Electrical reviews in Parlin
When we bought our house, we were told there were aluminum wires in it. Not wanting to pay for a total rewire, we purchased the whole house inspection deal and asked for an estimate of what it would cost to pigtail the breaker box connections and switches/outlets. The electrician gave the house a quick once over, looked at our panel, counted outlets, and told me he would get me an estimate the next day. After 3 days and two phone calls to the company, I finally received an estimate for approximately $7,000 (this was a few months ago; I don't recall the exact amount). This was substantially higher than a few ballpark estimates I received before, so we continued looking.
About a week later we had a company come in to give us an estimate for installing some recessed lighting. Their electrician immediately recognized a HUGE problem that TEAM missed... our aluminum wires were dangerously mixed with copper. There were two junction boxes in the open ceiling basement that clearly had black coated aluminum wires going in and white coated copper wires coming out. Simply opening up the box showed the wires were just twisted together and held with a wire nut (no protective coating, just metal to metal). This is EXTREMELY dangerous. The "whole house inspection" done by TEAM missed this dangerous condition that should have been obvious to any trained electrician. A "whole house inspection" that costs $89 should involve more than a quick glance around the house and opening the breaker. The haphazard job done by TEAM overlooked a dangerous condition that simply pigtailing the switches/outlets would not have resolved. We ended up doing a total rewire of the house from the service wire in and upgrading the breaker to 200 amps... obviously done by another company.
But hey, they showed up on time.
