electrical work

KNT Electric replaced all of the knob and tube wiring in my house in 2010. I have also had some smaller jobs for KNT several times this year. For both my large job and my smaller jobs the service has been outstanding. This company is reliable, the workmanship is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend KNT Electric. Thank you Bill and the entire KNT crew!

Knob and Tube in 1920s house

I needed to replace the knob and tube in my house for insurance reasons. Bill's quote was the lowest and he struck me as the most professional of all the contractors I spoke with. From the very beginning he was organized and detailed in his quote and, as the job progressed, he updated the quote as needed. In the end, the job came in very very close to the original estimate and the extra charges were all legitimate (things that were uncovered during the work) or things I chose to add to the job. Bill also worked within a very tight window for me and he was flexible and accommodating. He was also very pleasant to deal with, as were all of his workers. Aside from replacing the wiring, they patched all the holes for $1000. No other contractor offered this service--certainly not for such a reasonable price. And they also installed many news fixtures and fans. All in all, a thorough, transparent and professional job.

Thank you David for rating my service 10 out of 10 and writing such a detailed review. I really appreciate this. Your review is probably among the best I've received to date. Very concise, well written, and to the point. It will definitely help other potential customers understand the value KNT Electric seeks to deliver.

Regarding insurers, we've built a strong relationship with Canada's leading insurance companies, and we're well aware that they have been tightening their underwriting guidelines for old wiring - namely "knob and tube" for quite some time now.

It was a pleasure working with you. Happy holidays and thanks again for taking time to write us such a candid review. Bill 647-880-0881 (anytime).

k&t removal

Bill and his team replaced the K&T in my house, as well as adding some additional outlets and light fixtures. Bill was everything that you could hope for from any contractor:

Estimate was clear and detailed, and contained none of the dreaded contingencies. References were offered before I asked.

They showed up when they said they would, and the job was completed on time.

The house was treated carefully and incisions were minimal

Good communication throughout the process.

I would not hesitate in using KNT Electric for any future electrical work, or giving a recommendation,.

Thanks Bill

Knob & Tube Replacement + New receptacles, switches & light fixtures

After years of procrastination due to our fear of living through a total mess we decided in August of this year to hire Bill Tang of KNT to replace the knob & tube wiring in our 1920's house. Bill assured us that our furniture & floors would be covered in plastic & that any holes in the walls would be plastered over. In rooms where we have wallpaper he would take care in replacing the paper in the area where the cuts needed to be.

We chose to leave town while the work was being done & left on a Monday with Bill & his team arriving on time to start the job. We returned home the following Saturday & couldn't believe how much had been accomplished in such a short time..

We were able to match the paint colour in 3 of the rooms & now it's hard to see where the holes had been. The wallpaper cutouts were minimal & hardly noticeable.

There were a few minor problems with the wiring of the kitchen light fixture but within a few hours Bill had a technician come out to fix this on a Sunday afternoon!

We would not hesitate to recommend KNT to anyone contemplating having this work done. Bill takes care of getting the permits, inspections & provides the ESA Certificate of Inspection to prove your house is now wired to meet the safety code. The job was completed on time and within budget.

Thanks Bill and to your team for doing a great job.

Sincerely,
The Barkers

Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
If you can possibly leave home while the work is underway - do it. We were happy to not be on the scene while the wiring in every room in our house was being replaced.

remove knob & tube wiring, upgrade to current building code

KNT Electric are the neighbourhood experts in removing knob & tube wiring in older Toronto homes. They did an exceptional job on time, on price....at one point I had 7 electricians in my home fishing wires through the walls. They repaired and cleaned as they went; you'd never know they were in my home. Unlike my previous electricans who spent much time outside smoking, Bill and his crew worked steadily until the job was complete. I'm very satisfied.

KNT Electric

I recently had KNT replace the the knob and tube wiring in my home. Bill and his crew were exceptional. The estimating is transparent and you can easily determine the cost implications of expanding or reducing the scope of your project. The communication between Bill and his team is great and all the changes we agreed to were executed just as discussed.

I exercised my female prerogative in a number of instances and relocated the bathroom fixture, up-down-up and back again without any eye rolling from the crew or charges for the additional effort. Tim rewired an antique light that was not working and as a final gesture, Amy repaired the fence gate which was broken long before KNT arrived on the scene.

I intend to use KNT for the electrical work on the next phase of my home renovation project. If I could only persuade KNT to expand into the plumbing business, my life would be complete!

Replace Knob and Tube, Rewire to Standard

Bill and KNT Electric are outstanding. They provided a detailed written quote, started and finished exactly on the day as they'd said, at the price quoted. Bill was easy to reach by phone, email and text.

Overall, KNT were the best of both worlds -- precise in handling their commitments and flexible and helpful with snags from my side.

As a single woman and a first-time "vintage" home-buyer, it's easy to get the run-around. KNT respected my two stated priorities, safety and cost-effectiveness, and didn't push potlights, dimmers or extra outlets. They provided written progress updates on the work without my requesting them. The ESA report and insurance letter I needed arrived on the day work ended.

Above and beyond the call: My basement flooded during the work and the KNT team vacuumed up the water and lifted up my click flooring to help it dry. When I injured my hand, they changed gears and did the patching I'd planned to do myself -- out of sequence, and working around the wet walls caused by the flooding. They were even nice to my cat.

Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
The rewiring project wasn't nearly as difficult as I'd anticipated. Choosing a good company was the toughest part, since each electrician mentioned different things during their assessment.

Thanks Janesse for coming on to my Homestars page to write a review. KNT Electric strive to exceed customer expectations each and every time - and we understand the stress and frustration first time home buyers get, especially when they buy a "vintage home" with problems that just keep coming. Electrical work is our bread and butter but making sure we leave your home tidy and clean is just as important to us. Thank you again for your praise!

Service call to restore power to wall plugs

I was in the middle of a project getting a sump pump installed in our basement. In the back room the wall plugs stopped working because of an equipment overload. When I could not correct the fuse issue I called Bill. We've known Bill Tang and KNT since he rewired our whole 1890 house 2 years ago (doing an amazing, non-destructive job). Bill came by in the afternoon and personally dealt with the issue for me. He is always, helpful, upbeat, respectful of homeowners concerns, and dependable. The kind of vendor you stick with and recommend to other people. So if you have a huge project like we did originally, or just need a dependable trustworthy electrician, call KNT and they will take care of you.

Knob and Tube wiring replacement

I hired Bill to replace all the knob and tube wiring in my old house. He and his crew, especially Tim did a wonderful job, helping me with good ideas but most important to keep within the original quote. They are very well trained and professional electricians. When I was presented will the final invoice there was no surprises, everything was as planned. I give KNT electric a 10. They deserve it and I fully recommend them. Thank you Bill
