Electrical wiring in 1940s house


Posted by Heather Smith on September 23rd, 2003 03:44 PM

The wiring in my new house is old. It hasn't been updated since it was built but has had lots of "add ons" in that time.

Some of these include 20 rated wires to a 50 rated box and just generally jimmy rigged.

I'd like to replace all of it since it's probably a fire hazard.
I have no clue how much something like that wold cost.
The house is 1300 sq feet on the main level with a full basement.
There are lots of outlets that aren't grounded and things are a mess.

No one can seem to give me a ball park. I've been told it could be 3k or it could get much more expensive depending on what they find when they come to look at it...

I really need to know a ballpark. I don't even know where to start and since I don't have this kind fo cash laying around, money is an issue.
