Rewiring a house should be ideally done early on before any plastering or decorating work begins. If you are renovating your home or thinking of buying a property that is more than 25 years old, its best to check if the wiring is up to the current standards. In rare cases where rewiring has not been done in decades, properties still have dolly switches and old round pin sockets which is a sure sign that rewiring is necessary.
