Unfortunatley, I have to agree with Omega. I will have to re-wire the house. I did the kitchen last year before I got sick. One of the outlets was getting hot so I know the dangers of Al wiring. I can't afford to have someone do the re-wire for me, so will have to do it myself. I am lucky in that the old wiring wasn't stapled to the studs so
Ii can just join and pull I will wait until the insurance tells me they want to inspect and then re-wire. I can probably do it in a couple of days with some help. I just don't want to deal with the heat in the attic at the moment. Many years ago, in the UK I was a registered electrician and have been reading up on FL code.

hahaha Jim, thanks for the correction. The old gentlemen's southern twang and my southern ears heard "Lords" of London. Thank you everyone for the reccomendations as well.

MrWigglez, from first look, $17,800 does sound high for a rewire on a 2300 sq ft home but every job is different and there are a lot of factors that bump up the price (two-story instead of single story, no attic space, etc.). Feel free to call me if you want a second opinion. To be completely honest, if you get 5 bids, I can just about assure you I won't be the lowest and that is fine by me. I have never wanted to be the man that got work "because he's the cheapest in town." There will always be someone out there that cuts another corner to be the cheap man. "Did a outstanding job for a fair price" sounds much better to me! Anybody can be cheap, but not just anybody can offer top quality workmanship and professionalism.

Any rewire work we do will be based on labor and material and I will give you a ballpark of what we believe it is going to take. If I think it is going to take 5 days and we get done in 4, you will be charged for 4 days labor, not five. I probably lose several jobs for this but I'd much rather tell you I think something is going to run around $8000 and end up billing you $7250 instead of telling you something is going to cost $6500 and then end up having to bill $7250. Some people like to give a low upfront price just to get their foot in the door, then argue or poor mouth for the "unforeseen" extras. Regardless, get atleast three "apples for apples" bids from reputable contractors no matter what your project is and you'll be in good shape.

If I can be of any service to any of you, shoot me a PM or call. If we get the work, we get the work. If we don't, we'll try to get the next one. And I'll still let you take me fishing if we do your work or not!

I was talking with our head electrician where I work he said a complete rewire could run as low as 5,000 to 15,000 depending if it is wired above head of run through the walls he said he can come and look at it he has been doing high voltage electrical at plants for 30 years licensed and insured in residential commercial if you wanna send me a pm with an address and contact # I can get it to him

Looking for electricians to bid on re-wireing the house. Once I know how much, I guess I'll just have to beg the bank

Call me at 228 383-0021 if you want to bid. I live in Cordova Park, Pensacola
