Hiring a handyman can save you a lot of money when it comes to electrical repairs, but the truth of the matter is saving money means nothing if you end up with a fire or even worse, injuries or death occurs because the unlicensed person you hired did not follow proper safety protocol.
That's why it is essential that you hire a licensed electrical contractor when having repairs completed, or when you are remodeling your house. A licensed contractor attends extensive training classes and course in order to stay up to date on all of the latest safety practices when it comes to electrical installation and repair.
When you hire an electrical contractor, he or she will ensure that all necessary permits are obtained from your local building authority, such as the City of Boulder or North Denver. While the permit phase of the project seems just another way of the local authorities to take money from your pockets, the reality, is that when the permit is pulled, it ensures your safety, and that the person or company performing the work is going to complete with the highest quality, or the inspector will fail the work and make sure that it is completed to the highest standards. This ensures that safety and of your home and your family.
In short, the permit process prevents unlicensed people from taking shortcuts and endangering the lives of your family and potentially serious damage from occurring to your property. The truth is, building and electrical codes and laws are constantly changing. This is because what might have once been a perfectly safe procedure, becomes no longer a safe practice due to the nature of changing electrical parts and components, forcing new procedures to be adapted that will keep the population and their property safe and free from harm.
When you hire a licensed electrical contractor to perform the work that needs to be done on your home or business, you ensure that you are hiring someone who is up to date on safe practices and procedures, so you have to ask yourself, what is more important - saving a few dollars, or keeping everyone who will be in the building in question safe from harm.
