CopAlum Aluminum Wire Repair. Aluminum wire was commonly used in home construction in the 1970’s and is also occasionally found in homes from the early 1980’s. The Consumer Products Safety Commission Report on Aluminum wire https://www.cpsc.gov/s3fs-public/516.pdf states homes with aluminum wire are 55 times more likely to have one or more wire connections at outlets reach “Fire Hazard Conditions” than homes wired with copper”, and recognizes the CopAlum repair method as the best repair option short of a complete rewire with copper (which can be cost prohibitive and requires sheetrock be removed or holes to be cut to facilitate routing of wires leading to additional costs of patching and painting). CopAlum allows the repairs to be made without extensive wall damage. In addition, a Fox Service Company Whole House CopAlum includes replacing all outlets and switches, swap out of customer provided surface mount light fixtures and providing AFCI and GFCI protection to meet current code.
