Remodeling Success Depends on a Great Electrician

Planning for a home remodeling or addition means considering the various elements that make up the project. Your focus will probably be on the aesthetics of your project, but the electrical system is of equal importance. One of the most important decisions you can make before starting work is your choice of electrician.

Making sure every electrical component is properly installed will result in a successful project and peace of mind. When deciding on an electrical service company, look for a firm with experience in remodeling and new construction, along with electricians who are licensed and familiar with electrical codes.

Importance of Experience

An electrician who is experienced in remodels or additions will be skilled in utilizing existing wiring when possible and knowledgeable about installing new systems where they are needed. They will be able to weave wires through finished walls in the configurations that provide ease of access, remaining unobtrusive with respect to other features of the remodeling project. The following are three typical services of a remodeling or room addition project.

Wiring Upgrades

Due to the poor condition or obsolescence of existing wiring in many older homes, a remodel may require a total wiring overhaul. The electrical company staff should have a comprehensive understanding of the latest codes and regulations to ensure their work will pass inspection and, most importantly, the residents will be safe.

Lighting Installations

A home remodeling project will typically entail the installation of new lighting fixtures. An experienced electrical services firm will be able to implement your desired lighting scheme for each particular area and properly carry out your vision aesthetically, functionally, and technically. This work should also include installing lighting controls that are integrated with the electrical system.


The addition of new room(s) to a home will require the installation of new electrical components. Electricians who are experienced in utilizing or upgrading existing circuitry, control panels, and electrical capacity will be essential for this type of project.
