How To Choose The Right Electrician

Homeowner Researching Electrical Technicians

Most homeowners in Monroe, NC, call an electrician when they have an emergency or if they are remodeling their home. When it comes to an electrical repair, you want to work with someone you can trust.

Below is a checklist of things to look for when choosing an electrical contractor:

Licensed and Insured

First and foremost, inquire about their license. A license guarantees that they have completed the necessary exams and practical work to perform electrical repair safely and efficiently. Always ask to see their license and make sure that it’s not expired. It is also important that they have appropriate insurance coverage. Ask to see a copy of the policies and make sure they are current.

Qualifications and Experience

No two electrical contractors are the same. Some are apprentices while others have additional qualifications and experience in different areas of electrical work. Some may even have additional accreditations. Hiring someone with master certification ensures you’ll receive the highest levels of workmanship. Electricians who hold this type of accreditation have extensive knowledge about energy safety and electrical repair.

Value for the Money

Before making a decision, it’s a good idea to get at least three quotes from different electrical contractors. Communicate exactly what needs to be done and which materials you would like them to use. You should receive a quote with a breakdown of prices, which will make it easier when comparing one to quote to another. Never base your final decision on price alone.

Ask for References

Ask if they have any references you can contact. No one wants to work with someone who has a bad attitude or doesn’t take pride in their work. A professional appearance and positive attitude is typically a reflection of their work ethic. Only a skilled professional has the practical expertise necessary to install and repair electricity in your home.
