When you take on a home remodeling or building project, there are a lot of moving parts to keep track of that an electrical installation contractor would make easier. Carpenters, plumbers, electricians, designers, landscapers – the list goes on and on.
It’s understandable that many people want to take on certain parts of a building or remodeling project themselves. If you know what you’re doing, DIY tasks can save you big money. It also gives the project a little more personal connection. If you want to feel a higher level of ownership, then DIY is a great way to achieve that feeling.
But if there’s one aspect of a building or remodeling project that laypeople should never attempt themselves, it’s the electrical wiring. Always hire a licensed, bonded, and insured master electrician to handle the wiring tasks. It’s the only way to ensure your home’s wiring is done correctly, safely, and up to building code. Here are a few questions to ask an electrical installation contractor about your new construction or remodeling project:
- What training, licenses, and experience do you have that qualify you for this project?
- Can you describe any similar projects you have recently done?
- Will you obtain the necessary permits and inspections during the project?
- How long should the installation take to complete?
- What services are/are not included in the proposal?
- What is the estimated cost for the project?
It is also a good idea to ask a new electrician for references. Every good electrician has some satisfied customers who are willing to share their experience with new customers. If a company has no happy clients to share with you, consider it a big red flag. Another great way to find out what others have to say is to check review sites. Angie’s List and Kudzu are excellent places to start gathering information.
While you ask these questions, pay attention to the way the electrician’s staff communicates with you. Is the conversation friendly and flowing, or does the person have a hard time answering your questions? Do you feel like you are bothering the staff, or do you feel like they value your business.
If you get a positive feeling from the staff members, it’s a good sign that working with the company during your project will be easygoing. If they avoid answering your questions or treat you rudely, it’s an indication that the duration of the project will also be difficult.
