Inspection & Code Violation Repairs

Code violations are more common than most homeowners realize. In fact, up to 44% of homes have code violations. This leaves them vulnerable to fines and insurance issues that become incredibly costly. Moreover, code violations make your home dangerous. You and your family run a greater risk of electric shock, electrical fires, and isolated power outages.

For example, if you have a 60-amp electrical service, then you may not be in local compliance if you live in Bethlehem, PA. In this case, an electrical service upgrade may be necessary (see below).

Electrical Service Upgrade

Shafnisky Electric is your source for all electrical upgrades. We upgrade your electrical service to fit your needs. If you currently have a 60-amp or 100-amp electrical service that is not performing up to snuff, then you need an upgrade.

In fact, most local codes require you to have AT LEAST 100 amps. And if you have multiple family members that live with you, then the odds are you need a 200-amp or higher to avoid tripped breakers and electrical safety hazards.

Their main focus is speedy service — if you reach out early in the day, there's a good chance we can accommodate a same-day visit.

How Long Will A Whole Home Rewiring Take?

The duration of a whole home rewiring project can vary and is best determined after our experts assess your home's specific needs, such as its size, scope of work, and any necessary adjustments. The process can take up to 3 weeks, contingent on factors like the extent of adjustments needed, potential demolition, or new wall installations.

How Long Will I Be Without Power When Upgrading Or Rewiring My Home?

The duration of power outage during an upgrade or rewiring project varies. For tasks like replacing the panel, the downtime typically ranges from 4 to 6 hours. When upgrading the entire service, the outage might extend to about 8 hours. Rest assured, we can create temporary electrical connections to keep critical devices like oxygen machines operational during this period.

Having a legitimate authority inspect the work safeguards both you and your investment. A permit-backed inspection can offer added reassurance and invaluable protection against potential litigation.

What’s Involved In An Electrical Service Upgrade?

An electrical service upgrade encompasses a comprehensive process, which includes upgrading the entire service, from service entrance cable to panel, breakers, new grounding, and rewiring. The scope of the upgrade depends entirely on your specific needs.
