Do you need a whole house rewire? Have old knob and tube wiring as pictured above?
If your home has knob and tube wiring, it was most likely built in the 1800’s to the 1930’s. Back then, knob and tube wiring was a revolutionary electrical innovation, but now it poses too many risks. Our technology has made many advances since the 1800’s, and to simply put it, knob and tube wiring can not handle the electrical loads of our modern-day appliances. Knob and tube wiring is also known for being poorly insulated compare to today’s Romex wiring. It is also very susceptible to fire hazards, especially when there are improper modifications done to fix the many wiring issues it can experience. Not to mention, knob and tube wiringis not grounded, making it unsafe for plugging in your electric appliances in places like your kitchen, bathroom, outdoor areas, and laundry rooms. Currently a handful of insurance companies are no longer insuring homes that have knob and tube wiring. Give GJC a call today for a free estimate to replace your knob and tube wiring!
The rewire process
Rewiring an entire home is a process. Here at GJC we are upfront and educate our customers on this process and what to expect. In order to rewire your home, we need to add wiring through out every room of your home. To do this it requires holes in the plaster/drywall. If our customer is living in their home as we rewire there are certain things we do to make this process smoother for them. We cover all items through out the home as dust is a factor during the process. Every room is cleaned on a daily basis through out the rewire.
