    cost of having a semi-detached house rewired in an old house


    We have an old house and we think it's about time that to have the electrics rewired. We have an average semi-detached house. How much will this set us back if performed by an electrician?

    "Hi there,
    This can vary in price. Depending on design, how many sockets you want in each room, whether you want spot lights or normal pendants. Kitchen appliances etc.
    We work to your design so every price is different."

    "Depends on the number of rooms and points needed in each room, but you are looking between £2,500 and £4,000, depending on points and finish"

    "Hi, sorry its really hard to give a definitive quote figure without looking at the job. I can give you previous quotes and figures for jobs completed and what has contributed to the costs.

    Floor types - solid floors, floating floors, floor spaces with access ponts

    Roof spaces - are these accessible, is there flat roofs,

    Walls - brick walls, old plaster walls, gypsom walls

    All these are factored into quotes, an average property price for a 3 bed comes in at 3.4 - 4.5k where an older property with solid floors, plaster walls, flat roofs can go as high as 8-9k from previous experience.

    Hope that helps

    "All depends what you’re putting in, if it’s standard stuff I would assume 3000-3500 mark"

    "Hi Beverly, the cost of the rewire to your property would depend on many different things such as your specification eg, electric shower/cooker, downlighters, extractor fans etc.

    It would also depend on the volume of furniture you have, or if you have any flat roof areas all these things would make the job more difficult.
    To give you a rough ball park figure without an answer to all these questions you’re looking at around £3000.Hope this helps"
