At some point, almost all homes require their outlets and switches to be repaired and replaced. Maybe the ones you have are outdated, and you simply want to put in more modern ones.

Safe Electrical Outlet Repair
Many people assume that replacing electrical outlets is a simple DIY project which you can easily accomplish yourself in the course of a free afternoon. However, you should reconsider taking on this task, particularly if you have not been trained to work with electrical wiring. Fiddling around with your electrical outlets and switches can be a major safety hazard, resulting in damage to your property and serious bodily harm to you or other members of your family. If you’re not trained, don’t take the risk. Our technicians at Roth Home will be able to inspect your system and get the job done quickly, efficiently, and safely, while you focus on more important things.
Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Outlets or Switches
As mentioned above, there is no one specific reason people choose to have their outlets and switches replaced. However, sometimes having this work done is a matter of choice, and sometimes it’s a matter of necessity. To know when you need to call a professional to upgrade your outlets, make sure to look out for several key signs.
