Don’t Hire An Electrician Without Considering These Tips
Hiring an electrician on a whim is never a good idea. You should always take the time to do some research and find out a bit of information about the company and the technicians before making your decision. Why? An inexperienced, unlicensed electrician can cause major problems for homeowners across the board.
Aside from getting multiple estimates and asking for referrals from your friends and neighbors, there are other questions you should be asking and information to request. Reputable companies will put their technicians through rigorous training programs and make sure they are educated on the most current version of the National Electrical Code. Permits are required for most jobs so it’s a good idea to ask your electrician if you need one, and if the cost is included in their bill.
Additionally, proper licensing and insurance are a MUST! Illegitimate contractors often cause problems as a result of poor wiring, overloaded circuits and improper grounding. Make sure they have enough insurance to cover the scope of the job so you don’t bear the brunt of the costs should anything go wrong.
Finally, it’s worthwhile to find out who is actually going to be doing the work. In a case where a master electrician has apprentices or helpers doing the job, make sure that a licensed electrician will be supervising.
