Complete or partial rewiring of the electrical system generally becomes necessary when the wiring has become unsafe or outdated due to age, wear, or damage. If you are considering a partial or complete rewire of your home or business, you should have a properly trained, professional electrician, inspect and evaluate the condition of your entire electrical system. Electrical rewiring of a structure is a large undertaking. Proper identification of the problems and receiving the right information will be very important in determining the best course of action. It is
critical that electrical work be in compliance with both Local and National Electrical Code Safety Standards. If work is done improperly, it can cause significant liability issues, along with a safety risk for your home and family.

Listed below are some types of damage that might require partial or complete rewiring of a structure:
- Lightning Strike/Power Surge
Listed below are some older types of electrical wiring that present safety concerns, and should be strongly considered for replacement:
- “Knob and Tube” wiring
- Aluminum wiring
- Ungrounded wiring (2 wire circuits w/no grounding wire)
NOTE: Many insurance companies will either not insure properties containing these types of wiring, or will charge a premium price for doing so, due to the increased dangers of electrical fire within the structure. Performing the needed rewiring will not only provide safety and peace of mind, but will usually result in a substantial insurance savings, helping to offset the cost of the repairs.
