Upgrading the electrical wiring system of a house can be quite messy and expensive, however, it is absolutely necessary for this number one reason: SAFETY.
You flip a switch, the lights come on, the TV is working fine and the refrigerator keeps your food cold. For most people, their electrical system is fine. For others, this is not the case. For instance, a house that is over 40 years old will absolutely need an upgrade in wiring for safety reasons.
Rewiring a whole house can be extremely messy and cost a lot of money. With proper planning,, this can be done with minimal disruption. You can even turn this expense into an asset by increasing the value of the home.
According to a study conducted by the National Fire Prevention Association in 2009, the primary cause of residential fires can be mainly attributed to old and faulty wiring. The risk of a fire breaking out and destroying everything is directly proportional to the age of the wiring in the house.
Old wiring isn't inherently dangerous as the popular belief goes. On the other hand, you can never be sure as you were not there to witness the original wiring. Insulating materials around the old wire deteriorate over time . It is not a matter of ‘if’ they can cause problems but of “when” and by then you have a fire accident waiting to happen.
If you are unsure when the wiring in your house was last inspected, it is time to get an Electrical Inspection specialist. These are the warning signs that an inspection is long overdue:
PK & Altman sent two men – they were able to troubleshoot the problem and completed the work in just under an hour.
Came on time, inspected, knew what the problem was, fixed it in less time than estimated and only charged me for the time they were there.
My experience with PK and Altman Electric was excellent. From my initial contact with Elizabeth in the main office to the service that was provided by Raphael and Omar, the staff was professional, polite, and punctual. I called on a Tuesday, and Elizabeth scheduled me in for Wednesday! And Raphael and Omar arrived an hour early. Before starting, Raphael reviewed a TO DO LIST with me. A ceiling fan and two outlets, including a GFI and light fixture, were either replaced or serviced. Pricing is competitive. Very pleased and would highly recommend.
Great service, quickly done and on time. Will definitely use them again and recommend their high quality workmanship.
Very quick response. Fair pricing. Great quality work. Simply put, I love you folks!
I had a good experience with this company. They installed two bathroom vanity lights. They came on time, completed the job efficiently, and cleaned up afterward. And, their office staff helpful completing a contract required by my building. I’ll use them again.
The service they provided was excellent. They quickly responded to my initial call. It was easy to communicate with their office via email, this included answering any questions, setting up the service call. They also provided all the necessary insurance and permits.
I called them around 10:30 am. They had two guys out to the apartment within 3 hours. They fixed the short (burned-out breaker) and installed the closet light fixture. Service was prompt, courteous, and professional. Price was fair. Would definitely use again.
The team arrived on time and performed the installation professionally and on time.
Great service. Timely. Friendly. Quick.
They were great. They were quick, the pricing was fair. I would recommend them again. It was $300 or less. It literally took them an hour and a half, and they didn’t have to go buy the part and come back. It was really nice that they were able to come in and fix it on the spot and now it’s fixed completely. They were excellent. I’m in real estate and there is no category where I wouldn’t give them an “A”. I’ve had plenty of bad electricians.
Two guys showed up on time. They were friendly and assessed the situation quickly. Fairly basic job for them so they had the parts necessary and had done it all within an hour. Paid and clear itemized invoice same day. It’s nice when it’s apparent that a firm genuinely appreciates your business.
They were able to send someone within an hour of correspondence. The electricians were great! It wasn’t the most straightforward installation, but they were able to make it happen in a reasonable amount of time. A new box was needed to replace our existing box before the chandelier could be installed and they were able to do it in no time! Very pleased and would highly recommend.
