adding phone jacks

I have three phone jacks in my house. 1 in my bedroom, 1 in the kitchen, and 1 in the Florida room. With a business run out of our house I need more jacks.

My idea is to "piggyback" the jacks. I was thinking I could just pull the faceplate off one jack and find the srews the original wires to that jack are connected to. Taking new wires, I was going to add the wires to the same screws and run it to another jack in a new locations.

1. Will this work?

2. Will the quality of the jack be lessend by piggybacking it off another one?

To answer your questions very simply:

1. Yes
2. No

The only problems that could possibly arise are in servicing or troubleshooting jacks. It could be hard to find the origin of a specific jack in the house, but quality will be the same.

Good luck!
