Default how far?

Just how far is it from panel to the kitchen? and is any of the run in pipe/conduit/flex? Is there any drywall removal necessary?

Panel to the kitchen is around 35'-40' straight line distance. Not sure if the wiring that's being replaced is in any type of conduit.
The guy told me if there's any drywall removal necessary, the only place they should have to do it is maybe 2 small areas in the garage near the panel.

Default not bad.....

Thats really not to bad. Sounds like some decent people, and its always nice to stay within the circle of referred contractors, when choosing someone to work in your home. Good luck, let us know how long it took them, and if price went up or anything.

Hi, just following up on this thread.
The work was completed as contracted a couple of weeks ago. The guy originally estimated being at the house for 10 hours or so, but managed to get everything done in about 6 1/2 hours.
Very clean job, and as he stated when he did the estimate, the only patch work I'll have to do is in 2 small places in the garage. Everything passed inspection and our kitchen is good to go electrically!

That's great. Hiring a professional should always be like that.
