Recent Review: I was able to talk to Stafford Home Service on the phone while he looked at our inspection report and he was able to orally give me some idea of what it might cost to fix a lot of these issues and how serious they might be. This consultation was enormously helpful as it enabled us to give the sellers a rough estimate of the cost we would need to spend to address the electrical issues. Once we bought the house, Stafford Home Service came through and looked at the issues the inspectors had found and told us which ones were serious issues and which ones were not. They also made clear that almost all of the issues were not particularly hazardous. After we decided what to do, two electricians from Stafford Home Service spent three days at our house addressing about 20-30 small items, plus installing two bathroom vent fans (replacing fans that did not work at all) ($800 each), installing an overhead ceiling fan in the master bedroom which had no overhead lighting ($500), and installing six five-inch recess lights in the living room ($1200) which had no overhead lighting. The total cost was $4,700. This is a lot of money but since we bought an old house with a lot of deferred maintenance, we knew there would some expenses like this and the sellers reduced their price after the inspection to account for this. It feels good to be in our new house with great lighting in our bathrooms, master bedroom, and living room and to feel that the electricity is safe and functional. We did have to patch the ceiling around the two bath fans and just a little spackle / joint compound around the lights installed in the living room, which they had told us about beforehand. Installing the ceiling light in the master bedroom and installing the two ceiling fans were dirty jobs that involved working in the attic with insulation falling down on them and running wire through difficult plaster walls. Some of the smaller electrical receptacle outlet issues could probably be done with a less experienced electrician or a handyman or myself watching YouTube but I would not have wanted to do the bigger jobs. There is peace of mind knowing multiple qualified people (the inspectors from our house inspection, the estimate done by the head electrician from Stafford, plus the two electricians who did the work) have looked at your electrical issues and considered whether anything is dangerous and what easy to fix and important to fix. We peppered the electricians with questions and they were unfailingly polite, thoughtful, helpful, and knowledgeable.
