Electrical Rewire Service

When to rewire a house?

As a responsible homeowner, taking steps to ensure safety and security in one’s home should be a top priority. However, one aspect of home safety that is often overlooked is the electrical wiring system. Outdated electrical wiring can pose a severe risk of fire, endangering the safety of family and property. To keep your home safe and give you peace of mind, hire a skilled electrician to rewire your entire house.

Dollens Electric is a specialized service team that is trained to handle older construction and keep damage to a minimum. Their electricians have the knowledge and experience required to rewire the entire house without causing damage requiring extensive repairs. They can check if your home’s wiring is safe and recommend repairs or upgrades needed. Safety is their top priority, and they strive to ensure clients’ satisfaction. 

Deciding when to start a whole house rewire project can be challenging. Since electrical wiring is usually concealed, spotting a problem can be tricky. Still, other signals can point to a malfunction, and our licensed electricians are available to help by completing a home inspection.

We had a great experience with Dollens Electric—they helped us replace old wiring, install new outlets, and install bathroom fans in our home (including adding the vents through the roof). They were very personable and easy to talk to, and it was easy to see that they put a lot of care into their work. We're looking forward to working with them again soon!

This is the second time we've used Dollens, first being when they upgraded the wiring to the entire house. This time they installed an isolated circuit in our garage and some can lighting. Even though it was a smaller job, they treated it just as importantly as the bigger job.They answered all our questions, let us know and talk through our options and didn't do any additional work without letting us know and approve the price difference for our requests, rather than telling us at the end of the job.A+ work!

Update 9/2020 - Upgraded some thermostat wiring for me with a difficult routing. Professional and quick.Update - Jason and Josh again came through for me. In the midst of a heat wave, they were able to come to the other end of the county and fix an electrical problem at my mother's house. Got the outlets for the portable AC and lift chair back working and made the wiring safer to boot.Original - Could not ask for better. Jason installed a new 40 amp circuit and an EVo charger for our car. (No more slow 110 charging. Yeah!) While working in our breaker panel he noted a dangerous situation left by a previous contractor who upgraded our air conditioning.(Side note kind of disappointing the inspector didn't notice that the other contractor put in a bigger breaker on a wire that was too small. Luckily the wire insulation had just started to bubble and it didn't catch fire.)Within a week they were able to fit us in to replace the faulty circuit as well as rewire our garage lighting to eliminate some creative but scary runs of extension cords and re-purposed outlets. Now I have bright lights and when I look up, I don't see wires draped everywhere.We connected with Jason of Dollens Electric through our equally excellent general contractor Dan Mackey. (Who by the way had nothing to do with the faulty circuit or the creative garage lighting.)Lastly a thank you to Jason's son Josh who got to do the crawling under the house.

I had Dollens come out to bid on installing a standby generator and they were friendly, on time, and professional. They walked me through options, explained what they were looking out and why and asked lots of follow up questions to make sure i was getting a bid for everything i wanted and needed.

These guys are the best. Very knowledgeable when troubleshooting old problems from less capable electricians who were here for prior owners. Installed a new outlet in my hardwood floor that looks beautiful along with solving our "where to put the lamp" problem. Lastly wired up a cat6 network allowing us to move our router/hub into a closet off my desk.Call/use them; you won't be sorry.

Items they look for:

  • Incorrectly wired electrical panels
  • Arc fault protection (AFCI’s)
  • Make sure the areas in your house with water nearby, like the kitchen, bathroom, garage, or outdoors. These areas have a special type of protection in case of electrical problems called “Ground Fault circuit protection.” This protection should also be in any electrical outlet that is within 6 feet of water. This protection should also be in any electrical outlet that is within 6 feet of water.
  • Non grounded receptacles including two prong receptacles
  • Wiring installed in an unsafe an un workman like manner. This is most commonly noticed in a garage, shed, or the attic and crawlspace
  • Aluminum Wiring
  • Old Cloth Romex
  • The correct wire size on circuit breakers. The circuit breaker is meant to protect the wire based on ampacity. Incorrectly matched wire cause an immediate fire risk.

Take the time to plan your electrical system carefully.
