What You Need to Know About a Full House Rewire

A full house rewire is a big job, so you want to make sure you know what you're getting into before you start calling a local electrician. By learning more about the project ahead of time, you won't be as surprised when you hear a price quote or what the work entails. Here's what you need to know to prepare.

What Does it Cost?

As with any home improvement project, the total cost will depend on a variety of factors. The most obvious factor is the size of your home. The larger the home, the higher the price tag. You can also expect to pay more if your home is older and has some quirks to it and how it was first wired.

What is Involved?

Unfortunately, some mess is inevitable with a full house rewire. Your local electrician will probably need to lift or remove your carpets, linoleum, or wood flooring to remove or reroute existing cable and install new cable. They will also be cutting channels into the walls for the cables to snake through. This is called "chasing" and can release a lot of dust and dirt into the air and onto your furnishings.

How to Get Through It

Going through a full house rewire can take several days, become quite messy, and involve a lot of power outages. Our best advice is to make other living arrangements for the duration of the project. See if you can stay with friends or family, or consider checking in to a hotel. This will give you peace of mind and be much more comfortable.
