Did you know that more than 30,000 non-fatal shock accidents happen each year? Many of these injuries come as a result of homeowners trying to fix electrical problems on their own. Instead of taking the risk, call in an expert electrician – but be sure to ask these three questions before they begin any work.
These questions include:
- Do you have a current license? There are a number of specifications set forth by each state which an electrician must meet in order to receive proper licensing. A license ensures that their work will meet or exceed a certain quality and they will be responsible for the work they do.
- How much experience do you have?There are two categories of electricians: master and journeyman. A master electrician has more experience and has earned the title “master” for a reason. It’s important to explain the exact problem you are experiencing and ask if they have done that sort of work in the past.
- Will I receive an estimate in writing? Hate surprises? We do too. Ask for a written estimate of the job before they begin any work so you know how much you will be paying right off the bat.
