Top-to-Bottom Rewiring of 110-Year-Old House

I had been planning to replace the original knob-and-tube wiring in our house for a couple of years; so the choice of company was not made lightly.

KNT completely justified my trust. They scored top marks in all categories: quick reply to request for estimate; detailed, transparent billing (among the best I have seen); work scheduled within reasonable time; very punctual when arriving in the morning and then finishing right at 5 pm; easy to reach and responsive to requests and inquiries; not rushing or cutting corners; keeping me informed as to the status of the work; and fast follow-up on one or two minor points after job completion.

The pricing was highly competitive, and I recommend their optional, very reasonably priced plastering service.

As regards the quality of the work, this company clearly has enormous experience with knob-and-tube replacement, and it shows -- they know exactly what they are doing, and they keep their promise to keep incisions to a minimum.

Ryan and Ben were the anchors on the crew, and deserve particular thanks, and I much appreciated Danny's straightforward and honest advice.

Knob and Tube Replacement

KNT Electric was engaged to perform the knob and tube replacement in our heritage (1914) home. This was not a reno, so they had to be very careful to cause as little disruption as possible to the walls and ceilings. It was a 7 day job. The team was excellent and very professional. They tidied up every day and moved from room to room efficiently and with purpose. The job was done on schedule and as quoted. They repaired/patched everything nicely so that all that was left for us to do is the paint touch-up. I would recommend KNT Electric for any electrical problem, especially knob and tube replacement.

Thank you - I can always count on John & Ryan. I especially liked visiting the job site and walking in and hearing live music.

Rewiring, Potlights and Doorbell Wiring

As first time homeowners, Danny, Ken and Tony did an amazing job of upgrading the electrical work of our 70-year old house. They rewired and grounded our sockets, installed new potlights, added a doorbell, upgraded our thermostat wiring, installed exterior light fixtures for us; all this while creating minimal incisions in our walls. They also patched our walls and cleaned up at the end of every work day. On top of this, they were very friendly and also provided a lot of practical advice. I highly recommend these guys and will be my go-to for all future electrical work. Thanks again KNT!

Recommended to us and glad to recommend to everyone!

KNT was recommended highly to us by some friends and, after some investigation and a visit from Danny, we decided to go ahead with them. That was in January 2020. We signed a contract in February and work was supposed to start in mid-March. Well, we all know what happened then. In the midst of the early lockdown, KNT was very understanding about allowing us to reschedule and, if we chose, even to cancel the work, with a full refund, right up to February 2021. We eventually decided to go ahead in September. The crew (Ryan and Tony, along with Danny supervising) could not have been better or easier to communicate with. They did a great job over approximately 7 days, leaving no mess behind in their wake. When we ran into a very minor problem a couple of days later, Danny came out immediately to fix it. If you're looking for reliability and professionalism, delivered in a personable and thoughtful way, KNT is the right company for you. (PS: I'm posting anonymously for privacy, this is a genuine review from a very satisfied customer in downtown-west Toronto, where our 130 year-old townhouse still had lots of knob and tube.)

Knob and Tube Replacement

This was the first time we used KNT and would certainly be a repeat customer if we need any further electrical work.

The quoting process was transparent, which led to a very smooth overall project. Our job came in under budget!

Communication was clear, the job was finished on time, and I’d have no hesitation recommending KNT to others.

Thanks again for the positive experience!

Thank you for your comments and your flexibility in allowing us to start a day later than originally scheduled.
We only charge for the work completed, based on our up front unit costs. The nature of the work requires a realistic estimate especially in previously renovated homes.
I am always glad when a job comes in under budget.

Upgrading electrical system

Danny and Tim and their team were great from the outset of the job through to the end. They offered valuable advice at the beginning, gave us a menu of options all priced accordingly, and applied no pressure to expand the job beyond the original plan once we were underway. They were easy to have around and they complied with the Covid precautions. They were terrific.

Knob and tube replacement

KNT replaced the knob and tube wiring and brought in 200 amp service into a 100+ year old house. This house has lathe and plaster walls and ceilings which can be hard to repair. The KNT guys only made small holes and fished the wire which made patching simpler and ready for painting. I’ve had experience with other electricians that made huge holes which would have resulted in a huge patching job. I was very impressed by KNT. Some of the work was done on rooms that were rented out (occupied). There were able to work with me to limit the inconvenience to the tenants.
The work performed matched their quote and the invoice was easy to follow. They cleaned up the job site each day as they promised. The communications of the work to be done before, during and after were spot on. A great experience all the way through. These guys are highly recommended.

Doorbell wiring installed thru completely finished areas.

KnT provide did a complex hard-wired wiring (new) for a 100+ yr home with an integration into an existing home alarm system. They had previously completed and furnished the entire home with new wiring in 2015, complete with new fixtures thru-out. These guys are PROS!
Considering the potential issues, with plaster and fishing wires, It was seamless. Perfectly executed. Tim/Bill are the dual chiefs of staff of a highly comprehensive competent team. Hire the KnT experts. Don't look back - a great client experience each and every time. Special thanks to Ken - your work was amazing. Awesome job!

Check problematic electrical outlet

Late at night, I had a problem with an electrical outlet that had sparked and burnt my thumb and nail. I called KNT Electric the next morning and Tim was able to stop by and check it out for me. Excellent service, wore a mask and socially distant. I will def be calling them in the future for other projects at home.
