Are you asking the right questions? We understand how difficult it can be to find an electrical contractor you can trust and it goes way beyond installing a simple light fixture. You need to dig a bit deeper and find out some information about the company, the employees and their credibility before making a decision. So, what should you be asking your potential electrician?
Find out below:
- Are you licensed and insured? A license is proof that the electrician has been through the necessary education. While licensing differs from state to state, it generally takes about 4,000 hours of training to obtain a license. You’ll also want to make sure they are insured so you’re protected from any damage that might occur.
- How many years of experience do you have under your belt? Sure, having a proper education is great but having on-the-job experience is key. Not only will they be more likely to have dealt with your specific needs before, but they’ll know how to deal with customers and be able to steer them away from unnecessary expenses.
- What kind of work do you specialize in? Not all electricians focus on the same areas of a job. For example, some only do residential work while others prefer to work on commercial buildings. Some only work on new construction and others specialize in upgrading old wires.
- Do you have any references? It’s important to ask for references including testimonials or reviews. Sure, an electrician can tell you they do great work, but will their previous customers attest to that?
