John's right. This is probably a good question to pose to different electricians. You should get several bids and compare the quality of the electricians before deciding on one. The price can also fluctuate based on the way your home is built and whether or not it's easy to run the wiring to the required places. See if your architect has an electrician he/she works with on a regular basis. They might be a good option since they already know how to work with that architect's plans. http://www.crelectric.net

I think it depends on the home as well as the electrician. I would call around to local electricians and have them give you a general price. This will give you the best idea of what you're looking at paying. Good luck and I hope you find what you need! http://www.electrical-source.net/services.html

I think it really depends on the electrician first of all. I know a couple guys that seem to be overpriced but they use a really high grade of wire. You are ultimately going to get what you pay for. I would just look around and try to find the best option. http://www.rdselectric.com/index.php

It depends. Firstly, there are lots of different materials to wire with. Some cost more than others. Also, the difficulty of getting to the wiring in question. Sometimes electrical components other than wiring also need to be replaced. It can be quite an ordeal.

It would probably depend on the electrician you hire. They generally have about the same price range but it will most likely vary. I would suggest that you get a quote from a couple different electricians to see what they charge. I would make sure to find someone who does quality work but isn't too expensive! http://www.qualityelectricservice.net/Electrical-Repairs-Ann…

In new construction a very rough range is 3.00-4.00 per sq ft including tv, cable and all fixtures. Cost per sq ft is not a good way to deterime cost on a home. Bids for each job is a much better solution. ps make sure all bids come from master electrcians not joe the I can do that Guy.

Electricians usually work on an hourly basis rather than a square footage basis largely because there are so many variables about the type and extent of wiring you are expecting. The stage of pre-construction or existing construction will be another variable that will affect the pricing. In our area, electricians usually charge between $65 and $75 an hour.

Another approach is to write down a detailed list of exactly what you want done, and then call a couple of electricians for quotes for this work. Either way, ask for recommendations and references to hire a reputable electrician who will be honest and professional. The Better Business Bureau may be able to help you also.

I think it's a great idea to know exactly what you want before hiring or calling a professional! That's good to know that most electricians will work by the hour and not by square footage usually. That makes sense to me. It's a good idea to get a few different quotes from different electricians in the area and get reviews from the internet and friends and neighbors. http://www.nicholaselectric.com/Electrical-Repair-Pittsburgh-PA.html
