Homes constructed prior to 1950 run a high risk of having this wiring, unless you know that it has already been replaced. Knob and tube wiring continued to be utilized through to the 70's before finally being discontinued, altogether except for a select few commercial or industrial applications. The concern is that some home sellers get around replacement but concealing this system just enough to not get noticed in a home inspection. So if you know, or even suspect, that you may have this wiring, give us a call.

Knob & Tube Wiring Replacement

While it is not a surefire thing that outdated knob and tube wiring will lead to problems, it is certainly more of a gamble than you should be willing to take. You want to be sure that your residential or commercial building is up to date with current building codes and guidelines. What happens is that the insulation in this wiring system tends to break down, especially with the aging process.

This can lead to problems like sparks and fires. Plus, there is the issue you are likely to have when it comes to insuring your home. If you can even secure homeowners insurance, the rates will be much higher due to the elevated risk factor involved. Stop putting your home and loved ones at risk, and help lower your insurance premiums by addressing this issue.
