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.

  • Flickering lights

  • Get 3 in-person estimates to compare.

  • Avoid hiring the company with the lowest quote as quality may suffer.
  • Get a detailed estimate, contract, and warranty in writing before the work begins.
  • Never pay in full before the project is complete.

What questions should I ask electricians?

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Are you licensed, bonded, and insured?
  • Can you provide local references with contact information?
  • Will this repair project require a permit, and will you obtain it?
