Underground Electrical Repair FAQs

If you have any questions about underground electrical repairs, please give our friendly specialists a call. Here are some common questions our customers ask.

How Do I Know I Need an Underground Electrical Repair?

If you’ve lost power to your entire home, there’s a good chance your incoming power source is the issue. A call to your public utility company can confirm if the problem is part of the public electrical grid.

If it’s not, you’ll need an electrician to evaluate your home’s electrical power. A 4-Star electrical expert will assess your main service panel and determine if power reaches your home from the main grid.

If it’s not, you likely have an issue with a power leg or main electrical cable. These lines connect your home to the city’s public grid, and underground service needs to be scheduled.

There are many reasons why the underground lines to your home could need repair, but the most common issues include:

  • Contact with electrical legs while using tools or heavy equipment.
  • Aging wires or other materials.
  • Tree roots.
  • Repeated freezing and thawing of the ground.
  • Poor electrical installation.

Replacing or repairing your main electrical legs is a major procedure that must be done correctly. 4-Star Electric will send out an experienced electrician for an initial assessment. Once an underground repair is determined, we will:

  • Connect with the city for any permits or approvals.
  • Identify the location of the damage.
  • Disconnect the power to ensure electrical safety.
  • Uncover, repair, and backfill underground wires.

It’s difficult to estimate the timing for an underground repair before an electrician has more information about the problem. But repair timelines will be affected by:

  • The amount of cable being repaired or replaced.
  • The severity of damage to your electrical legs.
  • Complications like tree roots or other unforeseen obstacles.
  • Access to the repair site on your property.

Our electricians at 4-Star Electric will always do their best to provide an accurate estimate once your underground electrical damage has been assessed.
