About Romex® Wire

How To Sell Romex® Wire For Scrap

Romex® wire a brand of housewire or non-metallic wire is electrical wiring commonly found in homes. Generally you can make more money by stripping the wires to get to the copper. Housewire has two jackets covering the copper inside. Scrapping Romex® wire and other non-metallic cable is good not only for your pocket but also for the environment so asking the local scrap yards for the Romex® Wire Scrap Prices they are paying can help too.

Is Romex® Easy To Strip?

Some people may want to strip their wire for the scrap copper on the inside, but it is a tedious task that may not pay off in the end. Because there are two jackets of insulation surrounding a single or couple strands of copper wire, you are wasting your time. You will be taking longer to strip the copper than you will be making money on it. You also have to remember that by stripping the insulation off, you are taking away a lot of weight from the load you have.

What Type Of Romex® Wires Are There?

There are many different color variations of Romex® wiring from yellow to orange, among many others. A lot of people ask why there are different colors and that has to do with the gauges of the Romex® wiring. Some have larger pieces of copper inside and that is why they are different then others. Some have the same coloring along with gauge and when that happens it is because some electricians want to be able to have a better idea when they are running wires which is which.
