Electrical work is not something that should be taken lightly. Therefore, whether you're looking to install new electricity or need repairs done to existing wires, it is crucial that you choose a qualified electrical contractor for the job. Here are a few tips to help you make the right choice.

What type of work do you need the contractor to do?

Most electrical contractors are specialists in one area or another, so before contacting anyone it is important that you identify your individual needs. Are you building a new home, renovating a business or in need of wiring repairs? Once you determine your precise need, then you will be better able to find a contractor who is experienced in that specific area.

Is the contractor licensed?

Before hiring a contractor, make sure that they are properly licensed. This proves that they are running a legitimate business. It will also provide you with confidence that the work will be done correctly and according to regulations. Along with your satisfaction, a qualified contractor's top priority should be your safety and that of your home or business.

Do they offer a guarantee?

A reputable electrical contractor should offer a guarantee for the work that they do, along with a warranty for any equipment they install. Note, if any equipment fails the manufacturers warranty applies but labor is typically not included with manufacturer warranties. This is a good sign that they are confident in their field and in the equipment they provide. Electrical work can be pricey, but it is good to know that if something fails after the work is complete, that is can be repaired at no additional cost.

What are others saying?

To be certain that you are choosing a qualified and honest contractor, find out what others are saying them. A simple internet search should provide you with at least a handful of reviews from others who have hired them in the past. If this information is not available online, ask the contractor if you could contact a few of their current or past customers. Recommendations from others and highly rated reviews are a great resource in choosing the right contractor.

Electricity is a serious matter and so is your satisfaction and safety. Next time you need an electrical contractor, use these tips to ensure that you are making the right choice.
