Ever since S&S first applied its expertise to residential electrical contracting, we have been known as the “old home” specialists. This says as much about our troubleshooting skills and the care and concern we put into every house call we make, as it does about the experience we have had working with leading architects and remodeling contractors to preserve and update the older homes along Chicago’s north shore and in its northwestern suburbs.
Many older homes have what is known as “knob and tube” wiring. This kind of wiring was very prevalent in the early 20th century because it was relatively simple and fast to install. The problem is that today it’s one of the leading causes for home electrical systems not being up to code. Knob and tube wiring is also more likely to deteriorate or loosen, especially if remodeling has previously been done to the home, without the proper care being taken to update the electrical system. S&S has nearly two decades of experience in retrofitting older homes with safe, up-to-date electrical wiring.
S&S is also expert in many of the most wanted home electrical systems, such as custom TV installs, security systems, home theater installations, standby power generators and solar panel installations. And because we know your time is valuable, S&S offers early morning and late evening appointments to accommodate your hectic schedule, with no up-charges or overtime pricing.
S&S treats your home as if it were ours, by using drop cloths and booties to keep your floors and carpets clean. When we do remodeling work, we use multiple air cleaners to help prevent the spread of drywall dust and other contaminants.
To give you even more peace of mind, S&S offers several free inspection services, to help prevent problems before they happen, such as loose connections, ungrounded systems or bad electrical splices.
