of the customer. It is a good idea during rewiring work to add extra sockets where needed as this does not add significantly to the cost.
