For health and safety reasons, it is always necessary to have safely earthed appliances and well fitted sockets and switches.

To keep your family, employees, and yourself safe, B&F Contracts can rewire an entire property to keep your property within the correct safety regulations.

B&F Contracts will always supply you with the relevant certification having completed the work with your electrics so that you can be reassured that the electrics have been tested and completed to a safe standard.

How do I know if my home needs rewiring?

Some of the signs to look out for in your property to indicate that rewiring may be required include:

  • Socket damage
  • Overheating sockets
  • Very limited sockets in each room ie 1 or 2 sockets
  • Round pin sockets are very old and need to be replaced
  • Wooden / Cast Iron fuse boxes

Plumbing and Re-routingThroughout new renovations it is often necessary to  re-route plumbing in order to suit your new appliances and adhere to current regulations. B&F Contracts will replumb your appliances to their new locations as necessary including radiators, sinks and dishwashers.

Our professional plumbing skills will reassure you that your new fittings will be safe and fully functional. We will always test the appliances and leave your property clean and tidy.

These services are not limited to new builds so if you have faulty plumbing within your existing property, we will be more than happy to re-route the plumbing in the property ensuring safety and usability is paramount.

 

With the rising costs of energy and the ever decreasing levels of fossil fuels, it is as important as ever to conserve the heat within your property. B&F Contracts can help you assist in energy conservation and save you money at the same time. Our cavity and loft insulations are suitable for most properties and will pay for themselves in the long run. We will first inspect your property to see if insulation is already present and if it is not, we will discuss a suitable level of insulation for your property.

We offer a range of insulation styles dependant o the layout of your loft. We can use blanket loft insulation, loose fill insulation, sheet loft insulation and blown loft insulation to ensure that your loft is insulated sufficiently. We also offer cavity insulation which is laid between the two layers of brickwork making up the walls. Insulating this cavity can prevent a loss of up to 35% off all household heat. B&F Contracts can survey your property to see whether cavity insulation has already been installed. Cavity wall insulation is blown into the walls of the property to ensure even filling. Our insulation is durable and long lasting and you will reap the benefits of your insulation every time you heat your home.

The foundation of your property ensures that everything about ground is sturdy, secure and weatherproof. Over time, it can sometimes be possible for the strength in the foundation of the property to waiver. This would cause visible cracks within the brickwork and walls and this type of damage is closely related to subsidence. B&F Contracts use trusted systems to minimise the damage to your property and help to retain the initial strength of the foundation.
