If your home was built before 1950, it may be in need of some electrical work. Prior to 1950, the insulation covering electrical wires was made of cloth. As cloth ages, it deteriorates and becomes brittle and may fall off leaving bare, uninsulated wires. Uninsulated wires can spark, start fires, or if touched, cause electrical shocks. Best American Builders will help you to get your home rewired with only the highest quality material and workmanship. Call today to speak with one of our highly trained technicians and get your free, no obligation quote.
What is an electrical panel? It is the central hub into which the power from the electric company comes into your home and is distributed to the various circuits of your home. In older homes, the panel may not have the capacity to adequately distribute enough power to modern appliances and electronics. Older panels also pose the risk of overloading, which in turn can result in melted wires, sparks, fire and electric shocks. Does your circuit breaker randomly flip or have you blown some fuses? If so, then you may be experiencing overloads due to an aging panel system. Call today for a free, no obligation quote on a panel upgrade.

If your home was built prior to 1950, then odds are that the wiring may be in need of replacing. These older wires were insulated by cloth, which over time can deteriorate and expose the wire. Exposed wiring can spark, start a fire or cause electric shock when touched. Older wiring also has limited electrical capacity which can be insufficient for modern appliances and electronics. So give Best American Builders a call today for a free estimate on electrical re-wiring. We provide the experience you need and the service you expect.
