Looks like my wiring , with pushmatic.
What do you think they charged Joe?
I would guess around $3000-$4,000.
Just another reason to use conduit, rather than that Romex c-ap.
New wires throughout, all new devices, and fixtures, etc., and a service change all in one day? :roll:
They said the Village required a 200 amp service, so I will bet they charged every bit of $5,000.00.
If they had to do a rewire of old rope to new rope it probably would take 3-4 days, and then the repairs that were needed would cost too.
I know a fuse to breaker conversion runs around $1,500.
What those guys did not show was how the old wires often get stuck, and that would have been some good entertainment.
Gosh I hate the old cloth covered toasted ones.
