We have a single floor bungalow with an unfinished basement, approx 900sq ft, with 1 bathroom. The house (according to the home inspection) was built in the 1930s. It has had upgrades to wiring (copper 100amp) and plumbing (copper).
We want to:
1) Replace the water pipe coming into the house.
- The pipe currently has lead.
2) Install a new gas range
- There is gas service in the kitchen but it need to be moved or extended about 5ft (estimate)
- There is a old gas range currently installed, this needs to be removed
3) Install a new extractor fan
- New extractor fan to be installed over the new gas range
4) Create vent for extractor fan
- Extractor fan needs to vent through wall to exterior
- A vent may exist but is covered up at the moment, or a new vent can be created
Please quote item 1 separately, and indicate if you will secure necessary permits. Please indicate if you have had experience with the Lead Pipe Program offered by the City of Hamilton.
Please also include an estimate for project timeframe and availability. Please include website and references.
I have an older house that has what looks like knob and tube wiring used to ground my electrical panel (100 amp). I am wanting to sell my house and people see this wire running over and connecting to the water line. Can I just remove this or does it need to be replaced with something else?

Project located in central Hamilton on the mountain. Work to begin immediately.
We are looking to update our current electrical system throughout our house. We live in a house built in the 70s, and the electrical does not look ot have been touched since. We have aluminum wiring throughout the house, as well as a CSB 100 amp fuse box. We have heard a lot about the concerns regarding mixing copper and aluminum wiring, as well are having some concerns as some of the older outlets do not work. We are looking to update it all by putting in a new breaker panel, rewiring the house with copper wiring, as well as replacing a lot of the older outlets and fixtures. We are looking to find out information with what all would be involved with this type of project such as permits, inspections required, timeline, cost, as well as damage to things like the drywall and the rest of the house.
I have recently purchased an investment property in Hamilton.
It is a century old Edwardian house configured into 4 rental units.
The home inspector discovered some new and some old (knob & tube) wiring plus some not up-to-code issues. Some of these include some improperly installed wiring and junction boxes.
I would like to get a quote on bringing the wiring for the house up-to-code.
Currently, there are three hydro meters; I would also like to install another one (for the common areas incl. the basement).
The house has 10 rooms, 4 kitchens, 4 bathrooms, unfinished basement with the footage of about 2500 square feet.
-37 year old home
-wiring is nonsensical, too many rooms/receptacles/lights per breaker, disorderly pattern of breakers/rooms
-some breakers not assigned?
-aluminium wiring, w/copper upgrades at boxes
-'hot' neutral wires
We have experienced a short that has taken power from a bedroom, two hallways, and a bathroom. All the assigned breakers test as working. HELP!
Our existing bathroom fan stopped working. We need either (a) to get this fan fixed (if it is possible) or, (b) to replace it with a new one. The existing fan make and model is : AIR KING, BFQ 90. It is about 12 years old. We prefer this model because it ran very quietly and efficiently.

Looking for an electrian to upgrade current house amp wattage to 100. House's fuse panel states the house currently has 100amp service but the actual wire connected to the house needs to be upgraded to the 100amp.
The house is already sold and this is a condition that needs to be met prior to closing on March 27th. Ontario Hydro will also need to come and inspect the work to verify completion for the new owners.
Quotes and a timeline would be appreciated.
I'd like an electrician to replace the dated wiring, fix some interesting solutions, and rough in an outlet for a washer and dryer.
It's a 1893 double brick, lathe and plaster home. We'll be working in about 1700 sqft. Most of it has already been removed but parts have been left for us.
We are looking for an electrician to reroute the wiring in the basement so that it all goes through the currently exposed joist space (rather than below it), so that we can finish the ceiling.
We also need 2 baseboard heaters installed on the third floor and a security light installed at the back of the house.
The house is an old one, built in the late 1800s but all of the wiring and breaker panels are up to date.
We are a property management company located in Burlington.
We are looking for a licensed and master electrician for a job in Hamilton.
We need the house rewired and the panel changed from 60 AMPs to 200 AMPS (it will be converting into a student rental).
More information can be provided on the job site. This job is requested immediately and we need quotes ASAP.
I have a very small and simple job, and looking for a cost effective repair from an ESA licensed Electrician in the Hamilton Area. The home is located near Upper James and Mohawk.
We removed an old addition at the rear of the house, and basically there were some electrical items that were previously okay for interior use but is now exposed to the outside.
Scope of work:
1. Loose wire hanging that needs to be placed in a plastic conduit and secured to the brick wall.
2. Attached to this wire is a junction box that is also not rated for exterior that needs to be replaced.
3. There is a 2-gang box containing a switch and an outlet off of the same circuit at the bottom of a basement walkout that needs to be changed to an exterior type.
4. Light fixture that need to be changed to the exterior.
I am okay with going with the lowest cost materials as long as it meets code. I have attached some photos. If you can provide me with a ballpark quote that would be great.
Replace five light fixtures with new fixtures. Replace two light fixtures with new ceiling fans, total seven installations. Two fixtures are in a vaulted area (12') and would likely be a two man job. One fixture is replacing a pot light and would require support (20.25lb) light.
I have recently purchased a 39year old original owner bungalow in east Hamilton off Greenhill Ave.
The basement is finished but I am gutting it and starting over. I see this as a potential opportunity to replace the aluminum wiring (ESA certified yearly) with copper. The house has had 2 recent renovations (kitchen and main fl bathroom) where I believe copper wire was installed.
The panel is 100amp currently.
The main floor is approximately 1250sq feet (assume same for basement).
I am also interested in putting recessed lighting in the living room and as part of the basement renovation.
I am only asking for a quote on the rewiring and recessed lighting options.
Our house was built in the 1970's,so the wiring is probably along the same timeline. We have a new range hood to install and I was going to do it myself, but the house wiring is on the left and the hood is wired on the right side. The cables are not long enough. Someone also told me that there is aluminum wiring and we need a junction box, and I should get a pro to do that. The old hood is down and the new hood is ready to go. What would an estimate on this job be?
century home needs knob and tube updated. basement is finished with updated wiring. main level is not, second level is not. kitchen, bathroom, dining room, living room, 3 bedrooms. was quoted 7400$ but seems steep. house is empty but do not want to have to redo too much drywall etc. needs to be fairly clean.
I would like to have a light fixture moved. Currently, it hangs from a hook, and the electrical box is approximately 6 feet away.
It is in a kitchen on the main floor. The second floor is finished so impossible to access through the ceiling. Ceiling is tiled, hoping for no damage... Not sure which way the joists run.
I have pictures of the ceiling upon request!
So the power in two rooms upstairs is out. It sometimes comes back but it hasn't for like 3 weeks now and I really need it fixed. I have a limited budget, due to personal and family problems. I think it has something to do with the breaker box itself - but I don't want to go messing with it. I know it's not just like a fuse flipped off or something.
