Project starts in a little over 2 weeks. I need to have electrical company wrap the service wires going to the house for safety while the project is happening. They said it takes 3 to 4 weeks. I told them it needs to be done in 2 weeks, and I feel that is plenty of time for the request.

I will have to chase them, but assuming they don't get it done, which might be a safe assumption since they are a monopoly, do I have other options to do it myself or have my electrician do it? The wires are near but not not in the area we will be working.

Are you talking about a triplex or quadraplex service drop? In my 37 years in electric utility distribution operations, I can't remember once being asked/required to gut up a service drop. Primary (over 4000 volts), yes, but not services.
