Jeremy L. says, "Sergio and his team were easy to work with and impressively knowledgeable. I threw a few curve balls at them, electrical issues that other electricians said could't be done like rewiring a three way switch to a two way switch without opening a wall and Sergio and his team were able to get it done in short order. Sergio even caught a wire that was shorting out in my fuse box that I was unaware of. I'm so grateful. I highly recommend Sergio and his team for your electrical needs." Read more

Your Electrical and Wiring Repair questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does electrical repair service cost?

Electricians charge $50 to $130 per hour to make repairs. Most electricians also charge a $100 to $200 service call fee, which is applied to the first hour of work.

Electrical work costs $150 to $600 on average for small jobs like replacing an outlet or circuit breaker, or $2,000 to $10,000+ for large jobs like rewiring a house.

How much does electrical wiring repair cost?

Electrical wiring repair costs $10 to $15 per linear foot and typically involves removing the faulty wiring, running new wire, and rewiring the circuit. If all the wiring in the home is faulty or no longer meets code requirements, rewiring a whole house costs $10,000 to $30,000.

Do electricians give free estimates?

Electricians typically give free estimates for small repair jobs, like replacing an outlet or light switch. However, most electricians charge a $100 to $200 service call fee for more complex projects because they require an in-person evaluation. Contact one of our recommended electricians to request an estimate for your repair project.

Is hiring an electrician worth it for electrical repairs?

Yes, it's worth hiring a licensed electrician instead of handling the work yourself unless you have extensive experience. Electrical work is extremely dangerous and requires knowledge of the home's current wiring conditions, existing circuits, and local code requirements.
