Add Electrical Outlets

We here at the Handiest Handyman have dealt with all kinds of electrical outlet installations throughout East County San Diego. Whether you want to tap into an existing electrical outlet, add an electrical outlet to a finished wall or run electrical wire from a breaker box to an outlet, we can help.

We’ve had situations where an electrical outlet needed to be installed where there wasn’t one before, or some furniture was covering up the nearest outlet so it needed to be moved a few feet. We’ve helped in situations where there was an outlet on one side of the wall, and they just wanted an outlet from the same power source on the opposite side of the wall. We’ve also put electrical outlets further up the wall for the purposes of mounting a television or a projector without having unsightly wires running up the wall. Whatever your need, chances are very good that we can help.

Adding an electrical outlet isn’t the most complicated thing to do, but there are important safety facts that one needs to know in order to stay safe and code compliant. You also want to have the right kind of finesse when cutting into drywall for the new outlet location so you don’t tear the paper on the back side, weakening the drywall significantly. You need to make sure that the hole is big enough for the outlet box, but not too big as to be unstable. You need to make sure you leave the right amount of wire and that you use the same gauge wire as the source. We’ve been through the process hundreds of times so we know what to look out for, what to consider and how to get it done right.

If you know you want to get a new outlet installed but have a few questions about the process and want to determine if having a handyman take care of the work for you is necessary, give us a call at 619-878-3922 and we’d be happy to take a look at your project specifically to give you an idea if cabinet refacing is right for you.
