One of the most exciting things about home ownership is the ability to modify your home. Adding onto the home or finishing an unfinished basement increases the home’s property value as well as the functionality. Structural stability is the number-one concern of course, but it is followed closely by electrical wiring. All home additions must be properly wired and meet local building codes in order to be deemed legally safe for habitation. Our professional electricians at M&S Electric are familiar with all national and local building codes regarding the electrical system, and will ensure that your addition or basement meets all safety requirements.
Residential Electrical Additions
Nearly any type of home addition will require the inclusion of electricity. You cannot build a basement entertainment center without several outlets and proper wiring. Room-specific wiring is often recommended in additions that include a lot of outlets or have special wiring needs. A home theater or an in-law suite, for example, benefits greatly from the installation room-specific wiring. We may even recommend a separate electrical panel to control the electrical flow to the addition if we see fit.
Commercial Electrical Additions
Tenant improvement and general commercial property improvements, such as additions or tenant build-outs, must meet all national and local building codes. Commercial electrical demands are much higher than those of a residential home. Interior and exterior lighting must be in working condition at all times to provide a safe environment for shoppers and employees alike.
