We have a home built in 1912. We are completely renovating the basement and installing hydronic radiant heating. I am looking for a quote on the electrical upgrades. Work entails upgrading from 100amp to 200amp wiring for a 760 sq ft suite, plus wiring for renovated kitchen upstairs. In addition there are additional plugs (3) required in the living rooms and 2 bedrooms - 6 outlets.
The house is 100 years old and currently has 60 amp service. There has been some handyman work done over the years most likely.
Here is the work of scope:
Rewire top floor of house as per plans, add electrical panel on top Site Work
floor, separate wiring between lower floor and upper floor, eliminate
wiring from hidden electrical panel in lower bathroom, all new wiring
to comply with current electrical code
Upgrade electrical service to 125A \
Includes all labour and materials
Pot lights to be 4" IC type with white or reflective trims in kitchen
Plugs, switches to be spec grade Decora type
Light fixtures supplied by homeowner, installed by electrician
Hardwired appliances connected by electrician
Certified electrician needed: I need to have a heater installed and connect it to a thermostat (220V). I used to have a baseboard heater but it has been removed.
The new heater is similar to this:click here
I would ideally need someone to do this tomorrow - Friday Oct 11 - any time.
I've itemized the four things that I need to have done, as follows:
1. remove the current light fixture in the bathroom and replace with a new 24" fixture 10" above the current fixture.
2. clean up the current bathroom plug outlet near the sink that is in a double metal switch box, and put it in a single box. Also, adjust the electrical wire going into the box so that I can install a recessed 13" wide medicine cabinet between the studs (the electrical wire is stapled to a 2x4 and has to be released).
3. do something with a kitchen plug that is too close to the kitchen sink and is not to code.
4. remove the light fixture over the kitchen table and replace it with a new 42" fan.
I hope an electrician will review the things I need done and contact me to give me a quote to do the work.
Must be licensed to work in City of Vancouver. An electrical permit and inspection is required. I have building permit already. Job is probably only 4 to 8 hours.
Move light switches from one wall to another, move light fixtures, move plugs, move data outlet. Will pay by the hour if you wish.
We have a 3 pot lights in 2 of our bathrooms that aren't working, despite changing the bulbs. They currently use MR16 bulbs. We've also noticed a humming sound when the light is switched on in another bathroom (where all the lights are still working), and so we think that this light might "go" soon, as well.
We live in downtown Vancouver, and are looking for a qualified, licensed electrician who can do the work in a single service call (or offers a free estimate). Could you please respond with the rate charged for a service call, the time provided under the service call, and your hourly rate for any additional time required. Could you please also provide an estimate of how much time you think this would take?
I have a condo downtown Vancouver, I am on Strata, so no problems with parking or hassles, it is a total renovation, and the place is currently ready for the electrician, we have al the materials, and all areas where access is needed, has been created, ie, all the drywall is gone, just dow to the steel studs. I am in a real hurry, as our entire project is waiting for the electrical rough in to complete.
complete rewire of 2000 sq ft renovation in East Vancouver. 200 amp service. Separate subpanel for small basement suite. The home is back to the studs so all wall and ceiling spaces are open and is being renovated with permits, so Licensed electrician required.
An electrical plan if available for viewing.
I have a small space that required some work on the upper floor approx. 250 sq ft. I need approximately 4 power 110 power outlets installed as well as task lighting on the ceiling (approx. 10' ceiling). The commercial building is in China Town, built in 1998, 3 phase, 208, 100 amps to the unit.
At a later date, I would need a kiln hard wired to panel and ducting run from kiln vent to outlet on ceiling per city coding. I have a permit from the city to install the kiln on upper floor, the panel is approx. 10 feet from kiln and the outlet to the roof is above the stairs. Looking to build a good, professional working relationship, quality services at competitive pricing to service other patrons in our strata.
Looking forward to your quote,
Our florescent light ballast is not working in our underground apartment garage. I required a certified electrician to assist with the testing and replacement of this ballast. It is hardwired to a main light switch. As I am not a trained electrician, I do not know how to properly shut down the power to replace the ballast. To minimise risks, I would like to see if there is a certified electrician who knows what to look for to ensure that the ballast is replaced safely.
We have an older home (1950's+/-) home with some lathe and plaster and some drywall in need of upgrade to meet minimum modern safety requirements. Mostly checking wiring, adding one more outlet in the living room, replacing 2 elderly probably no longer made fluorescent rods in the kitchen. Also wiring replacement flood light over back door. House located to the East behind Catholic School on Renfrew.
We require someone to install an exhaust fan in our downstairs bathroom. The bathroom has a wall to the outside, and we would need to vent to the exterior. The wiring would obviously need to be run to the fan, and could probably go up beside the existing door frame which has a light switch. Please let me know if you have any questions about the work required.
Vancouver townhouse. Need to install ceiling fixtures (currently no electrical in place). Work required on four rooms:
1: Living room: Install electrical, fixtures, and complete finishing (drywall patching and paint) for 10 pot lights
2: In 3 bedrooms: Install electrical and and complete finishing (drywall patching and paint) for a ceiling fixture in each room
There is are light switched in each room but they currently connect to a wall outlet.
Installation of up to five bathroom fans in three units in two houses in one strata.
I would like to upgrade the exhaust fan in the downstairs bathroom (3086 Yew, Vancouver). It currently has a fan, but I'd like a higher efficiency one and preferably controlled by humidistat. I'm also interested in putting in a new fan in the upstairs bathroom. I think it would need to go through the ceiling into the attic, and out the side/roof. If you're a specialist in venting, I'd like some advice on the adjacent kitchen fan too.
My house is a duplex. My stratamate/ neighbour Judy would like to upgrade the upper bathroom fan. She may also be interested in putting a fan into the downstairs bathroom, but it would need an inspection to figure out how.
My duplex is part of a two-duplex strata. Alicia and Glen in the other building are interested in putting in a bathroom fan. If we can get something of a good deal for the multiple-fans job, they'll want to go ahead with one too.
My landlord asked me to check with some contractors about installing a 240 v plug in our house, so we can install our washer dryer. I'm not sure about much regarding what we have already and what we need; it's an old house (probably late 40s, maybe 60s?), and he just wants to know how extensive it would be to install a 240 volt plug in our basement. I'm not sure if you need pictures or a location or something.
We are owner residents in a downtown Vancouver condo looking to update our kitchen lighting. Currently we have a dated "sunshine ceiling" containing two banks of twin 48" flourescent tubes. We would like to replace the flourescent lights with more efficient LED lighting. Our initial thoughts are to replace the plastic panels with drywall (or other material as appropriate) and install several flush mount DALS LED fixtures. However, we are open to discussing alternate proposals to modernize the lighting. We need someone who can handle the "carpentry" and electrical side of removing the existing fixtures, reworking the sunshine ceiling box and installing the new LED fixtures. Finishing to paint ready state. Let us know if you are capable of performing the work and interested in this project.
