Dangers of Knob & Tube Wiring

Some people may look at old knob and tube wiring and say that it’s in good condition. But here’s the problem - old knob and tube wiring is insulated with rubber, which rots over time. This can cause major problems behind your walls, and you may not notice until it’s too late.

Watch this quick video to see an example of old wiring behind a wall that could have caused major problems. Good thing we found it before it had a chance!
