Basement Electrical & Wiring
So you purchased a home that had an unfinished basement and you wanted to transform it at some point in the future, possibly into a playroom, rental space, theater, or additional bedrooms. Years later, you are actually ready to start the project to increase your home’s value and your enjoyment.
For people who don’t understand or aren’t trained on electrical wiring, the electrical work involved with finishing a basement is by far the most dangerous and potentially deadly.
Allow 1888 Electrical Services to safely and efficiently install and wire your electrical system in your new basement.
Electrical Basement Finishing Process
To begin, you need to identify where the power will come for your basement. Is it going to be through a separate electrical panel, a basement sub-panel, or by your main electrical panel?
Unsure? Contact us at (970) 702-7660 and we will happily provide an onsite evaluation or consultation over the phone.
Once the power source is figured out and safely hooked up to your local power grid, you now have to run wiring all through your ceilings and walls for power distribution to outlets, lighting, smart home devices, appliances, and switches. Before the drywall is in place but after the walls are framed is also when you will be running another wiring for things like internet, sounds, and video.
After the wiring is done, the next step is to install and mount electrical boxes. Finally, after the drywall is in place, fixtures, lights, outlets, switches, and other external features of the electrical system will be put in.
Once you’ve installed and verified that your electrical system is working correctly, you can use your new basement electrical power to complete the rest of your construction efforts.
1888 Electrical Services is here to provide your electrical basement construction jobs, whether you want us to take care of everything or just the major tasks. Reach out to us at (970) 702-7660 or simply complete the online form.
Basement Electrical Installation
Local and state regulations may require you to have a permit or inspection before and during your basement project. In order to actually receive that resale value, you need to have that permit documentation.
We understand Colorado and local requirements, so once we’ve discussed your project and done an onsite evaluation with you, we can walk you through what permits and actions you need to take, what the project schedule will be, and what your budget needs to be for 1888 Electrical Services to complete your electrical work.
