Re-wire house cost ball park estimates

Older houses (eg houses built between 1900 and 1960) were not designed for today's lighting loads and multiple appliances. Re-wiring with tough plastic sheath, circuit breakers and residual current devices can reduce the risk of hazards such as electric shock and fire. The cost of re-wiring depends on the age of the house, access and other factors, but the estimate below provides a ball-park range that can be improved upon by an electrician.

You can narrow and refine the estimate below by selecting specific options (if any) and clicking Update Estimate.
