5 Questions to Ask an Electrical Contractor

When it comes to hiring an electrician in Calgary, you shouldn’t just hire the first person you see. You have to take the time out to make sure they are capable of doing the job you want. That is why it is essential that you ask them questions – the right questions!

The 5 Most Important Questions To Ask An Electrician

  1. Are you licenced?
    You don’t want just anyone working on something as crucial as the electricity in your home. You want someone that is licenced and has the authority to do the job for you. Ask the electrician if they are permitted, and if you doubt them, ask to see the certificates in the flesh.
  2. Do you have insurance?
    Being an electrician can be a dangerous business, and accidents can happen. What you need to make sure is if something does happen, that you are not liable. It is imperative that you make sure that the Calgary electrician you hire has insurance to cover them if something goes wrong. The last thing you want is to end up being legally responsible for them being injured on the job.
  3. Can I see some of your references?
    Seeing if the electrician is up to the task, you have to ask for references. A record of their work will give you a firm indication if they are capable of handling the job that you need from them. Plus, you can see just how good they are at their position too.
  4. What will the service cost me?
    Now, while it goes without saying that at this point you would have probably asked what the electrical services will cost you, you need to the full scope of what you are paying. Ask the electrician what the total cost will be, so you don’t end up paying extras or hidden fees.
  5. Do you offer warranties on your work?
    You want to know what kind of warranties and guarantees you will be receiving from the electrician for the work they will be doing. There is nothing more annoying than finding out that you’re not covered for any work, and then it goes wrong again. Ask the electrician on what work will be covered.
