5 Tips for Choosing the Best Electrical Contractor for Your New Home

electriciansChoosing the correct electrical contractor is incredibly important if you want your plans to run smoothly. At Rose Brothers & Sons Electric, electrical contracting serving Northern Kentucky, Greater Cincinnati, and Southern Indiana, we understand how important it is to find the right team for the job. Here are 5 helpful tips for choosing the best electrical contractor for your new home.

1. Know What You Need

Make sure you have clearly defined the electrical project that you are preparing to have completed. Is it a minor repair? A complete renovation? Decide when you need the project to be completed by because this can be a factor towards rather or not an electrical contractor will work for your schedule. Give your contractor all the details possible on what you need done to make sure that they can give you proper estimates and time frames.

2 License and Insurance

After you have figured out exactly what you need the first thing you should look for is an electrical contractor who is licensed and insured. A licensed electrical contractor has completed all the necessary courses and training to perform their job safely and properly. Always ask to see a contractor’s license and make sure it is up to date.

3. Credibility and Experience

Don’t be afraid to ask a potential contractor for references from previous jobs and about their special qualifications. Many contractors will have special qualifications, accreditations, or might be Master Electricians like those at Rose Brothers & Sons. All of these extra factors about your contractor could make them the perfect fit for the job you need done, or the wrong fit. An easy way to check the standard of your contractor is to see if your contractor has a Better Business Bureau business review and accreditation. You can also browse the contractor’s website or review sites to look for reviews about experiences other people have had with that contractor.

4. Rates and Quotes

It is always a good decision to get at least three different quotes for your project, more would be better, but definitely get three. Make sure your electrician gives you quotes with precise breakdowns of all the prices so you can compare them to the other quotes you receive. Because of the quote process it is incredibly important to know exactly what you need done or else unforeseen expenses may arise.  You also don’t want to compare one quote to another without having similar breakdowns.

5. Go with Your Gut

Lastly, the best thing you can do is go with your gut. Pick the contractor that you feel the most comfortable with after talking to them. Ask your electrical contractor as many questions as you need to feel secure in your choice. You need to be confident that your contractor will understand what you need and have a good attitude about communication in the future.
