House rewiring cost in San Francisco

San Francisco, CA - Andrade Link Electric, a family-owned and operated electrical contracting company serving the greater Bay Area, has recently published a comprehensive guide explaining the costs associated with rewiring a home in San Francisco. As experienced electricians performing rewires and upgrades across the city for years, Andrade Link Electric provides this guide to help homeowners understand the investment required to rewire their outdated electrical systems.

"Rewiring a home is a major project, but one we perform regularly here in San Francisco,” said Victor Andrade, owner and operator of Andrade Link Electric. “We want homeowners to understand the full scope and cost of a rewire project before deciding it’s the right move. This new guide breaks down all the specifics - from the size of your home to the types of wiring needed - that factor into the investment."

The newly released rewiring guide provides San Francisco homeowners with expert insight into variables that influence cost such as layout and square footage, wiring gauge and materials, number of circuits, and more. Andrade Link Electric aims to use its years of experience to educate readers on precisely what to budget for an electrical overhaul.

“Too often we meet with homeowners who underestimate the true cost of rewiring their entire property,” added Andrade. “With clear information and realistic estimates tailored to San Francisco, we believe this guide offers the details you need to determine if moving forward with a rewire makes sense.”

Rewiring San Francisco's Unique, Historical Buildings

"We take great pride in our expertise in wiring homes across San Francisco," commented Victor Andrade. "Our team members have rewired many Victorians, Edwardians, and other property types found locally in the city. We know all the intricacies that come with overhauling decades-old electrical systems in our region. This allows us to provide accurate estimates to homeowners considering an upgrade so they know exactly what it involves from a cost perspective before contacting us."

Factors That Affect Rewiring Cost

Size and Layout

The physical size, dimensions, layout, and total square footage of a home greatly affect overall rewiring costs. The larger the home, the more time and wiring materials are needed for a complete electrical overhaul. Unique home layouts with multiple floors or hard-to-access spaces drive costs higher as well.

Types of Wiring and Circuits

The types of wiring (aluminum, copper, etc.) and the number of new circuits needed are cost considerations too. Upgrading outdated 60 amp electrical panels to 200 amps for sufficient capacity, or running energy efficient, code-approved wiring all contribute to total spend.

Difficulty and Accessibility

How easily wiring can be accessed behind walls plays a major role. Victorian era and other older homes often have wiring that is extremely difficult to reach, requiring extensive holes in plaster walls that also add patching, repainting, and repair expenses.

Permitting and Inspection Fees

There are city fees required for the permitting process and subsequent inspections to ensure completed work meets state and federal safety regulations. Homeowners may need to cover these additional permitting costs, ranging from $150-$350 on average in the city, depending on the scale of the project.

The guide offers expanded insights into each factor that shapes rewiring costs. Understanding these elements provides homeowners with the information required to appropriately budget for a major electrical overhaul project in San Francisco.
