Before you ask any other question, you should ask to see a copy of their license. These professional have different types of licenses for different works. Electricians that are certified by state are at the top of the profession while county and regional professionals can only work in some places and are restricted to certain tasks only.

Hiring someone to do the job only to find it was not up to code or done incorrectly will end up costing you more in the long run with rewiring or electrical mishaps.
Do You Have Insurance?
A contractor that is insured is a safe one. In the event an accident happens during repair or installation, the electrician is going to be responsible for all monetary aspects to the person that is injured on your job. Also if any damage is done to property, you can rest assured that you and your property are covered.
What are Your Electrician Credentials?
