Generally a house rewire could take from a week to three depending on the amount of sockets and lights required by the customer, types of floors and walls cables have to be installed. Time is taken up as furniture is moved, carpets lifted, so the floor boards can be raised and allow for cables to be installed. Then you have the reverse, plastering may be needed, and tidying up, all ready for the customer to return home. All this keeping as much power on as possible for the customer, bearing in mind they are still living in the property.

We usually aim to complete an occupied 3 bedroom house in 4-5 days. We have carried out jobs where they are complete in 2 days, and also others have taken months. it all depends on how in depth the job is, how many electrical items are needed and how many people we have working on the job. Our average job in 2018 was 4/5 days for an electrician, apprentice and a labourer.
