You’ve decided it’s time to have some electrical work done in your home. Whether it’s rewiring for your remodeling project or installing new ceiling fans, you’ll need professional assistance from an electrical contractor. How can you ensure you’ll get the right electrician for the job? We at Countryside Electric, Inc. of Columbus have created a list of steps you can take to find a reliable electrician near you.
1) Look for Experience
First thing’s first — experience counts when it comes to anything electrical. Although your local handyman may know a thing or two about switching a lightbulb, you’ll need to find a licensed electrical contractor if you need a repair or rewiring in your home. In addition to licensure, it’s also a good idea to factor in the years an electrician has provided services as well as the experience and training.
2) Decide Scope of Project
Are you looking for someone to install porch lighting? Do you need a dull room illuminated better? You’ll need to gauge the scope of your project to see if the electrician is skilled in the areas of the home that need work. For example, at Countryside Electric, we specialize in both indoor and outdoor lighting as well as lighting design, remodeling, and storm damage repair work. You can find out if the company is a right fit for the project by reading service content on their website or by giving them a call to discuss your specific project concerns.
3) Read Customer Reviews
You’ve narrowed down your list to a few contractors at this point. Now it’s time to see what previous customers had to say about their experience with a company. Because the electrical contractor will be visiting your home, it’s important that the electrician will be professional and perform the job with the utmost quality. Review platforms like Google and Angie’s List are great for cultivating honest feedback from customers.
