Old homes can sometimes be a challenge when troubleshooting electrical problems as there are so many connections and facets that need to be replaced when looking for everything to last for another 15-30 years.
The old Victorian home style carries that weight of an era past but preserved in the beautiful architecture that remains to this day. This is exactly the reason why any work done on these homes should be taken care of by professionals who are familiar with the territory.
Our family home was built at the turn of the century in 1905. Our neighborhood is like a time capsule back into the 1900’s if you pretend that the cars aren’t around. When we started smelling smoke one day in the kitchen we found an electrical outlet that had become broken over the years and decided to find a company with experience in dealing with old Victorian home electrical repairs. They found that not only was our kitchen showing signs of degradation but 4 other areas in and outside of our home were beginning to show the signs of electrical failure and posed a safety risk for the future our family and home.
Now can you imagine if our home burned to the ground one day? It would be a loss of history we could never regain. So plain and simple the electrical was repaired and the architecture totally left alone.
My family loves our home and the unique history that is built right into the very walls we live in. When anyone is looking to repair electrical in an old home such as ours and the others found in a specialist should be called. It is very nice to keep history in tact. We have found that not only specialists in this area but great people to interact with. We definitely recommend them for all your electrical needs including older homes.
