Our Electrical Wiring Services
Wiring For New Construction
When building a new home, each step of the construction process must be followed in order. This process includes home electrical wiring. We can discuss the best wiring strategy with your contractor so you’re prepared for any electrical requirements for your new home.
If you’re unsure whether you’ll use that 4th bedroom as an office or a nursery, you can pre-wire it for both options! It’s better to have wiring in place just in case, instead of having to cut holes in the walls to install it later. At Doc Watts Electric, we can counsel you on the best places to pre-wire your lines when wiring a house.
Wiring For Remodels And Renovations
When it’s time to update your home, you may want to remove some walls and rework the floor plan. Since most of your home’s wiring runs through the wall’s interior, you may have to rerun it when a wall comes down.
Before you begin your renovation project, talk to us. We can locate your current wiring and formulate a plan for the best ways to reroute your home electrical wiring based on your architectural drawings.
Our team of professional electricians can help bring your older home’s wiring into the 21st century while keeping your electrical system safe and code-compliant.
Wiring For Landscape Lighting
Boosting your home’s curb appeal is a smart way to increase its value. A simple addition to the exterior of your house is landscape lighting. Consider professional landscape lighting when you want to showcase your flower beds or add a dramatic visual element to your stonework.
Lighting up the path to your front door, backyard, or pool makes your home’s outdoor areas more welcoming and usable. Adding landscape lighting to your home’s residential electrical wiring system is also a security feature.
Solar-powered landscape lights provide some level of illumination, but because they are not wired into your home, they can easily be removed or turned off. When you wire your landscape lighting into your home’s electrical system, you control when they go on and off.
At Doc Watts Electric, we can handle any wiring repairs you may need. If you see any of these signs in your home, call us to take a look at your home electrical wiring:
Your electrical wiring system should function without odd smells, noises, or appearances. When you notice anything out of the ordinary, it’s time to bring in the pros!

What is a Whole House Rewire?
The electrical wires throughout your home power just about everything you use on a daily basis—lighting, equipment, appliances, and more. That wiring can wear out over time and require your home to undergo a rewiring with updated equipment. It’s also a good idea to have a professional electrician replace old wiring because some insurance companies charge higher premiums, or simply won’t insure homes with outdated electrical systems.
Is it Dangerous to Have Bad Wires?
Did you know old wiring with broken, frayed, or exposed pieces can be a huge fire hazard? Faulty wiring is actually the leading cause of home fires. It is important to call a licensed electrician to rewire your entire house as soon as you notice any of these telltale signs.
Unsure if you’re due for whole house rewiring? Call in a licensed electrician to inspect your electrical system and determine whether or not you have to plan for the home rewiring process.
Why Do I Need a Licensed Electrician?
Unless you have a license and certifications, you aren’t qualified to sign off on the project. By hiring a licensed electrician who is well-trained and has a deep level of experience with home rewiring, you can make sure the work is completed, inspected, and in accordance with required standards. Any form of electrical work is inherently dangerous, so we always recommend hiring someone who knows exactly what they’re doing. Safety first, last, and always.
What’s more? The process of whole home rewiring can be messy! It’s best to hand the job off to someone who can complete the task as quickly and efficiently as possible.
How Long Does Whole House Rewiring Take?
The standard home rewiring process usually takes anywhere from three to 10 days, depending on your current wiring and update needs.
Do I Have to Do Anything for a Whole House Rewiring?
During a rewiring, you will shut off your home’s main power source for safety. You may also be asked to move furniture, remove pets from the area, and make preparations for an alternate work setup as the process can be disruptive. Rest assured our electricians always clean up their in-home worksite before completing a whole house rewiring.
