Aluminum wiring need not be a house’s death knell

If you like to buy fixer-uppers as potential income properties, or even to live in yourself, and you have purchased a home built in the 1960s, then About Town Electric of Milton would be pleased to offer you some advice and professional electrical expertise — especially if you are considering rewiring the soon-to-be palatial palace.

If the house you are considering buying was built in the mid-1960s to mid-1970s, it is entirely possible that the contractor at the time used aluminum wiring throughout the house. Why? Simple economics, really. You see, back then, the price for copper was high and aluminum was much cheaper.
