UF cable


Hi folks.

Replacing an overhead light fixture on the front porch. Old wiring was knob and tube, will be replaced with new cable.

Porch ceiling is finished. The light is less than 3 feet from the front door, and fixture is in a joist bay, so plenty of room to fish wire.

Does this short run require UF cable, or is romex okay to use?

Thanks-Bill
