Ask Us About an Upgrade

For customers who like their K&T wiring, Redford Electric can usually bring it up to a safe standard without the need to replace it. We find that once our clients have had their traditional wiring professionally checked and any repairs or replacements completed successfully, it’s much easier to get suitable house insurance.

Gorgeous Period Feature

Although old-fashioned K&T wiring does need consistent care to keep it in a good, safe condition, and if correctly maintained it makes a stunning period feature in your home.

Reasonably Priced K&T Replacement

If you want the reassurance that modern wiring can bring, a total replacement may be best. We recommend that before purchase, if possible, you give us a call and we’ll come out and inspect the wiring for you. Using the information from our inspection, we’ll be able to tell you how urgent it is that the replacement is carried out, how much it’s going to cost and what sort of impact it will have on the house value.

When customers decide to go ahead with the purchase and want their K&T replaced with fresh, up-to-date wiring, we can get the job done quickly, correctly and for a fair price.
