Insurance Options for Homes with Knob & Tube WiringGuide Started By b.n. on June 2013 Last Updated on February 2015 | 5 Contributions | Comments
Knob & Tube is a style of electrical wiring frequently found in older homes. Some insurance companies refuse to write new polices on homes with K&T. This gallery collects user experiences with insurers, related to this issue.
What's the issue?
Knob & Tube is not inherently unsafe, however many such homes have unsafe extensions and modifications to the original installation. For this reason several Western states have amended their building code to require inspection of Knob & Tube, prior to insulation.
