Tips For Hiring A Good Electrical Contractor
I write very few articles and only advise those who
understand home electricity to ever mess with it. If you're not familiar
with how electricity in your home works, don't touch it. It can be
hazardous to your health.
I would like to give you a few tips for hiring a good electrical contractor and what I look for as a professional building contractor. I have had extensive hands on learning experience that no college education could have ever given me and it's probably worth more then I actually realize.
I have dealt with quite a few electricians over the years and there is only a handful that I would ever recommend to anyone. Some of these electrical contractors charge extremely high hourly rates and if you don't know what they are, you could find yourself in a world of hurt, financially, when the bill finally arrives.
Always find how out, up front, before the job ever starts, what the electrician charges to work by the hour and if he could give you an hourly estimates of how many hours he thinks that it will take to complete the job.
Usually if the electrician thinks the job will take 10 hours, he will give you a conservative estimate and tell you that he thinks the job won't take any longer than 12 hours. This can give you a heads up, so that you don't get frightened, when the final bill comes.
This works out good or the electrical contractor and for the person who was contracting the work. Some electrical contractors will give you a flat fee, or a fixed price and this can be helpful, especially if it's going to impact your decision on which electrical contractor to hire.
