Knob and Tube Rewiring

This has been our specialty since 1996 and we generally always have at least one of these projects

in progress. One of our strengths is that we will take ownership of the patching required to repair

the holes made by the rewire itself. As a result, our holes tend to be more ?patching friendly? and

our projects are completed faster. We will always treat your residence as a home not as a jobsite.

The start of the process is a written, detailed quotation which provides an itemized list of

individual costs for your consideration. We will take the time to help you make the right choices

for you. The Canadian Electrical Code is the minimum standard which ALL Electrical Contractors

must adhere to. It is lacking in many areas.

In the end, by choosing Langstaff & Sloan Inc. you will have found that we:

FAQ

Q.What is ?Knob and Tube? type wiring?

A. This is the first generation of wiring in Canada. Shortly after the end of WWII, it was abandoned

for ?Two conductor/Cloth covered? type wiring. Click here to see photo’s. As you can see, this type

of wiring uses ceramic knobs to support individual wires running along the wooden beams, and

ceramic tubes to pass through wooden beams. The connections are done by splicing, soldering and

taping. This is usually well done, however not very accessible for any future repairs/alterations.

Q.Why is it unsafe?

A. There is no ground wire. This presents a shock hazard, and could lead to an electrical fire. It has

no temperature rating. This is why the wires above ceiling mounted fixtures are so commonly

compromised. It is a free air wiring system and was never meant to be covered by insulation.
