Selecting a qualified electrical contractor for your home or business can be challenging. It’s a little like taking your car into a car dealer or going to the doctor. You know something is wrong, but you lack the expertise to diagnose the problem yourself – and you are at the mercy of the supposed expert. You also might have difficulty describing your problem completely, or be confused by the jargon used by the professionals. We can’t help you with the auto mechanic or the doctor, but here are a few questions to help you decide.
Inquire the contractor’s warranty and insurance, and get it in writing.
Does the contractor guarantee that the work will be installed to meet code?
Will the contractor correct work that does not meet applicable standards?
Insist on a written estimate and a copy of the contractor’s insurance certificate.
