Electrical ContractorsAnytime you need to hire a contractor for a job at your home or business, it’s important to choose the one that is right for the job. This involves many different questions to ensure you are getting the best quality workmanship for the price and your needs. So, when you are looking at electrical contractors for a repair or installation, there are a few things you should ask yourself to make sure you’ve got the right company for the job.

  1. Knowledge – Does the electrical contractor you’ve chosen have the knowledge and experience needed for the job at hand? If they’ve done mostly residential jobs, but you need rewiring at your business, this may not be the best fit. If, however, they have years of experience in commercial wiring, you may have the right team for the job.
  2. Scope and Size – Electrical contractors come in all shapes and sizes, from a small two-man team to a big company with many licensed electricians. Ask yourself if you have chosen a contractor who is familiar with the scope and size of your project, so you feel confident the job will be done right.
  3. Licensed & Insured – While getting references from your friends and neighbors to determine if they know electrical contractors who can help with your project is important, it’s also important to check their credentials. If you’ve narrowed down the field, ask your top choices if they have the proper licenses and insurance.
  4. Budget – One of the most difficult things to ask yourself when choosing electrical contractors is if they meet your budget requirements. While it is important to achieve high-quality workmanship, you also don’t want someone to over or under-score your financial means. Hopefully by asking multiple contractors about your project, the competition will keep prices fair and affordable.
