We are shortly starting work on our extension, but a rewire is also long overdue on our property.
Which is recommended to do first? We have budget to do both so its just a case of organising them both.
I *think* it makes more sense to do the rewire first, then just add the extension's electrics onto it?
As I am no expert though, I thought it best to ask here here :lol:
Depends how big the extension is, what you can do is, rewire existing installation making provisions for the wiring of extension, ie cables routed between CU and extension(don't connect them to CU though, leave them dead)
I'd agree, tell your leccie exactly what is planned and he can build it into the spec for the rewire, then get the conservatory done. Get the mess out the way before getting yourr nice new shiny conservatory!!
you wouldn't believe the mess a rewire can make, depending on how much chopping out is needed.
