Updating electrical wiring
For example, a electrician experienced with homes like yours, with a truck full of tools and parts, can be a lot less expensive in the long one than one who has little experience, inadequate tools and has to keep leaving to get more parts.
A good rule of thumb is to get quotes from three electricians.
Rewiring a house will require a permit from your local building department.
The approach you take will depend on your budget, your ability to access the walls, attic, and crawlspace and the level of demolition allowed.You may want to consider hiring an electrician to advise and assist you with planning and discovery, since understanding the wiring of an old structure involves a good deal of experience and knowledge.The first step in replacing wiring is deciding how much you will access the walls.The cost depends heavily on the age and construction of the house, instead of the size of the home.For example, dropping a new wire from the attic into drywall walls in a modern house is much easier and less expensive than trying to fish wire through old plaster walls from a muddy crawlspace.
