Knob and Tube Replacement – Ridgewood NJ
There are a lot of old homes in Ridgewood NJ and if your home was built before 1950 and the service was never upgraded, there is a good chance you have the archaic knob and tube wiring in your home.
Replacing knob and tube is imperative for safety.
Like wiring an addition, it involves a good degree of planning. But unlike a new addition, you are dealing with sealed walls. And the older the home, the more likely the walls are made of plaster, making them harder to work with than sheetrock.
Getting behind plaster walls and running wires to existing boxes used for outlets, switches, lights, appliances and everything else electrical in your home, requires skill and technique. Oftentimes, the best approach is to do everything from above the main living areas – through the attic – and daisy-chaining the new wiring throughout the home. This method is the least invasive and leaves walls intact.
The replacement of the knob and tube wiring can also be done from below – in the basement.
