5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring an Electrical Contractor

Do you need some electrical work done around your home? Here are the top 5 questions to ask before hiring an electrical company or contractor. 

We cannot live without electricity: we use it in our day to day lives for lighting rooms, working computers, and running domestic appliances such as fridges, TVs, and stoves. That’s why, if you’re experiencing any electrical problems at home, it’s crucial to fix them as soon as possible.

Hiring an electrical company or contractor is very important because electric issues can cause problems in your home such as:

  • home fires
  • electrical shocks
  • flickering lights
  • outlets or switches that don’t work

5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring an Electrical Contractor

Without the right education, skills, and experience, electrical contractors can do your home more harm than good. Poorly executed electrical work can be very dangerous and pose a serious threat to the safety of you and your family.

So when it comes to choosing an electrical contractor, here are 5 questions you MUST ask:

  1. Are You Licensed, Bonded, and Insured? You must always ask if your electrical contractor has a valid license, bonding, and insurance. This ensures that they have received the right training and necessary education required to complete the work safely.

  2. How many years of experience do you have? Within the electrical industry, experience is one of the most important factors in ensuring a professional is able to implement their education safely on the job. In addition, a professional who has been in the industry for several years is also one you can rely on for any future needs you may have.

  3. Do who is performing the work? Before you hire an electrical company, confirm whether their electricians are journeyman or Master Electricians. Many electrical contractors will allow their apprentices to help complete the work but only a licensed journeyman or master electrician will have the necessary experience and education needed to deliver the quality and reliable work you deserve.

  4. Can I see your references? References and customer reviews are very important factors to consider! If you are feeling uncertain about hiring an electrical contractor, contacting their references and checking previous reviews can help you feel more comfortable in your decision. Such reviews will tell you about the quality of work delivered and the personality of the person you are hiring.

  5. Can I have a detailed estimate? Many electrical contractors will provide you with a quote for the services to be provided prior to the start of a project, but additional issues may be found as work progresses. Make sure these additional costs are discussed prior to the work beginning so you don’t have any unpleasant surprises at billing time.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
