How long would a lighting rewire take?
Hi! How long would it take to rewire the lighting circuit (upstairs only) in a 3 bed 1930's terrace approximately? The loft boards will need taking up as we have just had it insulated.?
If the loft had not been boarded, it would have taken less than a day for a two man team or about a full day for a decent electrician working alone.
Now that its boarded over, you would probably need to allow for another half a day maybe if boards need to be cut and lifted and re-laid again. If the boards are chipboard they will probably break up as they are lifted and may therefore need replacing or at least bracing with additional supports etc.
