This generally applies to homes over 60 years old. Additions and alterations to the original wiring over the years have added strain and compromised connections. Knob and Tube wiring is a simple 2 wire system that offers no grounding protection for equipment or life safety shock.
While ground-fault protection offers a safety factor, it’s only a bandage solution. Insurance companies are not covering homes with knob and tube. As there are many homes with this old wiring they are striving to force homeowners to rewire.
Our technicians do this in a way to cause minimal invasion to the home. All jobs include an Electrical Safety Authority Inspection certificate and patching of any holes we need to make. Painting of the patches may be needed. We provide in-home written estimates at no charge for this procedure.
