Are you in the process of hiring an electrician for a home wiring project? Maybe you’re remodeling, and you need a quality electrician to make sure all the electrical is up to code. Before you say yes to an electrician, be sure to ask plenty of questions to ensure you’ve found a good one. The team at RU Electrical Service, Inc. of Indianapolis recommends that you start with these four questions.
1. WHAT ARE YOUR CREDENTIALS?
Make sure the electrician is licensed and has plenty of experience for your specific home project. While you can find plenty of good handymen out there, you want to make sure your property improvements are done up to code and with high standards. So check the electrician’s credentials!
2. WHAT TYPE OF HOME WIRING EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE?
Some electricians may have a broad range of home wiring experience. But for your home, you may want someone who has specific home wiring experience with the space you want to remodel, such as the bathroom, kitchen, or basement.
3. DOES YOUR ESTIMATE INCLUDE ALL POSSIBLE COSTS?
Electricians each have their own system for billing clients. Get a quote from the electrician and read through the terms carefully. One thing you may want to pay special attention to is how the company charges for labor. Some electricians may charge a flat fee for their electrical services, while others may charge hourly (or some combination of the two).
4. WHAT IS YOUR PROJECTED TIMELINE?
If you’re in a time crunch to get your project completed, be sure to ask how much time the electrician needs to finish the project. Granted, unexpected things always pop up during home wiring projects, but you want to have a general idea of what to expect.
Be sure to ask these—and any other questions you might have—before hiring an electrician for your home project. You want to feel comfortable with who is in your home and the quality of work you can expect. So, by all means, ask your questions!
