New Construction Electrical Services

Residential new construction services we offer include wiring of custom homes, detached garages, and accessory dwelling units. Providing new construction electrical services, particularly during the rough-in phase, presents the perfect opportunity to tailor your project to your own personal style and needs. There’s no cheaper or easier time to add a host of amenities than before the sheetrock goes up.

Standard electrical components in a new construction project

  • Exterior service disconnect
  • Whole house surge protection
  • Arc fault/ground fault protection
  • Code-required outlet spacing

Ideally, a new home wiring design is specified within the architect’s plan and managed by a general contractor. Sometimes, however, the homeowner may want to add or change features after the plan was drawn, requiring a certain amount of electrical design-build. At Berube Electric, we are always happy to listen to a customer’s wishes and share our own experiences and product knowledge in a way that will help to guide the final product to exactly what they had in mind.

Electrical contractors are part of the team

New construction projects are time-sensitive and budget-sensitive. With so many contractors and materials to coordinate, schedules and budgets can run over easily. We recognize this and always do our part to keep the project running smoothly. As electrical contractors, we do everything we can to not hold up other contractors from doing their work – from first pulling a permit, to keeping everyone informed of possible change orders and their costs, to meeting inspection deadlines. A good general contractor is one of our favorite clients, and we want to be your favorite subcontractor!
