Back in 2009, CE Pro took a look at 10 wiring jobs that needed a major overhaul. Five years later we’re still seeing messy wiring that requires a lot of attention.

After showing you the worst wiring jobs on the planet, we’ve tracked down photos of what those same jobs looked like after an integrator cleaned up each mess.

Now, don’t be fooled, some of these nightmarish jobs belong to and were done by CE pros themselves.

Some of these wiring jobs created a rat’s nest or bird’s nest of wires that could negatively affect the system’s performance.

You asked for the “After” photos of the worst wiring jobs ever, and here they are, conveniently all in one place.
