If you have found yourself in need of services from a professional electrician, you probably are wondering who you should hire. There are quite a few factors to consider before choosing the right electrician for your project. Whether your needs be big or small, commercial, residential, industrial…You deserve to be aware what your electrician should be able to offer you. Here’s where to begin:
What are their qualifications?
First and foremost, be sure the electrician you hire is licensed, bonded, and ensured. This will ensure who you hire is actually a qualified professional. It will also cover you in the case any damages occur. Most homeowner’s insurance will not cover damages at fault of an unlicensed and unbonded contractor.
Compare their projects.
Search online or call around to local electricians and request information, photographs, or reviews from customers whom they have completed projects similar to yours for. A confident professional will never want to hide their work.
Is it an emergency?
If your need of an electrician is an emergency, you must first be sure that they offer emergency services. Not all electricians offer 24/7 emergency services. If they do, it will likely be listed on their website.
Do they guarantee?
Does the electrician you are looking into hiring stand behind his or her work? If not, better keep looking! A truly confident professional will stand behind their work and be confident the job is done right!
By now, you probably have narrowed down your list of potential electricians. The next thing your should do is get quotes for your projects from each of them. If one is significantly overcharging, this is when they will stand out and you can cross them off of your list.
Ask your friends and family.
Do not be afraid to reach out to friends and family about needing electrical services. Many of them may have a recommendation of who to use, or who not to use. They may even have had similar projects completed by electricians you are looking into and might could give you a personal review on how well the job was done.
A true professional electrician will not mind you doing your research. In fact, they will welcome it! Do not feel bad for asking questions. If you feel like you are getting the “runaround”, chances are you probably are and need to move on to the next person on your list!
