Hiring an electrician can be a stressful task – especially when you know that one faulty wire or an improper installation can lead to some major electrical problems. But if you know the right questions to ask and what to look for when searching, you’ll be on your way to a qualified electrician and a stellar job.
Some of these questions include:
- Are you Licensed, Bonded and Insured? An unlicensed electrician is not registered with the state and usually doesn’t have the skills or qualifications necessary to complete the job. And if you want to be protected against shoddy work, ask the electrician if the company is bonded and insured.
- Ask for referrals from friends or family members. Oftentimes if your friends or family members are happy with the work they received and the experience overall, you will be too. It doesn’t hurt to ask around to get a few opinions. They may even let you take a look at the work that we performed.
- Who will be doing the work?Oftentimes, an electrician will come out to give you an estimate and then send somebody else to do the work. It’s always a good idea to ask who will be returning to complete the job so you know who to expect and to make sure they are qualified as well.
