Knob & Tube replacement

Danny and his crew did an excellent job at rewiring my home. They were very professional and cleaned up every day. On time and on budget. I would not hesitate to hire them again for any electrical work.

Knob and Tube + 100 Amp Panel

I highly recommend Tim, Danny and their crew if you're in need of knob and tube removal or any electrical work.

I first reached out to KNT about four years ago when I was thinking of removing the knob and tube in my 100-year-old house. Tim came out, mapped the house's electrical system and gave me a quote. He also told me that my knob and tube was completely safe and there was no reason I had to remove it unless I was planning to sell the house or my insurance company demanded it. How honest is that? Instead of trying to scare me into getting the work done he told me the truth.

Fast forward to this year, I decided it was time to do the job. I sent Tim the old quote (which was meticulously detailed, by the way) and asked if he could update it instead of coming back for another visit. He did so no problem and we agreed to a start date.

I also needed my old 60-amp panel updated and KNT did the work and took care of all of the back-and-forth with Hydro and the inspectors. I didn't have to make a single call after arranging for the original mapping. I actually left the house for the week and Danny and his crew took over, did the job right, and cleaned up fairly well when it was all done (there's no way around living with the dust until you've mopped a few times). Danny was extremely accessibly by text during the process, often calling, and sending my pictures. One small, but nice, thing - when they had a little plaster left over after patching the many (but surprisingly small) holes in the walls they used it to fix a crumbling wall in my hallway that had nothing to do with the knob and tube job.

They even installed new light fixtures for me for no additional charge and came back two more times to do little things like installing a dimmer because one light was too bright. Again, no additional charge.

Note that the price below also includes the new panel, and all the fees that had to be paid to Hydro (as well as taxes, of course). Tim and Danny took care of that for me so it was rolled into the total job cost.

Thank you for the review.  You hit all my talking points when I go out to meet clients for the first time. Our detailed estimate is a little overwhelming at the beginning but once we are contracted it all makes sense.  My father designed it and it is foundation for progress reports, detailing work to be done or completed, payments, and project milestones.  We try to make it as turnkey as possible when dealing with Toronto Hydro and ESA.

I am glad you understand that we are electricians and not molly maids- I always let my clients know that there is no way around the dust.
Once again thank you and I will pass your kind words on to my team.

Thank you

I contacted KNT Electric as we were having some issues with our fire alarm. We are first time home owners (completely ignorant and learning as you go!). We have four alarms and the one alarm we have changed was constantly beeping despite doing everything right, changing batteries, etc, but the beeping would not stop. KNT told me what to check for, guided me step by step on ensuring the basics are covered and sorted out. We found out that 2 of our fire alarms were not working and one was over 15 years old! Due to our ignorance, KNT could have easily come over, charged us hundreds of $$ and we would have paid that regardless. Instead, they were honest, direct, didnt waist anyone's time and in a way ended saving our lives! THANK YOU for your honesty and integrity. Next time i need an electician you are my go to 100% (and hopefully you will always guide me thru my ignorance!). THANK YOU!!

You are very welcome & too kind. I remember moving into my first home a few years ago, and how helpful the Homestars site is to find contractors. I have to be honest we wouldn't have had the time to immediately come out. My assistant & Homestars is always reminding me to request reviews - I keep forgetting. Thank you for taking the time to leave a wonderful review.

Knob and tube in 110 year old house

I highly recommend KNT Electric. Best quality AND best price!

Danny managed his fantastic crew on time, quickly, and they did a phenomenal job. They were quick to respond to our questions, polite, helpful, and even added one extra light at our request without charge. One day there was a big snow storm and they even shoveled the driveway when they arrived. I could not believe it! They patched up the walls perfectly, so perfectly, in fact, that we couldn't even tell they were even there. The whole crew is vaccinated, and they all wear masks everywhere in the house. Importantly, they also got us the Certificate of Acceptance from the Electrical Safety Authority on time. This document is really important for insurance purposes.

KNT should be your choice too if you need replacing your Knob and Tube system. We had other quotes from other companies that wanted 3-4 times more than KNT. These other companies were telling us how hard it would be to do this job because it's a 3-storey house, but it was all wrong. And we know, because KNT proved them wrong.

Trustworthy and Excellent Service

Used KNT to replace knob and tube that was in about 50% of my home. From the quote to the end product they were excellent. Firstly their pricing is extremely fair and competitive vs others. The reviews from others are always glowing (they had done hundreds in my area previously). Once on site all of their personnel were tidy, efficient and helpful. They go above and beyond and I would not hesitate to recommend their team

I’d also note I was worried about the mess and size of holes knob and tube replacement would make. KNT make very small holes and offer a very affordable add on to patch the holes after they’re done. Almost zero mess and just a quick bit of paint and it was like they were never there. Truly remarkable

Knob and Tube

Fantastic company to work with. Incredibly efficient and effective crew. They worked with me on a tight timeline as we only had a 14 day window between closing on our house, painting and moving in. They set our expectations appropriately, were honest the entire time and delivered on time and on budget. What more could you ask for?

Job was half of a century home Knob and Tube work. They also quoted the worst case scenario barring a couple unknowns and the final cost was below the initial anticipation.

Thank you for the kind words. I will pass it on to my team as they make it all happen. We do not charge for the initial visit and we do not open up any devices or take down any fixtures. So your feedback has reinforced our belief to present a realistic worst-case scenario as we can't know all the intricacies of the existing electrical system. It is always easier to tell a client that we were wrong and we overestimated and credit is due than we were wrong and you have to pay more. Enjoy your new home

Remove, replace knob & tube wiring in 80 year old, 3 story home

Great job, on time, congenial & skilled crew, excellent quality, good communication. Installation was behind lathe and plaster walls with a wide variety of finishes (paint, wall paper, wood etc. with popcorn and other uneven and fancy surfaces) all patched expertly. Entire job took 2 weeks with limited disruption. I highly recommend these specialists.
