Was just chatting with a friend, she has a rental house and wants two panels replaced, hooray!

Problem is that she thinks the house is wired with aluminum and she is allergic to the idea of a full rewire.

I've not had to work with aluminum before, that I know of.

My reflex is to think that to assure that everything, the receptacles and switches, etc are all safe, and that all the splices are well crimped, would be so much work that one may as well tear out the old crap and put in the copper and get it all done right.

Opinions? Who has a good protocol for working with old aluminum?
