White Rock Beach Home K & T Removal

We met Paul right after he purchased a larger home in the same White Rock neighbourhood where he and his wife had been living. Though now empty-nesters whose kids were all grown up, this retired firefighter and his surgical nurse wife often host their grandchildren.

And what a gorgeous place for the family to unite! This remarkable oceanfront home is one of Crescent Beach’s oldest — built in 1917. The family fell in love with the marvelous unobstructed ocean views of Boundary Bay and the Strait of Georgia.

But their new home still had knob and tube wiring. As a former firefighter, Paul was very aware that the consequences of outdated knob and tube electrical systems can be devastating. With their beloved grandkids in mind no doubt, Paul, and his wife decided that they had too much at stake to not address the risks and have this type of wiring replaced.

Paul did his research and found three candidate knob and tube electrical contractors. He chose WireChief Electric, he says, because of Octavio’s knob and tube experience but also because he felt they’d have a good working relationship.

Indeed, our team very much enjoyed doing Paul’s knob and tube replacement and a few other improvements (like upgrading the heritage home’s baseboard heater circuits). We also loved sitting and enjoying the beautiful ocean view during our lunch breaks!

It was an honour to help this family, with an admirable public-service record, feel secure in their gorgeous home.
