Full electrical rewire of a three bedroom bungalow in Fleetwood

Full electrical rewire of a three bedroom bungalow in Fleetwood – 10 HOVE AVENUE FLEETWOOD

This was our next rewire project after completing 18A Leys Road. This bungalow had been surveyed just prior to lock down in March and the electrical installation had been flagged as needing attention. We had been contacted by our client initially to provide a full electrical inspection. Instead of paying for a full inspection, due to the age of the installation our client took advantage of our free electrical visual inspection. This is a free 30-minute visual inspection where we identify any major issues which may result in needing an electrical rewire. We deemed it sensible to rewire this property as the owner was planning on redecorating and installing a new kitchen and flooring throughout.

With this job our client had requested something a little different from our standard electrical rewire and requested down lights to be installed in the hallway and kitchen and some nice outside lights to the front and back of the property which will enhance the new rendering when this has been completed.

We completed the work including the plastering of the chases in five days which pleased our client as she had other trades waiting to come in behind us and make a start of the other work. Whilst in discussion with our client she was struggling to get a plasterer and kitchen fitter so we put her in contact with some of our team that we work with on a regular basis, this has allowed her to progress the work in her home and get closer to moving in.

Having had her property fully rewired we are in sound mind that she will have trouble free electrics for the next 10 years when her next electrical inspection is due. Having used Fylde Coast rewires for her installation she also has the added bonus of moving onto our unlimited 12 month Warranty cover giving her extra piece of mind.

Full electrical rewire of a 3 bedroom detached house in Blackpool

Full electrical rewire of a 3 bedroomed detached house – 18A Leys Road Blackpool

Having spent most of the last 10 weeks providing an emergency electrical breakdown only service due to the dreaded Corona virus, Boris Johnson gave the nod to trades to go back to work. We spent over four days sourcing various hand gels, facemasks, gloves and PPE required to ensure our sites were safe to start work. PPE sourced and we were finally ready to start our first post lockdown electrical rewire.

This rewire was an extremely important project to us as the owner of the property was a dear lady who was 91 years old. Sadly during lock-down she had been taken into a nursing home, the lady really wanted to return home where she felt safe. Social services had deemed her electrical installation unsafe after having them inspected by another contractor.

Fylde Coast rewires were contracted to provide a full electrical rewire to the property in an as efficient time as possible which would also include a full electrical rewire, the lowering of the dining room ceiling, all plastering including the skimming of the new lowered ceiling and painting of the plaster chases and ceiling. To finalise the work we provided a deep clean on completion which made her property ready to move back into.

We completed this project in full within eight days from start to finish. This would have been quicker if our regular plasterer had not just had a baby and was off on maternity leave and sourcing plaster was so difficult. Who would of thought there is only one producer producing most of the UK’s plaster supplies?

On completion the installation was signed off and inspected by social services, we are pleased to announce our customer is now back home, in the comfort of her own home where she belongs.
