Protect your home by replacing your outdated knob and tube wiring
New GFCI outlets where you need them most
Worry and hassle-free installation
Any type of wiring that is old and falling apart is at risk of causing a fire, but knob and tube wiring can especially be at higher risk. It’s not inherently dangerous on its own, but if a DIY homeowner ever jimmy rigs the system, or if insulation is installed over deteriorating knob and tube wiring, your home can be at risk. Replacing the knob and tube systems can fully eliminate that high risk as it relates to your old, outdated electrical wiring.Get a FREE Consultation

Three major issues with knob and tube wiring is that it is very outdated, with no ground wire, and insulation cannot be installed over it. Knob and tube systems are not used in new homes anymore since they do not have the ability to support modern appliances.
Knob and tube wires are low risk for fires when maintained correctly. Inspect knob and tube wiring frequently for damage, discoloration of insulation around outlets, or if the circuit breaker trips often when using appliances on it. If you find any knob and tube wiring issues in your home call a licensed electrician to repair knob and tube wires immediately before replacing them with modern wiring systems.
Nope! New wiring can be installed without tearing out any existing walls or insulation, but all of the existing knob and tube wiring will have to be removed first, which can take some additional time.
