What will it cost to do the project?

The specific costs included in your project will depend on your particular renovation needs. Especially if you live in an older home, your best option may be a complete rewire, which usually starts from approximately $8,000+, depending on your requirements and the ease of access to the wiring. Larger projects which include smart home features or home entertainment system installations are likely to exceed $30,000. Again, this will depend on your project specifications - an electrical consultation will provide you with a cost estimate accurate to your home’s electrical requirements. 
*Note: these costs are rough estimates only and are subject to change. For a cost estimate accurate to your specific project, please consult your local renovation specialist.

What are some important things to be aware of when carrying out electrical work in Melbourne?

Attempting electrical work without the knowledge and experience to do so is extremely dangerous and could result in electrocution or fire. There is a legal requirement in Melbourne for the majority of electrical work to be carried out by a licensed electrician. Refresh’s team of electricians are licensed and highly experienced, ensuring you are left with a safe and functional home.

Will you take care of any council applications required for this project?

Yes. Your renovation specialist will advise you on whether or not your project requires a permit and can take care of the application process for you. They will also provide you with a compliance certificate once the work is complete.

What are some signs that my home might need rewiring?

Indicators of faulty electrical work include frequently flickering lights, blown fuses, outlet sparks and a burning smell. If you notice these signs, or if you live in an older home, it’s worth booking an inspection.
