I need an electrician to perform the wiring for my basement reno (approx 1900 sq ft). Current estimates are for 32 plugs, 23 switches, 24 light outlet, 45 pot lights with LED bulbs, GFI plugs in bathrooms and 2x 90cfm bath fans. Washer/Dryer outlets, 10 Lutron dimmers.
I can provide the electrical drawings for a more detailed quote.
Old wiring will need to be relocated to accommodate drywall ceiling.
I'm looking for someone to install a new bathroom vent in my bathroom, including getting the ductwork through the attic. (No need to put in the vent on the roof - my roofer is going to do that). There is an existing fan, but I think it is too close to the eaves to make working from above manageable, and I assume it is soffit-vented since there is no ductiwork at the moment in the attic. Putting in a new fan also requires getting electrical to it somehow. Anyway - it's a bit beyond me.
Working in this attic is not pleasant - not much headroom, and lots of fibreglass insulation.
I have a similar problem in my other bathroom, but not as tricky. Depending on how easy someone figures the job is, I would like to replace an existing fan there too, but again - would require crawling around in the attic to get the venting right (not currently vented properly).
I live very close to Home Depot so getting mateirals etc is easy.
I want to have a light fixture installed above my kitchen sink. It requires building up the area ready for installing wiring and the light fixture itself. A couple more electrical plugs in the kitchen would also be required. I own a condo in a building so the ceiling is cement.
I also need to have some kind of support installed atop of my bedroom window and to reinstall two blinds and two vertical certains. The joists are metal.
An estimate for this work would be appreciated. Thank you.
14ft ceiling, split level living room. Want ceiling fan installed, but unsure if electrical can be fished through easily. Not sure if there is room for strapping wires over joices or not. If holes have to be cut, wondering if same contractor can patch the ceiling (not a requirement). Looking for reasonable estimate, and quality work.
I have the following and i need rough estimate for this work with licensed electrician. This includes licenses after finish with work done.
1) Power to bathroom fan
2) Move 3 spot lights from their place
3) Install 8 new spot lights
4) Install 6 - 8 power outlets
How much this would cost me?
Currently, have basement with no outlets wired. Switch at top of stairs controls lights in basement, Electrical plugs - one with electrical box (breakers) and one with laundry room. Want to finish half of basement with approx 3 plugs and maybe add a light switch at the bottom of the stairs to control lights. Guess at area - 450 sq ft. The house was built in 1984. Suspended ceiling and walls dry walled. Will probably be replacing the ceiling, replacing carpet but dry wall is okay. So you will need to save/minumal damage to the wall.
I only have a 120volt coming in the house,therefore power to haft of the house intermittently. Ottawa Hydro came over a year ago.They have indicated to me that the problem is in the meter box outside . The wire going to my house from the meter is corroded , causing the power to be interrupted sometime .
Fix 9 ungrounded outlets. I believe that there's already ground wires, but that might not be the case for all of them. GFI are an option if considered safe.
Fix 5 reverse wire outlets.
Upgrade 7 outlets to GCFI (the ones safe near water).
Install two 20A breakers instead of one 30A breaker in electric panel.
Move 1 light switch.
Seeing the house is not an option, as I'm still in the process of buying it.
The work needs to be done in the last week of June.
I'm looking for quotes and availability.

I have two projects that will require an electrician. I would like to get separate quotes for each project in one visit. I am looking for a free estimate in order to determine difficulty, cost and timing for planning purposes. Looking for solutions based on experience to balance cost vs options in order to achieve outcome. Electrician must be willing to provide written estimate and ESA license number verification.
Immediate project (within 4 weeks to 2 months) - support to basement reno with four elements. 1) I forsee the need for an extension/re-wire/re-position of an existing outlet and install of at least one additional outlet. 2) I also have two ceiling lights which are pull-string style in laundry/storage area. Looking at how easy/cost effective it would be to convert them to operate on a switch (two separate lights/separate switches). 3) In main area, replacement/install of existing ceiling light and possible options for addition of ceiling light fixture. 4) replacement of two breakers on panel, (40amp to 30amp fuse).
Future project (spring/summer 2012) - replace/re-wire of three lights in bedrooms. Currently mounted on wall near entry, looking for options/difficulty vs cost to mount in central ceiling.
Test and complete wiring for radiant heat underfoor mats in 2 rooms. Rec room - 13.5ft X 18.5ft, and Living/Dining room - 14ft X 23.5ft.

Electrician required to test mats are working, connect all leads to a junction box, and install new thermostat. Service required between Nov. 19-22, with 21-22 preferred.

I'm in desperate need of 2 more double outlets in the kitchen; I'm looking to move the electrical box in my ensuite to accommodate a new vanity light (it was in an odd position and my new light fixture does not fit there properly); and, I need someone to connect a vanity light in my powder room because it's one of those that has an integrated ceiling exhaust fan (when you turn on the lights, the fan works automatically).
Thank you kindly for your help and time!!

This project involves the addition of some electrical outlets and lighting to an 11 foot x 21 foot space in an semi-finished basement. The basement has concrete walls (no framing) that are finished and painted. The ceiling is unfinished with existing electrical wiring running through the ceiling joists.
The entire basement has two electrical outlets, four overhead lights. Two of the lights are controlled by a switch and the top of the stairs leading to the basement, the other two are chain pull lights.
The Basement area requiring the additional electrical work currently has two overhead lights (chain pull lights) and no electrical outlets.
I would like to install the following:
- rewire 1 ceiling light to a wall switch in the area
- add two wall lights (for Sconces) with a 3-wire connection to the top of the stairs and wall switch.
- add six electrical outlets
- four along the walls
- 1 in the ceiling
- additional in another area of the basement (perhaps on a separate circuit breaker)
Nothing to extravagant. No drywall cutting or running the cables behind walls. Additionally, I will be providing the lamps.
My DSL provider suspects that our slow DSL speed is due to degraded cable connections - either in our house or on Bell's lines. Since the house is old and no maintenance has been done on the phone wiring for at least 15 years, we would like to get it checked and if necessary repaired or upgraded to current standards.
The wiring is in the rafters of an unfinished basement (bungalow), so fairly easy to access.
(Picture attached to give you some idea of the age & condition of the setup ... NOTE: there used to be several plug-in points for phones all over the house, but only one is used and needs to be maintained now, so what you see on the picture is perhaps more complicated than it needs to be.)
- your minimum charge (just for comming out and checking)
- a worst-case estimate (complete replacement of indoor phone cabling (the connection serves only one phone & a DSL modem).
I would like to Put a celing fan and light in the master bedroom. There is no ceiling light in the room, so there is no light fixture's box. I have the fan and the box with the appropriate support required, I need the wire and an experience electrician to put a box in and bring power to the box with the appropirate switch.
