Replacing electrical wiring in masonry walls

Home Improvement Asked by Epenesa Jennings on September 19, 2020

An existing fully grouted 8″ masonry wall has electrical wiring. The structure is more than 15 years old. Need to replace/upgrade the wiring to receptacles. Can I pull out the existing wires and replace with upgraded electrical wiring without compromising the walls.

One Answer

If the wiring is in conduit you should be able to remove it without damaging the walls. If the wiring is by some other method you will not be able to remove the wiring without demolishing the wall or major repair work.
