Desperately seeking electrician

Written By: Kathy Price-Robinson - May• 29•08

Most knob-and-tube wiring in older homes can't handle enough amps to power modern lives.A fellow reader sent in this query. Do you have any suggestions?

"I live in Eagle Rock, Calif., and I am looking to replace our knob-and-tube wiring. I have had a number of bids. Some who bid didn’t seem trustworthy. With others, I thought: "WOW! Really? That much?"

"I have yet to find anyone who seems trustworthy and affordable. If you know of anyone or any good source to go to, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated."

Thanks, Paxon
