Most electrical contractor related problems can be averted by taking your time doing just a little research. With over 35 years experience, we have found that these are the tips we would use to hire some for our house!
1. Check Their license.
Never hire an unlicensed electrician. Just because it looks like a good deal on paper, may not be the same as application. "Licensed & Bonded" is not a slogan.
2. Check Their Insurance Coverage
Never hire an electrician that does not have liability insurance coverage. This means bonded. Look for an insurance policy or bond of at least $1 Million.
3. Ask For Their Journeyman's Card
All electricians are required to be a journeyman. Ask to see the card of anyone performing electrical work on your home or business.
4. Ask About Their Work
Reviews and testimonials from customers is a pretty good indication of what you should expect for your electrical need.
5. Is The Electrician Engaged When You Speak About Your Electrical Need?
Do they seem concerned? Are they up front and confident about pricing? Do they have several options? Do they explain everything that goes with the electrical need? Do they care about your property and specific needs?
