You are currently viewing What’s the average cost to rewire a home?

“The amount you’ll pay to rewire your house depends on a lot of factors, the biggest one being the size of your house. Obviously, the bigger your house is, the higher your costs will be.

Nationally, rewiring costs range from $1,500 to $10,000, but again, that range encompasses all house sizes, from small condominiums to huge McMansions. In 2019 the average home size in America was 2,301 square feet so knowing whether you are above or below the average size will help you determine your overall cost.

Price Per Square Foot

According to national labor and material costs for rewiring a house, you can expect to pay between $2.00 and $4.00 per square foot. Combine that with the 2,301 SF above and you’ve got an average cost of about $6,900 to rewire a house.”
