At Wiring Pros, we are known for exceptional commercial and residential wiring and rewiring. When it comes to new construction it is always easier to set wires the way the client wants to have them installed. This makes it a much easier process than rewiring an existing structure that may be older or have limited access. In a new construction everything can be seen because everything is exposed. Rewiring and older property will always be a little more challenging because there is harder access with an older construction, you often must open holes and find the issues between walls, etc.
Typically, you know it is time to rewire a property when the electrical devices are not intermittently working, plugs are falling out of outlets, you start seeing flickering lights, and or your wiring is out of code. In older homes ARC fault protection does not exist, new wiring will provide this extra safety. Older homes are wired with aluminum and should be considered replacing to cooper as it is more efficient and safer.
A blueprint or electrical plans may be requested at the completion of a rewiring job. All new wiring is also labeled as well to know what each wire is intended to do. When performing a rewiring task, it can come with some challenges specially if the property is older. For example: Access is one of the biggest hurdles because often the construction is solid brick which can be harder to get access through a wall as well as add costs. Also, if the property is undergoing remodeling the task can become inconvenient such as dust, access to the area, etc. Wood framed properties are always easier to rewire.
On the other hand, rewiring a new build is typically a little easier but also comes with some challenges.
The customer must know what they want before the job is started. If appliance specs and cabinet elevations are not provided, or finishing fixtures etc., it can cause delays. This information is crucial to complete the job in a timely fashion. If the customer plans on changing specs or requests any changes, it will certainly increase the cost. The more information provided the better and a clearer plan can be executed.
It is always important to hire a licensed, bonded, and insured professional specially dealing with your property’s electrical needs. At Wiring Pros, we offer a 2-year warranty on all services.
