The first thing you should ask the prospective electrical contractor is if you could see their license. Electrical contractors can possess a variety of licenses for various types of jobs. State-certified contractors are positioned at the top of their profession, while regional and county electricians can only work in specific areas and are restricted to certain tasks.
If an accident occurs during the job, an insured electrical contractor is liable for any injured worker or property damage.
A reliable contractor is always up to date and informed about recent electrical methods (installation, repairs, replacement, etc.) and business practices.
References are almost as important as a license. If past clients are head over heels about their work, then they are a good choice to work for you.
A contractor might not always know right away whether a permit is required. As a homeowner or building owner, you need to determine exactly what permits are necessary.
Licensed electrical contractors often hire journeyman electricians to perform work under their license unless you hire an actual electrical company to take care of the job.
Sometimes, an electrical contractor may need to penetrate the drywall, flooring or siding to perform the task. It's best to determine a cost breakdown of services before you sign an agreement.
Always ask if the electrical contractor has any service fees, travel costs and even trip charges to avoid hidden charges.
While some electrical contractors are experts in repairs and maintenance, others are better at installations and replacements.
If malfunctions occur when the job is finished, how much will that cost? However, if you are under warranty, we'll repair any problems after the job without additional costs.
