My husband and I just bought a lot in town of Peterborough. What are the going rates to wire a house of this size? What are the going hourly rates and costs per sq foot or opening.
I've been told t's anywhere from 12000 to 16000 for basic rough in. Is this a fair price?
I believe Ian's comment is valued. I think the $20 to $25 range would be fair for a basic job.
Couple of additional things however; I would look at getting a demand calculation completed. I don't think a 200 amp service will cut it for a 4K sft house.
The second thing now is the requirement for AFCI breakers on many of the circuits in the home. This adds costs (going from a $6 breaker to a $50 breaker) for the same circuit(s). In addition now panels used will have to be larger as many contractors that like to use the twin breakers cannot; this adds costs also.
One other consideration is the number of fixtures / potlights / ceiling fans; while the client generally supplies the fixtures some of them require an hour's worth of work just to install; especially if they are on vaulted ceilings or if lining them up is critical (potlights down a long hallway).
