Your home is a big investment, and finding a good, reliable electrician to handle your home’s electrical needs is important.
But with so many advertisements promoting countless companies or individuals in your area, making a choice can be overwhelming and knowing what to look for can be difficult. We want to help!
Here are a few things to look for and consider when finding the right electrician for your home or business:
- Are they licensed and insured?
The first thing you should check for is an up-to-date license and necessary insurance policies. Licensing allows you to know that they have completed necessary training and understand the set standards to perform their work. You can ask to see copies of their current insurance policy to ensure they have necessary insurances and you will be covered under the type of work you need done.
- Check out their experience.
Would you rather have a surgeon with years of specialized training and successful procedures or one with less credentials and minimal surgery experience? It might not be the exact same, but why wouldn’t you select a contractor for your home the same way?
Your electrician should have a solid background and ample experience, giving them the expertise and know-how to provide a wider range of services to fit your project’s needs.
- Look at reviews and ask for recommendations.
Hearing from customers who worked with prospective electricians is invaluable when it comes to your selection process.
Browse online reviews, ask others you know about their experience (if applicable) and request references from the electrician. A reputable electrician will proudly give you previous customers you can reach out to.
- Initial communication.
Your first interaction with a potential electrician is critical. Did they respond quickly? Was scheduling and communicating with them easy and smooth? What was their demeanor like? Their appearance and attitude can reflect the quality of work they will provide.
