How to Choose a Good Electrician
Faulty wiring can cause fire, and we all know the dangers that come with it. That’s why you have to take your time reviewing your options before hiring an electrician.
Licensing and Insurance Coverage
First off, check whether the electrician you may be eyeing is licensed. This provides assurance that the contractor has met the state’s requirements in terms of courses taken and practical work rendered. If they tell you they’re licensed, ask for proof, and make sure it’s current and cover the type of electrical work you need. Keep in mind that some electrical licensed carry restrictions. Also ensure that the electrician has both workman’s compensation and liability insurance. Again, if they claim they’re covered, ask to see evidence. If you’re in Montreal, you can trust Ozen Electrique, a licensed and insured electrical contractor that can give you all the security you need.
Instead of focusing on just one prospect, approach three different electricians and ask for quotes (you may end up confused if you consider more than three choices). The idea is to describe to them as carefully and accurately as possible the kind of work you need. In exchange, they should give you a quote with a complete breakdown of prices. Once you have the quotes, sit down and make comparisons, and go for the one that matches your standards, needs and budget the most. Ozen Electrique in Montreal will be eager to provide a quote upon your request.
Qualifications and Experience If only for the sake of your project, hire somebody you can be comfortable around. A professional electrician is also time-conscious and will call you if they know they will be late. With Ozen Electrique, professionalism is a given.
