Things to remember when hiring an electrician

 

Electrical wiring is your home’s nervous system, and while it may seem simple (either it works or it doesn’t), it is a complex network that requires special skill to manage. Here are some do’s and don’ts when hiring an electrician:

DO check if your project requires permits.

An expert will have specialized knowledge and experience in securing permits and approvals that keep your home up to code.

DON’T tackle a job yourself if you are not trained.

A faulty system can lead to fire or failed home inspections down the road. Don’t attempt any projects if you don’t have the required expertise.

DO hire a licensed expert.

Electrical work can be dangerous. Ask to see a license or certificate before signing the papers. Remember - these vary by province so check with your local regulatory body.

DON’T forget to ask for a referral.

Everyone relies on electricity, so it’s likely you know someone who has hired a professional. Ask family, friends, and neighbors; your local electrician may be familiar with your model and share unique insight.

DO go online before hiring.

Search your pro online and check out third-party contractor review websites for reviews and recommendations from other homeowners. These sites are a great tool in your hunt for a capable and trained expert.
